Have I got a Black Friday deal for You, my Friends With Flair Peeps!
Here we are, officially launched into the Christmas shopping season. I hope my American friends had a blessed and relaxed Thanksgiving. You will find my no where NEAR a store today. No way, no how. I will not get in that mess. I don't like crowds. I'll hide in my craft room, thank you very much!
My husband's family has the tradition of exchanging a small Christmas decoration for the tree or home at Thanksgiving each year. I try to make mine homemade. I've done a variety of things through the years -- cross stitch, Hardanger, basket weaving. This is what I made for my sister-in-law this year:
I used a Unity Stamp of the Week (Holiday Joy Christmas Tree) and colored it with Copic Markers. I mounted it to a coaster that I covered with a piece of DP from Kaisercraft. The 1.5 inch striped grosgrain ribbon and the coaster are from the Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions Store.
If you visited my blog last week, I offered a giveaway if I made it to 300 followers. Well, I got VERY, very close, but didn't quite get there. It's bothered me all week that I didn't just have a giveaway anyway. So this weekend, I'm having a giveaway, no matter what. I will draw a name earl next week and announce the winner of the grab bag. If I do happen to get to 300 followers, I'll add LOTS of goodies -- papers, 3 Girl JAM ribbon, Close To My Heart stamps, embellishments -- lots of fun stuff that I've been buying and saving for my 300 follower giveaway. To be eligible, please follow my blog, leave a way to contact you, and comment on this post.
There's lots of inspiration on all The Unity Friends With Flair blogs. I'm off to spend time being inspired. Have a great weekend, everyone! Shop on!
