Great Give Away: Creatively Christmas with Jennifer Rizzo

This past Friday night I went to Jennifer Rizzo's Book signing of her Creatively Christmas Book.


Jen is the sweetest and most talented designer and artist, and author.

 Her beautiful book is full of wonderful inspiration.  There are chapters of how to make's and also beautiful blogger and shop owner homes that are decorated for Christmas.

I could not put this book down when I got home and started to read through it.  I have a  signed copy of this wonderful book and also one of the new line of stencils Jen has for this giveaway.  More about this giveaway at the end of the post.
This is the lovely book and one of Jennifer's many wonderful Stencils. 


Jennifer signed a copy for a lucky winner.

Beautiful illustrations of how to makes.  Want to make this pretty Joy Tote.  Instructions included.

How about making some Snowball Jingle Bells.

 How to make a pretty mercury glass candle holder.

This "how to make" caught my eye.  It is grain sack paper chain.  I am thinking of going red and white with my Christmas decor this year so I may have to make this one.

How about making your own personal Cross Stitch Inspired Monogram Mugs.  All here in this great book.  There are so many more How To Makes in this lovely book.

Jen also highlights and features homes of shop owners and bloggers in her book.  This is a peak at Denise's Home decked out in white for Christmas.  Denise has a shop I frequent often called Denise's Adornments.


A lot of you know sweet Jennifer Zuri from Town and Country Living.  Her pretty farm house is decked out and featured in this book too.


Mark the owner of Room 363 beautiful home is also featured.  Love that he uses so many vintage items in his decor.


Sweet Ella Mark's Shop Girl.  Love when I go in the shop and Ella is there to greet you.
She is so full of fun personality.  Look at that face!!!!

Traci from my fave shop Whimsy in Morris has her home featured.  Love her classic and beautiful elegant home decked out for Christmas.

There are many more beautiful homes all decked out for the holidays in this book.



There you have it Jennifer Rizzo's Creatively Christmas Book.  Just a beautiful and inspiring book to have.  

Easy Peasy For A Chance to Win This Beautiful Book And One Of Her Wonderful Stencils.  Just Leave Me A Message In the Comments and Please Be a Follower Of Mine.  Easy and Fun.
