Choose your own prize! October secret santa giveaway



***GIVEAWAY CLOSED NOV 2010***

We love Secret Santa packages around here – good things come in small packages, and even more delightful things come in ones that package together lots of handmade goodies!


This month we’re offering a massive giveaway of ‘On Top of a Lily Pad’ (OTLP) products. It’s our biggest giveaway yet! More than $NZ70.00 worth of Christmas handmade goodies of your choice of colour, size, and appliqué, choosing from:
Imagine your children’s delight this Christmas when you go all out to bring back traditional Christmas cheer – in a stylish, modern way, using 100% cotton designer fabrics in the latest home decor trends. Will you go with all red polka dots, in an Amy Butler tribute? Or will you use a vintage style pattern....or a vibrant green as your theme?


We also want to encourage you to teach your children about the gift of giving at Christmas – by getting them involved in writing Christmas Cards. As well as drawing a winner of our $70.00 prize pack, we will draw a ‘runners-up’ prize – this lucky person will win a set of six Christmas cards designed by the lovely Sarah at Songbird Designs. Ultra modern and stylish, these quality cards are among some of the range pictured on my Christmas Card Keepers and are eye-catching and stylish! The timing to win these gives you plenty of time to make the international postage cut-off date for this year of November 29th (Australia) and November 22 (rest of world).







(As an additional offer, I’ll send out a handmade Christmas Card to the children of every person who buys a Christmas Card Keeper between now and Christmas – ‘from Secret Santa’ – to get your board started looking full and busy.)

Our giveaway competition is open from now until the end of October, 2010, and closes at 5pm Monday Nov 1, 2010. The winners (both the main prize and Songbird Designs’ card pack winner ) will be drawn by random.org .

Please note: due to the weight of the pinboard, and size, this competition is only open to NZ and Australian readers. Sorry!

  1. The best thing about xmas is watching the delight on my childs face when they see all the presents under the xmas tree on xmas morning, and the excitement of finding out what is inside them.

  4. I have signed up to your blog mailing list. where to start on good things about Christmas... this year is going to be the first year that my daughter will understand what is happening, so that's going to be pretty exciting! I love seeing her face when she realises that a pressie is for her. A new bubs due any time before or on Christmas makes this year extra exciting too!

  9. My favourite thing about Christmas is thinking up, and then organising (including sometimes making) what my family wears for Christmas day. I've done this ever since we had our second child, so that's been almost 21 years now (pheww!) and as the kids have got older it has sure got a bit trickier making them .... or should I say encouraging them .... to ummm comply!!!!! I try to come up with a theme, either a colourway or an idea - like the year my daughter was in Canada so we all dressed in Canadian colours with a maple leaf somewhere on us (we live in NZ). Or last year we dressed in denims with white singlets that I had appliqued letters on - on the front we spelled out "MERRY" and on the back "XMAS".

    My favourite thing about christmas used to be all the yummy food you got to eat that you never got at any other time of the year. Now that I have a child the best part is wrapping his presents for his santa sack.
