CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY---Last one until next Year!! (CLOSED)

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I've got my last GIVEAWAY to share with all of you! I've been busy putting together some new designs and some "inspired" designs. I've found some great patterns and have made some cute things to share with you.
I've got a friend who loves to bake. She bakes for family, friends, her small business, and THERAPY! She's not only a good friend but also a great customer! This past summer she was talking about all of the baking she'd been doing and it inspired me to create something. I LOVE can find a few on my Etsy so, with one in mind, I created this one!
 I usually join my Garlands together with black wire but thought it much more appropriate to use Baker's Twine with this one! The candy ornaments are from the Dollar Tree! I promise I painted the other ones!
Nancy Girl, you've got one coming to your home! I can't be inspired by someone and NOT send them one now can I?!!!  Don't forget to ALSO sign up for the Giveaway, too! Come and visit Nancy on her 'SUPERMOM' blog! She's so 'no nonsense' and funny in a sarcastic kind of way. My kinda Gal!
You can also choose to have a Garland in this Giveaway (all of the cookies are decorated differently on each Garland so no one is exactly the same) or browse through the rest of these pictures and tell me which one you'd like to have in a comment. You'll see the rules at the end!!

My newest design made from a cedar fence board. I didn't even bother sanding this as I LOVE the texture!
Snowman Make-Do: about 15 1/2" tall and sits on an old vintage spool that's been painted black.
Lil' Johnny Jingle! Since he's just starting out in Santa's workshop, his hat's a bit too big for his little elf self !
My 14" Santa Doll from a pattern of Sandy's at The Olde Country Cupboard.
Another pattern from Sandy. Large Santa Make-Do (about 19" tall on a beehive spindle)
Oh, my little man is simply adorable! He's only 5 1/2" tall and he'll come with a couple of 'extra' ornaments for your tree!
My "Be Merry" blocks cut from 1.5 pine. The vinyl is Dk Green.
Well, did you find something you'd like to have?
I sure hope so!
Here are the rules!
For 2 chances:
1. Be a follower. New followers are welcome!
2. Tell me what you'd like in a comment.
You can stop there or for 
2 more chances: 
3 and 4. Place this on your blog's sidebar, FB, or Tweet it.
That's it!
I'm going to choose 2 winners!
I'll run this until DEC. 5th.
Come back that Monday morning and I'll tell you who my winners are!
Don't forget that I'm offering 15% in my Etsy store right now until Tuesday the 29th. Look at my right side bar for my Etsy mini. Look for more participating stored in my post below. ALSO, don't forget the PAFA Giveaway found on my right side bar, too!
As always, I appreciate your support!
HUGS to you all!
