*Winner Added* Frosty Festivities 2013 Announcement and Giveaway(NOW CLOSED)!

Edited to add – the winner of the giveaway is Katrina Day-Reilly for this Facebook post! Thanks to everyone who helped to share news of the event!

It’s time to announce my next big (and free!) blog event! Mark your calendars… read on for more details, and the chance to win a Glitz Hello December Collection Kit!

Frosty Festivities Event at Jennifer Grace Creates

You can see a few sneak peeks on the event logo above – check out the image at the top centre – that’s a glimpse at just some of the prizes that will be up for grabs during the weekend!

The event will follow the same format as my previous events. Over the weekend there will be posts every hour from 4pm-10pm Friday, and 10am-10pm Saturday and Sunday (GMT), including crafts, tutorials, challenges, tips, a blog hop (with a mix of old and new faces in the hop), and many, many giveaways! It will all be on the theme of Winter and Christmas, so we can get nicely in the festive spirit and share lots of ideas to see us through colder days.

The giveaways will stay open until the Monday night (11th Nov) at 10.59pm GMT, so if you’re not around during the weekend then you’ll have the Monday to try and catch up. The challenges will stay open until the following Sunday (17th Nov), so there’s more time to take part in those too!

To get the buzz going, here’s a giveaway today… the chance to win a Glitz Designs Hello December collection kit:

    Love those papers! Apart from Christmassy scrapbooking stash, my favourite thing about Christmas/winter would be spending lots of time with my family, and the cold frosty winter mornings (especially if I’m still in my PJs!)

    October 20, 2013 at 3:43 pm
  • Oops sorry pressed submit before I was ready in my excitement. What I love about Christmas is that lovely glow you feel when you come in from the cold and the house is warm, cosy and festive and the tree is lit up and there is that lovely smell of a log fire mixed with winter spices and oranges.

    I have always shied away from Christmas papers and kits, but something about this line really so appeals to me. I really want to attempt my own December Daily this year since it will most likely be the last time with DD living at home.

    October 20, 2013 at 4:06 pm
  • I love the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and all of the fun traditions that go along with it.
