Happy December 1! Can you believe it?? A few weeks ago, my husband said to me, “You know, you haven’t done an emagazine issue in a while. You should do one.” And so I said, “Of course! You’re right! Let me jump right on that!!!!” And so I did…. I am working on a Christmas issue right now. I’ve never done a Christmas issue, because this is always such a busy time of year, but I really love Christmas- I love the decorations, and sparkly lights, and music, and I really LOVE shopping for and giving gifts…. and I love the Christmas story best of all, because God promised a Savior, and the Christmas story is the beginning of that promise fulfilled.

I intended for this to be a “mini” issue, but as it goes with most things I start, it’s growing and getting bigger!! (I think I’ve probably mentioned to you that I am a “more is More” kind of girl??)  It’s full of quick projects, recipes, and printables- because the holidays will be here before we know it! Here are some of the things which will be in the issue:

The issue, like all of my emagazine issues, is FREE. People find that hard to believe, they think there must be some catch. But the truth is, I have a lot of fun putting the emagazines together, and I want as many people as possible to get their hands on it. If there is a catch, I suppose it’s that you will also receive a “newsletter” type email from me 1-3 times per month… but hopefully, you will like that, too!! I try to make it cute and concise- basically, a round-up of recent blog posts, upcoming events, and any current sales or coupons.

And while we’re talking about fun stuff, don’t forget about the Blog Hop for a book I contributed to, called A Flair for Fabric (Martingale.) There are lots of prizes being given away, including copies of the book and fabric bundles! My day will be this Friday, December 5, so be sure to stop back for your chance to win some great prizes.

AND, I’m hosting another great giveaway here on Monday December 8!! This will be a little different, because instead of just giving away books or patterns or fabric, I’m giving away one of my hand-made, one of a kind creations, which I’m making just for this event…

FINALLY, there’s just a teeny tiny bit of time left to enter this giveaway as well- click here for details.
