Ho Ho Ho ladies and gentlemen.

I promised to give out goodies in December and although most will likely be links to downloadable fabulousness and links to other blogger's giveaways I will certainly be dolling out a few freebies myself. It's time.

The first little something I have for you is one of my super sweet (if I don't say so myself) alien stockings. I should have done this a couple weeks ago so that the very lucky winner would have the stocking for Christmas (there's a novel idea) but I didn't so oh well, you'll have it to stash away for next near! See, what I'm actually doing is helping you out with your Christmas shopping for 2009. No need to thank me.

The stocking I am putting up for grabs is not the one show in the photo above so the pattern placement will differ slightly. The lining is red cotton and the white trim is crazy soft. This stocking is not listed in my shop because of the fact that I sewed the trim on a little wonky. The seam on the trim doesn't line up with the seam on the stocking, it's one of those things that isn't at all noticeable unless you are looking for an oops. Why did I even bother mentioning it? Well... the winner might examine the stocking closely and if they were to find the oops and I hadn't mentioned it they might just think I'm sloppy and I wouldn't want them to think I sell sloppy goods in my shop. Blah, blah, blah. What was meant to be a short post has turned ridiculous.

If you want this adorable alien stocking what you need to do is post a comment telling me about a fav Christmas memory or a tradition you love. Post your comment by Sunday December 14th so that I can draw a winner late Sunday evening and ship this puppy off on Monday morning. Depending on where you live there's a slight possibility that you might receive the stocking by Christmas.... it's doubtful but possible. Never say never! Remember to leave me some info whether it be an email address or a link to your blog so that I can reach you if you win.

Feel free to let your friends know about the giveaway. It's time for the lurkers to show their pretty selves. There are many regular readers here at JJ who I have yet to 'meet' so this is your opportunity to leave a comment, don't be afraid, I won't bite... hard.

Threatening to tell my baby sister what Santa was getting her for christmas if she didn't look in my parents closet and tell me what they bought for me. I would have never told her but it is a memory that stays with me.

That and trekking through the xmas tree farm in search of that perfectly shaped tree followed by A&W in Cambridge.

My favorite tradition is putting our stockings at the end of our bed on christmas eve. It was fantastic to wake up in the am with goodies there. We do that with our son & daughter now.

You were such a mean brother! ;) I totally thought you would tell me and you know how much I love surprised, it would have KILLED me. Of course now I realize you never would have... it's not like you really needed me to tell you anyways, you had your sly ways of finding out for yourself!

I love the idea of leaving stockings at the end of your bed on Christmas eve! I think that will be one tradition I might have to borrow (waaaaay down the road or course).
