You probably know this by now, but we love doing giveaways, and what better time do to giveaways than Christmas?!  We will be doing three giveaways this week, and we hope you will get some good last-minute ideas for Christmas gifts, in case you still have some shopping to do.  (You may also want to buy some gifts for yourself ;)



6 Grain Pancake MixStrawberries - Freeze Dried



Today's giveaway comes from Fran from Shelf Reliance.  Fran is offering a #10 can of 6-grain pancake mix and a pouch of dried strawberries! (Now, doesn't that make you hungry?)

How many miles are you traveling for Christmas this year, or are you staying home?


This giveaway closes in just under 24 hours - Wednesday at noon!  About an hour after it closes, a new giveaway will open.  One comment per person, please.


Thanks, Fran, for the giveaway!

We are staying home! We find it is easier to feel and enjoy the spirit of the season when we aren't harried by travel and the dramatic situations that can occur with extended family functions.
