Sweet Tidings Sponsor Giveaway from Cozy Memories





This week's sponsor giveaway is from ETSY shop Cozy Memories run by the charming and effervescent Sonia of Cozy Homemaking blog. Sonia runs her sweet little craft atelier in Montpellier, France where is a devoted wife and a creative and inspiring mom to two little boys. In between the cooking, baking and daily domestic rituals, Sonia carves a special time for herself to craft for family, friends and for her ETSY shop. Sonia narrates how her shop came to being:

The shop opened its door in January 2008 and at that time, I was making and selling felt food or other items made with felt. Then I started sewing a bit, especially when I bought a new machine in February 2009. I discovered the pleasure and joy of free-hand embroidery in the autumn of 2008 and I made one of my favorite embroidery projects, an embroidered cushion cover.
On the shelves of Cozy Memories shop, you will find a lovely collection of gifts and treasures made with Sonia's love, care and attention. There are fragrant lavender filled strawberry sachets the lavender of which is handpicked and dried by Sonia herself. For those who love making kitchen gifts, the shop offers special French country handmade jam and honey jar covers. Meanwhile, crafters would adore Sonia's beautiful French pincushions made of natural linen, Liberty of London fabrics, crocheted trims and vintage buttons. Sonia also regularly re-stocks her shop with other handmade lovelies such as embellished Moleskine cahier journals, linen bookmarks, wrist cuffs and door hangers. After the holiday season, the shop will resume accepting custom orders.





For the holiday season, the shop offers limited edition Christmas items such as Hand Embroidered Spice Biscuit Garlands and felt gingerbread biscuit ornaments.

  7. I just love the welcome to my craft corner wall hanging and have been eyeing it up for a while.

    I love sonia's things . . she does such fine work. She kindly custom made a cuff for my daughter when I missed out on one she had listed in her shop. It arrived all neatly wrapped so I haven't seen it yet . . can't wait for Christmas morning (or maybe it can be an advent gift since i don't think I can wait that long!)

    Thanks for the chance to win!
