It's Give Away Time!

Canning Granny is celebrating achieving over 1,000 (count them... one thousand!) Facebook "Likes" (I'm not sure why they changed "Fans" to "Likes"... fans sounded so much more... well... "fannish!" but I digress)...

Believe me, I would dearly LOVE to send each and every one of you 1,000 plus folks a gift in thanks for your support, friendship, and love... most of you I have never seen in person... but I count each and every one of you as a friend... and some of you as family. So, since I am unable to send everyone a gift I'm gonna give every one of you a chance to receive this token of my extreme appreciation.

Here's how it works...

I couldn't narrow it down to ONE gift... so I will leave it up to the winner to choose ONE of the three below...


First option, since I AM Canning Granny after all... a half-pint jar of  my home canned Habanero Gold jelly (click to see post). This beautiful jelly contains habanero peppers, red peppers, and dried apricots and is delicious with cream cheese on crackers, as a glaze for meat and I'm sure many other yummy things.

OR



Second option, since I have recently picked up my crochet hook and am definitely "hooked" on it again... one of my favorite scarves... this one is made from very soft, very fuzzy multi-colored yarn in fall colors of oranges, browns, greens and creams.

OR


Third option, since I make my own all-natural soaps, lotions, and other bath and beauty products (www.southernheartsoaps.com)... a collection of some of my favorite products... three bars of soap... one honey oatmeal an all natural soap which contains real honey, real oatmeal, and is skin-loving and moisturizing... one Granny's Old-Fashioned Lye Soap which is exactly what it sounds like, a nostalgic tribute to days gone by, unscented, simple, moisturizing, and all natural... one Southern Cook's Coffee Soap... a soap made with real coffee and added coffee grounds that make a great exfoliant... coffee is odor absorbing so this soap is great for the kitchen to remove the odors of onions, fish, garlic, etc. from your hands (YES! it really works!)... also in this little set, I'm including a 6 ounce tube of Clarity Hand and Body Lotion made from avocado butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, with the essential oils of rosemary, lavender, geranium, lemongrass and peppermint which add skin-nourishing properties as well as mental clarity... and last but not least... a tube of peppermint lip balm made with honey, beeswax, olive oil and peppermint essential oil.

And what YOU need to do...

...is comment on THIS blog post (below) with your NAME, and which gift you prefer... (1) JELLY (2) SCARF or (3) SOAP SET

On Monday, December 26 at midnight, the give away ends.

Tuesday, December 27, I will put all the names in a wide mouth canning jar and draw the winner out randomly... I will then post the name on the Canning Granny Facebook Page ... the winner will have 48 hours to email me at canninggranny@gmail.com with their Name and Mailing Address. Should I NOT hear from the winner, I will draw another name on Thursday, December 29 and post THAT name on Facebook as well.

I'm so excited!!! Good luck to my wonderful, supportive readers... You are all winners in my book!

  19. New Hampshire is getting pretty chilly, the mountains may not have God given snow but they sure are making Man made snow and those scarves look soooo warm! It's a toss up between warming up my insides, warming up my outsides or just "chillin" in the tub to pamper myself before sitting by the woodstove!

  88. Hey Pam, wanted to come over and give you a shout out! I SO LOVE your blog posts and your information on homemade items. I made most of my gifts for Christmas this year off your site and everything was a big hit. It was less expensive and truly from the heart. I had a blast putting everthing together and having Yancy help me was the best. I even enlisted the help of her boyfriend and my husband. Thanks again for all you comments and suggestions. You are a great writer and you have been inspirational. Congrats on your fans. Take care....................Tracy Ravan Waters
