Cute right? So cute! I love stripes, I love bows, I love tiny!  Together you have the new striped motif stamp!  Too many exclamation points? Okay, I will try to dial it down this Monday morn, but I am excited.  I have to admit this holiday creep that happened the day after Halloween has thrown me a bit. Why did I not notice that people are getting ready for holiday so soon?  I am usually either hyper aware or totally oblivious, it's how I live my life, the holiday creep must of been one of my oblivious moments, but back to the stamp...I think it will be something that will be useful way past Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza, etc. It's just a good little stamp to have. It's especially cute printed in red, very festive!  Of course, I shall be giving one away because Mondays are always better when  a prize is involved, right?  Just re-pin this here, or Tweet it, or leave me a delightful comment, I am open to however you would like to enter to win.  I will announce the winner next Monday. If you can't wait, you can always pick one up here.

How is your shopping coming along? Are you like everyone else and have started your shopping in July for holiday?  Or are you waiting until after Thanksgiving and will succumb to the holiday heat?  I'm not a last minute shopper, I actually think about gifts all year round (if you haven't gathered yet, I am a bit obsessive, so no surprise that I have been thinking about something for 12 months straight).  This will be the first year though that I prepared so thoroughly personally. I was assuming professionally I wouldn't have to bring out the goods until the day after Thanksgiving, but I have quickly learned otherwise--noted.

And I must announce the winner of last weeks giveaway the Stag silhouette  + tiny snowflake, I couldn't choose just one so I chose--Paulina Bäfverfeldt and Georgina Gill (because flattery gets you everywhere with me). I do hope it makes the winners less anxious to know they can make holiday goods (cards, tags, ornaments, etc.) on the fly!  Good luck to everyone on today's giveaway and thank you all as always for playing, it delights me to no end to be able to see what you will create with the prizes.  Oh, yes, and of course this giveaway is open world wide!

I love the fun playfulness and the simplicity of the bow stamp. I would be excited to use on note cards to my girl friends.

I re-pined it but I wanted to say how beautiful that bow is.
About Christmas gifts. I usually collect gifts through the last 3 months before Christmas. I just write down ideas for each person and keep the paper with me, so whan I'm in a shop and if I see something that matches my ideas I can buy it :) also I do a lot of diy.
Ahh, I can't wait for Advent to start, I just love that pre-Christmas time :)

Jill Lauck (November 19, 2012 at 8:05 AM)  

I repinned it yesterday, but still love it here today. :) Just spent a whirlwind of a day doing lots of holiday shopping in Philadelphia yesterday and am excited to begin wrapping gifts one night soon. I usually wrap in brown kraft paper and use gold and white dot or hot pink washi tape. How lovely would this little bow be in place of a ribbon? So so good. As is all your work. :)

the homesteady (November 19, 2012 at 9:24 AM)  

pinned, hooray! this bow is too cute. i'm thinking red ink on kraft paper for holiday wrapping :)

Alice (November 19, 2012 at 9:31 AM)  

So cute! I would love this stamp. :D

Elizabeth Chastain (November 19, 2012 at 10:27 AM)

Allison Winter (November 19, 2012 at 10:50 AM)

Nnenna (November 19, 2012 at 12:27 PM)  

This bow is absolutely adorable and like you said, I can envision using it far beyond the holiday season! I've started posting gift guides on my blog and I've done plenty of online browsing, but haven't actually bought any gifts yet. I know what you mean- I can't believe how the holiday season just snuck up on me, but it's my favorite time of year, so I can't complain! :)

Windlost (November 19, 2012 at 3:16 PM)  

I think that is just about the prettiest little stamp I've ever seen. I don't think I have ever won a giveaway, so pick me okay? hehe. P.S. Do you know if you ask for a free coffee at Starbucks they will give you one?

Kathy W (November 19, 2012 at 10:19 PM)  

That is so cute. I can see it on the flap of my Christmas cards right now. Thanks for the chance to win one.

spunthoughts (November 19, 2012 at 10:43 PM)  

How adorable! I love that it is tiny and a bow! In red it would look like candy-striped and ready for the holidays! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! Pinned also!

Rita (November 19, 2012 at 10:45 PM)  

I love that bow stamp. Everything about it is perfection. How have I not stumbled upon this amazing store before? I am absolutely smitten and want everything.

LatteLisa LisaHjalt (November 21, 2012 at 5:40 AM)  

Love that stamp! I'm so in ;-) I just repinned it.

I'm not one of those who shops for Christmas in July, definitely not. It's more like the end of November/beginning of December. I don't buy that many presents but I'm already writing down ideas. I think I'm more excited about the food ;-)

christen barnes (November 21, 2012 at 2:34 PM)  

Darling. Repinned. All you stuff is simply wonderful.

Hello there !

I say "there" because if this giveaway is world wide, please note I'm writing from Paris, France.

As a graphic designer, I am so inspired by all kind of drawings and this stamp is really cute !

It's also perfect for this Christmas season and I imagine it on the future gifts wraps I'll make (not present bought yet on my side...)

So nice of you to do this giveaway and excuse my English mistakes...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jo (November 23, 2012 at 2:15 AM)  

So cute. Would be perfect for my wedding invites and thank you cards.

Janelle Schank (November 24, 2012 at 3:08 PM)  

So cute! I love handmade Christmas cards! This is a perfect little decoration for them :)

You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in
finding this topic to be really one thing that I believe
I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm
taking a look ahead for your subsequent publish, I'll attempt to get the hang of it!
