Celebrating Love GIVEAWAY!!



Whilst I am still on a blogging break, I thought I would take a moment to share some happiness with you!

~

I have a special giveaway planned for you today, my dearest friends!

I love showing you all how much you mean to me and I greatly appreciate your rich fellowship and sweet encouragement, so I am offering a lovely little something for your homes…


As this month is February…the month of love, I have asked my dear, creative sister to make something very fitting and truly ‘’love-ly” as a gift for one sweet reader!






 Nancy creates beautiful pictures with fabrics and her sewing machine, and she is working on a range of lovely cushions and wall hangings which she is hoping to market at our stall each Saturday…I absolutely adore her work (and not simply because she is my sister...), and she is making me one or two sweet wall hangings for my sewing room which is in progress at the moment in my mind…{{smiles}}


She very kindly agreed to make a pretty wall hanging for one lovely reader…  It says, “Love’’, which I thought was very appropriate for February (and all year round!) when our focus should be on loving one another as Christ first loved us…don’t you think having this pretty wall hanging in your home would be a wonderful reminder to love others…?

Now, to stand a chance to win this picture, simply do the following…

Leave a comment telling me how you enjoy showing those your care about how much you love them…


If you would like to gain extra entries…


Tell someone else about this giveaway in any form you choose.  But please be sure to leave another comment telling me that you did so…


There is also an extra entry for followers, so please include your following name in your comment.


Favourite heartmade shoppe on Etsy {here} or follow heartmade’s blog {here}…again, please let me know that you did so in order that I may give you more entries!

~

As usual, this giveaway is open to all countries, and will close in ten days’ time which will take us to Wednesday the 10th.  I will announce the sweet winner on the 11th…


Oh, and if you are a first time visitor, you are more than welcome to enter…the more the merrier!   
It always makes my day to ‘’meet’’ a sweet new friend, so let the commenting delights begin!
~ A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  John 13:34 ~

Probably I'm really the first, my dearest Kelly-Anne, and you cannot imagine how happy I'd be to receive this work of art of yours !
Having a family, it's so long the list of how I show my beloved ones how much I do love them ... sometimes making a pie they like, sometimes making them a present when there's no anniversary, just because it made me think of them ... and of corse, keeping my home always in order and so very clean, that'a another gesture of love, I think, but it's so obvious that I was forgetting it !
Oh, as you know my following name is Daniela and ... I didn't know you had another Blog, I'm following you there too and I'm going to order something on your Etsy shop, I've seen something I cannot resist !

May your week be blessed with joy, sweetie
thank you so much for this so lovely chance,
sending much dear love to you
Dany

Hi, The LOVE wall hanging made by Nancy is so sweet! A perfect giveaway for the month of February! Family and friends may be separated by many miles, but the LOVE is always there and these days, it is easier than ever to stay in touch with those we love and appreciate. God bless your week! xo

Alex said...

Hi Kelly-Anne, I hope you will include me the giveaway as a follower of your blogs (love those pink coasters) and Etsy shop!

How do I share love? Well as a Mum, wife and daughter there are plenty of opportunities to make my family warm, cosy, happy and I do enjoy that.
Smiles and hugs are the currency of love at home!
...my rule of thumb is to try to imagine being in the other person's shoes...you might show love by doing something needed even though you are BOTH tired out, or showing real enthusiasm for a new project of theirs, or research something that you know is on their mind...all sorts really.
My favourite little way is to leave little notes around the house...sometimes these are very silly and cause a giggle or two, my grown up kids probably think I am a head case!! But they always keep the notes, I've noticed ;)
Friends say I am a good listener which is another way of loving and needs patience!
Nancy did a fine job with the beautiful banner ~ thanks to her and to you for hostessing the Giveaway. Blessings! Many hugs! xx

Hello Kelley-Anne, hope you're enjoying your blogging break! Your give-away is so pretty and would look great hanging in anyone's home. Love is such a powerful emotion and God has given us so many people and 'things' to love! I visited your etsy shop and had such a good time looking at all your pretty crafts, very nice. I also visited the blog, it was great too!

Ashley said...

What a delightful giveaway Kelly. I show my family members I care by doing lots of things... giving them a surprise present, fixing their bed, etc..

Elizabeth said...

Kelly-Anne, My, how pretty is this wall hanging! You must tell Nancy what a beautiful job she did :) I would be just delighted to be entered into this LOVEly giveaway!!

I have to say my most favorite way to show love to others is to cook for them. I absolutely love cooking or baking something for someone knowing it's their favorite! As I've heard before...cooking is love made visible, and I so believe that to be true :)

I shared about this giveaway on my personal FB page :)

I also "favorited" your Etsy shop :) As it truly is one of my favorites!!

Thank you again for hosting such a sweet giveaway! And a round of applause to dear Nancy for her talented work!

Thinking of you, and sending much love always,

I am a friend of Mildred and am just checking in to say hi. My great grandmother was a quilter, my grandmother was a quilter and my mom was a quilter. Being a guy I won't probably quilt ever. The quilt your sharing is a beautiful little piece and the colors are really wonderful. Quilts are artworks and works of love. My mom would be pleased to know we are using one of her quilts right now on our bed and it is keeping us so very warm.

Stephanie said...

Dearest Kelly-Anne, you are such a bright light in this blogging world. You are an absolute sweetie to have a little giveaway while on your break, and your dear sister Nancy is simply precious to offer on of her handmade creations. My oh my, the banner is stunning and I would count it a privilege to have it hanging in my craft room.

I so enjoy spreading love to others by giving...whether it be by giving handmade gifts, baked goods, or by simply giving my heart and love to whatever their need may be.

Thank you for this opportunity. And thank you for the multiple messages in my inbox. I had a lovely time reading them while sipping on coffee this afternoon.

Much, much love to you!

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Hope you're enjoying your blogging break! Hugs,
Cecilia

Cheryl said...

Oh, dear Kelly-Anne! What a dear, precious giveaway you have here! I am so grateful for you, sweet friend. I didn't now you had the other blog, so now I am a follower there, too! :) The way I love to show others how much I love them is by praying for them, cooking, baking, and trying to do little things that I know they like and that will make them smile. ;) Thank you for the opportunity to win! I was so happy to hear from you today and will try to respond to your email soon. Sending you much love and many hugs!

Oh Kelly-Anne, what a darling LOVE banner that your sweet sister made for your giveaway! You have such a talented family of sweet sisters for sure! I am already a follower of your blog and thank you for the opportunity to win. May you have a lovely blogging break, sweet friend.

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

I forgot to mention how I show love to my family, and that is by cooking, baking and being with them and caring for my grandchildren. xo

Nikki said...

I would LOVE to win this beautiful wall hanging made by your sister. I think as a wife and mama I show love to my family by taking care of them each day, filling bellies, giving out hugs and kisses and reading to little people, Teaching little ones about Jesus. It is such a pleasure and a gift to be a wife and mama. I don't want to miss even one chance of showing them how much I LOVE them. We have these little ones for such a short span of time.

Nikki said...

I am now following your blog as well.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Oh my goodness dear Kelly-Anne, what a LOVEly giveaway! Such a precious wall adornment, oh what a special gift to share with us! Both you and your sister are VERY talented with the sewing machine, and what a precious heart you have to give this away! Having just dusted off my sewing machine recently, I know how much work goes into such a project, and it would be treated with great love, care and respect in my small creative space indeed!

I follow you through feedly, which is a blogging service that allows you to read all the blogs you follow. I enjoy each and every post that you share, what a joy it is to always see what you are doing! Hoping that your weather has cooled off some, and that your garden has produced bounty fit for a king :) Much love to you today, dear Kelly-Anne, and give my LOVE to your sister Nancy too! :)

Oh... I did almost forget to answer your question... I hope that I show love in all I do, wherever I go, whoever I am with... I pray that the Love of Christ would flow out of me in all that I do. That is my greatest desire :)

Hamlette said...

Well, I like to show people I love them by making something for them. Food, clothing, a fun craft, whatever -- making something myself especially for someone I love is one of my greatest joys.

I follow your blog as Hamlette :-)

And I've favorited Heartmade on Etsy -- I'm Huggermugger over there (or it might show my real name, which you know).

This is such a sweet giveaway! I would love to hang this in our foyer instead of the seasonal wreath we usually have there.

Shoregirl said...

What a lovey gift for your giveaway! I enjoy gift giving as a means of showing others how much I love them, something I inherited from my mom. I follow this blog, your heart made blog, and your Etsy shop.

Bethany Carson said...

Thanks for hosting such a lovely giveaway, Kelly-Anne! Nancy does beautiful work! I've shared on Google+, and I follow you on Google Friend Connect as Bethany Carson.

I like to send greeting cards to those I care about! It's a lot of fun--as I love card shopping!

Karen said...

Your sister's creation is really lovely! How sweet of you both. I enjoy spending time talking to my sister on the phone and listening to my granddaughter read. (She is 6 years old now, and losing her front teeth!)

Rosemary and Thyme said...

This is so sweet and beautiful. Your sister is also very talented too. I love to celebrate family each and everyday. The things we do for the ones we love are celebrated in the normal things we do with them daily. A sweet smile, hug and a listening ear means more than any gift February can bring although some good quality chocolates and a tasty home made dinner can make one feel extra special.

Hugs,

Janet
