Hi Judy
what generous candy!
I don't celebrate christmas but it is a time when many of my family and friends are off work and we can get together for some relaxation. No doubt my little niece (aged3) will want to search through my crafty bits to make flowers, flowers and more flowers!
hugs Sarah x

Sharon Keanly said...

What stunning candy Judy. Thanks so much for your generosity. This Christmas will be incredibly special as my father's health is not good and today he heard that his brother's cancer is back... so I think this Christmas we will arrange that the family get together, as we have no idea what the new year holds. We just want to love each other, remember the good times and chat fondly about days gone by. Hugs Sharon x

Lorraine said...

An amazing Christmas candy Judy, my husband and I look forward every year to giving a concert at the local nursing home on Christmas eve for an hour. We've done this for the last 6 years since being home. They really do appreciate it and love to join in the singing.

paola said...

wow! thanks so much for the chance to win some amazing stash, i do follow your blog, however just like you, never seem to find enough hours in the day for visiting and running a large family aswell as blogging.
Well we dont celebrate Christmas, but we are celbrating Hannukah at the moment and what i really am looking forward to since we are the opposite season i am looking forard to going to the coast with my family to visit my Parents who live at the beach, just being with family and catching up, bonding.
You may wanna enter my birthday candy also.

Julye said...

Fab candy Judy and how nice that you want to know more about us. I have lots I look forward to at Christmas, spending time with my family of course, seeing my in-laws who live in Tenerife and come to the UK for christmas, seeing my 16 year old sons face when he has said all he wants for christmas is money and that he's not really bothered and we buy him something that he is so not expecting after he has his small amount of money, he is just so easy to wind up.
For me I have other things to look forward to firstly after Christmas comes new year and then I can start to do some more energetic normal things as this is the timeline my consultant gave me post my complicated hysterectomy and as I have some sassy girl stamps bought and sent to santa I will be looking forward to playing with them as I keep ooking at the package and wondering if I should be naughty? Then Santa might not bring me any goodies next year though if I were naughty would he.
Have a fab christmas with your boys and hold the magic for as long as you can.

Fab candy and thanks for the chance too.

Brussel Sprouts! Mmmmm.

Jane said...

It's got to be the girls faces when they come down and see the presents under the tree....and the crumbs and empty glass on Santa's plate!


jenny said...

Hi Judy!
I am REALLY looking forward to going down to Yorkshire to spend Christmas with family for the 1st time since we moved to Scotland :) I just hope the weather does'nt scupper our plans!!

Fabulous candy :)

Jenny xx

TanySol said...

Oh Judy!!!! Little giveaway ??? It's biiig and awesome giveaway!!!
8 years I lived with my mother in Israel. Here don't celebrate Christmas - there is no pre-holiday excitement and can't hear the songs, no trees, no snow and no one hears cries of "Merry Christmas!!!" But I and my mom every year we decorate a small Christmas tree, exchange gifts, drink wine, light candles and miss the Christmas festivities, bells, and the miracle of Christmas night.
Thanks for the chance to win this beauty!
Marry Christmas and Happy Holidays Judy!!!!

Renkata said...

ohh such a lovely and kind candy dear Judy.
I love Christmas time, this year I just will spend it with the most important people in my live and just will enjoy every minute of it. I am living abroud and don't see them so often.
I wish you magical Christmas time and a lot of joy!

Shazza said...

oooh thank you Judy, what am I looking forward too??
Time off work, Chritmas morning when my boys see what Santa brought them and cooking dinner for my family.

Tanya R said...

Such sweet candy, nothing little about it. I have to say I am looking forward to playing with my two daughters. We are all in need of some quality family time, and some of that will be spent in pyjamas until noon!

Geraldine said...

I really look forward to the moment I get into bed after Santa has been - what a relief!!! He's been and gone and nobody heard a thing. MAGIC. Also look forward to Christmas dinner (desert actually!) and playing Lego and other things with my boys age 4 and 6. Also can't wait to see the look on my teenage daughters eyes when they see the concert tickets they get. HoHoHo, Merry Christmas to all, thanks for the chance to win this fab candy

mustavcoffee said...

Hi Judy, what a lovely lady you are, thanks for this lovely opportunity. The thing I look forward to the most is all the family being together and my grand daughters faces Christmas morning, simply magic:0) xx

Hugs Sonia xx

Erika said...

Wow lovely candy Judy. What I'm looking forwards to this Christmas.....I'm going to sound like a real humbug...LOL...but every Christmas we travel to family or have family here and this year because of all the lovely snow we've had..we've decided to say at home alone...just the four of us. So we can do what we like when we like and just, as hubby would say, "chill our herbs!"

Maria Therese said...

Oh I'm really looking forward to some time of from work to spend with the kids :) And of course christmas dinner :)
This year we will only be the 4 of us and that will be so great!!!

What I always look forward to each Christmas is spending time with my family--that is what is most important to me. Thank you for the chance to win your generous candy and for all the inspiration you've given me throughout the year!

Dragonlady said...

Hi Judy

Beautiful candy so generous. I am looking forward to a totally family Christmas day - no treking off to relatives or collecting people. It will be the first time my husband, myself and the children have had the day to ourselves ever!
Hope you have a great Christmas too.

Rhonda Miller said...

Naomi said...

Ahhh, everyone's stories are so lovely or sad, but in a way that makes me feel lucky for everything that I have :)

This Christmas I am looking forward to being a child! There's not much chance for it with all the stress that college + my dodgy health cause, and Christmas is the perfect time to forget all my worries, spend time with my siblings, get over excited about little things and remember that I'm actually only 16!

Minami said...

What a wonderful candy! On Christmas eve i will be working until 10.30pm but i am looking forward to sharing the Christmas spirit with all my customers. It makes it so special to see other people having fun and enjoying themselves.

sandra said...

Judy you are so talented and sweet and I'm lucky to know you,and those things are making me coming back.

I'll tell you what I'm looking forward!
My Birthday is 21.12.and that is when I'm starting backing Birthday/Christmas cookies and cakes with my kids.
I make about 10 types of them every year.
And those days my kitchen is full of laugh,aromas,movement....
Just love it!

How about you???

This candy is perfect!
Thanks for the chance!

Nicki (LittleTed) said...

Lovely candy Judy, thanks for the chance to win some crafty goodies for Christmas.

I'm looking forward to a quiet, happy and peaceful Christmas Day with my husband - he loves to read and I've bought him a Kindle so I don't expect to hear a peep out of him once he's opened it! We had a sad time last year due to a family tragedy on Christmas morning, so this year I will be happy just to be with my loved ones, all safe and well.

Merry Christmas, Nicki, xx

Julie said...

Hi judy great candy!
Im looking forward for xmas day as the 3 kids for some reason never argue on the day! I wonder why!! Lol!!
Also just to spend time as a family.
julie x

Amanda R said...

This is some wonderful candy! I have been wanting a lot of the stuff you are offering and I don't think santa is getting it for me! Merry Christmas and thanks again for the chance to win.

Sarah said...

I just love the whole buzz of Christmas, the panic of getting everything ready and prepared, the anticipation of if everyone liked their gifts and the sparkle in the kids eyes as they open their presents, especially the one from Santa - the wonder and merriment of family time together and the special magic - It is only one day but so much to enjoy and excitment. I hope you have a great Christmas and New Year.
Best wishes Sarah

Ruth said...

Judy, THis is such a generous candy! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
So much has changed healthwise in our family since last year that I'm really looking forward to a rest for a couple of days to thanks God that, no matter what, we are still together. My mother has had 2 strokes and needs a lot of looking after and my brother is very slowly recovering after a major operation for bowel cancer.We have had a lot of time together in our distress but it has been good to be together as a family.Ruth x

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Judy, what lovely blog candy you have on offer. I shall look forward to spending Christmas Day with my mum, a friend, my husband and two sons. We shall have lovely food cooked by my husband and just time to have a rest and a natter. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Beth said...

Wow, such a lovely candy Judy! I was thinking of doing the same as I never seem to have the time for blogging these days - I get a spare 20 mins and I'd rather spend it crafting! So thanks for the opportunity! On to your question, my fave thing I'm looking forward to is having the time off to spend with my family, drinking wine at lunchtime with no guilt(!) and having the house full of laughter - cheesy but it's true! I'd love to know what you're looking forward to!

Love Beth xx

Michelle said...

Judy what an amazing candy offer!! What am I looking forward to this Christmas? I am looking forward to it BEING OVER!!!!! I used to love the holiday but over the last few years I've come to dread it & am a total Scrooge now! We only put up one tree (we used to do two --now I just make the kids do theirs, lol), I no longer send out cards (I know --gasp --a card maker who doesn't send cards!) & I make wayyy less cookies than I used to. Also, I went back to work this year so I don't even get a Christmas vacation anymore!! Nope --I am looking forward to JANUARY!!!

(gosh I hope this doesn't disqualify me, lol)


Dara Lynn said...

What a gorgeous, thoughtful giveaway! and yes, the crafty friendships are the best! Our Christmas came early this year, when our son who serves in the Air Force was able to come home on leave from overseas for 3 weeks!! It will be another 2 or more years before we see him again.. so this time was so precious to hubby and I. He flew back on Saturday and has made it back safely. I lost my job last year and have had a year full of rejection, but this Christmas..even early.... how blessed I am!

Rufus said...

Are ARE feeling Christmasy, aren't you? I'm looking forward to having Christmas with my parents, since we almost lost my Mom last year. This year everyone is healthy so it's going to be a joyous time.
Thanks for the chance at such great goodies.

Paula said...

Goodness Judy - this is some Thank You from you. Hope you have a lovely time with your family. What am I looking forward to - time enjoying my husband's company & being grateful for what we have in terms of health & friends; seeing my husband engrossed in his books without worrying about the decorating or ironing (he doesn't like my ironing).
Paula (PEP)

Stampin Mindy said...

Very Generous Judy! The one think I'm looking forward to is seeing my kids faces when they open their presents. This year we have been able to get them more than in the last 4-5 years. I'm really excited.

HAve a Merry Christmas, Thanks for the chance to win.

Hugs, Mindy

Anonymous said...

Hi Judy
it is so hard to just tell you one thing that I am looking forward to at Christmas (when there are so many)lol. Top of my list must be spending time with family & friend's. As you say we all lead such busy live's so Christmas is a time when family & friends can all come together. If I was allowed to have 2 things that I am looking forward to at Christmas, (a very close second) would be going to midnight mass with my family, the church is magical on Christmas Eve, it's so lovely to see it all lit up with twinkly lights.

sucor said...

Thank you for the chance to win your very generous candy! I am looking forward to our family gathering to visit and spend time with family.

Julie said...

Hi Judy
I'm looking forward to the thought of winning this fab candy !

Ha lol, really, I'm looking forward to my first Christmas with my new partner and his children and boxing day with my daughter.

A wonderful peaceful christmas for all.

Kat said...

Lovely candy Judy. Thanks for the chance to win.
At Christmas I'm looking forward to spending time with my family and seeing my 2 grandchildren enjoying Christmas Day.

Kat xx

Green-Eyed Girl said...

I adore Christmas, because that's the time when everyone is happy and tries to spread his love and happiness to all the people. The presents, the christmas trees and the kind Santa Clause with his presents...

Katie said...

Hi there,

Your tags look fabulous! I love your tags on Etsy and your Heart to Heart card is a favorite of mine! Someday I will get better at this whole card-making thing. :) Practice, practice, that is why I like doing the online challenges, because it forces me to get things done with the deadline and I get to use all of my cool stuff (that I have ... collected, for some purpose). I think that my favorite thing about Christmas this year is getting to see my sister. It has been a couple of months since I have seen her, we are so different. But when we get together, it is amazing how the similarities come through, we gravitate towards the same things. If we are shopping in a store, she does not have the patience to shop beside me, because she is quick and I am slow, but she will come from across the store holding the same thing in her hand as what I am holding. Funny things like that happen. I hope you are well! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

Best wishes!

Neet said...

Well, starting Tuesday I am looking forward to visiting the Christmas market in Dusseldorf. Then the following Monday seeing my friend and her little girl who I love dearly. She is such a beautiful child and I would love to share a photo of her with everyone but in this day and age I just daren't put her on my blog.
Then there is Christmas Day to look foward to - seeing my big boy (6'5") and his partner - the first year I will not have had to cook. Ah the bliss of getting older!
Hope you share your Christmas with us all via your wonderful blog. Wishing Peace for Christmas and the New Year.

Anki said...
