A Sneak Peak~

Dearest Readers,

I am seriously getting into the cheer of the holiday season! Can you not believe that Thanksgiving is in a week's time? Goodness! I cannot wait to take a relaxing trip with my parents to the seaside for one of the homiest times of the year!

A young lady commented on my blog saying if I could post a sneak peek of my event! So here it goes:

Each week for a six-week time period (November 26 ~ Christmas Eve!) I will be posting a MAIN post that include heartwarming stories and poems, video tutorials, project ideas, and links to great tutorials. Here are some of the main posts:

Of Knitting
Of Crocheting and Yarn
Of Paper
Of Sewing and Fabric

During the week, for everyday I will be posting links to some great blog tutorials for gifts for friends and family.

Each week I will also be hosting a giveaway for anyone to join whether joining my event or not (with the exception of the homemade giveaways. Unfortunately, I will not be able to send the prizes internationally, but the sponsored ones [with the exception of one], I think will be alright.) The weekly giveaways will in turn be connected to the main post. For example, Of Knitting I will be giving away a knitted project! (Can't exactly tell you what it is, though;)

Your Job will be to post your project ideas, tutorials, and or video tutorials at the end of each main WEEKLY post, so that other girls will see your projects and get ideas for their handmade Christmas presents. I will be setting up a Linky tool for you to do so.

You may also include in your post your holiday traditions (videos would be awesome!!!) and your decorations as well!:)

Oh, and one more thing:
This is a handmade Christmas!!!

The first post, I am trying to film a video of introduction but in it I will be saying, "Put down that shopping list and instead add ribbon, yarn, buttons, and fabric to it! Because let's make this Christmas an Old-Fashion Handmade Christmas."

You may post your ideas consisting of handmade paper crafts, handmade (or sewing machine) sewing projects, handmade knitting projects, but under no circumstances STORE-BOUGHT gifts!!!:)

So are you ready? Are you excited, because I am REALLY excited!!!

~Buttons for spreading the news are coming soon~

Hope all of you are having a charming evening! If you have any questions, do ask!

Love always,

P.S. During this month, it has been really busy; therefore, I will not be posting my monthly interviews until and unless things settle down. My grandfather is in really bad condition right now, school has been keeping me preoccupied, and so on. Therefore, monthly interviews will probably not be running until January of 2011!:)

P.S.S. My daddy is sick as well, with the flu, and really needs prayer (and also prayer for protection for us)! Your prayers for a quick recovery will be much appreciated! Thank you!
