Here’s your assignment this week:
If you’ve been browsing the pages of Designs Nov/Dec. 2011 issue, you’re probably wondering what happened to Platinum Embroidery’s ad on page 81. It wasn’t a typo, Platinum Embroidery wanted their ad displayed in that manner. Tell me what was different about their ad and you could win a $35.00 gift certificate to Designs’ website. Hope you win!
We have lots of winners to announce this week! 4 Winners will receive $25 Gift Certificates to spend on SWAKembroidery.com and 1 luck winner will receive Designer Handbags!
The FOUR winners of last week’s assignment answered the following question: Christmas decorations and ornaments can evoke warm memories of childhood. What’s your favorite motif? Is it a star, reindeer, Santa, snowflakes or a menorah? Do you have a central theme running through your holiday decorations? Share your thoughts and you could be one of four lucky winners this week. What’s the prize? FOUR lucky winners will receive a $25.00 gift certificate from SWAKembroidery.com!
And the FOUR lucky winners are….
Winner 1: Donna G. “Most of our decorations are those that have been handed down through the family, or are handmade. It makes for eclectic decor, but great holiday traditions and memories!”
Winner 2. Beth R. “I love snowflakes, especially free-standing lace ornaments. But then again, I love any ornament – the only theme that my decorations follow is ‘most anything (within reason) goes!”
Winner 3. Tammy: “I am addicted to SWAK embroidery!!! I have been coveting that mitten! I LOVE Angels of any shape or size!!! They are my favorite Christmas motif — Santas come in a close 2nd!!!!!”
Winner 4. Doree Shandera: “My favorite ornaments are nativity scene ones. We have collected several over the years. Next favs are all the ornaments our 4 kids have made over the years. We put them all on and have many fond memories.”
