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!

    posting here, not to be entered into the contest, but to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

    my cancer keeps me from crafting the way I would like, but your posts inspire me as I lie in bed each day. I don’t often get to my computer to comment, so wanted to send holiday wishes while I could. :)

    thank you for sharing your talent with all of us! :) I do follow you here and on Pinterest.

    1. Martie Rollin

      jenscull…..I know exactly what you are going through…went through the same with cancer surgery 13 months ago. couldn’t do any crafting for months. The 2018 holidays came and went without my participation. this year, though a bit measured, I am so enjoying the holidays..but in a little different way. Apparently my “new normal” will be different than in the past. Would love to stay in touch with you: martie.rollin@gmail.com. We are still here! Life is different, but wonderful!

    I’ve been enjoying your beautiful projects for years through your blog, and love all the helpful tips and hints that you give your followers. The vintage look of most of your designs are timeless and so appealing, and just draw me in. I received a floral bookmark from you some years ago and use it every night in my book as I read before bedtime. Even your studio tour has been bookmarked by me as it’s full of ways to save on storage and repurpose items for your storage needs. With almost all the craft magazines gone in the US, it’s bloggers like you who keep me motivated and inspired. Thank you Kathy for being a bright spot in blogland ! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Already following by email and on Youtube.

  57. Jill C McAuley

    Thank YOU Kathy for your gift of inspiration and creativity. I am a subscriber on your YouTube channel as well as your blog. From there I have followed you through Graphic45, RRR, Funkie Junkie, and Button Farm. In fact, I recently received my Authentique calendar kit to begin a new year with your art enriching my home. Your gracious and welcoming style of teaching in your videos instills such confidence in my trying something new. Your recounting stories on your blog about your mother and growing up in VT are so vivid and lead me to search for inspiration through my life’s experiences. ( Most recently your describing the moon and sound of the snow under your feet as you walked up the hill to your childhood home was quite poetic!) Your humility in expressing your gratitude is perhaps your best lesson in how we all need to be aware of the wealth of blessings that surround us and from which we can draw strength and perserverence. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  58. sallie

    Thank u so much for thinking of us, although you give me gifts throughout the year with your inspiration and amazing creations. I am so happy I found you and I hope you know how much i adore everything you share with us. God bless you and I wish you the merriest Christmas ever!

  59. Charlene Brummitt

    That is great you have such a good following. I can understand why. I love getting your post each day and love your style.
