Sandra Magsamen Holiday Decor Review & Giveaway

Around Halloween of this year, I received some products from Sandra Magsamen's Halloween line for review and giveaway. That review can be read here.

With the Christmas season in full swing, I was greatly looking forward to the opportunity to do another review and giveaway of Sandra's beautiful products.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Sandra's products, here is a little back story on Sandra and her line of work:

"Sandra Magsamen is a modern day Renaissance woman who has touched millions of people, one heart at a time. Her products have been warmly embraced for 20 years worldwide. As an artist, art therapist, mom, award-winning author of Living Artfully and the creator of the lifestyle brands, Messages from the Heart, Wishes & Kisses, and From the Studio of Sandra Magsamen, Sandra uses her own creativity and spirit to fashion gifts and collections that help people express themselves and connect with others. Sandra reminds and teaches us to explore and experience each day with more heart, meaning, purpose, and joy."

This time around, I received this picture frame for review:

I also received an ornament/wall hanging similar to this one: 

The only difference between the one above and the one I received was that mine said "Our friendship is the greatest gift."

I LOVED these products. It probably helps that I love Christmas. ;-) I love the love of Christmas, the snow, the twinkly lights and the sparkle of the these products fit right in. And I love every excuse to hang another photo or decoration on my walls. ;-)

I immediately went searching for a new photo to put in the frame and get it on my wall for all our friends and family to see as they walked in the door. The final product was this:

I love this frame, and though it is a Christmas product, it's something that can be hung up all year round, because it's "neutral" for all seasons. I love the words around the frame, they really help sum up the meaning of the holidays, and the meaning of our life in general with the love and joy we have with our little family.

For the ornament/wall hanging, I decided to use it as a Christmas present. I love it, it's very cute, and the quote on it fits well for my best friend. I recently re connected with an old friend. We used to be very close several years ago, and then had a ridiculous immature falling out and never spoke or associated until just a couple of months ago. I decided this would be the perfect gift for her, and the quote just fit. Her friendship really is the greatest gift, and I am so thankful for that. She loved it, as well. ;-)

Again, even though it's a Christmas tree ornament, it can simply be hung on the wall anytime of year, and even though the colors are Christmas colors and it's a Christmas theme, it's still something that be used and seen all year round, so it's not something that has to be stuck in a box in the attic until next year. 

I absolutely love Sandra Magsamen products. Just when I think I can't love them anymore than I already do, a new season comes along, and with it, new products that just get better and better. And the quality never fails either. These are high quality products, made with strong yet attractive materials and withstand many years of use. 

BUY IT: You can purchase Sandra Magsamen products at a Walmart near you. All of these products are less than $12.00!

"Good friends are like Christmas, they sparkle, twinkle and glow, they are the greatest gift our hearts will ever known."
