Merry Christmas Giveaway Winner Announcement

Hello, Friends!  Well, the big day is finally here!  Time for my Merry Christmas Giveaway Winner Announcement!  I received an overwhelming response from all of you on all my social media platforms.  Reading your many kind comments touched my heart and made me get misty eyed more than once.  Y’all are the best, and I wish I could send each and every person who commented, subscribed, liked, and shared a prize.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Here’s how I picked the winner.  I began by putting a slip of paper for  my Blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube in a bag.  Then I reached in and grabbed one of the folded paper strips.  It was for my YouTube Channel.

Next, I went to my YouTube Channel and counted the comments, eliminating any of my replies or duplicate comments.  Then I entered the number of comments in a random number selector and it selected:


Congratulations, Sherry!  You are the winner of my Merry Christmas Giveaway!  Please contact me via e-mail with your mailing address and I’ll get your prize pack out to you!

Thanks to all who joined in on this giveaway!  I’ll do another one when my YouTube channel tops the 9,000 subscriber mark.  So stay tuned!

I’m going to take a few days off for the Christmas festivities with my family.  But I’ll be back on Friday for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop.  You’ll have a chance to win a $25 gift card to Heartfelt Creations then.

May you all enjoy the beauty, the wonder, and the awe of this blessed season.  May your Christmas be truly joyful!

Many blessings!

Kathy by Design Merry Christmas Giveaway

Hello, Friends!  Today is a fun day at Kathy by Design because I have a little Merry Christmas Giveaway to share with you.  2019 has been a watershed year, and my heart is so full of joy and gratitude that I just had to spread the happy around!   And who better to share it with than all of you: my faithful companions on this crazy-wonderful creative journey?

Merry Christmas Giveaway Video

I created a lovely little crafty kit with some of my favorite Authentique papers, Spellbinder’s Dies, Mixed Media goodies, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Buttons, Flowers and even a “ready to go” box style folio for you to have fun making.  Watch this short YouTube Video to find out what is in the kit.

Merry Christmas Giveaway: How to Enter

If you’d like to be entered in the drawing for this video, here’s how:

  • Subscribe to my blog
  • Subscribe to my YouTube Channel

That’s it!  Let me know in the comment section of this post that you are/have subscribed to both my blog and my YouTube channel.  If you follow me on other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, let me know and I’ll give you an extra entry for each one.

I’ll randomly select a winner at 8AM EST on Monday, December 23rd.  Be sure to check back for that announcement as I will need to get your address so I can mail out your crafty goodies.

From My Heart to Yours

When I started this blog in 2013, I had no idea the adventures that lay ahead.  It kind of takes my breath away when I look back at how amazing it’s all been.

I’ve had the honor to design for some of the best companies in the business: Authentique Paper, Graphic 45, Heartfelt Creations, The Button Farm Club and Really Reasonable Ribbon, Little Birdie Crafts, Petaloo Flowers…just to mention a few.  I am so grateful for the opportunities that have come my way…and all because I like to play with pretty paper!

Then, there’s each of you.  Wow, my heart is just so full.  I’ve had the chance to get to know many of you on a more personal level and some of you have become dear friends.  All because of paper.  It’s really amazing.

So, thank you.  From the bottom of my heart for taking the journey with me, for encouraging me with your sweet comments, for your patronage in my Etsy shop, for all of it.  My life is full to overflowing with joy and gratitude.

I wish each one of you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and Happy New Year.  May the joy of creativity be your portion, and may you always find the courage to follow your dreams.  I’m so glad I did!

Thanks for stopping by!
