MAKING CHRISTMAS LINK UP [Week 1]

MAKING CHRISTMAS 2013

As you know I am a huge lover of Christmas. To get me in the mood for that holiday I often need some inspiration (and motivation) to get me ready for December 25th! What better way than to have a blog hop about the holidays leading up to and ending with Christmas?  So, yet again, Janine of Rainbow Hare Quilts and I are co-hosting a blog hop Making Christmas.

To join the Making Christmas party, all you need to do is make your list of Christmas To Dos you'd like to accomplish before Christmas.  You can include things that are specifically Christmassy, such as gifts and Christmas decorations, but you can also add in your intended Halloween and Thanksgiving makes and any other handmade projects you want to get finished by December 25th at the very latest!

Our MAKING CHRISTMAS BLOG HOP HOSTS will be posting each week with either a Brainstorming Holiday Themed Post or a Tute for GIFTS, HOME DEC or CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS and every week you can link up with your updated list and your makes from the past week.

October 19th - REBECCA Making Rebecca Lynne

December 21st - To be confirmed

January 11th 2014 - A winner will be randomly selected from the link ups for a small prize, donated by me or maybe a better prize if I can find a sponsor!

How can you get involved in the Hop? 

Your list can be amended as we go, add/subtract things as you re-prioritize.  The main thing is to encourage each other and to have fun! Janine is starting a MAKING CHRISTMAS, 2013 Pinterest board to pin everyone's makes and any tutes you want to link up so if you would prefer not to be pinned, please say so in your post. I'm also hoping to feature some makes from the past week in my post every Saturday so please also mention if you'd rather not be featured :)
