Holiday Giveaway!

What's Jack up to? As I write this Jack is hanging in his spot under the bed with the latest toy that he's chewed to bits. Lately I've been finding stuffing in the oddest places. Oh well, that's my Jack.

The holidays are here, really they are! And really I am still so not prepared. This is seriously turning into a thing with me this year. Way to cut it close, Kwana. Sigh.

Ah well, I'm not going to let my lack of planning or get up and go ruin holiday cheer on this here blog so I'm having a Holiday Giveaway. Yay!!!

This giveaway is featuring a beautiful notebook/sketchbook from one of my favorite artists, my good friend, Patricia of PVE Design.

notebook titled: Life's a Beach

Many of you are fans of Patricia's work from her blog or you may have been lucky enough to have commissioned a work of your very own. I'm lucky to have had her design my above banner which I always get compliments on.

Well Patricia has opened up her own Etsy store where you can get some of her works at really great prices. Perfect timing for for the holidays. Please go and check it out here.

Now for the contest. Help me get a little more in the holiday spirit, gather new readers and fill my iPod while I'm at it.

1. You must be a follower to enter.
2. If you tweet or link to the contest you can submit another entry.
3. With your entry please leave me the title and artist of your favorite holiday song to add to my holiday playlist.
The contest is open until Sunday 12/13 at Midnight.

Easy Peasy!

What a nice way to wake up. Hands down my favorite holiday tune would be Johnny Mathis singing The Christmas Song {chestnuts roasting on an open fire}. That man can sing a Christmas song that will always give me goose-flesh


Lovely gift set Kwana...someone will be merry for sure!

Purple Flowers said...

Two favorites - Oh Holy Night and Silver and Gold (can't decide which is THE favorite). Your giveaway is very generous!

I love Handel's Messiah and of course what would Christmas be without Charlie Brown?
Thanks for having lil ole me for a give-away!

PVE does beautiful work and is a nice person too. I wish her much success. I am a follower of both Kwana and PVE so hope I qualify. I don't know how to tweet the info but here is my favorite Christmas music:

I love the Charlie Brown Christmas CD so sweet and simple. xoxo

Karena said...

Oh, I would say Ave Maria by Schubert. It is so timeless and stirs your emotions every time! Kwana, Thank you so much for the giveaway from one of my very favorite illustrators!

Deidra said...

Oooo! A PVE giveaway! Count me in! My favorite holiday song is Santa Baby, sung by the amazing Eartha Kitt.

Simply Mel said...

There's no denying how much I adore PVE's work! Great giveaway!

So...this may sound a bit cheesy, but one holiday song that kick-starts the season for me is "Hard Candy Christmas" by Dolly Parton! I know, I know - but hey, I'm still a Southern Belle at heart!

Leanna Renee Hieber said...


My favourite Christmas Carols are
"Lo how a rose ere blooming"
and "In the Bleak Midwinter"

but my song to add to your playlist is a must, it's by my favourite hometown band, Over The Rhine and called "Darlin' Christmas is Coming" - available on iTunes, check them out, both their holiday albums "Snow Angels" and "Darkest Night of the Year" are must haves!

What a beautiful sketch notebook! I'm off to check out her etsy store after this.

My all time two favorites are "O Come All Ye Faithful" by Luther Vandross

and Do You Hear What I Hear by Whitney Houson.

labeaux said...

My favs are; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, & O' Come All ye Faithfull, both sung by Luther Vandross.

Megan Frampton said...

I've got two: This Christmas by Donnie Hathaway and No Room At The Hotel by Chosen Gospel Singers (featuring a young Lou Rawls!)

Renee Kohl said...

I love that PVE Design notebook! And it's not x-mas until I hear this song: All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey

Joyce said...

Kwana what a wonderful gift to giveaway! I have been blessed to have some of Patricia's art so I'm just stopping by to say Hi. I'm off to visit her shop. The other day her cupboards were bare now I feel like a kid in the candy store. Smile... Hugs to you and Jack. xo

Adrienne S. said...

"All I Want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey is a must. I even love the version from "Love Actually".

Another is must is Wham!'s "Last Christmas". George Michael... Enough said. Taylor Swift's cover is pretty good too.

Ellen Gerstein said...

"Sleigh Ride". Reminds me of watching WPIX or some other channel that used to run it during their holiday promos. Still reminds me of Christmas in the city, which is SO opposite what the song is about!

Michele P. said...

I like Latin music so Navidad Sin Ti (christmas without you) by Los Bukis is what I would suggest...sad but a good song!

I'm tempted to say that it is Grandma Got Run over By a Raindeer, but it's actually Sting singing The Angel Gabriel from the very first A Special Christmas CD.

Ann Marie said...

I am submitting "Christmas Wrappings"
by the Waitresses.
It is a Rock and Roll classic with a happy ending
