This giveaway is now closed.
I'm so excited! This month it is my turn to host. . .
In case you don't remember from last month, I'm working with a group of amazingly talented bloggers on a collaboration project. Every month we pick a theme, then all week long we each share a tutorial revolving around the them. And if that isn't enough for ya, we also do a huge giveaway every month. Cool, right?
Let's get this party started. This month our theme is "Handmade for the Holidays". Everybody likes getting handmade gifts, and with Christmas right around the corner, we thought we'd give you an early start. For those of you who like to procrastinate, fill free to pin the tutorials and save them till the week of December 20th.
Here's a little preview of the projects we have lined up this week:
So if you're looking for some great gift ideas (or some fun things to make for yourself), join us every day this week for a fun new gift idea. Here is the schedule for the week:
Tuesday– Monogram Necklaces from Tam at Sew Dang Cute Crafts
Wednesday– Gift Wrap Goodies from Kristyn at Lil' Luna
Thursday– Custom Wooden Blocks from Amanda at Every Creative Endeavor
Friday– Etched Hot Cocoa Jar from Alison at Oopsey Daisy
Saturday– Milk Glass Candy Dish from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous
Sunday– Kitchen Towel Clips from ME!
And now for the exciting part. The part where you can win FREE stuff! Woot Woot! Who's excited? I had so many generous sponsors that I broke the freebies into 2 packages. So TWO of you are going to win some fabulous stuff!
Prize Package #1
$25 shop credit at Key Lime Digital Designs, perfect for you blogger that want to spruce up your blog. Kendra has mad design skills!
A wooden JOY decoration, and TWO reindeer blockheads from Well Good Crafts. Usually Wendy just sells the craft kits, but for this giveaway she is completing the projects for you. Score!
From Fizzypops, a Bottle Cap Necklace Kit. You will receive supplies to make 10 bottle cap necklaces. All you have to add is photos or paper for the centers. How fun is that?! You get to craft, and you have 10 Christmas gifts that you can cross off your list.
And last but not least, a $50 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl. Unless you've been living in a cave, you've probably heard of them. Beautiful hand-stamped jewelry! Here are a few of my favs:
Prize Package #2
A beautiful button necklace AND fabric flower brooch from Johnny in a Dress. You could give one away, and keep one for yourself. I won't tell anyone.
A beautiful set of wooden blocks from JN Designs. They read "Joy to the World." I love how the red block looks like a present. This would look fabulous on a shelf or mantle!
For all you sewers out there, you are gonna love this one! Whimsey Couture is giving away 3 pattern e-books of your choice. I seriously don't know how you are going to choose, because every single pattern in their shop is stinkin' adorable!
And last but not least, a $50 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl. Yep, that's right, both winners get to pick some amazing jewelry. I've got a VP necklace, and I just love it!
