Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day 2009!


I'm giving away one of my custom Digital Portrait Silhouettes. Like these:


My giveaway is open to international entrants as well!

I'll even give you 2 chances to win!

Post a comment telling me what your favorite Christmas ornament is for one entry.

Follow my blog (or if you already do) and post a second comment telling me you do.

I'll pick a winner on Sunday December 6th!



In case you are wondering, my favorite Christmas ornament is the 2002 Swarovski Annual Christmas ornament.

It was given to us on the year we got married by a very special friend of mine (my German, social studies, and Seminary teacher - all in one!) We then started the tradition of buying that year's ornament every Christmas. We will be getting ornament #8 shortly in the mail. I can't wait to Have my tree decked out with 25, or maybe even 50 ornaments someday! It's just a lovely visual reminder of our time together as a family.

My fav Christmas ornament is this little brown unassuming box with a little blue star attached to the top. When you open it, it is filled with straw and has a baby Jesus in it. Just goes to show that you can never judge a book/box by the outside!

Mama said...

My favorite Christmas ornaments are little wreaths I made one year by stringing cranberry-colored wooden beads on ribbon and tying it in bows to make the beads curve into a circle. I don't know why, but the simplicity of these little cranberry wreaths all over my tree is so beautiful to me. =)

Helena said...

Katie's Nesting Spot said...

My favorite ornament is a little girl in a swing done in Swedish style. It was my moms and when I was little I always loved it. I was just facinated with it for some reason. When I got married and moved to CA, away from my parents in MI, my mom gave it to me. We still went home for the actual holiday but my mom wanted me to have that piece of our family Christmas on my Californian tree.

One of my favorite ornaments is one that I made when I was about six years old. It's made out of scraps of wrapping paper, ribbon, yarn, wire, and paper. I hand cut baby Jesus in the manger, and taped it all together with lots of "decorations." I remember working on it for hours!

my favorite ornament is one I received as a child, it's a "little old lady who lived in a shoe" boot and has a little boy climbing up the lace of the shoe and these little children sticking their heads out of the window. It's so fun and whimsical and brings back wonderful memories.

Jacqui said...

My favourite ornaments are my parents old glass ones, pointed at both ends and round in the middle (if that makes sense). They're faded gilt and I miss being able to put them on the tree every year! I haven't found anything for my tree that I love as much (yet).

Love those sihouettes, the little girl's reminds me of my daughter a lot, especially the long ponytail.

My favorite ornament..oh there is so many, I love them all. The christmas pickle is pretty great. My husband has given me some beautiful glass ones over the last few years so those would probably be my favorites!

Desiree said...

every year my family decorated our tree different. We had themes, one year it was 101 dalmation figurines from mcdonnalds, one year it was white decorations, one year it was red, one year homemade. Since we never really used the same decorations I don't really have a favorite. My favorite theme was when we put up the dalmations though - each one being different. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. -dez

My favorite ornament... well, I really like the ugly painted salt dough clay and bean ones I made with my family when I was three. My mom saved them for me. It's kind of a joke in my family, but I really do think it's cool! As for a pretty ornament... My sister painted a nativity scene onto a glass ball, and it is gorgeous.

mommymae said...

this is a hard one...my favorite ornament is probably a hallmark mouse in a matchbox from when i was a kid.

Beautiful blog! My favorite ornaments are from a set a friend made (giving one a year for several years) of paper-pieced quilting. They are so tiny and delicate.

Jennifer said...

My favorite ornament is the ornament my grandmother and grandfather received as a wedding present almost eighty years ago! It was glass painted bright blue, but now the paint is gone but a few little dots. It always hangs in the same spot every year!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Urban Crunch said...

My favorite ornament is a flimsy little ornament I recieved in first grade. We had an elf at school that left an ornament on a different child's desk each day. It is such a fun childhood memory of mine.
I have to tell you about my least favorite ornament too. When I was very young we had gingerbread man and a gingerbread woman ornaments made from clay or something like that and they smelled of gingerbread. Well, I ate one. Bad idea. Now everytime I smell them I feel ill. I finally threw out the one I didn't eat a year or two ago.
Thanks for the giveaway

Wow! great giveaway!

My favorite ornament is one I made with clay in my first pottery class. I stamped an image of Jesus, Mary, & Joseph and then painted in details. I guess it's egotistical of me to love this the most, but it reminds me of this class and the wonderful friends I made there.

Thanks for the chance to enter!
