And Now For The SURPRISE … All Will Be Revealed By The End Of This Post
I love to give gifts, taking the time to select the perfect present for a dear friend. So this Christmas (or Hanukah) would you like to wake up, clap your hands excitedly as you reach amongst the presents for a Christmas Surprise with YOUR name on it? Okay, then leave it up to Me!
No anticipation of a pair of socks, talcum powder gift set, kitchen electrical appliance or “sensible” combined couple present.
This special gift may be from someone you love, but you know the contents were chosen by a woman, who like you, has a passion for all things quilting, fabric and just stuff we gals really want to play, touch, smell and fondle.
No stress is involved by you, your family or friends, no queues to stand in, no possibility of finding that not so well hidden gift (yet another surprise spoilt).
Or why not just give yourself a gift, you deserve it – BUT you won’t know what’s inside!
The Christmas Surprise contents are a secret, they are based on a love of all things sewing and homey. Remember when you were a kid and you hoped that amongst the clothes and books you’d have some “play things” well, we’ll definitely transport you back in time.
There are 3 different packages available to choose from (maybe 2 lovely people need to give you gifts).
Option 1: The package is sent to you for placement under your tree from whomever you choose to add to the beautifully handwritten card.
Option 2: You can order a gift package to be sent to a friend or relative, your name (and any special message you wish to include) will be on the handwritten card.
Option 3: If you or someone you love celebrates Hanukah, we can arrange a special package to be sent earlier, inside there will be 8 individually wrapped gifts.
You decide the cost of the Christmas Surprise.
The first is priced at A$50, the second at A$75, and the Hanukah option is priced at A$100 plus the appropriate cost of packaging and post to anywhere in this wonderful world. However the retail value of each package will be significantly greater, as we are able to order from our wholesale suppliers.
SPECIAL EXTRA: If you would like a surprise under the Christmas tree this year, email us directly in your own words what you would like to do, and we’ll treat each request on an individual basis. If you have any friends who you think might enjoy this offer too, link them to this posting. Quite a few of you have your own blogs or web pages, so here’s a special treat. If you place an order for a Christmas Surprise and then mention this on your blog, and another person signs up from your referral, we will give you a A$5 gift credit off your own purchase for EVERY referral made in your name.
AND THE BEST BIT: To spread the goodwill across the globe, money raised from the purchase of Christmas Surprises will be used to purchase much needed supplies for villages throughout countries in need via the wonderful work of Oxfam. This is something I have always wanted to do, a little can make such a difference in the lives of so many.
All orders must be in by Wednesday 31 October 2007, so Santa’s Elves have plenty of time to get all the packages together in time. HO HO HO
The surprises have been sourced from a wide selection of reputable Elf Establishments, not regularly available Wildcraft Farm products.
The Elves will wrap all packages and have them to the early bird Santa Sleigh (Australia Postal Service) by 1 December.
SO WHAT TO DO NOW? Just hit the email button and in your own words tell me what you wish to do. Payments are not required until November.
LET’S NOT FORGET: It is no coincidence that today is the 5th anniversary of the horrific Bali Bombings. Many precious lives were lost forever and many heroes came forward that day to help strangers from many different countries.
I worked with Amber O’Donnell in my families printing business. She was just a young girl, on a holiday with her cousin, and then her life was tragically cut short. Many different organizations, as well as strangers helped her family and friends try to locate her after the bombs went off. Oxfam and other charity organisations have helped the Balinese and also the Tsunami victims to get their lives back on track … by choosing to have some excitement on Christmas Morning (or 8 days of Hanukah) I hope we can make some difference in this world – NO! I know we can.
And now, drum roll please dadadadadada ……
