Free stuff and Homemade with Love

FREE STUFF announcement towards bottom of post.

Coming to you on November 12, 2007 ... my annual Homemade With Love -- Holiday Gift Exchange!

Mark you calendars, and plan on participating!

Here's what you need to do:

1) Flip through your memory banks and come up with your favorite homemade gift that someone would enjoy receiving at Christmas time. It can be a main Christmas gift, it can be a hostess' gift, it can be a gift for your neighbors.

2) Make one as a sample and take a good picture of it to post on your blog.

3) Type up your instructions in a post, along with the picture, that will be posted on November 12. Come back to my blog that morning and sign up on the Mr. Linky with the link to your post.

4) Don't forget to grab the button and start advertising on your blog! Please link them back to this post!


Each person that participates and signs up on the Mr. Linky will be eligible for a drawing of at least four (4) wonderful, "Homemade with Love" items that I will be showcasing ... possibly even more! I will take each name on the Mr. Linky with a valid Homemade with Love post, and I will enter them in a drawing -- one prize per winner -- winners will be drawn by a random generating number thingie. (Well -- that sure made more sense in my head!!!) I hope YOU win! And, you... over there. And you, too ... there ... in the corner. Don't YOU want to win?

Ideas for Homemade gifts:

Something you knit, crochet, embroider, or sew
Something you bake
Something you paint
Something you glue together
Items you pull together for a basket gift (homemade in "nature")
Something you grow (plant, flower, herb, etc.)

Hi GiBee, You asked about my wreath header. I sort of added to an already made wreath. Why reinvent the wheel so to speak? I just added ivy for the summer, and too lazy to take the ivy off, I put a stick of fallish looking stuff on there with a ribbon.

Woo Hoo! Aren't I handy????

I promise you I can do better than that on your Homemade Holiday invitation.
