GIVEAWAY TIME!!!


December is nearly upon us and it's been ages since I did a giveaway, so I thought I would offer up 3 Advent Calendars to my lovely followers from twitter, facebook and over here on the blog.


All you have to do to be entered in for the giveaway, is to leave a comment about what design / theme you would like to see on next years advent calendar.


I should have it already finished but time has escaped me, so it will have to be launched mid year, in time for the Christmas trade buying.


I have some ideas but I really value your thoughts too - after all you are the people that buy them.

So if you have time and wish to be entered, please just leave a comment on here with your idea or theme - simple.

I will announce 3 winners early next week.

Good morning, well as my favourite thing is Owls then you got me already which is why i'm here of course lol. My next favourite thing is crafting/baking but i'm not sure that that lends itself to an advent calender but then you could say the same about Owls so there are a couple of ideas but other than that i'm all about tradition when it comes to Christmas and not chocolate advents. Happy Holidays :)

Sally B said...

How about a shabby chic dresser with pretty spotty cups and teapots!

buttonshackblog said...

Some children in the snow wrapped up in big coats, scarves, hats and gloves would be cute, maybe with a snowman!

dosierosie said...

I love Christmas fairies and think a fat spotty one would be fun. The owls this year are wonderful.

Just Luverly said...

How about Mr & Mrs Santa at their Christmas table groaning with food, turkey, Christmas pud, mince pies etc not forgetting some thing for the reindeers!!

Twinkleytoes said...

Definately a Christmas scene with Reindeer, lots of Reindeer, all about The Reindeer. Would be the bestest Advent Calendar ever! Joanna Kate Oliver on fb, ooh_err_twinkletoes@hotmail.com

Dazie said...

I would love to see a Dots and Spots take on the Nativity for a advent calender.

mimagirlcreations said...

How about a scene with mice...as in `The Church Mice' in an old church pipe organ or something.. my other thought was a little bit vintage looking some skaters on a frozen pond with lovely minkee hats, scarves and mittens on them.

Helena said...

Hey Becky

Loving the designs you have but would also love to see maybe Father Christmas, in his little toy workshop with all the little elves working away with their paintbrushes, hammers etc. May be the first time Santa wears a spotty red outfit!? :0)

Keep up the good work x

Helen said...

How about a fireplace with roaring fire and mantlepiece covered with holly & ivy, tinsel, presents etc! or a night time scene with santa on his sleigh flying through the skies? or a beautifully spotty decorated Christmas tree? Am sure whatever you choose will look amazing! Helen at Kindred Rose xx

Barbara said...

Wondering if you could use the 12 Days of Christmas theme(partridge in pear tree) etc but in your amazing style.....

crafts@home said...

Reindeer..... in a woodland setting, possibly at night with a moon? Or a gingerbread house in the same setting?

Helen said...

I really like the idea of a gingerbread house, decorated with lots of dotty and stripey sweet treats. I'm sure whatever you decide on will be brilliant!

Caroline Morris said...

I think you should do a lovely spotty Christmas tree decorated with baubles, candy canes, stars and tinsel with oodles of pressies underneath. It would look fab!

KERRY said...

Hello, our whole christmas is around Santa as we have a 4 year old boy, so i would love to see Santa with a huge pile of christmas presents in your stunning wrapping paper with the usual christmas tree and babbles etc and there has got to be a robin there too, but what ever you decide i will be stunning.. x kerry

hello gorgeous said...

hey gorgeous! what a fab giveaway ;o)

How about one of the following:

*Snowmen having a snowball fight;
*A snow covered log cabin with Santa at the chimney, Christmas trees all around and his reindeer and sleigh on the snow covered ground;
*Christmas Carollers giving a Christmas concert;
* Santas workshop with all the toys and elves around him;
*Santa sitting by the fire with his feet up warming them after a long day in the workshop with a cup of cocoa in hand;

I have more ideas....but so do others!! ;op~

Have a great Friday...

hugs

hello gorgeous xxx

Jenny said...

Oooh so many ideas you could do! Maybe a santa and sleigh in the snow with lots of presents stacked up... I do like the idea of a little gingerbread house too, that would be really sweet. Or maybe a traditional xmas tree with candy canes and presents, or a fireplace with stockings and holly, with santa's mince pie and glass of sherry by the side? Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! xx

Roobarb said...

Hi Becky

I would say robins or penguins :)
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Erica Martyn said...

J9 said...

hi

How about reindeers made out of dots and spots and maybe some elves too. xx janine xx

Mrs Bav said...

What about using some of your christmas card desings like a robin, holly, stripy candy and christmas tree with ginger bread men and women and ginger bread house some funky stars that your good at like on your sticky tape and some spots and dots around the place. And some christmas bunting .

Claire said...

I would love to see Father and Mother Christmas's washing line with 2 hats and 2 suits hung out to dry :)

milly and pip said...

A dots and spots house would be nice. You could show xmassy things in room settings. Like stockings on beds, presents under the tree etc.

Carol said...

Love your goodies, so pretty :)

Just me, Leah said...

I'd like to see penguins and snowflakes. I love snowflakes!

The Krafty Cupcake said...

What a fab giveaway. I would love to see Robins and snowmen on next years Advent. Although it will be hard to top the owls! Sue x

LittleGem said...

Oh those are gorgeous!
Love them!
I know its a kind of obvious one but I'd like to see a house advent calendar as I bet your dots and spots house would look beautiful x

Bimble & Rose said...

Ooooh - gorgeous calendar.
How about a Dickensian style "Christmas Carol" style calendar, with the cute little windows in Ye Olde Sweet Shop and lots of snow :)
xx

Quirky Boots said...

omgoodness what a fab giveaway, i have to say for me the design would have to be cupcakes, figgy puddings and christmas bunting all together ;) xxx

happyfox said...

I'd love to see a bird table in the snow with lots of winter visitors, or maybe ducks on the frozen canal & children feeding them. You could have a lovely spotty canal barge as well :)

@happyfox

daisy daydreams said...

Mmm, thats a hard one. I really love gingerbread men, although snowmen are a close second.
amandakirby10@btinternet.com

abatha said...

love this years calendar! how about a snowflake themes, lots of different colours and shapes per snowflake xx

Alison - Belovedly said...

A large wreath with all sorts of christmassy things on it - holly at the top, robins perched, stars twinkling, snowflakes glistening, baubles sparkling etc etc. I think that would look really cool in your dots and spots style.

Pene said...

Polar bears I love Polar bears, cute ones playing in the snow maybe wearing little hats and scarfs (spotty of course). The advent calenders are gorgeous and I'm sure whatever you decide to do next year will be even better.
Have a great weekend Becky
Big hugs
Pene x

GrapeVine said...

What a gorgeous calendar! I can picture a Christmas hearth scene with a fireplace and a tree, and the characters in it would be cute cats, being naughty - climbing inthe stockings, unwrapping the presents and stealing the tree baubles - or looking all innocent and pretending they had nothing to do with it. Done in your distinctive style it would be something to really treasure

xx Nicki (home bird)xx said...

I have found your blog through a post on Kandipandi's pad and would love to be included in the draw please.

Thanks

Nicki xx

Sarah said...

another gorgeous product in the ever expanding beautiful dots and spots range, well done x

CarrotyCarrots said...

Some spotty penguins standing under a spotty tree! :)

Petal Textiles said...

Ooh what about woolley jumpers and hats, especially christmas style jumpers. Or winter wildlife (deers, foxes, badgers, squirrels, robins etc..), or socks (stockings).

Jo Y said...

They're absolutely beautiful and next year I'd like to see penguins :)

Mouse said...

Hi there, great giveaway, thank you. What about christmas puddings, that was the first thing that came to my mind, some great suggestions already on here though, maybe christmas baubles, crackers, holly & ivy, candy canes, snow globes, christmas wreaths. x

Sarah David said...

I couldn't read all of the comments to see if this has already been suggested..but as advent calendars are mainly for children, how about children's traditional toys..so a teddy bear, jack in the box, stacking cups etc..all in a shabby chic spotty theme!

Queen Bee said...

A tree with beautiful baubles and a spot of sparkly glitter here and there !

The Writing Bureau said...

What about a row of old gorgeous houses and cottages along a lane, all different shapes and sizes and the windows and doors could be the openings for the calender...
Also, thanks for a great blog :)

Moobaacluck said...

I think a Christmas toy shop window display could work really well -lots of opportunity for flaps :)

(p.s Happy Birthday for tomorrow Mrs!X) love Gabsx

Mrs Shilts said...

I'd love to see dots and spots gingerbread people! I think your designs would look fantastic

@MrsShilts x

Polkadot Pumpkin said...

i love the design you've done already but as a huge fairytale fan, i'd like to see a fairytale themed design... Maybe hansel and gretel's gingerbread house, or a beanstalk with jellybeans or maybe even just santa's grotto with lots of elves, fairies and fairydust?

Charlotte said...

Penguins and igloos, with flaps for doors... there would need to be a lot of igloos :) very excited to have an opportunity to win an advent calendar!

sue15cat said...

It would look wonderful as Santas workshop with lots of lovely spotty toys and books.

But I love all your designs, so maybe we should wait for what is lurking in your imagination.

Sue xx

Style Outside The Box said...

Happpy Birthday!!! I would love to win the calender!! sooo cute :)

Karenza Paperie said...

Well the hardest thing to find are items to send to warmer climates for christmas that do not have snow, etc. So I would like a design with an alternative christmas in the sun. I love these christmas stamps from the christmas islands (so this sort of idea)
