Faith, Hope, and Love Giveaway!!! Ginghers~~Jennifer series

It's that time of year again to give a gift to someone special at Christmas time. I wish I could give each and every one of readers here a pair but one pair is what I can give this year.
 
With this giveaway, you will be the first to have my Downton Abbey design with instructions pack.
Of course the scissors are  4 inch Jennifer series by Ginghers!!!! Here is a pic below:

 
Brand new, 4 inch with leather sheath



 
 
 
 
 
I found this while digging out the tons of decorations this year. I guess I was going to put a small motif in it for someone and didn't get the time.
Well, the time has come to find one.
Thinking of seriously putting a beautiful cross in it.
 
 
My other half and Miss Abbie who loves her some Mr. Darcy too, is sporting her Christmas dress from last year.
She loves to sit on his shoulder like a bird. :0
 
 
Speaking of Abigail Fox
 
 


 
 
 
yup, I'm determined to teach myself to either crochet or knit, OR BOTH!!! in this year 2013.
I took a knitting class a few years ago but gave up when I got home and couldn't figure out my mistake. HOWEVER, there's always second chances if we put our heart into it, whatever it is........
I do think I'm going to use a more contrasting yarn color for my beginner piece. I had picked this color up for a friend who is going to be a grandma to twins! I wanted to make the babies a blanket as they just found out both are boys! And they have 2 brothers at home waiting on them.
But I have some nice deep cranberry and dark teal that I can use for maybe a simple scarf to practice on first.
 
Someone from the big Christmas party, Mr. Darcy and I attended put this on my desk. They had taken a pic of us when we visited Santa. I will let the scene speak for itself. LOL
 
 
Mr. Darcy and Santa, NOT looking at the cameras!  :0  We had the best time dancing and dancing. He is a great dancer and such a gentleman. The party was catered and the food was awesome!!!!  We even won a Visa card with an amount on it and it was much needed right now. God is Good!

So 12 more days till Christmas.

You know the rules for the giveaway......

1) only post on THIS POST your comment or comments as a follower for one chance THEN
2) post a second time if you shared it on your blog
3) if your name is Jennifer too, then you get an automatic 3rd chance
4) for 4 chances post again, with your favorite character in Downton Abbey!

Jennifer

  8. I guess I'll start this off! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! I don't own a pair of Ginghers, but they look beautiful!
