Gingerbread and Snowflakes

I just won a blog giveaway from Gingerbread and Snowflakes . What makes this so special is Pam and her blog. It's a blog that features her creative projects and often informative blogs from other bloggers about crafts. She is where I got the idea to do the Pay-It-Forward to other bloggers who provide content online. This is her post about the idea. She in turn was inspired by her very crafty daughter, Diane of Craftypod , who has some really informative posts about podcasting. Pam has taken the Pay-It-Forward idea a step further and is now holding giveaways each month that feature an online blogger or group. For June she featured the The Etsy Italia Team CHARITY Shop , which is a group that donates items, whose sale benefits various charities in Italy. Right now they are donating the proceeds to help victims of the recent earthquakes in Italy that have killed several people and left many homeless. I'm glad winning this giveaway contributes to helping others suffering from disaster, and hope they are able to get the help they need quickly to get through this crisis.

This was what I won:

Beautiful! Thank you, Pam!


  1. You are most Welcome!! And you are sooooo right - they ARE beautiful! I can't even imagine the work and skill that went into making these fingerless gloves.

    The Etsy Team has worked very hard to get the word out into the community of bloggers and when corrected for costs of Etsy and pay pal have raised over $1200.00 so far.

    I appreciate so much your entry in this giveaway particularly. So Thank you back 1,000,000 times!

  2. I'm a member of Etsy Italia team.
    Congratulations for being the winner! :)
    Those gloves are lovely, as the girl who made them!

  3. Congrats! :D Thank you so much for your support :) Soon we'll able to post the news about the campaign on our team blog :)

  4. Thank you, glad to raise awareness for your cause and can't wait to hold the beautiful gloves in my hands. :)
