Happy Cyber Monday! To kick off this festive holiday season, we are bringing back:
Here's how it works:
- We ask a question each weekday.
- You leave your answer in the comments section each day to the question (and you can enter each day!).
- We will randomly pick a winner each day to send a free book to!
This year, we are starting earlier (19 days) so we can give away more books!
Today is DAY 1! Can I get whoop!? Or maybe a jingle of bells?
1. It's an easy question:
Did you shop on Black Friday? Did you buy any books or craft supplies? What was your biggest score? Was it something you had "pre-shopped for" and lined up insanely early for? Was anyone maimed in the acquisition of said shopping item?
I did not shop on Black Friday; I did holiday crafting and I pulled out my Christmas decorations and had a fabulous trip down memory lane. A significant chunk of the decorations are either hand-crafted or have fun memories attached.
Be sure to read the comments of others; maybe you can pick up a good idea, a new place to find your inspiration, or just a good giggle!
If you are like me and make a lot of your holiday accoutrement, here are what my fellow crafty bloggers have to share with you:
