November has got to be one of my favorite months in the entire year. The weather is beautiful. The holidays are on the brink of erupting. My life is filled with many happy milestones, including my oldest daughters upcoming 18th birthday as well as my 20th wedding anniversary.

As we were talking at Kiwi about the joy of thanksgiving we realized that now is the perfect time to show you, our Kiwi Lane Community, thanks by giving away a Kiwi Lane prize package valued at over $50! (Click on the photo above for complete rules and details.)

*note – we love all of our friends around the world and everyone is invited to participate. If our lucky winner happens to be international a $50 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane shop will be issued in lieu of the above shown prize package.

Now you might be wondering how to go about getting your crafty lil’ paws on this delightful goodness. Well it’s pretty simple! All you have to do is follow this link and post a photo or creation of something that you are thankful for and then get your friends and family to vote for your entry.

I know that it’s pretty easy to pick something to share that you are thankful for but the girls at Kiwi wanted to share a little bit of what they are thankful for as well.

Susan Budge created this absolutely heart felt layout expressing her thanks to her parents that contributed greatly to the creative person that she is today.

*Basic Grey Picadilly Paper and Tan Cardstock, Chestnut 1A, Scallop 1A, 2″ Strips, Tags 5, Bracket 3, Tiny Shapes 6T, Tiny Accents 1T

Jennifer Budge couldn’t get any cuter and I can see why she’s absolutely thankful for her family. I bet she’s even pretty thankful to have a sister that can take such amazing photos too!

Jennifer also put her gratitude of family to paper and created this layout which will definitely be a keepsake for years to come.

Design team member Shawna Kunzler shares her gratitude of being crafty with this garland that absolutely makes me smile.

She is also obviously very thankful for Kiwi Lane Designer Templates which make crafting a breeze. Look at these darling projects she created to highlight the month of Thanksgiving.

*check out Shawna’s blog for more details including which designer templates she used for her creations.

Jennifer Nicholes blows my mind with her creativity and created these masterpieces to share with us what she is thankful for.

*Adorn 3A, Tags 7T & 1T, Accents 1T & 2T, Thoughtful 3A, Nature 1T. Patterned papers – My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up collection.

Lastly I want to share this layout that I made of my sweet 15 year old daughter. Every parent on the planet should be blessed to have a child as wonderful as she is. She blesses my life daily and gives me hope in the future of our world.


So don’t be shy everyone! We want to see what you are thankful for. Remember it can be serious or quirky. Whatever it is that makes you smile. You can bet you’ll be seeing a photo of my nail polish collection pop up because as silly as it is I *am* thankful for it and it makes me happy!

Also if you happen to be attending the expo this weekend in Seattle, WA, be sure to stop by our booth and say hi! We’d love to meet our fellow Kiwi fans.

    Kristy Lee!! So excited to see your creativity and beautiful family here at KiwiLane Designs – thanks for the chance to show off my family – they are who I am most thankful for.

    Thank you for posting the response you did. I LOVE my Kiwi’s and my family and friends know that I do. I have to admit that I like to enter the voting contests because it gives me an actual chance to win (I normally don’t ever win anything). So, I love the help I can get to receive free happy mail. I understand the concern of others (that it may not be faire), so I also enter the randomly chosen ones as well. In all fairness, I had entered a ton of those before I finally won one just recently. I praise the Kiwi collection to all of my family friends so it’s nice to earn a little present for myself on occasion.

    Love the products here, but why does it always have to be a popularity contest on these things? Some of us don’t have family or friends that can vote, or even if we do, not nearly enough.

      Jill, thank you for your comment! You actually have perfect timing as the Picture Perfect challenge which launches today will have a randomly chosen winner.

      You’ll find as we slide into the new year that all of our regularly issued weekly challenges will have winner chosen by a random number selection service.

      However, we still have fans that *love* a good contest and the thrill of gathering votes from their friends and family so there will still be contests run in this format from time to time. Hope that helps!
