You might remember ThanksGIVEaway from last year?  If not, it is basically my way of saying thanks for being awesome, fellow humans.  And it is my way of focusing on the second part of Thanksgiving.  We are all pretty good at the "Thanks" part, so this is my way of tuning in to the "Give" part.  Nothing huge or fancy, just a few little items I put together, little gifts from me to you.  And since I only have what, ten? people who read this blog, your chances of winning are sky high.  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you'd like to win!  I prefer one comment per item, it just helps me stay organized.  But I don't really have any rules, and I am reasonably intelligent, so I can probably figure it out even if you want more than one thing and put it in the same comment.

ThanksGIVEaway closes on Dec. 1, 2012 at midnight.  Winners will be announced Dec. 3, 2012.

  1. I'm first! May I get some of your delicious Christmas chocolates? Miss you Ame!

  2. I love your applique pillows! You are so talented! How much I miss our old sewing group :(
    PS We will be in town this weekend. Hope to see you at church on Sunday! It has been a long time.

  3. I want the Cinderella picture and I will save it for you to finish, just like I did your coloring books. I may give you a dime. I like all the pictures, of course, I don't want to be greedy.

  4. I would like some chocolates, those sound so yummy!

    My Sarah would like the picture of Ariel, her favorite (next to tangled, reason being these two don't have "fancy hair" and don't wear shoes"!)

    But I'm really liking the bird pillows. Too much to choose from!

    I love that you are so fun Amy! What a good idea to focus on not just the thanks but the giving. We've been focusing on giving service to eachother.

  5. I like both of those bird pillows, they are so cute! How long did they take you to make?!

  6. 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14. Thank you! And I really did think about leaving that many comments, but then I decided not to. You're pretty smart. ;)

  7. I'm into the acorn magnets. I also like Cinderella scrubbing and Cinderella and the rainbow dress by Hanna. That's impressive.

    You're cool, Ames. Thank you.

  8. I like the perfume...all I smell are poopy diapers around here! -crunch

  9. 1, 5, 8, 12, 13, 14 are all fantastic! Thank you! :)You are super nice, and super fun! :)

  10. I would love to try some new perfume! You are amazing Amy. Miss you!

  11. My picks are 3,7,11,13,14

    You rock! As Always.

  12. I'll enter for the Velocity perfume. I haven't smelled any of them, but I'm just going to gamble and say that's the one for me :)
