The gathering you have picked out for your giveaway is spring-rific! hehe

My favorite thing about Spring is new life. New life all over the earth, and the reminder of Christ's resurrection.

Blessings, Jessica

Hi Amy, What a neat giveaway and you are so right that we never keep anything for ourselves! That's what's so nice about winning someones giveaway. I am a follower and my favorite thing about spring is opening up the screen door and letting in the great outdoors. The cats don't mind that either. ~Ann

Debbie said...

Congratulations Amy on 200 Followers! Its so nice meeting so many blogging friends. I would love to be entered into your giveaway. I have always loved Easter and the one that sticks out in my mind is the one we almost lost my Dad. He was coming home from work the Friday before Easter and his car was swept away by flood waters. He barely got out but I thank God everyday that he did. It was our own Easter miracle.

I have posted on my sidebar too!

*prim hugs*

I love the items you have chosen for this giveaway. I live in Canada and am a member of your blog. There are so many things to like about spring. It has so much going for it, being the first season after winter. Just being able to open the window with the warmer temps does it for me. I will also post this on my blog.

Hi, Amy!
It is right around the corner! I'm thinking spring for sure. Snowed today, rained today, freezes now. But my daffodils are poking up through the snow and if they have the strength to do that, I can hang on until it gets here. While the daffys bloom early, my favorite thing about spring is being able to open windows and smell my absolutely favorite flower, the lilac. We have several throughout the yard and last spring, we planted a hedge of 7 different varieties in our yard.
I would love to win your gathering. I love the beeswax bunnies so much! I am a follower and recurring commenter, as well as a US resident/citizen! I am posting on my sidebar, even if it does cut my chances.
Congratulations on having more than 200 followers!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Hi Amy, what an adorable giveaway, I would love to be entered! I am a follower of your blog and live in Canada. What do I love most about Spring? The smells, sights and sounds of rebirth and new growth after a long cold winter; song birds singing, grass growing and trees blooming, lambs and calves galloping in the fields; crocuses, daffodils and tulips pushing through the cool, damp earth towards the warming sun! Who couldn't love that? I've posted a link to your giveaway on my blog, right sidebar under Great Giveaways and congratulations on reaching 200 followers! Thanks for the opportunity, Deb

My favorite memory of spring is the smell of a fresh warm rain, washes everything clean making the new delicate flowers sparkle.

Congrats on 200 followers Amy! I'm lovin' this giveaway . . . count me in!

You gave me a good giggle this morning . . . it's so true about crafters not having alot of their own creations. People who come to my house often say, "where are those dolls I saw on-line?" and I tell them, "headed to their forever home".

Hillcresthome Prims said...

Hi Amy, what a wonderful Spring giveaway you are doing. I would love to enter!!!

What I love about Spring time is it not COLD and not to HOT, it is just right. I love to feel the sun on my face and go in my yard and start to clean up the sticks and twigs that have fallen from the harsh winter and start cleaning out my flower beds. I love to see my see of my flowers start to come up(Spring flowers that is)!
I also love the fresh smell in the air after a Spring rain and sometimes we are lucky to see a rainbow!!!

That is what I love about Spring!
Thanks for hosting this great Spring time giveaway!

Prim Blessings,

Hi Amy,
I am a follower of your blog and I love all of your wonderful posts and creative ideas you share with all! I would love to be entered into your "Spring Giveaway!" I have posted your giveaway to my blog sidebar! What I think I love most about Spring is that it seems to give everyone around us a better outlook on life and their everyday comings and goings! I see this in people when the sun starts to shine more often, it starts to get warmer, and daylight is longer and longer! The world around us just seems to be filled with happier souls when Spring finally arrives!

What I like about Spring (besides the usual flowers blooming & fresh air) is not having all the winter coats, hats, gloves & boots all over in the entry. But then it won't be long after that I have to be picking up swimsuits & beach towels. LOL

Miccosukee said...

I love discovering new blogs and how lucky to find yours just as you are having a giveaway. Doubt I will win but I'll give it a shot. Living in north Florida, I love to see the Japanese magnolias appear as that is a harbinger of the end of winter. Of course, along with the beauty come the dreaded oak pollen with the sneezing and watery eyes.

Looking forward to learning more,
