Fun With Digital Scrapbooking...Thanks Down This Road

Digital Designs and The Crafting Chicks! I was super excited to learn that I'd won a fantastic giveaway from Down This Road Digital Designs,  hosted by The Crafting Chicks! It was a whole Christmas themed digital kit called "Deck The Halls" filled with all kinds of wonderful goodies from digital papers to an alphabet to accents...

Digital scrapbooking is something I've wanted to learn and just haven't made the time to do so I'm really looking forward to playing with this using my Christmas photos. I couldn't wait to try to do SOMETHING so I made a button for my December Open House Link Party coming up on Friday December 17. I'm also not the best button maker but practice makes better right?!

Thank You For Coming....And A Winner!

Happy Monday and a big THANK YOU to all who dropped in for a visit to my Holiday Open House. I think we've all had that anxious feeling of "what if I throw a party and nobody comes" so I was very honored and excited that so many of you came to visit. There were 23 wonderful projects linked up and I'm not going to choose a favorite because they were all wonderful. Combine that with the 12 comments that were left and that's 35 names that went into the drawing for the giveaway celebrating reaching 200 Followers. I went low tech for this since it was a combo of linked projects and comments and you got one entry per.
And the winner is............

Congrats Michele! Email me your address so I can get "Lady Jingle Elf's Stocking" on her way .

And please join me next month on August 20th for another Holiday Open House!

"Christmas" ( and More) Open House Link Party!

Welcome, one and all to the first ever linky party at The Answer Is Chocolate! So glad you're here. What better time to have a holiday themed link party than in the middle of Summer? It's never to early to get ready for the holidays, so I thought I'd do this once a month through September, then weekly! Please link up decor, cards, gifts you've made, recipes...anything that goes from Halloween through New Year's! I realize it's early yet so even if it's not for / from this year, link it up because a lot of us are new since last holiday season and who can't use a new inspiring idea?

One of the things I love about the blogging community is how supportive everyone is of each other, especially us newbies. So please please please visit  at least two other links won't you? And leave them some bloggy comment love?

Christmas Open House Link Party Rules:
  • Link to your specific post, not your main blog
  • Describe your linked item  and don't just list your blog name
  • Please grab my button and place in your post on on your sidebar
  • No fruitcake ( just kidding...mostly) 
To celebrate my first link party and reaching the 200 ( now 219!) follower mark, I'm giving away a little something to get us in the spirit:

And what's a stocking without stuffers? So it will come with some goodies that may or may not include chocolate ! To qualify for the giveaway:
  • Link up something to this party
  • Leave a comment 
  • Be or become a follower 
Both the giveaway and party will close at midnight Sunday July 18.

Reminder: "Christmas Open House" July 16

Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th weekend. We did, and yet I was antsy that I couldn't blog or check blogs...Houston, we have a problem! Ate way too much, so this week will need to be a healthy one ( OK they all should be but...). Yes it's July and here's this crazy woman talking about Christmas!

Just a reminder that I'm having my first every linky party on July 16 and thought it would be fun to have a Christmas theme. I still haven't gotten into the sponsor thing ( if anyone's interested, I'm interested) but there will be a giveway...Christmas themed of course!

For those of you in parts of the country that are actually having Summer weather, it might be a fun break from the heat and it's never to early to start getting ready for Christmas, am I right? So:

  • Home Decor Items
  • Cards
  • Ornaments
  • Gifts You're Making
  • Recipes (especially chocolate!)
  • Whatever you want as long as it's Winter Holiday themed
Doesn't have to be for this year because look at how many new bloggers there are since last Christmas!

Hope you will come!

Save The Date...July 16...You're Invited!

 A special invitation to those stopping in from:

To what am I invited you might ask? To this I will answer:

Which will be my first ever link party! But it's in July you may ask? To which I may answer "We're crafters / and artists and foodies...literally butchers, bakers and candlestick makers" and Christmas has a way of sneaking up on people like us who plan to make all of this amazing stuff. 

So, I thought we'd have a link party to show off great ideas and projects. There are a lot of us new to blogging since last Christmas so don't worry if you may have showcased a project before.  Please feel free to share:
  • Home Decor Items
  • Cards
  • Ornaments
  • Gifts You're Making
  • Recipes (especially chocolate!)

I hope you'll come share in the fun, and please feel free to invite people and/or post about on your blog!
