This Give Away Is Closed

Welcome to White Wednesday hosted by Faded Charm and my Warm Winter Wishes Give Away Sign Up! I thought it would be fun to host a give away celebrating winters official arrival and offer another little sneak peek of my holiday decor which I will share with you on Friday.
Queen Winter has taken up residence in the corner of the studio presiding over all winter wishes... I have been keeping my eye on her...Wishing she would wave her magic wand...And grant my fondest wish, to Let It Snow...
Sending down a shower of magical snowflakes...
Indoors...Maybe, just maybe, she will swish another wish...For glistening glitter kissed snowballs... Or for ones that are pillow soft...Encrusted with ice crystals of pearls...Perhaps she will reach into her tiny tinsel filled tussie mussy...Scattering out a smattering of Christmas joy...
Perhaps she will white wash the world in winter soft lace...That rustles ever so softly as she glides...Across its downy dainty delicate cover...Etching her wonderful winter impressions over all surfaces...Creating a kingdom where the warmest of winter wishes come true...A little birdie told me it was time for a give away...And Queen Winter desires to make that wish come true...Where she wants to come and live with one of you!

Here she is in living color...You can see a few more details by clicking the photos in this previous post. She is a one of a kind design and stands about 12 inches tall. She can serve as a tree topper or stand alone on display.

Queen Winter will also be conjuring up a package of creamy dreamy goodies in winter white hues from my studio to share with another winner...

I will have a complete package photo for you in my next post. I am still gathering.

Queen Winter also wishes to shower some of you with tinsel snowflakes. She will be sprinkling out a scattering of these also. Please note that they may not be the exact ones in the photo below but I promise you they will be just as pretty!
To enter, simply leave your fondest wish in the comments section of this post between now and Monday, December 20, 2010. A winner will be announced on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 - the first official day of winter! Anyone is welcome to enter, my international friends are welcome, no restrictions, and you do not have to have a blog or be a follower.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Sandy,

She has definitely been sending some of her wintery weather to us here in the UK.
Thanks for all the inspiration,

Sandy, my fondest wish is for better family dynamics in 2011. This was a rough year in that regard, and I'm ready for better times. Keep on creating!

GerryART said...

Your imagination and creativity is so beyond anything I could ever hope to achieve.
Winter Queen is someone who demands all eyes to devour all her complexities.
She is truly one who'd be able to grant any wish mentioned in her presence. [right now, having a better 2011 for everyone is desirable].
Her gaze lets one know she is compassionate.
Happy Holiday Hugs,

Robin said...

Your Christmas creations are as beautiful as all your creations thoughout the year Sandy! Your giveaway is also so very generous. I can only hope that I might be so lucky as to win something lovingly created by you. Have a wonderful day.


Leanne said...

Nancy said...

Beautiful, sparkly, romantic, joyful....that's what your creations speak. Wishing for amazing creative inspiration to pour over us in this coming year. With that always comes a warm, happy feeling that everyone deserves to enjoy!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Dear Sandy,
I love your Winter Queen. She is beautiful as all your creations are. God really gave you a gift and I am so thankful that you are willing to share it my friend.
My fondest wish? That the new year is a blessed one for us all and they we become closer than ever to our Lord and Savior.

Karen Valentine said...

Oh my goodness!!! I know how wonderful it is to receive a package from you!!!!! Your winter queen is GORGEOUS!!! My Christmas wish is also that people would keep Christmas in their heart all year. The attitude of giving and sharing and being kind to your fellow man should not only be one month out of the year. That is one of the reason I love Blogland so much. People seem to keep that wonderful spirit within themselves all year long!!

Wanda said...

I LOVE your creation and your generosity with your giveaway!!!
My wish for Christmas is that my kids enjoy the holidays and understand the really meaning of Christmas. I wish you a lovely Christmas and thank you for such a lovely giveaway!!!
best regards,

Vickie said...

Beautiful Post, Miss Sandy! I shall not enter this time because I want to let some other lucky person win this lovely Winter Queen. But she is gorgeous and icy and I know she'll be a lovely adornment to some lucky lady's Christmastime!

LiLi M. said...

Hello Miss Sandy,

Just popping over to thank you for your get well wishes, they worked! My husband is recovering and I am on the mend too. We were that sick that I couldn't find the time to visit anyone, so that I couldn't wish you well too. Have you totally recovered, I hope so.
I love all your Christmas decorations, you are so creative. I feel a winner just looking at your wonderful decorations and being your blog friend. I feel a bit shy to wish for more.
So I wish for my youngest, who is really suffering puberty, that he will be happier next year, that he starts to understand himself and that he won't take notice of anything his classmates tell him.
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday too!

Debbie Douglas said...

Your winter decorations are very pretty. The queen would love t live with me
Happy Winter

Rochelle said...

Charlene said...

Sweet Sandy Queen Winter is amazing!!!!! I would LOVE to win her. To have a piece of your art like this would just tickle me over the moon. My fondest wish is for health... for myself, my family, my friends, for all. After breast cancer myself 5 years ago, open heart surgery for Hubby this summer... HEALTH is a precious gift. And you my sweet friend, are you feeling better? I wish you health most of all. HUGS!

she dreams big! said...

My fondest wish is that you get your fondest wish for snow. If it snows at your house, maybe it won't snow at mine! We've already had 2 Christmas events canceled because of bad weather so you can understand why I wish for no snow!

I've enjoyed your blog and your beautiful creations very quietly this year but have been a long-time follower! There is always peace and beauty here at Quill Cottage.

I'd love to win any of your creations!

Anonymous said...

Sandy, she's beautiful. And I'm a particular fan of your stars and snowflakes. :-)
Hugs, Diane

jennifer said...

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

She is truly the queen of the winter wonderland.

I decided not to decorate this year (I wrote about it today) but it has still been great fun to view all of your loveliness.

Blessings to you and yours.
Be merry and bright.Be merry and bright.

lala said...

Hello, I just found your blog and so glad I did - your creativity is astounding, and your work is truly beautiful. My fondest wish is for all to find happiness in the small moments which make up our daily lives.

Bonita said...

How did I miss this post? Sandy, I'd love to win anything you make! I think of you everyday when I see your beautiful star hanging on my Christmas tree. It's a favorite with me and apparently with my daughter too. This year she wanted to decorate the tree in "ice Christmas" which is all silvers and blues. Only two other ornaments are on the tree and yours is one she chose to include.

My Christmas wish is this: My son has to do a 240 hour volunteer internship this summer for one of the scholarships he received. I really, really, really want that to occur close to home so he can live here or at least be close enough to visit a few times a week. He's gone so much already with being away at college and it's been so wonderful having him home for Christmas. I don't want to have to give him up for 7 weeks out of the summer too.

Terry said...

I just viewed your blog on your Christmas Decor and fell in absolute love. I want to come over and see up close and personal each and every lovely vignette that you have created. My, you are talented. Warm wishes for this season of joy. Count me in on your drawing. Terry
