The Twelfth Day of Craftmas: The Day of DOING!

Well people, it’s the Twelfth Day of Craftmas and the final post. Unfortunately my huge finale piece isn’t ready yet. It shouldn’t be long coming however and I really hope that it becomes something special. It’s going to be a little present, something that everyone can download and keep. With any luck, I’m hoping it will turn into a monthly gift too. But more on that in a few short days…

On the final day of Craftmas I’d like to reflect on all the amazing patterns, recipes and projects people have so kindly shared with me and you. They gave of their time, energy and ingenuity at a hectic time of year and all for the joy of creating! Included in the Honourable Mentions are contributors, supporters and crafty beings who have inspired and supported along the way –

The Twelfth Day of Craftmas is the day of DOING!

I challenge everyone to DO something with any of the ideas from Craftmas. Comment below with your results. If you blog, please feel free to link so we can see and read about your results. I’ve even set up a Flickr group that people can add their photos to.

The Twelve Days of Craftmas doesn’t have to stop at Day 12, it can go on as long as we want, with a little participation :)

Light a Little Fire…or make a little gingerbread…it’s all good!
