  115. Fabulous giveaway! I would love to win because I’m such a girl-girl. When money is tight like it is now these are the types of things you wosh you could buy cuz you love em, but they’re a bit frivolous. So what better way than through a giveaway?

  116. I have been following Craft Hope for a while now and just found out about your giveaway! Their book is still on my wish list. :-)

  117. Thanks for supporting craftspeople and small businesses! These are beautiful items, and I would be delighted to be the lucky winner so I could share some with family and friends. The “Craft Hope” book is a special bonus – it’s been on my wish list for months! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  119. Love the quality and retro feel to this group of gifts…keeping some of these for myself!

  120. I have been making things since I was a child. My darling grandma taught me to knit , crochet, tat, quill, quilt, make lace, and bake wonderful pastries and cookies. My wonderful mom taught me to cook, sew, paint and encouraged my love of all crafts. By the time I was 11, I was designing and sewing my own clothes. All my nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews have all gotten crocheted afghans at least once.
    I am now taking care of my 78 year old mom who has Alzheimers Disease and receiving this craft gift set would mean so much to me, as money is tight and mom and I still share a love of doing things together. Thanks.

  121. I would be interested in winning any of the gift sets because the holiday season is for giving, and because of limited money supply, it makes it difficult to get as much as I’d like for the people I really care about, because there are so many of them (and that’s even just counting family!). If I won any of the gift sets it would give me the opportunity to give more, and that would make my holiday season that much brighter. :)

  122. I’m in love with the stained glass stars and crane necklace, but am too cheap to buy them for myself,…I’m keeping my fingers crossed so that maybe I will be the winner of this ensemble of products!!!

  123. As a mom of 4 it would be a huge blessing to me to win! Thank you!

  124. I’m more crafty during the Christmas season.

  134. What a great way to be able to gift everyone on my list!! I always feel sad that I can’t give more to friends, neighbors, you know, the people we come in contact with daily who enrich our lives and yet, we do so little to thank them. It’d be neat to be able to give a little something to those folks!!

  135. thanks for the great gift ideas

  145. Winning these items would certainly help with the lack of Christmas budget we have this year. I love crafting.

  155. This was a fun collection to look at! I’ve been swamped with grad school (and working full time) for the last two years. I’ll be done in December and am looking forward to being more “crafty” when I’m done. I’m also not able to even THINK about Christmas gifts until I’m done, so having some great things like these come into my life in a few weeks would be spectacular!

  157. What an awesome assortment of crafty gifts! I would be proud to find just the right recipient for each of them, if I would have the chance! I know a few persons who deeply deserve a special gift but are not likely to receive much this year. I have little myself, but really enjoy giving gifts to those who need and deserve them more than me!

  158. I love everything in this give away and know so many friends and family I could give them to as gifts.

  159. OMG! What unique and different gift ideas. As I scrolled through them, I could think of someone for each. Awesome!!

  160. What unique gifts! This would take care of everyone on my list!

  161. I am a stay at home mother of 2 girls. Our oldest is special needs which prevents us from leaving the house unless to dr appt’s.

  175. Thanks for sponsoring.

  176. It’s been a long, exhausting year, with the death of a dear family friend in July and the loss of my dad and my husband’s uncle within three days of each other. (This on top of a continued battle with infertility and my husband’s ongoing search for a job where he can actually use his training and earn a steady income.) I’ve found myself in the unexpected position of being the emotional support for both my mom and my brother. So, dad gum it…it might be selfish, but I could do with a bit of spoiling!

  184. My oldest daughter would love these wonderful gifts. I taught her to sew and she is getting very creative in the house since times have gotten tough. We only have the basics to work with and some of these special items would let us do so many more things. Be my Santa this year with a gift to her. Thank you.

  185. Wow! These gifts are great. My mom and I craft all the time and these would be great for both of us. We don’t have money this year to get each other gifts, only handmade items, so this would be a God send.

  221. I love to craft things. People have such warm smiles when they receive a handmade gift. I love making people happy.

  222. I recently retired and finally have the time to be crafty. I may never become an expert at any one craft but I am enjoying trying new crafts. This year I am making all of our Christmas cards by hand and it is so much fun. I try to include my grandchildren in as much crafting as I can.

  223. I would love to win one or some of these holiday gifts because I am a current advertising student and have zero income. Unfortunately I cannot afford to buy my family or girlfriend gifts. Although they have told me time and time again that they do not expect a thing from me, I always want to give. So I would give these presents to my family, girlfriend, and friends!

  224. I would love to win this giveaway because I love pretty, fun things! And, that robe would make a lovely gift =)

  225. I would love to have this for my family!

  226. My favorite thing to do is take a Saturday afternoon/evening and do crafty projects. I love baking and coming up with new fun ideas to try. This weekend I’m going to make some holiday candy chocolate molds! I’ve never done it and am excited to see how it goes!

  227. Who doesn’t like to win especially when the prizes are this much fun.

  228. I can’t even begin to choose my favorite item in this list. I’d love them all!

  232. I would love to win this package for my daughter. She recently has discovered that she is good at crafting and would appreciate this very much.

  233. I often have a crafts party for friends this time of year. We decorate picture frames and mugs and make ornaments and jewelry. This set would be perfect for prizes and gift bags(I’m keeping the robe for me though)!

  234. As a Girl Scout leader we make craft all year and love all things crafty. I would love to share these with my girls.

  262. This would be a wonderful way to end the year with the grandkids – crafts galore!

  264. This is a very generous giveaway, especially for all the creative minds that read LHJ. Happy holidays to all!

  265. Being unemployed unfortunately requires being a little crafty this holiday season with gift giing. I am so stressed trying to figure out what I can give to my daughters and sister and mom and certainly will not be recieving this year.
    In a perfect world I would love to craft a job offer in the email box or a vehicle but anything to add holiday cheer would be a blessing.

  267. All of these gifts look great! I think it would inspire just about anyone to try and be a little crafty with all of these gifts.

  268. I like new ideas but generally don’t have time. It would be great to get these

  277. I would love to win these gifts because they are absolutely amazing, I’ve never won anything and it would be a fantastic way to start the new year!

  278. I would like to enter on behalf of my friend Sena. She has been so incredibly wonderful and supportive to me in recent weeks, I do not know what I would have done without her. I do believe she deserves a special christmas treat, and would be delighted for her to receive this gift.
