100 Follower Christmas in July Giveaway

I was thinking this past weekend about having another giveaway...and now with the record heat wave that is upon us...I definitely am trying to think COLD and BRRR...I know what you are all thinking...Please No Snow...LOL

So this is the deal. I want to at least think about Christmas and take my mind off this 93+ temperatures we are having here...its even hot by the river now...sweatin' just typing.

Since I am close to 100 followers, I am offering a 100 Follower Christmas in July Giveaway.

Featuring a Santa and a Homestead Pillow both made by me.
This prim santa is made from wool with a faux pine sprig.
The little pillow is made the old fashion way using cloth for stuffing.

How do you win these goodies you ask?

1. To be entered into the giveaway One Time, just make a comment on this post.

2. If you get creative and use these three words- Santa, July and Homestead in your comment, your name will be entered into the giveaway Three times, instead of once.

3. Finally, if you post this giveaway on your own blog,
your name will be entered into the giveaway Five times.
(Just let me know in your comment)

4. Once I reach 100 followers, one lucky name will be drawn.

Good Luck everyone, and I hope with this hot July, one of you will find yourself
 opening up a package delivered to your Homestead with this cool Santa and pillow in it!

Take care,


  1. Janice what a great idea Christmas in July with a Santa from your Homestead! He is adorable.
    The heat index today is suppose to be 110!!!1

  11. Hello Janice...Please neter me in this wonderful Christmas in July Giveaway. I would love to win your adorable little Santa and have it arrive at my homestead door !!! I will be posting on my sidebar too.

    Grace to you,

  12. Hi, Janice! Well, I have to tell you--if SANTA visited our HOMESTEAD this JULY, he would melt!
    I would love to be entered into your Christmas in JULY giveaway.
    Dear blog friend,
    I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
    This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
    Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
    If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
    I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
    Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.

  13. Janice - I don't understand how I missed this post and JULY is almost over! Your wonderful handmade SANTA would look right at home in my old HOMESTEAD! Pls enter me! I will also post on my sidebar. Thanks! ~*~Lisa
