Just Something I Whipped Up

I’ve been kind of thinking a lot about Christmas already. Somehow I get the feeling I’m not alone. 🙂 I have some ideas brewing and I wanted to throw them out there.

First, I’m thinking of putting together a Christmas Gift Giving Directory. Basically, if you have a business and you are running holiday sales I want to add you to our Gift Giving Directory. Basically you would email me a link to your website/esty shop, info on the sale you are running or a discount code you are offering and I would create a directory. If this is somthing you would be interested in, leave a comment and let me know. If I don’t get a good response, I will probably scrap the idea.

Second, last year I hosted our first Creating Christmas Blog Fest. It lasted for 5 days and each day we had a themed linky party from Creative Gift Wrapping Ideas, to Christmas Recipes to Family Traditions. I would like to do some form of this again, including getting other blogs involved so if THIS is something you think would be good, leave a comment and let me know.

Have you taken advantage of the FREE photo canvas yet?? “Everybody’s doin it” and they make great Christmas gifts. 🙂 Click HERE to get started.

  • Add a link to a specific post not your blog homepage.
  • Can be anything you’ve been working on from recipes, to sewing, to mod podge, to a before and after, to a room re-do, to………..well you get the idea. 🙂
  • It would be really cool if you could grab a button and add it to your blog somewhere, I’m not picky.

  5. The secret to sewing on stretch fabric with a straight stitch is to grasp both the back and front of the fabric and tug them taut so that the material is fully extended when sewing. When released, the stitches will have just the right amount of stretch. Be gentle with this!

    Zig zag also has a certain amount of built in stretch on knit/stretch fabrics, so also try that (without the tugging).

    Good luck.

  6. about the sewing… I think you use a wider stich and pull the fabric as you sew it so that when you let go, it stretches back into shape. Try it on a sample. Good luck!
