While trying to sleep last night, in the Queensland heat, I had an idea! I always wanted to do an advent calender style blog, with free patterns, crafty ideas and recipes everyday leading up to Christmas. But work, life, stuff got in the way and I got wrapped helping to organise the advent blogs for work. I was a bit sad when I realised that December was starting and I had missed the boat, so to speak, on my idea.
While tossing and turning last night I decided that enough was enough. I mightn’t be organised enough for 25 days of DIY give-a-ways and fun…but I was more than Crafter enough to organise 12 days worth!
And so from the 25th of December until the 5th of January, the Twelve Days of Christmas, I will be putting up a post everyday filled with knitting and crochet projects, recipes, softies and anything else that takes my fancy. I already have two of my own patterns that I am excited to finally release. I have the cutest little crochet project kindly donated by Lilycobweb (crochet fiend and etsy seller). The amazingly talented Nissa (of Softie Nation fame) agreed to contribute a lil softie/stitchy-something pattern awhile back, when I was still dreaming of the advent blog idea…hopefully she will still be up for it.
That leaves 8 days I still need to fill. I would love, love, love to include some fun posts by other knitters, crafters, secret bloggers (I’m look at you, AppleFluff and Jill) who would be game to have a go!
If you have an idea or suggestion please feel free to leave a comment below this post…or email me at parisa(underscore)june(at)hotmail(dot)com, with ’12 days of Christmas project’ in the subject line.
