$40 Giveaway from Armadillo Dreams - The Magic Onions

$40 Giveaway from Armadillo Dreams

This generous Giveaway has been won by Cynthia (Deep In The Woods). Cynthia said “Interestingly we were talking about Armadillo dreams in Sprouts, our parent/child waldorf class. One of the other mamas was telling us about the beautiful fairies she had bought. I have been showing people all week the shop, most of us are trying to do homemade/handmade holidays this year!

Magic Sponsors, Dustin and Amanda (and their sweet family), offer today’s generous Giveaway.

As you know, I choose my sponsors very carefully to fit in with what we believe here at The Magic Onions. We believe wholeheartedly in supporting the handmade movement and small family businesses. I love knowing that my hard earned money is buying something that has been lovingly made by someone just like me and going to support a family just like mine. Plus, I find that handmade treasures are much more beautiful than their mass produced counterparts. Please consider giving a handmade treasure from Armadillo Dreams to your little love this Christmas.

But, before we get to the Giveaway part, Dustin has given us a little insight into some favorite Christmas tradition for their family.

Dustin writes…

We live in Central Oregon at 3,000 ft. elevation and are fortunate to have a beautiful landscape all around us. Winter here sometimes looks like something out of a story we read to our kids. You can really see each season in a very dramatic way here! This time of year it’s common to have days where the temperature never gets above freezing and sub zero nights. To the west of us we have the snow covered Cascade Mountains that bring in skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. We also have the Deschutes National Forest with huge snow covered ponderosa pine trees. It’s very picturesque and inspiring! We thought it would be fun to share two of our personal favorite things about the season.

One of our favorite winter family activities is to go out in the forest up near the mountains and cut down a Christmas tree. Wandering around in the forest until we find that perfect tree is just so much fun, especially if it’s on a day when it’s snowing a little bit. Once we find the right one and cut it down we head back to the car. Once back at the car, we bring out a little camp stove that we brought along to warm up some water for hot cocoa to enjoy with a lunch that we packed from home. The trees we bring home don’t have as tightly spaces branches as the ones you can buy at a tree lot and often end up looking a little like the Christmas tree on “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. They smell so much fresher in our home though and we all enjoy remembering the fun time we had going to get it. Another plus is that you can really see all the ornaments!

Another one of my favorite moments in winter is when I am working in my shop. Sometimes I look up through the window that is above my work bench and see snow coming down. To be working in my shop making toys for kids and watching it snow outside makes me feel like Santa. Cheesy I know, but it’s a feeling that makes me happy.

Donni writes…

Thank you, Dustin. Wow… picking your Christmas tree is a little more organic than picking it from the hundred’s leaning up against the fence in the empty parking lot like we do here in the big city… I like your way much better!

 And, in a way, you ARE Santa :-)
