A few weeks ago, that sweet Diane from Lavender Dreams hosted a giveaway for two adorable prim stocking ornaments that she made herself, each with an organic peppermint lip balm tucked inside from Eco Natural Soap. Diane gave two away with the hope that the winner would pass on the second to someone else.
Ann at A Hole in the Basket Primitives was the lucky winner of the two stockings, and being the generous person that she is, held a giveaway of her own to select who would receive the second stocking. Plus, she added in a wax snowman face tart from Brandy of The Lil' Prim Cabin on Etsy.
And I was lucky enough to be the winner! Not only did I get a sweet little handmade from my friend Diane, but also some other goodies to try from two other handmade sellers. And it's all thanks to Ann's generosity.
This is one of the reasons that I love blogging...the wide open hearts and arms of the bloggers, who share their lives and talents with others. I'm now starting a collection of the handmades from my blogging friends and can't wait to add to it in the coming year.
If you haven't yet "met" Ann and Diane, I hope you'll pop over to their blogs; they are both wonderful talented ladies that I'm sure you'll love as much as I do.
