  1. Angels! I have many angels that adorn my house at Christmas. Some I've made - wall quilts, crocheted, beaded - others have been given to me. They remind me of the peaceful time that Christmas should be. Great giveaway - thanks for the chance to win.

  2. I have a pretty traditional and non-crafty approach to holiday decorating -- I did make our christmas stockings, but otherwise I like popcorn and cranberry garlands, lots of Christmas lights, and a beautiful tree with a mish-mash of well-loved ornaments as the focal point!

  3. I am a follower & love Aneela Hoey's fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win some.

  4. Christmas table runners is my current Favorite Thing. I have an over-abundance of Christmas fabric, so that's what everyone is getting for Christmas. Plus it's a great way to decorate, whether on the dining room table or the coffee table (OK, I'm rationalizing because it's mostly a great way to use up my Christmas fabrics).

  7. there's ONE thing I haven't done since I was a kid in Denmark, a real pine center piece, you start with a lump of clay and then pine branches and add them around in a circle and then put a large candle in the middle, they were so much fun, but I'm over here now and don't see anything like it around...
