I think it's time for me to do another giveaway*updated with more goodies**NOW CLOSED

I just got a huge box from American Crafts today and think it would be fun to do a giveaway.

Would you be interested in some fun new scrappy stuff?

Just leave a comment here telling me your favorite holiday tradition and I'll enter you in the drawing.

The winner will be chosen totally at random and I'll just throw together some AC for you to enjoy. Maybe I'll throw in some of the brand new Bo Bunny, too, since I have all of the new releases and haven't gotten to play with them yet and Kris at Bo Bunny is so generous and let me keep the new stuff even though I couldn't stay on the team. I really am so lucky. Maybe I'll throw in some Jillibean and some SRM and some Creative Charms, too. I have a lot of great things in my scrap room that have gotten lonely since I haven't been able to scrap much over the last month or so.

As soon as I choose what I'm going to include I'll edit this post with a picture of the goods.

how does that sound?

It'll be like an early Christmas for you!!!

I'll keep this open until the end of next week and then do a drawing for one lucky winner.

sounds good to me!!!! I love reading "the night before christmas" to the kid in our new jammies (the one present they get to open xmas eve). Just a fun and anxious night :)

Donna VW said...

Sounds like fun - count me in. The only thing better that AC goodies are free AC goodies. Thanks for a chance to win.

Donna VW said...

Oh, I forgot to tell you my favorite tradition - I love going to church on Christmas eve with my family. I love the carols and the candlelight.

Christi said...

oh pick me pick me! i am an american crafts junky. My favorite tradition is putting up the christmas tree the day after thanksgiving. Even though my family does the mad black friday shopping, we still have enough energy left to get the tree up in the afternoon.

Nitasha said...

Yes, I think it would be extreamly fun to win some AC goodies! One of my favorite holiday traditions is baking cookies {pillsbury pre-made of course- lol} w/ my kiddos and sitting them out for Santa. My boys are to the age that they really don't believe in Santa, but it's still fun to try and convince them that if they don't believe, they won't receive gifts from Santa!

Karen B. said...

I'd love to win some AC goodies! I honestly truly and absolutely love reading to my two boys The Night Before Christmas. Before we had kids, I would have my husband read it to me, just as my father did when I was little! Thanks for the chance to win.

Deanna said...

Well aren't you a sweetheart! Which btw, HUGE congrats on your latest news! :D :D :D I'm so excited for you! And I was way sick and tired this last time around too. Don't feel bad. The mojo does come back. ;) As far as traditions are concerned, I really love being at my home church on Christmas Eve. It just seems to *make* my Christmas.

Hilde/Scoobie said...

Erica Hettwer said...

What a sweet thing to do!!! I hope you're feeling better, your scrappy stuff needs you! LOL! My favorite tradition is to lay down under the Christmas tree a look up at all the pretty lights. Miss Thing's going to be old enough to do that with Little Man and me this year! :)

Stacey said...

My favorite tradition is making Operation Christmas Child Boxes for my kids.

ruth said...

My fave tradition is our wacky Christmas dinner. It's very non-traditional and has always consisted of only the foods the boys wanted for that meal. :) They are grown now, but baked mac & cheese, meatballs, popcorn shrimp and nachos and cheese are still always on the menu in addition to other funky foods. :)

Cynthia B. said...

My favorite holiday tradition is counting down for Christmas! We have several advent calendars, and my kids take turns moving the numbers down 'til the big day. It's that sense of anticipation, excitement for the holidays that always makes this tradition my favorite. :)

janetg said...

Such a nice giveaway!!!! We've had the same Christmans tradition since our girls were little...on Christmas Eve they can open one gift - the gift is ALWAYS new Christmas PJS, so they look cute for all the pictures!!!It hasn't been a surpirse for years but they still look forward to the gift just as much!

Anthea said...

awesome give away!! very generous!!

I love that when I was growing up there was a street that had every house decorated and leading up to christmas they would close it off so that the public could walk up and down it looking at each house. Every year we went there on Christmas Eve and then went home to christmas music, yummy food and lots of family talking and catching up. I come from a huge family so it is the only time of the year we all get together.

goatesgirl said...

whatever you decide to throw together would be excellent to receive...well you asked for favorite holiday traditions and mine is making placemats...I know that sounds weird but every year for thanksgiving and sometimes christmas, we make placemats to decorate the table...usually we personally them for each guest and most times we laminate them so they can be reused

craftymom205 said...

My favorite holiday tradition is to get together with family at my dad's house and celebrate Christmas.

Tanya Tahir said...

Becky, you are way too kind!!! I bet you must have alot of stuff hey. Every year we love to take a drive around to look at the lights on all the houses. There is a street in a suburb nearby to us, where every house participates in a Christmas lights competition and they go ALL OUT with their lights. The whole street is such a great atmosphere, there's music and people everywhere just looking at all the displays outside the houses. We love taking Jai to do that every year - and of course he loves it too!

Rach H said...

My favorite holiday tradition is our Christmas Eve brunch. We all get together and eat, and eat, and eat! I love start a busy day of family and church with the best food and closest family. We all gather around to hear my Step-dad read How the Grinch Stole Christmas to all of the children!

Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway!!!!!!!

Just a simple gal said...

You are so sweet and generous! I am going to be doing a RAK in December. I have some stuff that I know I won't use so I need to purge. My favorite tradition is sitting at the diningroom table on Christmas eve listening to Christmas music and wrapping gifts. I love it!

Sherri said...

Awww...how sweet of you Becky. It would be totally awesome to receive a pre-Christmas scrappy gift, and AC & Bo Bunny, and all their scrappy friends to boot - whoo hoo! My fave xmas tradition is going to church on Christmas Eve, then coming home and watching the Polar Express with hot chocolate and pop corn. It's been several years already and the tradition is still going strong.

Arlene said...

Everyone, including me, is saying "me, me" and it's always fun to raise your hand for a give-away. Thank you so much for the offer!

Jocelyn said...

What fun!!!! My favorite Holiday tradition is bringing the boys over when the tree is decorated so they can search for the special PICKLE ornament.....they get a little gift for finding it!!! The joy in their faces warms my heart!!!

Char said...

My favourite family holiday tradition is our annual decorating party. All the kids come over and we have snacks, play Christmas carols and decorate the tree and house! It's really fun!

Cathy Bautista said...

That's so generous of you Camilla!!! Thanks for the chance to win. Our fave holiday tradition is our entire family (both my husbands' and mine) attend a mass on christmas eve and then we have dinner after. We normally get a really really long table because we're a group of 30! :) It sure is a tradition we don't miss! Thanks again! - Cathy

Leah Killian said...

I collect Christmas picture books and I wrap them all before thanksgiving and we open one or two each night for bedtime stories during the Christmas season :-)

Laura T. said...

Wow - what a generous gift! Our favorite tradition for Christmas every year is for my son to open up the drawers of the advent calendar every day in December to see what surprise is inside.

Rebecca said...

My favorite holiday tradition is baking, frosting and decorating cookies. I used to do it with my Mom when I was a kid--we would bake and bake and bake all day and get giddy and silly and laugh and laugh. I have started to introduce the tradition to my kids :)

Natalie Elphinstone said...

My favourite tradition is Christmas lunch with just my immediate family. I do love the bigger get-together's too with all the cousins and extended family, but I especially love it with just my family the most. Perhaps because it reminds me more of when I was a kid?!

Annika said...

My favourite Christmas tradition is baking saffron buns with the children! Yummy!

Heather said...

At Thanksgiving dinner, my family takes turn going around the table and each person says three things they're thankful for. It really keeps the thankfulness in Thanksgiving, and reminds us of all that we are blessed with.

Paula said...

Thanks so much for this chance to win! Making gingerbread houses is tied with decorating the tree at our house!

Amy Megan said...

We have a family cookie day every year. It's a nice mix of moms, sister-in-laws, aunts and nieces. We usually end up with over a dozen kinds of cookies to nibble on and give away over the holidays. Some of my all tme favorite photos were taken on our cookie day.

Ginny said...

Advent calender is one thing my girls always look forward too. I even still pick up one for my brother, lol.

Sophia said...

You are so generous Becky...TFS

My fav Christmas tradition is getting my girls to help me trim the tree, it is one thing we love doing each year and so look forward to it.

Michelle said...

Thank you for the giveaway-My favorite holiday tradition is the Christmas books I give my kids on Christmas eve. We open them and read them. WE now have quite a collection. They are put away until Christmas time each year, so it is so fun to get them out again.

lena hallqvist said...

Hi. I´d like to get the gift because my mojo just came back. My favorite tradition is going out into the wood and getting me a christmastree with my family.

Samantha said...

For me, it;s playing the first Christmas carol record "The little drummer boy", it's on cd now. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas in my home without this tradition.
Thanks for the chance to win Becky

Lori Mancini said...

THanks for the chance!

Victoria S. said...

MY Fave holiday tradition is making Christmas cookies with the girls and opening stockings on Christmas Eve-- love to find a candlelight service too on Christmas Eve.

KateB said...

our fav xmas tradition? Christmas Eve, kids in pjs, loaded in car with a snack and we drive through our town's Festival of Lights and they play holiday music through the radio-takes 1.5 hrs and they are tired and ready for Santa when we get home!

Zarah said...

I don't know whether or not I can play, since I'm across the big puddle but... IF I am, I wanted to go for it because... wow. You're a bit insane, luv - in a good way! That's like the stash of a YEAR, you know? :D

My favourite tradition is a strange one, I think. DH and I celebrate Christmas Eve (that's when we celebrate X-mas in Sweden) on our own and I love that. It's all warmth and love and comfort. In the evening we usually take a long walk and look at all the lit up houses with all the trees and decor... I love that. I think it's my favourite bit! :D

Ginnifer said...

Weird..I thought I already commented on this. Anyhow, great giveaway!

My favorite tradition is opening Christmas Eve PJ's with the kids, then watching A Christmas Story all night long on TBS.

Whatever said...

Great giveaway!!
My favorite tradition is decorating the tree two weeks before Christmas. I love Christmas decoration!!!

Chantal said...

I love decorating the Chrissy tree and basically decorating the house for Christmas. :D

Gems said...

Wow that is some beautiful stash! You are very generous :)
I think my favourite tradition is just spending time with all the famiy, having fun, eating gorgeous food and sharing gifts. What can be more special than spending time with those you love?! :)
xx

Gwen B said...

What an amazing giveaway! I am about to start this hobby and would love to have a stat up stash like that.

Favorite Christmas tradition that we do is attending church mass 9 consecutive days before Christmas, the last day will be on Christmas Eve. It has been our tradition for ages and was believed that every time you complete this, a wish will come true

Tracy said...

My favourite tradition is buying ONE new ornament for the tree - has to be ultra-special - and then decorating the tree with my 14-yr old son ...

Would loooove to win ...

Love, Tracy G

Arjanne said...

This is an awesome giveaway! My favorite tradition is setting up the Christmas tree!

Rocio De Hoyos said...

Love the giveaway!! My favorite tradition is to bake cookies with my mom so we can give them as a gift to the family and friends!

Sarah Mullanix said...

Awesome Giveaway!! My favorite holiday tradition (besides all of the food that each family member is known for making every year) is that my mom always made us wait at our bedroom door every Christmas morning until she turned on lights and got her camera ready before we were allowed to come into the room to see our Christmas presents which resulted in fabulous photos of all the kids darting into the room with fantastic expressions on our faces so I have decided to continue this tradition with my own kids and just LOVE it!

Britt said...

Oh me oh my! Lady, you are just too good to your readers! And soooo generous to give up all that loot!

Hope you get a ton of traffic here - I'm gonna go post this on FB.

xoxo

Shell said...

well our holiday traditions have had to change just a bit - because I am from the southern hemisphere where Christmas is summertime!!.. - and now I live in the northern hemisphere - it's all topsy turvy LOL. So a new tradition we have started is the going out and cutting down of the Christmas tree at one of the many farms around here. Always a fun day - we take lots of pics (now we take video!!) and then we all go out for a late lunch early dinner - it is always a fantastic day!

curlyqmosaics said...

OMG! What a massive giveaway! You are too generous! What holiday traditions do we have? Every since the first Christmas my husband and I were together, we have what is called our "family tree." It is in addition to our regular/massive Christmas tree. The only ornaments hung on this particular tree are ones that we give to one another each year. We each pick a special ornament about each other with some type of symbolic meaning. My 2 boys receive them as well. Since we have started this, we have about 60 ornaments on the tree now, each with it's own meaning. Not to mention each of my boys will have a set of ornaments to take with them when they grow up. I love it more every year!

Terri L said...

We always have Enchaladas and Tacos on Christmas Eve. It was something my husband and I started our first year and now 22 years later have kept it going.

Wendy said...

oh my!!!! you are sweet to offer all this stuff!
My fav tradition is to listen to the same music while putting up the xmas tree...it is the oldest one from the Carpenters! they were around years ago. It is old and scratched but we always do it every year!

Sue said...

Great giveaways Becky! My favourite Christmas tradition is having Christmas dinner with the extended family and watching the children open the presents with delight. :)

Monique said...

Oh wow Becky there's so much!!!! You're very generous!!

My fav Xmas tradition is when just the 5 of us (plus the dog) gather around the tree on Christmas Eve to open all the parcels (with Christmas carols playing in the background). :-)

Thanks again!!

Jodi Releford said...

Wow! That is a lot of scrapping love to give away. My two favorite traditions are decorating the house(just makes it feel so cozy and festive) and acting out the nativity on Christmas Eve.

Kylie said...

What a great giveaway - thanks so much for being so generous! My favourite holiday tradition is getting together with a group of friends to make gingerbread houses, and then seeing the kids' faces the next morning when they see what I've created.

Tanya said...

Look at all that loveliness!! My fav Xmas tradition is decorating the tree. We make hot chocolate and popcorn and crank up the tunes. We dance around and be silly and at the end my hubby lifts our daughter so she can put the angel on the tree and the look on her face of pure delight is priceless.

Janelle said...

We collect Christmas ornaments when we go on vacations and and things so decorating the tree each year brings back lots of wonderful memories!!

I'm thinking of you and I hope you are all doing well!
