My Christmas Giveaway!

Holiday Greetings!
As many of you know, this has been a particularly difficult year for my family.  Although I still have moments of deep sorrow, I know that God is near and holding us tight.  I also know that the twins are in Jesus's arms, safe and sound.  In that I find comfort.  So in honor of Emma and Myla, I am having a giveaway for Christmas and I invite you to enter.  My only request is that you already be a follower or become one.  Please let me know how you chose to follow my blog, through Google Friend or Linky Followers.  I don't know how to track email followers. (If there is a way, someone show me Please!!)  I so cherish the friendships I have made through blogging and always appreciate your sweet comments.  
The prizes are two bottle brush trees, hand~decorated by me.  I will have a few more goodies included, but haven't decided what yet.  All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post, with email address if yours doesn't show, so I can contact you.  I will appreciate you sharing this giveaway with others, but it isn't mandatory.  I will draw a name on December 10th. 

Thank you so much to all my followers.  I can't express how humbled I am that you would take the time to pop in to my little blog.  Have a wonderful week, everyone!

What a hardship that would be hard to bear. My heart goes out to you and your family. These bristle trees are beautiful! What a wonderful tribute to your twins. You are very talented.

My sympathys go out to you, three years ago we lost a precious grandson who was a twin, one lived and one didn't make it. They were so very tiny. I too know our little Grant is in the arms of Jesus and we must wait to meet him. It is sad that his brother Zach must go on without him. Take care and remember that there are many out there who understand the pain you are feeling.

I am a Google follower. I love bottle brush trees and yours are so cute.

Rebecca Nelson said...

You are RIGHT my sweet friend. Your babes are in the arms of Jesus. I know you still must be hurting and my heart hurts for you. I hope you are comforted by knowing He won't allow what you can't bear.

Your work is fabulous. Would love to own anything. I follow on Google Friends.

Love, Rebecca

Your lovely trees caught my eye.But after I reading your entry I went way back.They are not near as lovely as he spirit,grace,and dignity your and your family have shown in your loss..My heart and prayers go out to you and yours.
Please do not include me in your give away.Your words have provided me with much needed inspiration-that is enough.Thank you.

Hi Cindy...your trees are so very sweet. Thanks so much for a chance to win them.
I haven't visited many blogs in long time. Today I was finishing up some Christmas decorations and unpacked my little trees that I bought from you last year, so I thought I'd stop by. I'm sorry, I didn't know about your dear grandbabies. I can't even imagine what this past year has like for you. You and your family are in my prayers...I pray He fills you with peace this season.


Beautiful, please enter me, I would love to have them in my home. Thanks, Cyndy
