The ‘Send a Little Love’ Giveaway

Lazies, Join me in sending a little love. And I’ll send you a little love in return. Actually, you always have my love, so I’ll send three lucky Lazies a little more. Where are we sending this love? To whom? Why? The answer to all of that is simply…yes. This is a feel-good thingy.

Post a comment and think of it as adding a name, wish or sentiment to Santa’s list this year. Send a little love to whomever or whatever is in your heart. Your comment enters you in the giveaway.

Your Message
What message of love do you want to share?

– Is there someone you’ve been missing, but haven’t reached out? Send a cyber hug.
– Need a little love? Reach out.
– Send positive energy to someone. They may or may not feel it, but I bet you will.
– Make a wish for the coming new year.

I look forward to your beautiful messages of love. Take a minute to read some comments from other Lazies.

My Message
To friends far and near, you are always in my heart. You make everyday better. I love you.

Here is my holiday wish of 4C’s for you:
Create – share your beautiful talent.
Craft – work with your hands and your soul will grow.

    I have a HS friend who is struggling with this Holiday season. Her 26 year old son died suddenly in June, on my friend’s wedding anniversary. Her son was buried 3 days before his wife gave birth to their second son. It’s been a rough season and I hope she can find some joy this Christmas.

    Christmas is my favourite time of holiday season 🙂 This is the time where we want to spend time with our loved ones, near & far! But it’s not always possible, so I would like to send my love to those family members I won’t be able to see or hug! Don’t forget, JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!!

  13. Miss Sherry — December 14, 2016 @ 1:10 pm

    Love and hugs to my quilting pals… they never divulge how much I’ve spent (they always spend more) or eaten (I can hold my own) on our fabric shopping excursions. Love them so much.

  14. Robin F. — December 14, 2016 @ 1:14 pm

    To my knitting friends who inspire me, encourage me, and make me laugh and hug me when I need it.

  15. Helen Murtagh — December 14, 2016 @ 1:17 pm

    Sending love YOUR way. Can’t thank you enough for your marvelous Craftsy classes. I have had a blast making the zippered bags. One thing I did differently for the Bendy bag was this. Took a zipper apart. Then used one colour for half of the zipper (say pink) and another colour for the other half (say blue) and a yellow pull.
    So much fun

  16. Janice Harski — December 14, 2016 @ 1:19 pm

    Enjoy this Christmas season (and year round) with those we love and those who need our love. We all have a special talent whether we know it or not that we need to share with others, whether it is giving, caring, helping or teaching, etc.

  17. Linda Cornwell — December 14, 2016 @ 1:20 pm

    I could use a hug from the man in my life who is far away this Christmas. Partly just because I miss him, and partly because I lost my job of 28 years, 13 days after my 70th birthday.

    I wanted to send love and positive energy to all people that have been forced to leave their countries and flee to Europe from the Middle East. It breaks my heart to read and see all the horrifying pictures of how dictators and crazy fundamentalists kill and put force upon others. May their hearts change …

    Love and a Very Merry Christmas to YOU!

I know she’s suffering in so many ways, from physical to emotional. My prayers are with her and so many others at this special time of year. Blessings.
