25 Days of Handmade Christmas: Day 1

Procrastination should be my middle name. Here it is, December 1st, and I am just now considering a 25 Days of Christmas event! Since it's extremely unlikely that I will have the time to execute 25 different DIY projects in the next 25 days, I want to ask for your help! Depending on how many participants I get, I would like to combine a few of my DIY projects with yours. Just shoot me an email with the following info:

1. Information about you, your blog, and your favorite thing about Christmas!
2. Pictures of your project.
3. Step-by-step instructions.
4. Materials list.

The easiest way to do this would be to construct it as though you are posting on your own blog (if you haven't already). Then copy and paste the html into a text file and email. Allison from Crafted Love does an awesome tutorial of how to do this. It can be found here. Send the email to and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I will be adding about 5 projects of my own so the first 20 or so to email me will have the best shot.

So far I have the following projects:
1. Sock snowmen (I'm incredibly excited about this tutorial from Life in the Making!)
2. Jute wrapped Christmas trees
3. Repurposing old Christmas light bulbs
4. Christmas letters
5. Christmas lyrics paintings
If you plan to participate or want to share with others, grab a button!

Thanks so much and I can't wait to work with all of you!

    I love the idea of 25 handmade days of Christmas. Got to see what I can add!

  2. I'd love to be a part of this but the button doesn't show up as 25 days- it shows up as embracing messy. Am I copying it wrong?


I love your comments and take time to read every single one of them! Make sure you're not a no-reply so that I can respond to you. Thanks so much!
