Join Robin and Me in the Great 2010 Stocking Giveaway

big button

The minute I heard about the 2010 Stocking Giveaway over at RSISLAND CRAFTS I wrote Robin and told her to sign me up as a participant!

What could be more fun than filling a stocking with goodies and holding a giveaway? Filling a stocking with goodies and holding a giveaway along with a bunch of other bloggers all at the same time - that's what!

This is not a swap - it is a giveaway and it doesn't begin until December 1st. which is plenty of time to make or pick up a stocking and fill it with goodies so you can post it on your own blog.

I hope some of you will join us! Actually, I hope many of you will join us! All you have to do is read the details here and send Robin a note and let her know you are in! Or simply add a comment at the bottom of the post letting her know you are joining us.

On December 1st. she will install a Mr. Linky so that all the participating blogs will be linked and anyone who wishes can make the rounds and put their name in the hat!

I have already started making a couple ornaments for my stocking! I just think this is such a fun idea.

Robin and I are shipping international - I don't know about the other participants. But if you live outside the USA and don't mind shipping international, won't you join in also? Stockings - as long as they are not filled with coal, can be quite light weight and easy to ship! Think about it! Write Robin! Say YES!

Now - I am headed back to ornament making!

I have had so much fun making these little woven paper tree ornaments that I have created a PDF tutorial. The tutorial is available free to any one who orders one of the e-books listed in the Craftypod Store here and here before December 31.

Make a Gingerbread House Advent Calendar


You guys already know I am into Advent calendars big time! And you also know that I can't get through the holidays without making at least one gingerbread house!

This year I invited Diane over for a day to help me make a Gingerbread House Advent Calendar - a wild idea I got into my head last January and have been very excited to make ever since. And with a few tricks - easier than you think!

Make a Beautiful Mini Quilt - by Christmas!


Here is a really easy gift idea! Make a beautiful handmade mini quilt using a "cheater quilt" design fabric from Spoonflower!

Do what I did! Make a cup of hot cocoa and then browse the 500+ pages of fabric designs on Spoonflower! (Actually I found plenty of appealing choices within the first 12 pages.) Picking your favorites will likely be the hardest part of making your mini quilt gifts!
