Calling all Ashura, Bodhi Day, Boxing Day, Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa celebrators!

Hey, have you looked at the calendar? It’s August already. You know what that means: the trees will be going up in the stores any day now! So, let’s beat them to it. Shelley Graham Turner of Tori Sophia, and I have come up with a novel way to start off the busy holiday season with a
Holiday Bling Blog Hop.

We were discussing the idea of exchanging one of our handmade ornaments with each other and we thought "Wouldn’t it be fun to open it up to anyone who wants to join in the fun?!”
We decided the best way to do this would be to match up partners, and each pair can decide what it is that they would like to exchange: handmade ornaments, holiday jewelry, etc.

Sign-ups will run now through August 16th, with partners being matched up by August 25th.
Of course, there will be a Blog Hop involved to showoff what you sent and/or received - it will take place on October 6th.

So, if you want to join the party, please leave a comment below and then e-mail and include your name, address and whether or not you’d be willing to ship internationally.

Watch your email on August 25th to see who your partner is, or just come on back to either Shelley's or this blog for the list.


  1. Oh, that's such an excellent idea! Count me in :)

  2. I'm in Sweetie, and I'll ship anywhere.

  3. I will cheer everyone on from the sidelines! I am hosting the "My Bead Table" Blog Hop October 13th, and I am afraid of overextending myself. Sounds like a lot of fun!

  4. Would definitely like to do this with you guys and I'd LOVE to ship internationally (the further the better LOL). This is an awesome idea, Marlene and Shelley!

  5. Hi Marlene,
    This sounds like fun please sign me up, thank you.

  6. Sounds like so much fun, count me in.

  7. oooh can I join too? *runs off to email* lol =)

    Lo/The Creative Klutz

  8. I'm participating in "My Bead Table" but I think it would be good to stay busy! And I'm Holiday Happy!!! We even inflate the 12 foot Santa in the hot summer every "Christmas In July" just so the neighbors and our family can have a HO HO Hearty chuckle! Please, add me in. Thank you :)

  9. Sounds like wonderful fun! I would love to join and I can ship anywhere. Off to email my info.

  10. Is it too late? I just came to know about it today:(. If you think you can take me please leave me a note at ditabasu@ Thank you. I love blog hops. Dita
