Gifts of time and love
are surely the basic ingredients of
a truly merry Christmas

I picked up two extra packages
of these lovely mini liners

Some chocolate sticks in the Christmas colors

Just leave me a comment on this post
and perhaps one of the two
little Christmassy pre-Joy packages
will arrive at your doorstep next week !

  29. Hoi Saskia,

    Wat een héérlijke giveaway! Ik doe graag mee!! Alleen de cupcake vormpjes zijn al zo schattig :-)! Wij hebben vandaag alvast wat sprinkles gekocht voor op de kerstkoekjes. Misschien is het ook wel iets voor jullie. Ze hebben bij de Xenos een bus met verschillende soorten figuurtjes: o.a. kerstboompjes, sneeuwvlokjes & sterretjes in het rood, groen en wit. Echt heel schattig! Een fijn weekend!

    Lieve groet, Madelief
