12 Weeks of Christmas is Coming!

12 Weeks of Christmas Banner

It’s less than 2 weeks until my annual 12 Weeks of Christmas campaign.  It’s my way of thanking my mailing list subscribers each year.  Every week for 12 weeks leading up to Christmas, a different holiday project tutorial is sent to you.  You receive step-by-step tutorials for handmade holiday cards, gifts and wrapping ideas all exclusive to my newsletter subscribers–you won’t find them anywhere else!

It’s very exciting and I can’t wait to share this year’s ideas with you!  If you aren’t already a newsletter subscriber, now is the time to sign up.  Simply click the yellow box in the upper right-hand corner of my site to join the festivities.
