Happy New Year! and time to "Whirl into Winter"!!!

It's December 31st and time to usher in a new year! Here's wishing you warmth, friendship, shelter, food and all that will make you happy in the coming year!



*H A P P Y *N E W *Y E A R *! ! !


* * * * * * * * * *


It's also time to post the items that I have gathered for the ......
"Whirl into Winter Giveaway!!"

And here they are! There's a little something for everyone in this assortment. For those who enjoy scrapbooking there's a pad of pretty blue and white papers and some envelopes for creating custom cards. There's a little snowman photo/scrapbook to journal about favorite winter memories and some stickers to decorate the pages. There are some candles to light the night if a winter storm leaves you with a power outage (not fun) and if you live where there is no snow, well, I have provided you with a giant glittery snowflake to hang that will remind you of all of us who are knee deep or more in snow and ice this winter!!! There are little boxes filled with sweet treats and a tiny tin filled with some little surprises. And then there are three matching snowflake tins filled with more surprises!! The tins may match but each is a different size and each holds a different surprise. Are you wondering what might be in the tins? Here's a clue.......soft and nice to touch. No, it's not a rabbit in a tin but if you want to find out what is in the each one, check back on the days I'll be posting their contents and each one will be a "Snowflake Surprise"!!!! I'll reveal what is in the tins on separate days - Tin #1 will be revealed on Jan. 5th, Tin # 2 on Jan. 10th and Tin #3 on Jan. 15th. So, how can you win this batch of goodies? Well, here are my rules..............

1. Leave a comment on this post for one chance to enter. Your comment must include a link to your blog or an e-mail address. If you do not leave a contact link, your comment will not be entered in the drawing.

2. You may begin leaving comments at midnight tonight - in other words when Dec. 31 ends and Jan. 1 begins, you can leave me a comment. I will be taking comments through midnight Jan. 15th and will draw the name then and post it on Jan. 16th.

3. Your comment must include the answer to the following question - "Have you ever seen snow?" Then if you want to tell me more, I'd love to hear it but that's all it takes to get a chance to win the goodies you see in the picture.

4. If you check back on the 5th, the 10th and the 15th of January to see what is in each of the tins, you may leave a comment each of those days and so you can get your name in the drawing at least three more times!

All bloggers - U.S.A. and International - are welcome to leave comments. Hope that covers everything!! Oh, one more thing!!! I will be posting some free patterns, tips and things every other day or so between now and January 15th so stop back often and see what's new!!

Have a safe and *H A P P Y *N E W* Y E A R *! ! !

Sandi
******
P.S. We are staying in tonight, too cold to go anywhere
although my husband has gone to run errands and get
more cold meds for me. Bummer to have picked up this cold.
I have a winner, Mary ..............."The Needled Mom"!!!

Happy New Year Sandi. Hope you're soon feeling better. Lots of snow and COLD in S. Ontario. Ruth

simplestitches said...

Hi, and Happy New Year!

Love your giveaway, totally awesome.

Don't usually get snow here where I live, but occasionally we do.

I love it when we do, as the kids just go crazy...snowball fights, building tiny little snowman (as there usually isn't much to use), and getting freezing cold fingers and toes! Going home for piping hot coffee or chocolate for the kids.

cheers Julz

debbie said...

Hi Sandi, first time I found you blog. I live in Queensland, Australia and the last few days it has been extremely hot 40deg. I have seen snow in Victoria but they actually use a snow machine for the ski slopes, I was so excited to see it, it was -5deg and I thought that was cold. My husband is from Cornwall and can't understand why i get excited about seeing snow.Hapy New year.Deb.

Hello Sandi, Happy New Year to You.We live by the coast, it can be very bitter in Winter, as to Snow we have to travel some three to fours away.One Year we took our DD and because she is such a grand horserider she took to skiing like a duck to water.She was a natural.As to me I sat in the Chalet by the fire with a Hot Chocolate and read a book.DH and DD had a wonderful day.Regards Lyn

Great giveaway! I have seen snow, way more than I care too. I've lived in Ohio for 58 years .... sometimes it's fun to watch if fall and sometimes it's a pain if you need to out on the roads. I still love snow!

WhiteStone said...

Have I ever seen snow? You are serious, right? Snow!!!!! This part of the country INVENTED snow! It flurries, it blizzards, it blows! Already we've shoveled and shoveled and shoveled. And, oh, yes, I've built my snowman for the year. You can see her (the blonde snowperson) at my blog. Come on over!

Catherine said...

What a super giveaway.
Have we seen snow?? We live in southern Ontario, Canada and oh, do we ever see snow. We had a ton of it before Christmas. White Christmas is pretty -- but I wish it would leave on Boxing Day!

laurie in maine said...

What a lovely group of prizes.

Happy New Year!

Yes I've definitely seen snow...I grew up in Montreal Canada! Now being in the UK I'm lucky to see snow fall once a year. :o)

Walker Lady said...

I used to live in Minnesota and YES I have seen snow!!! I remember driving through canyons of snow where the snowblowers had carved a path through giant snowdrifts.

I also remember 36" of snow that fell on Halloween!

I moved to California ten years ago and didn't see 'real' snow until one March at a renaissance faire where they got over eight inches of snow! You'd have to have been there to imagine what a mess that was! lol

Marit said...

Thank you for sharing all these gifts in your give away. I live in Norway and have seen snow! I live in the southern part of Norway and we don't always have much snow. Some years there can be too much and others just for some days or so. Right now we have a light cover with snow so it is white.
Happy new year to you!

Julie said...

Fiesta said...

I have seen and lived in snow. I prefer my warm sunny florida sky.

Juli said...

It has been so long since I have actually seen snow "for real". I used to live in Illinois...20 years....but for the past 14, have been living in the "south"....Florida, Virginia, and now South Carolina...so, other than frozen water falling out of the sky, only to melt when it touches the ground, it's been a while.

miniaturequilter said...

Snow..we get more than enough of it! I saw it snowing last night!!
Happy New Year!

Robin said...

We moved to Florida in 1982 from Connecticut. We saw lots of snow then. We spent 2 winters in Upstate New York back in 2000-2001 and saw more snow than I ever want to see again. We were right outside of Fort Drum off Lake Ontario. Way too much lake effect snow for me!

Myra said...

Happy New Year! Yes, I have seen snow. We don't get as much as I would like here in NC but I do love to see a good snow in the winter.

Karen said...

Your "snowy giveaway" is great! I have seen snow many times in Oklahoma. Since we don't get it often, it's a thrill each time :)
I enjoy your blog so much! Karen

Tina said...

As a child I saw snow every year. Iloved it. Living here in Florida I hardly ever see it.
Happy New Year.

Great give-away thanks! I'm in Florida now but yes, I've seen snow. So deep one winter it covered our car. Hooray for Florida

Caeli said...

Have I seen snow? All I need to do is look out the window. We are lucky with only about an inch on the ground, but we do get lots in Ohio!

SRK Quilts said...

First time at your site and love it. Have I ever seen snow? Plenty over the years, since we lived in Colorado for so long. I love the glistening pure white of fresh fallen snow. Don't love shovelling, but love to watch it fall and run and jump in it. We've had so much fun sledding, tubing and skiing with our children in the snow, it brings back warm (no pun intended) memories for us all. Love the snow and now live in the desert where snowfall is a rare event, but when it does come, it's still just as beautiful.

Happy New Year and thank you for the contest!

Suzan said...

I have seen snow several times this year already but no BIG SNOW and that is what I am waiting for!!

Simone de Klerk said...

All the best wishes for you, Sandi! Yes, I have seen snow. Quite frequently, actually. Even at the end of 2008 (pictures on my blog). you have some gorgeous giveaways. Look forward to your free pattern, tips etc and what is hidden in the tins!
BTW, love your beagle. We have one too, almost nine and getting old. Somehow they can look so sad!

Carlotta said...

Happy New Year to you! I have seen lots of snow. I grew up in NY City, and can remember many snow days and snowball fights.

GoldenThreads said...

In 1989, my nearly 9yr old daughter prayed, & believed, she would see snow on her birthday. Talk about child like faith. We live in north Florida, where it is extremely rare to ever have any snow fall, let alone enough to cover the ground.

Sure enough, on her birthday, December 22, we awoke to falling snow, and a snow covered lawn. It wasn't long before we had little Floridian Snowmen.

As expected, the electricity was out for several days. We had neither a fire place, or a gas heater. We had 4 young children, including an infant that was 2 weeks old.

However, despite it all, I will never forget the precious memories of that year. With faith renewed, I remember sitting by the Christmas tree with our little family, and singing Christmas carols by candlelight as I played the autoharp.

Yes, we had snow. (=

karenc said...

Happy New Year, Sandi!!! I really like the snowmen at the top of your blog.

I used to live in snowy winter country, but I've been in Florida for many years. I was here and watched it snow in South Florida in 1977. Two years ago, I went to Europe. It was May, but there was snow on the mountains. I threw a snowball at my brother, for old times' sake!

craftydiane said...

Yes, I've seen snow. It has only snowed a few times here in Alabama in my life time, but I lived in Alaska for three months during January, February, and March one year and discovered that although the snow is beautiful I do not care to deal with it every day.
Have a Blessed New Year!

I love your giveaway prizes. I have seen snow many times. A lot more when I was a kid. I remember it usually started snowing around Thanksgiving and we had snow usually until the end of February into March sometimes. I loved it but then I was just a kid. The climate in IN sure has changed.

Happy New Year!
I grew up in Florida until I was 22 and then moved to Hawaii for a year. I then moved to San Diego for a year. After that my husband was transferred to Virginia. On our trip their we stopped at the Grand Canyon (in March) and there was snow everywhere! I was 24 years old. The next winter in Virginia I saw snow fall for the first time. It was beautiful. I miss the chance for it.

Happy New Year!

ponderpiggy said...

"Have you ever seen snow?"

While growing up in So Calif, we had a mountain cabin (complete with outhouse!)...and I loved to be there in the snow.

And, we'd get snow maybe once a year in the high desert. My folks just had 18 inches about 2 weeks ago!

We do get snow here in north central TX too...usually ice/sleet, but had about 12" or so last year.

HI Sandy! Happy New Year. This is a great give-away.

And yes, I've seen snow, I've cursed snow, I've eaten snow, and I've built snow forts. LOL.

But to watch the pure awe in someone's eyes when they see it and touch it for the first time makes me realize how wonderful it truly is.

I HAVE seen snow but it is rare here in Texas. Though, where I lived in college it did snow a lot. I like the snow and being able to wear warm coats and scarves and come inside from the cold. it's also nice to look out at the snow from a warm house and see it falling gently to the ground.

Happy New Year!

What a fun giveaway!

Wow Sandi! Aren't you just making friends fast! I've lived south Texas my entire life and have had the random snow storm, but never anything like they see in the north. It never stays on the ground very long.

I hope your holidays were great. I'll drop in again soon dear friend ...

VickiT said...

Oh my gosh have I ever seen snow? WAY too much this past December. This past December we had freezing rain, sleet, zero-visibility fog, torrential rain, flooding AND somewhere near 45inches of snow with -30 below zero wind chill temps. Oh and I forgot the 40mph winds causing blizzard conditions too. I THINK it's called winter but considering we've had the mess from all other seasons mixed into one, I had to keep checking my calendar. LOL Gosh, it was a fun month.

Anyone want some snow? Come on over and you can take it.

Hi Sandi! Happy New Year. Let's see. It was actually 6 years ago to the day, that I left So. Calif. (where I was born and raised) and moved to Maryland, leaving behind all those I loved to marry and be with hubby. Two months later, we were pounded with a big snowstorm and couldn't get out and about for 4 days. That was my very first encounter with snow. I loved it (until it became cold, dirty slush!) Haven't seen anything like it since. Maybe this year? Please enter me in your drawing! imallyv@aol.com

Elizabeth said...

Happy New Year! I have seen snow, although not tons of it. I've lived in the South my whole life, so most years there's not too much snow.

kathi said...

Have I seen snow???

Wow, we have lived in Oklahoma City, Dallas, Salt Lake City, and Kansas City among others. These, however, have all had snows while we were there.

We barely get a few flakes if we are lucky a year. But I remember as a small child my granny going outside and putting a metal bowl on the ground to catch snow and mking cream. This was in Piedmont, Alabama. A great place to grow up.

Thank you for entering me in your contest and here is my blog where there is a free give a way also.

bettsy said...

I was nearly 30 years old before I saw snow - and that was in Japan. A few years later I saw snow in Switzerland and finally saw Australian snow just after that. Since then I have been snowless, but right now in hot Queensland I think I could tolerate the snowy temperatures.

Karen S said...

Snow! We've seen too much this year here in Michigan! When I was in high school 20 years ago I had a friend named Merry. She was an exchange student from Australia. She would stay up all night just to see snow whenever the weatherman forcast flurries! By the end of winter, she too was sick of snow!

Raggy Rat said...

Tilde said...

Lovely give-away !
And yes, I have seen snow. Almost every winter of my life ... and these past couple of winters, somewhat more than I care for, seeing that I live in a city and have to clear the pavement around our corner house. BUT ... it looks lovely and is fun for kiddies to fool around in.

kat said...

There's no snow in my part of the world (philippines), but i went to switzerland last november, and i stayed in the alps. the snow was unbelievable...and of course i went ballistic *lol*

littlepeepsmom said...

Have I ever seen snow-- Every year of my life! This year in Northern NY we have about 2 1/2 feet in the yard right now. We get tons of snow from every weather systems that moves over the great lakes and deposits right into my neck of the woods.

It's a good thing I love snow.

Mary said...

Yes! I've seen PLENTY of snow! Grew up in Minnesota or should I say... Minn-e-snowta!! Now that I'm down in the deep south (Georgia) only see a few flakes now and then.

digifigi said...

Sandi, this is a great blog!!
Of course I've seen snow, having spent the last 9 years in Minnesota. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much in our part of New Jersey, but there's still hope.
I miss the snow, it does bring out the flake in me. I miss seeing hoar frost on naked trees, bringing shimmering white to the countryside.
sigh, digifigipam in NJ

Grew up with snow in NJ -- glistening in the sun, lovely!

BUMBLE BEANS said...

Have I seen Snow? Growing up in MN?
When I was a kid, I recall opening the front door and having to dig out way out... Snowmobiling, snowball fights, sledding.... yep. picking the frozen gobbs of snow frozen to your socks and gloves, hair etc...Ice skating on the lakes, and listening to the ice crack...
Yes sireee, seen snow. LOTS.

;-)

Christine said...

Growing up and now living in Chicago, we see lots of snow. We usually get one good snowstorm before the holidays.

Grateful Gramma said...

Yep. When I looked out the window this morning. :-)

Shelley said...

I have seen snow my entire life! In northern Maine, it's hard to get away from the stuff and winter lasts from Nov to April...way too long....Born raised and married here so no choice of locales. I would miss snow for Christmas if I lived someplace warmer, so would ideally like to live in the mts of Tenn/Virginia? to get the best of both worlds. Lovely gift choices!

Chris said...

Have I ever seen snow? 8 months out of the year!! We are in cold weather clothes more than summer.....

Danielle said...

Yes I've seen snow, On my way to work thing morning and many other days.

LesleyAnn said...

Well, I have seen my fair share of snow and cold here in Iowa!! I love the first snowfall every year, but then it gets old after much shoveling, snowy driving, etc. Happy New Year!!

Celeste said...

I have NEVER seen snow!! I have lived in Florida my whole life, so the only snow I've seen is on television!!

Moneik said...

I live in SD so we see snow on a regular basis. I love the light falling snow, but am not a fan of blizzards (unless I have no where to go and can stay in and sew!)

Janie said...

Love your Giveaway also. Yes we get our sure of snow here in Missouri. I DO NOT LIKE IT.

Janie

Lisa said...

I've seen snow twice in my lifetime
once in 1976 and 1989. It doesn't snow much in Central Florida..

Quilt Pixie said...

living on the cold canadian prairies I spend a good deal of my year with snow, and temperatures colder than a deep freeze... I love the stark white look!

Brooke said...

What a fun giveaway! Very clever!

Yes I have seen snow...we have to drive about 2 hours to get to it but it's worth every minute! The kids just love the snow we try to get to it about 2 times during the winter!

Thank you so much for the chance and can't wait to see what is in the other tins!

Have a lovely New Year!

Mary L. said...

Hi Sandi, what a fun idea!

We've had snow already here in S.E. Kansas. But we don't get much each year and that's just fine with me. I spent my first 40 years in Iowa and saw all the snow I need to see!

House of Mouse said...

Happy New Year....

I grew up in Colorado and now live in Oregon....this is the first year we have EVER had this much know here in Oregon. On Christmas Day, we have well over 3 feet in our yard. No power and was I grumpy!!! LOL

Baba said...

Growing up in Washington State and now living in Colorado I have seen more snow than I care to. I can't wait for summer to be back.

Helena said...

Yes, I have seen snow many times, but I live in the south of Sweden and here is only snow now and then.
Tonight it´s -10C but no snow, longing for it, lights up the world....

Lory said...

Would you believe me when I say I've never come into contact with snow??? It's true, I've always lived where it's hot, even though I love the cold. Does seeing snow count? I saw it one time through the window of a hotel where my family and I stayed at in Chicago. Except at first I thought it was rain, but it looked more dense. I was 9, I loved it!!!

Please sign me up for the giveaway, I love the items!!!

Hugs,

Is it an omen that my word verification for this comment was quiltyt?

QuiltBug said...

Yes! Even though I grew up in the Phoenix desert, I saw snow on several vacations (my grandparents lived in Vermont!) and I later moved to the mountains East of Albuquerque just before their worst winter in 30 years. It snowed 24 inches in one day and kept coming down! I loved every minute of it, because I'd never seen that much before. :-)

Thanks for hosting the giveaway. My blog is at http://stitchesandpieces.blogspot.com/

Carla said...

Living in Southern California for most of my life and now Alabama hasn't given me a lot of snow experience but we have had snow a few times.

Kari said...

HI. This is the first time I am doing this and it has been lots of fun. I live in Wisconsin and grew up in Michigan. I can almost say I have already seen enough snow for this season. I will admit though, I would miss it if I did not have it. A fresh snow on trees looks so beautiful.!!! Thank you!!!

Karimo1@yahoo.com

Briarose said...

Yes, I have seen snow...looking out my window now I see lots of snow! Enough already, I'm ready for spring! Claire

Katy said...

Wow! What a great giveaway!

I grew up where we got snow about once a year, sometimes more often, sometimes not at all. But I've seen snow many times, and we enjoy going to play in the snow in the mountains above us every year.

Megan said...

What an awesome giveaway!

Well I have seen snow many times, and lived in snowy Austria for awhile. But I love when the snow holds it's shape as it comes down, and you can actually see flakes. The first time this happened (for me) was in Illinois in 2002. Crazy!

katie z said...

I have seen snow... when I was little, we had a blizzard that piled snow to the roof of our garage. I'd love to win just for the tins, not even what's inside! This is lovely.

Carol E. said...

I live in MN, so YES I have seen lots of snow. However, I was born in Panama and was 2.5 yrs old when we came here. Mom says we were fascinated with the snow, but inside the house she couldn't get us to keep our shoes on. We kept saying "our feet can't breathe!"

Love your giveaway!

I live in Texas and yes, I've seen plenty of snow in my life. I've been living in this town my whole life and we get several snowstorms each winter. The year I was 4 yrs. old we had a 23" snowfall, and just about 8 or 9 years ago we were snowed in for several days with about 16" of snowfall.

Have I ever seen snow? OH YES! I live in Canada and have lived as far as the 58th parallel. COLD and SNOWY! I've also lived in Norway, which gets tons of snow in the winter. Even when I lived in the Canary Islands, there was snow on the mountains. So, YES, I've seen snow!!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

ytsmom said...

I have seen lots of snow here in Nebraska. I used to love snow days. Mom and I would have a running game of Monopoly that lasted all day long.
