Abi-Gibbys 4th Christmas Sweepstakes CLOSED

So as the secret santa exchange has gone up I think I'll go and out this one up aswell. Most of you know that this sweeps was inspired by Plum-crazys Halloween sweepstakes. So here is round 4 of my Christmas Sweepstakes

Here’s a few "rules"....

Entrants must PM me their address by 1st November ...if I don’t get your address you can’t go in the draw you'll be put down as a send only .... DONT TELL THE WINNER THEY HAVE WON ITS A SUPRISE

In true sweepstake tradition there will also be a decoy(s) so the winner(s) won’t know they have won. PLEASE don’t post any comments re the winners or PM them as it’s meant to be a surprise.

All entrants must agree to send a book and a themed gift to arrive as near as Christmas as possible.
Please note: THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL DRAW so be prepared to mail anywhere.

You don’t have to send a christmas book but there MUST be a connection to Christmas (however loose!) in either the title or the cover picture.... Wooly socks, log burner, Christmas spices, snow, holly Ivey etc etc...let your imagination run riot & surprise the lucky winner!


The winner must agree to journal all books and TELL US WHAT YOU RECIVED here in the forums (Last years winner didn't do this) & don’t worry you won't have to organise another sweepstake

Count me in. I've been meaning to go and check the local Goodwill for books so I'm sure I'll find something. :)

Edit: Sorry, I signed the PM with a very Finnish friendly greet "terkuin" as the TV caught my attention. It could be translated as something close to "greets". :D :D

I received a huge package today, thank you so much! There was so many things inside it took me a while to go through them. The Advent Calendar card is really beautiful.

The book was the first item I took out, it was "The Great Christmas Knit Off" by Alexandra Brown ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13206017 ). And it's perfect as I love knitting! :) There was also very nice looking white chocolate block, marzipan and Christmassy napkins.

Last two items took me a while as I know some German but it's a bit... rusty. The apple & green tea facial mask was easy, but Winterbad needed some translating. But it's cinnamon, clove and orange scented bath bubble.

Thank you! Wishing you Happy Holidays too!

Now I wonder... I received a package from Palwasha today, thank you so much. Inside there was a book from my wishlist, "Harvesting the Heart" by Jodi Picoult ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14796074 ). There was also a packet of two ballpoint pens and pagemarkes, which will be very handy as I'm currently on a study leave for my social studies. :)

Happy Holiday Season Palwasha!

I guess I'll have to believe it now, I think I might be the winner of this sweeps. Which was quite a thing as I have the worst luck in raffles. :D Thank you so much!

Today I received a package from Abi-Gibby. We had this sort of Christmas party / well-being event and I went to post office to get the package before it, so I opened it in front of my very interested colleagues. Had to explain a bit... :D

The book I received was The Last of the Spirits by Chris Priestley ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14770985 ), which was interesting as I've seen Christmas Carol as a movie. There was also little elf I'm sure was sent to watch I'll behave and some very needed BC labels. Thank you so much!

Wish you joyful Christmas Abi-Gibby!
