T'was the night....HOLIDAY Blog HOP......

I could not imagine letting the year end without a holiday blog hop....
suggested a- Holiday Season Hop and loved T'was the night...
so we went from there...

I love this time of year, I have noted many hearts swell
at the memories, I would love to create even more for you all..

And you know how much I love rhymes...
so this is what filled my screen and yours....

T'was the night...

T'was the night before posting we're told it's a gift
a holiday present that has to conjure a lift...
It has to be made within hours, something so sweet
a pleasure to masses that has meaning so deep..

So if you can think of a gift or a something to stitch
and you know it will take only hours to enrich..
then join us this season with hearts content
You know your time will be so well spent......

Mdm Samm x

So what does this mean....

WElllllllll YOU are all so imaginative, talented, filled with inspiriation...
so here is your opportunity to share something CHRISTMACY,
that could be small gifts that can made within hours...not days...
that YOU can share with us all..

Some suggestions, embroidery, towels, cards, paper piecing,
small wall hanging, cookie jars, pajama bottoms,
jewels, fobs wine bottle jackets, dolls, pin cushions....

Anything that would make for great christmas gifts
that tells someone YOU CARE...

NOTE: something else else.....
how about one of the projects that you make you share with one of our ladies
in our hop....kinda like a secret santa....?
( although it won't be a secret, but what you make for her will be....) 

Everyone in our hop would get a  small HOMEMADE gift to show how much we all care....

You would give to the person  below you  on the schedule...
( of course you would know who that is way when Marlene sends the schedule )
keep it small, filled with heart...


Marlene would make something for Cathy, Cathy would make something for Cori,
Cori would make something for the next person on the list......

On the day of your hop....YOU would show your small 
project you made Christmas and Holiday related...
and  then you would show WHAT you received from the lady
above you....

this gives everyone plenty of time to make something
remember that is a small project and you will send to 
the blogger below you...


I will be gifting  to the first one on the hop....( wink)

So if interested let us know---- Marlene will be cheering you on this one...
She is one of those ladies who loves this season, a lady who
is always supportive, a lady who has a delightful sense of humor....
and a lady who is an ideal cheerleader....

So send her your info
with the subject line...

T'was the night, I WANT TO GIFT.....


She will need:

ADDRESS ( home address)  this will help her to put the schedule together.
Name of your Blog
and LINK to your Blog..

She will be sure to line you up so you will be sending to someone
close to your state or country...

Anyone and everyone can participate in our HOPS.
If ever you wanted to have cheerleaders in your life
to cheer on your creativity….
well you do not need to look any further…

1. CREATE something that SHOUTS
T'was the night and send something to the lady below you on 
the scheduled hop.

2. BE a cheerleader for all those who participate, there is nothing 
as heartfelt as your lovely comments.

3. Please turn off your word verification the day of your
