Just Something I Whipped Up - Holiday Style!

Posted by Diana Miller | Labels:

Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas season is in full swing. Are you excited? We set up our tree this weekend so it's "Beginning to look a lot like Christmas" around here. I'm still contemplating doing some sort of blog hop/blog fest for Christmas but not quite sure. I thought about doing linky parties for a week with a theme for each day but am not settled on that idea 100%. I don't know. I'm so indecisive. :( I'm also pregnant with a bad sinus infection so I'm sure those 2 things do not help!

Anyhow, enough of my rambling and boring woes, let's get to our linky party this week. For this week lets post CHRISTMAS RELATED PROJECTS ONLY. Show me what you've been working on!




Just Something I Whipped Up

Last week was such a long, busy week and I have had a cold for days now so this may be another quiet week around here so I apologize in advance. I do have some things that I'm working on for Christmas so hopefully I will be giving everyone that info once I figure out exactly what I'm doing.

And thank you to everyone who gave me tips and pointers on sewing stretch fabric. It was all so helpful and I knew you guys would have all the answers!! :) I still need to create a post about what I did to the little baby pants but unfortunately one little girl creative got marker on them so I have to wash them and pray it comes out!

In the meantime, let's link up!


  • Add a link to a specific post not your blog homepage.
  • Can be anything you've been working on from recipes, to sewing, to mod podge, to a before and after, to a room re-do, to...........well you get the idea. :)
  • It would be really cool if you could grab a button and add it to your blog somewhere, I'm not picky.

Happy Linking!

I've been kind of thinking a lot about Christmas already. Somehow I get the feeling I'm not alone. :) I have some ideas brewing and I wanted to throw them out there.

First, I'm thinking of putting together a Christmas Gift Giving Directory. Basically, if you have a business and you are running holiday sales I want to add you to our Gift Giving Directory. Basically you would email me a link to your website/esty shop, info on the sale you are running or a discount code you are offering and I would create a directory. If this is somthing you would be interested in, leave a comment and let me know. If I don't get a good response, I will probably scrap the idea.

Second, last year I hosted our first Creating Christmas Blog Fest. It lasted for 5 days and each day we had a themed linky party from Creative Gift Wrapping Ideas, to Christmas Recipes to Family Traditions. I would like to do some form of this again, including getting other blogs involved so if THIS is something you think would be good, leave a comment and let me know.

New Friend Friday - November Edition

Posted by Diana Miller | Labels:

Hello Friends!! Boy have I missed you!!! I hope everyone is ready to link up and to make new bloggy friends. :)

Before we get started I have a few things I wanted to share for some of the bloggy friends that I have made over the last year. And since it's New Friend Friday I thought today would be the perfect day to give them a shout out!

My fabulous sponsor Cathy from Cap Creations is hosting an amazing event from November 1 - November 30 called Christmas Giving.



Here's what you need to know to get involved:

1. At any time during November, post your giveaway on your blog. This is your giveaway so include your own rules for entering. (how to enter, where you will ship and so on)

2. In your giveaway post, include a link back to this post so everyone knows that there are other giveaways to be entered. Feel free to use the giveaway button above, the more people that know about this event the better!

3. Come back and add your link to the giveaway list! Giveaways added without following step #2 above will be deleted. Sorry!

4. Announce the winner of your giveaway on your blog on November 30th and get it shipped out to arrive by Christmas. Please do not end your giveaway before the 30th.

Finally this giveaway should be something you feel represents Christmas or something you feel would make an excellent Christmas gift! It could be something you make or if you don't make anything you could go out and get a little something together! Anything is fine! It is about giving after all!

Next, my bud Rachelle from Fingerprints on the Fridge is a finalist in the True Value Design SOS Contest for her basement that needs some major help. Sheesh, I wish I had known about this contest because I could have entered like half my house in this. lol But since I didn't I want the next best thing, one of my friends to win it. So............be a lamb, click HERE and vote for Rachelle. :)


Okay, let's get to our New Friend Friday party! To refresh your memory, the rules are simple:

  • Add a link to your main blog homepage not a specific blog post.
  • Visit the blog before and after you in the link list and LEAVE A COMMENT.
  • If you find a blog that you love, feel free to follow although following is not an obligation. No need to follow everyone who follows you. That's not what this is about.
  • Visit as many blogs as you can and make some new friends.
