A Gratitude Filled Giveaway

The time has come for a little ‘thank you’ giveaway for all the comments, likes, follows and feedback on over 500 posts! πŸ’•


So, to the important bit, what’s in it for you?



Well, some just sweet enough, slightly crunchy but still chewy, waffle like cookies, held together with a caramely syrup, kindly supplied by Double Dutch Cookies 🀀


(Extra scrumptious when paired with coffee I might add πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β˜•οΈ)



A small, hand lettered piece by me, though I have no picture to lure you with, because I am waiting to create it until I know who the winner is πŸ˜‰


Annnd a $25.00 gift card to use over at Maple Jane Design!!




A local maker of many lovely knitted and crocheted things, my personal favourites being her toques πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»



This giveaway is going to be a little different from the last couple I’ve held.

To enter, you will have to COMMENT ON THE BLOG, something you have learnt about me, during your time following along.

After over 500 posts, I would think that shouldn’t be too difficult πŸ˜‰

It can be one word or multiple sentences, there is no right of wrong observation. 

(If you’re new to Jemstory and don’t feel like you really know much about me, just comment whatever you desire πŸ˜‹)


The first five people to comment, will receive an extra two entires πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸΌ


The winner will be announced on Friday, so get commenting and feel free to tell others about it πŸ“†πŸ˜„πŸ’ŽπŸŽ‰πŸ› πŸ’—πŸ’³πŸ“²

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

  4. I’m not sure if this is a worldwide give away, but anyway, I can still comment! 😏

    I have learned many things about you while reading your blog and talking to you, but one thing I haven’t read in the comments yet, is that you have a great sense of humor. Sarcastic, just the way I like it 😜
