Love Languages and a GIVEAWAY!

Years ago when Brent and I were dating/engaged, as part of the process of planning our wedding, we had to meet with the pastor who was going to marry us. 

It was counseling and prewedding talks to get us ready to be man and wife.

We were supposed to read the book Love Languages, and each week when we met we talked about what we had read. 

Over the course of the book we discovered Brent's love language(s) were physical touch and words of affirmation.

Obviously.  Both are on his top ten list!

Mine were time and gift giving.

I actually LOVE to give gifts.  LOVE IT.  I cannot wait for my kids to open their gifts from me at Christmas and their birthdays.

I used to have an unspoken "contest" of homemade gifts with a set of friends we had early on in our marriage.  The wife and I were big Martha Stewart lovers and we tried making her crafts all the time, and then giving them to each other.  It was great fun. 

So, in the spirit of Christmas, I want to give someone a gift. 

One of you.

Here's what I plan on giving away.

Some are things I make and sell in my ETSY shop, and some are things from Target, my favorite store.

This Live canvas is one of my favorites.  I loved making it.

Everyone could use a little glitter at Christmas, and these magnets could be used to clip Christmas cards to your fridge, or hold all the important school papers.


Aqua and white bakers twine can be used for ANYTHING.  I use it to wrap gifts, and string up ornaments, etc. 


A mustache notebook and a glittery pouch and ornaments...who wouldn't want these?

And lastly, one of my homemade adjustable rings and some music garland.
