First Ever Giveaway!

As promised, I am posting the giveaway on cheapchic.  I saw this in a magazine and thought I could easily recreate this without spending tons of money on it. 

Not the greatest picture of actually how pretty it looks, but what you'll receive is:
  • 1 large green snowflake
  • 1 small green snowflake
  • 2 large white snowflakes
  • 2 small white snowflakes
  • 2 small purple snowflakes
  • 1 large purple snowflake
  • 3 blue icicles
I've used them as a centerpiece over my dining table; in this scenario, I hung them from my (ugly rental) chandelier.  They're hung using invisible quilting thread, which is a stronger nylon thread.  Other ways that they can be used include hanging them from ceilings, window sills, and on your Christmas Tree.

In order to win, you must:
  • be a resident of Canada or the United States (50 states)
  • leave a comment on the blog underneath this post or if for some reason you're having difficulty leaving a comment, you can email  Please put November giveaway in the subject line of the email though so I don't accidently erase it.
Contest closes Friday, November 26, at 12:00 a.m. central time.  Only one winner will be picked (draw).


To know how to make this, stayed tuned for tomorrow's diy!


  1. Very cool Julie! Love the purple ones especially :) Have you done any craft shows this season?

  2. No, no craft shows...I've been unemployed for almost 6 months now, and it's taken its toll on me financially....hopefully I'll be working within the next couple of weeks (fingers crossed) and I can start living again!

  3. Beautiful! I love the contrast between the colours that you chose. I love it when snow looks like diamonds, and the glitter does just that. (Ashley Booth Gingras)
