Flag Day Giveaway



Welcome to the 2011 Flag Day Giveaway! June 14 ~ June 17. Why a giveaway on Flag Day? Well as Holly (the wonderful organizer of this event) stated, it is a great day for Americans to reflect on the blessings we have as a nation.

When Holly first asked me about hosting a giveaway, I wasn't sure that I really wanted, or had time, to do it. Then I read her comment and realized that I have been pretty fortunate the last couple of years with a steady income, healthy family and friends, and the freedom and opportunity to run my crafting business. So why couldn't I share a few of the things I have sitting around my craft room and possibly pass some small joy on to someone else?

You can view the Master List of Flag Day Giveaways here. In case the hyperlink does not work, copy and paste the url below into your browser to get to the Master List site.

So, without further ado...here is what I am giving away:

Handmade items:

Notepad Holder and matching Binder Clips
Notepad Tin
Boxed set of 5 All Occasion Cards (Blank Inside)
3 Holiday Gift Card Holders.

Inside Tin

Product (All items from Stampin' Up!):

One Box of Heart Treat Cups (dozen)
One Package Jewel Basics Rhinestones
One Package 1/2" Library Clips (Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, White)
One Roll Crumb Cake Seam Binding
Afterthoughts Clear Mount Stamp Set


And here is the entire Flag Day Giveaway Package from Artful Imagination.

So how do you win this lovely package you ask? Well, simply leave a comment on this post between 8 am (CST) June 14, 2011 and Midnight (CST) June 17, 2011 letting me know what blessings you have had over the past year.

The winning poster will be chosen using random.org, but the post MUST contain a comment sharing your blessing. Big or small it does not matter, just share! The post must also contain a way to contact you. If you are the winner, I want to be able to let you know. :) If either of these items are missing from the selected post, a new post will be chosen as the winner.

awesome prize package! I love your handmade projects. I am blessed to have had a very successful back surgery this year that relieved me of a great deal of pain.

Hi Kym,
Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful prizes here! I'm blessed to have been able to stop working outside our home and be a stay-at-home mom. It has been wonderful for my family and something I try to not take for granted.

Brittani Nguyen said...

Hi Kym, what a wonderful lot of goodies! Thanks for the chance to win! This past year I have been so blessed. I have been able to start working less and focus more on my schooling. I have been able to spend more time doing what I love-- crafting. And most importantly, I am blessed in having a healthy, happy, loving and supportive family!!


Awesome handmade items! Thanks again!

I have had many blessings this year..my husband is safe at home this year from deployments, both my children are healthy and moving on with their own lives, and I have a family that I love very much and I'm going on 7 mths no smoking...so I'm very thankful for the many blessings I've been given this year.

I have a Mom-in-law who I care for, live with, and just love. She's 90 years old and full of spunk, love and kindness. In January she had her one knee replaced, and all the physical therapy involved. And Mom taught me how to endure adversity with a smile. The doctors thought she was "too old" but when they met Mom, saw her determination, and how healthy she is, they agreed to surgery. Mom is walking so much better, and I feel she is the best blessing I could have!

Sherri said...

With all the blessings that we recieve each day how can you select just one. Just waking up and breathing with no problems is a blessing. Looking at what others don't have compared to most of us makes me realize all I own is a blessing.

Your stuff is cute too by the way!!!

Theresa said...

Thank you for offering such awesome blog candy.
I feel truly blessed this year because my DD is expecting a baby the beginning of August. This is after several miscarriages and a tubal pregnacy.

Every night I pray and thank God for my family, their health and happiness; my home and all the utilities (ha); our vehicles (that continue to run and get us where we need to go); our finances (which never seem to be enough but God has always provided us with what we need). Times are hard. I feel like I need to give Him credit where it is due!

Thanks for your generosity! I hope your winner will use it well.

God Bless,

Becky Dunham said...

Wow Kym this is quite the goodie load :) I continue to be blessed with a loving husband and a solid job. My kids are also a blessing. This may not sound like a blessing, but my grandmother passed away and as she was a living shell and no longer recognizeable as my grandmother and she was ready to go, it was a blessing for her and for us. Thanks for the chance to win these goodies and for joining in on this fabulous Flag Day celebration!

Joan Brenizer said...

What a great package. I'm thankful for my family, my new home, the ability to stay home with my daughter, and my loving husband.

grandmalee said...

One of the biggest blessings I have had over the past year is the birth of my youngest grandson. My daughter & her hubby have been trying for over 6 yrs. to conceive, and then after getting pregnant she had to have her cervix stitched together at 19 weeks, and was in the hospital for 5 weeks. After her release, she was still on complete bedrest until the delivery. She lost her job because of being off so long, but we have the cutest boy ever, and hopefully Caleb can live up to his name!

This daughter also just returned from Haiti after several weeks with the Colorado Army National Guard. God Bless our Military!

Carol L said...

I love flag day and all of the celebration of our flag. I feel extremely blessed just to live in the USA! Thanks for your generosity on this special day!

Love the idea for the Flag Day giveaway. Although I lost my mother this year to Pancreatic cancer, I am blessed that I have my two wonderful daughters and husband.

thewronas said...

I have many blessings... the one I'm thinking about most today is my grandmother. Tomorrow my grandmother turns 84. She has alzheimer's so every day we have with her is a blessing. Everyday she recognizes us is a gift. thewronas@yahoo.com

Ginger said...

What a fun time with prizes to boot! I am blessed this year because I was able to retire which gives me more time to spend with Grandbabies and more time to craft!

Anonymous said...

Blessinngs? You never really know how blessed we are until you start to think about it! Last week our central air went out and we were so hot and miserable but we now have a nice new central unit and I was blessed to be able to pay for it! I am thankful I can create things. I just saw where there is a benefit garage sale and bakesale for a member of our church. I have a couple of weeks and I think I will make some card sets to sell. I have a bunch of candles and stuff I always feel obligated to buy at parties - I think this would be a good time to give them up since I don't usually burn candles. Someone else may as well benefit from them. As far as health, I am glad I was diagnosed and have the money and insurance to pay for my medications etc. I could go on and on!

Thanks for your amazing prizes.

I have been so blessed this past year. My husband has found a job giving my family the ability to be significantly more financially secure. My FIL also went through some scary medical stuff but in the end he came out okay. Not to mention both my little blessings; my 2 little girls.
Thanks for letting me play.

what an awesome prize package!
this past year i have been blessed with many things, but the first thing i thought of was my granddaughter. she is 21 months old, and every minute i spend with her is a true blessing. she lives 12 hours away with her parents, we try to get together as much as possible (4-5 times a year) but that's just not enough time!

Wow Kym these are all wonderful giveaways. I have many blessings but the one I rally think about on special days like today is I live in America. I live in a country that has freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the freedom to vote and other freedoms. I am truly blessed.

Our youth pastor has a saying he says all the time...GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! Luv that..simp25@frontier.com

Sharon said...

Oh what an awesome prize package! I'd have to say the biggest blessing over the past year was when my husband and daughter surprised me with a Wire Fox Terrier adoption to replace my 14 year old furry friend who left us on October 1, 2010.

Susan said...

SUPERB and GENEROUS giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity :)

I am disabled with all 4 limbs compromised, and spinal issues, and poor hubby still is working (due to this) and he'll be 70 in August.

so Blessing #1 is that hubby, eventhough diabetic with complications, and CAD...is still fit enough to work F/T and keep our heads above water.

Blessing# 2 My mom, is still alive at 84

Blessing #3 is our youngest child, who is the only one out of 3 that hasn't some kind of emotional break down all the time, and blaming us for problems in her life, and is still in our lives

Blessing #4, our son leaving (again) his dog with us, who has gone a long way to giving us both things to smile and laugh at on a daily basis, he left his cat with us also (who is cool cause he has 6 digits on each of his front paws) he can be fun sometimes, but more often then not he is a PITA

Blessing #5, all though in dire need of work, including some major, our old house is still providing shelter

Blessing #6 (equal to one) is Hubby allowing me to use my SS check (after food, and paying for our "pod" on myself(paper craft stuff or other)
Once we get out of this house, and he retires, that will not be the case. Our already tight budget, will be tighter. (Though hopefully we will not have a monthly mortgage or rent payment)

Blessing#7 My daughter (oldest) finally graduated college, after many years of bad relationships, and a bad marriage. we are estranged but I still am very proud of her and love her very much. She also was accepted to her first choice of Grad schools.

Blessing #8 A new Great-Nephew has joined the family, and he is beautiful! (healthy also)

Blessing #9 A Great-niece that has a very rare, fatal, and excruciatingly painful disease is still alive, and still brave and happy in between her painful 3 hour daily dressing changes. However, she is still having blue spells (turns blue and stops breathing due to the pain) and they are thinking about paralyzing her vocal cords to keep her from crying, but then of course she will not be able to speak.
if interested you can check her and the disease out at:

Thank you for making me look at the good things :)

Hello, I love the tin, so cool. I am so blessed. I am graduating July 5 with a Bachelors in the Science of Business. I have three healthy children. My husband has survived another year (he had two triple bypasses 3 years ago back-to-back a month apart as the first one failed). Both my parents survived life threatening surgeries. I can not complain. God is good!

Thinking over the past year, I must admit the bad things are what spring to mind first as my family suffered some pretty devastating losses. But you have me thinking of the good things - and there are many. We have had success in work and school, got to travel a bit, made some new friends and have grown even closer as a family.

momtodc(at)gmail(dot)com

Anonymous said...

I would have to say the biggest blessing I have had this year is just that fact that my family has stayed healthy, safe and happy. I have been blessed with a new job this year that allows me the flexibility to be home with my children when I need to be and allows me to contribute financially to our needs. Thanks for a chance to win. (That would be a blessing, too!)
