Winners of Baby Safari and Giveaway for Dress Up Fabric

Thank you to everyone who entered the Baby Safari Giveaway! Reading what everyone was doing this holiday season was so inspiring and touched my heart! I had a horrible time deciding, and I implore you to continue to enter the giveaways during this month since I wanted so badly to give every one of you a fat quarter set!

Here are the winners from the blog:

Rosemary says:

This is THE BEST pumpkin pie I’ve ever tasted. It’s the one my family requests to have for Thanksgiving from now on. Happy Baking :) {Pumpkin Praline Pie Recipe in the comments! I might have to give this one a try! Thanks for sharing Rosemary!}

This holiday we are trying to have a homemade Christmas. One of my daughters is helping me make quilts for almost everyone . . . a big project. It is hard to find things to make for men so we are really thinking hard on that one. We have a new baby in the family so I thought your fabrics would be fun to do something with. Have a great holiday and thank you for sharing your creativity with us and all your fun ideas and art work.

That’s a big project April! Men’s fabrics are so DIFFICULT (Believe me as I have been trying to work on a fabric line for “big boys.”) Hopefully, these fabrics help a bit with the “little boys” in your life!

A few years ago we started a new family tradition in the spirit of giving and the holidays that each one of us would do at least 1 good deed and then speak about it during Christmas Dinner…so Im looking forward to the holiday meal and hearing what each has done out of the kindness of their hearts for someone they know or a complete stranger. Turns out my family is very kind, even to strangers :-) I would luv to win these fabrics, Thanks for the chance!

Vanessa, your family tradition melts my heart! Oh, if we all could just be a little kinder during the hoildays (and throughout the year!). What a sweet tradition!

Beautiful – what a nice giveaway!! I would love to give these to my mom since she’s a new quilter and making gorgeous quilts. Hey, that’s a nice Christmas gift! ;).

How sweet are you? I hope you both get to enjoy them!

Winners: Please email me at carina@carinagardner.com with your address and we will have these sent out ASAP!

Thank you again for all of your comments—for sharing how you plan to slow down, your recipes (Meg, I WILL be trying to make that apple crisp!), how you are going to cuddle with the ones you love, travel, and play in the snow! (We are also enjoying the recent downfall here in SLC.)

It was so hard to decide on who to choose for this last giveaway, that the rest of the upcoming freebies will be chosen by the random number generator:). lol. Less pressure on me! Just keep those wonderful, inspiring comments rolling!

This week I’m giving away two FULL sets of Dress Up—yep, that is 11 juicy fat quarter fabrics in each set! This giveaway will end on Friday. (That would be Nov. 25, Black Friday, Sale Day, National Standing-in-Line Day, Left-Over Turkey Day, and any other name you can give it..)

Tell me your favorite Thanksgiving Food in the comments below to be entered!

    Ooooh I love your fabrics! My favorite Thanksgiving food is pumpkin soup! Or really ANYTHING pumpkin… pie, muffins, souffle…. pumpkin is my favorite part of Thanksgiving! 🙂

  2. Lori O.

    My Great Grandma’s stuffing (recipe–so glad she shared it) with fresh, steaming gravy oozing over it. 🙂 …Sampling all of the pies too…yummy!… Wishing you and your family a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Gwen Windham

    My favorite Thanksgiving food is my Mom’s dressing! I love it SO much and have tried to replicate it, but can’t ever get it “just right”… I think it’s because nothing compares to food that is lovingly made for you by your Mom… Thank you for this wonderful giveaway– LOVE it!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!! 🙂

  4. Sarah

    Pumpkin Pie handmade with love 🙂 Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

  5. Kimberlee

    Roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon pecan crunch, a recipe by Mccormick is a holiday staple in our family. The orange & cranberry touches make the house smell heavenly!

  6. Mandi

    I’m looking forward to the stuffing and homemade pies! Yum!

  7. judean

    Pecan pie, all the way!

  8. jen shears

    oooh. that’s a hard decision, as I love all the elements! stuffing that my mom & I make from my nana’s recipe, cranberry sauce with a hint of cinnamon, or possibly sweet potato casserole….mmmm.
    thank you so much for the chance at your beautiful fabric! I would LOVE to play with it!
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    I love all of the Thanksgiving foods but my favorite is my homemade dressing. The only time I make it is at Thanksgiving and all of our family enjoys it very much.
    Love you blog and this fabric would make the cutest quilt. Thanks for giving us the chance to be a winner.

    As I sit here writing up this Thanksgiving’s menu …. As far as I am concerned, the turkey is merely the vehicle for the stuffing (we do a new one every year: this year’s is Buttermilk cornbread stuffing with sausage) and cranberry sauce (this year’s: cranberry and dried cherry sauce) which I will make using my fresh local cranberries from the last of the farm co-op!!
    Happy Thanksgiving and thanks so much for the chance to win!!

    Carina, I just love your designs… and here is my blurb…

    Ok… I received an invitation to enjoy a Christmas (turkey & the works) dinner from a former professor of mine… And why is this special, you ask? He is a bachelor and now five years into retirement. In the ten years I have known him he has opted to “hide out” on Christmas Day… No visiting friends or colleagues. No fancy Christmas dinners. No sharing of the Holiday Spirit in any way. However, this year he’s invited myself and a former colleague to enjoy this special day with him. Moreover, his two guests are both, well what would you say… single & “homeless.” In his gesture, I believe he is embodying the real Spirit of Christmas. I am very much looking forward to sharing the day with him.

    By the way, these give-aways are extremely generous of you… Thanks.

    I love the turkey, but the stuffing is my absolute favorite. I make an old Weight Watchers recipe, with about 1/2 the bread of normal, but mushrooms, green frenchcut green beans, celery and onions replacing the rest. Use sage, black pepper and a bit of sea salt after you saute the veg in a bit of real butter. About 5 slices of bread cubed mix with the sauted veg and seasonings and stuff the bird!! Yumm and a lot less calories.

    Sweet potatoes… mmmmmm. I have the yummiest recipe… tastes more like dessert!

  15. Audrey

    Sausage and apple stuffing!

  16. Amelia

    love the stuffing!!! 🙂
