Susan’s So Thankful Give-Away #15: The 3-in-1 Color Tool

Today’s give-away is Joen Wolfrom’s spiffy 3-in-1 Color Tool. This is a color-planning tool that helps you choose great combinations – based on the Ives color wheel for accuracy and perfect color matching. There are 24 color cards with hundreds of color swatches, plus two value finders (red and green) that help you determine value and contrast. 
My friend Nancy G. Cook reviewed The 3-in-1 Color Tool on her blog if you want to know more about it.
Joen now has a new version of this tool called the Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool (Updated 3rd edition), so you get some idea of how wonderful – and popular – this tool is.

Here’s your chance to win! Leave a comment after this post and tell me your favorite thing to bake for the holidays. I’ll pull a name at random at 9 p.m. on Monday Dec. 12, and send you this tool. AND THE WINNER IS: Linda Moran!

  12. For years my favorite recipe to make at Christmas time was Stollen which we would have on Christmas morning with hot chocolate. Now the only thing I make is pumpkin squares. Having pumpkin pie at Christmas is traditional in our house and making the pumpkin in squares means I don't even have to make pie crust.

  18. On Christmas Eve I make a Swedish yeast bread with an almond paste filling. It is divine! I always make at least 3 or 4 small ones to distribute to neighbors for enjoying on Christmas morning. As a quilter and artist "The 3 in 1 color tool" would be an amazing aide to my creative endeavors.

  21. My favorite thing to bake is apple pie, but I rarely get to do that. I challenge myself each year, however, to try another fruitcake recipe. I WILL find an excellent fruitcake recipe that uses mincemeat.

  22. Wonderful! Thank you for the opportunity. I always make raspberry coconut bars at Christmas (and only at Christmas, because they are impossible to resist!).

  37. I actually have several things. But it wouldn't be Christmas without two family traditions. Vanocka is a Czech Christmas bread that came from my dad's side. And Date Nut bread came from my mom's side. I get in trouble if I don't make enough of these breads for the entire family!

  44. I really, really need this tool! I wish I could see colors like you do. I just love your work. I started experimenting with art quilts a year ago. So little time. So much to learn!

  45. We have a treat we call 'crack' corn that we only make during the holidays. It is basically caramel corn but it is so good, you cannot stop eating it. I like to add pecans to some batches and sometimes I add cayenne pepper (just a tiny bit) to add a little warmth. Most people don't know what the 'extra' ingredient is but they always ask for our caramel as a Christmas gift.

    ReplyDelete
  46. My great grandma's cornflake cookies or my best freind's fudge...or both!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I HAVE to make the traditional Christmas Fruit Mince with suet and alchohol recipe every year. It goes into the fridge to mature for 12 months. I make the mince pies with last years mixture!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would say pecan pie and fudge--yum-

  49. Dark chocolate Ginger cookies, look foreward to them every year!
