Season's Giving Year 7



Happy New Year! 
Wow can you believe that this is the 7th year for the season's giving blog hop? I am so thankful tat Latisha can up with idea of this blog hop as a way to thank our readers by giving them a little something. Every single blog on the hop is giving something away so you will want to make sure you hop along and leave comments. I am the last stop on the hop so if you came here first you will need to go to Lawn Fawn to start the hop so you don't miss out on anything. I have a complete list below in case you get lost.
For my giveaway I was fortunate enough to attend Junkie fest this past summer and I received some things that I already had or they are not my style so I thought I would pass them along to one of my readers here. Here is a snapshot but I may add more :)


Here are the deets for be eligible to win my prize, first I would love for you to follow me here on my blog and also follow me on instagram (@cealp). Leave a comment telling me what was the best gift you received this year.
Commenting will remain open until 11:59pm EST Saturday January 5th and I will announce my winner here on my blog on the Sunday January 6th.
My giveaway is only open to those in the US unless you are willing to pay shipping outside of the US if so please leave that in your comment as well. 


I also have a post below that is for our January release at Technique Junkie Stamps. Please scroll down and see what's new, here's a peek



I wish y'all a very blessed 2019!

  3. Hi Ceal,
    I subscribed to your blog by email and am following on IG. My favorite Christmas gift was a little cash to spend at the LSS for their Boxing Day sale. The proprietress provides a "pizza sized" box and anything a stamper can fit inside is sold at 50% off. I had fun selecting some new goodies and breaking them in.
    Best wishes for a blessed 2019.

  71. Wow! What a fabulous prize; thanks for the chance to win! I just started following your blog via email. My favorite gift was hand made by my 12 year old daughter. All on her own (after my husband showed her how), she cut, sanded and glued together some 2x4s. Then she created her own stencils and painted "This Mom Rocks". The "This Mom" is in turquoise and "Rocks" is in purple and covered with glitter. I LOVE it!! She is so creative and comes up with all kinds of creative idea on her own.
