The "Happy New Year Giveaway!" is Here!!

Happy New Year to You All!!!

I am so very pleased to to be hosting my first ever giveaway here at Just Bee 'n Me! I am celebrating not just the beginning of another new year, but the hopeful expectation for a year full of blessing and promise! I am celebrating my new-found friendships right here in the sweet little village called Blogland - wow, I am SO grateful for you all!! I am also marking a special personal milestone for me in that I have finally completed a calendar of my original designs - something I have wanted to do for forever... SO, it's time for a bit of a celebration!! I hope you'll participate, and tell your blog buddies too!!

Here's the haul for the lucky winner
(instructions at the bottom of the post)...

The very first copy of "My Cup Runneth Over" 2008 Calendar

Vintage (1954) Family Circle Dessert Cookbook

English teacup & saucer and vintage embroidered dresser scarf

Bookmark made from my original licensed design for Universal Designs, Inc.

A pair of sweet vintage birdie candle holders

A Mary Englebreit assortment including a journal, stickers, and trinket box

The latest issue of Romantic Country magazine

SO - here's how it works. To be eligible for the drawing, please leave a comment to this and only this post between now and 10:00 pm Central time next Tuesday, January the 8th. When you comment, please be sure to leave an email address or blog link if you have one so I can inform you if you win. I will announce the winner Wednesday morning the 9th. I can't wait!!

I will try to make a banner ad available for the drawing if you'd like to post it on your blog - but meanwhile, please feel free to mention this contest to your readers - I'd really appreciate it!!

PS - those of you that have done blog giveaways before, please let me know if there is some big thing I am missing or haven't mentioned yet - thanks for your help!

  8. I KNEW it. I was going through some gift catalogues at work, this week, picking what to order to refill our "Pass it on" cards and bookmarks. I saw a bookmark and said, "That has to be a Becky design." And, it is the same bookmark you have posted here. *grins*

    What lovely giveaways! I love perusing my list of "creativity blogs" for inspiration and motivation. I lugged my sewing machine several hundred miles as I nurse a daughter recovering from back surgery--and surfing this blog is welcome company as I enjoy the "fellowship" of the blogger and her readers. Thanks for sharing your talent!


I am deeply appreciative of the time you've taken to leave a comment - thank you!
