Ribbons, Bows and a Giveaway!

What kind of ribbon or bow do you like? Simple and elegant? Natural with animal instincts? Rosy and romantic? Are you a little bit country? Or a little bit Rock 'n Roll? Are you, oh so Martha? Or a world traveler whose bow is a little smashed and coming undone (hmmmmm...let's not go there!) Are you traditional and go for the bells and berries? Or easily opt for the gift bag? Drawn by the sea? Or a little Frenchy? CSN has graciously offered another giveaway, so whatever kind of ribbon or bow you like, you can wrap it around this giveaway!! Whenever I go to their website, I am amazed at the choices. You can get anything from bar tables and stools and cookware to baby items. It makes holiday shopping easier, and especially with a $45 gift certificate in your pocket. In this season of giving, I thank CSN for giving me the opportunity to give to you.* So please leave a comment and I'll put you in once, and if you are a follower, mention it and your name goes in twice. And for fun let us know what kind of ribbon or bow sings to you. I will post the winner on Saturday, December 11th.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays to all. I have some fun things planned to share this month, so stay tuned.

*This giveaway is open to everyone in The US and Canada.

Not entering but just wanted to say I love all your packaging..Love the bell..and starfish the most I think~
It's a lovely touch to wrap a parcel well..You have to ahve the time and the patience..when I am doing the stockings..I wrap like a mechanical machine.. loose ends:( I am grateful to have so many to fill..but all the little things get tedious:) No ..not tedious..It's just me:)

Cute post Diane..

I love bows on packages but I have a hard time making them look beautiful. Many times though I will do it and just work on it. It really depends upon the recipient.

I never made it to Bows 101! I am rather basic...tie the bow as you would your shoestrings and hope it isn't lopsided! I have enjoyed following you on your travels near and far AND in the kitchen! Thank you.

I love bows and find myself unable to make them myself and have them resemble anything gift-worthy. I love the frenchy bow because it looks like one I could do - almost.

CSN is like quicksand. Once you fall in you can't get out without help!

I am a follower but I am a new follower so I don't know if that counts or not.

Love all the wrappings and bows and enjoy the blog tremendously. Very fond of purple and gold ribbons, maybe because I enjoy showing dogs!

Before I read through... I thought you were giving away French wrapping paper and ribbons... so lovely. WHo wouldn't want their packages to be dressed up so beautifully... I loved that first ribbon!

I love patterns in the paper and the ribbons--I like my Christmas tree to look slightly chaotic and interesting (kind of like my family)...

I like the world traveler one (not smashed, though). We use old maps and things to wrap gifts too!

Thanks for the chance!

Nancy said...

I adore bows....any kind, anywhere. On a package, little girls , shoes, shirts......etc. Your photos are beautiful. I'm a follower...faithful one. As for my favorite I'm drawn to Frenchy. Not surprised, are you? Good luck with your drawing.

Arien said...

I usually go for something simple, recycled or rustic--yarn or twine isn't fancy, but it can be charming.

Although I worked as a florist for years and can make a bow, in this season of too much to do and not enough time I am a BAG lady!

I am the worst kind of wrapper. I never use ribbons or bows! But, I love the "rock and roll" ones in your post.
