Calling all Crafters October 7, 2009 by Edie Wadsworth 36 Comments Steve’s parents left yesterday and it was a whirlwind of fun; cooking, baking, knitting, and enjoying family time. I was thrilled to learn to do cables and LOVE this yummy tiffany blue yarn. Which brings me to the point of this post. What if we all made an effort toward a more handmade Christmas. Less stuff, more meaningful. Not that we could go ‘cold turkey’ because last time I checked, noone was making handmade legos. But you know what I mean. A little less Walmart, a little more from the heart. So, to support and encourage us in our quest for more meaningful gifts, I plan to host 12 days of Handmade Christmas-Tutorials beginning November 1 through November 12 here on my little old blog with guest posters for 12 days straight. Sounds like so much fun to me!! I have been asking some really awesome bloggers/crafters to join me but I have some slots left so if you want to show us how to make some Christmas-y craft/food/gift/etc then let me know all about your ideas. Or if you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who’s really cool and crafty then by all means tell a sista. Y’all may be so good that it turns in 28 days of Handmade Christmas Tutorials! And why in November? Because I don’t know about you, but I only have two hands. And I’m working on some giveaways for that week too. And I’m making wassail And singing carols And in general annoying all the people who hate the mention of Christmas before Thanksgiving. Let’s change things up a bit. How ’bout it?
