    Getting ready for a handmade holiday

    Posted by  ·  November 2, 2009

    I hope you will join me all month long for tutorials on handmade gift ideas. I did this last year and soon all those ideas along with new ideas will be organized neatly for you in the Skip to my Lou Handmade Gift Guide.

    holiday_buttonWould you please help me get the word out about the Handmade Gift Guide? I would love it if you would place the button on your blog. If you do please e-mail me and let me know you have placed the button  and I will e-mail you  a little treat for you to download.

    Tweet about the gift guide with the hashtag #handmadegifts and at the end of November I will randomly choose 5 people to each receive a free month listing on the Chic Chick Media Peeps widget .
