It's time for a Giveaway!!!!

{This giveaway is now announced on Friday, Nov. 25}
Thanks for entering....

I'm SOO excited!

SOOO much to all of you for your support and encouragement, especially these past few months.

It means more than words can express. 

YA'LL ROCK!!!!!!

I just shake my head in disbelief when I consider how quickly my Facebook fan numbers have risen in the past few months. 

I'm closing in on 1000 fans and could use your help here!

For weeks, I've considered getting this giveaway going now before the holidays HIT us strong...and have been planning to entice bribe ask you to help me  get over that #1000 hump, but I'm much closer than I would have dreamed already.


In reality, I only have about 10 more 'likes' to get there.


No matter what....

I am excited to offer TWO gift packages....

The first pkg. is this wonderful Christmas Cookies cookbook,
along with an adorable plate for YOU to give away, AND...
a cutsie spatula/turner made by Avon just for the holidays.
I'm wishing I had gotten one for myself too!

(Does seeing all that peppermint make you want to break out in singing "Deck the Halls"?)  *-*

The plate is 13" can put plenty of cookies on there to give away. 

The cookbook has ideas like...
~Baking Cookies with Kids
~Sharing with Friends
~Making Memories
~Cookie Storage Hints

along with many shaped, dropped, and bar cookie recipes.

I made some of the Peppermint Candy Shortbread cookies and they were super!

The second gift package is this cute "Cookie Dough FUN" cookbook, along with a set of 4" X 6" Christmas recipe cards.

These are some of the titles in this little booklet...

~Crazy for Cookie Dough
~Simple Pleasures
~Kids in the Kitchen
~Holiday Treats
~Party Fun
