I’ve been doing a bit of housekeeping here on the blog- moving things around, needing to add more links, etc. Today I spent 3 hours (in a state of utter frustration and near-alopecia as a result of same) trying to make a blog button, and ta-dah!!! (as all the with-it bloggers say these days):
Here, is a blog button. Feel my blood, sweat and tears as you look at it… (I think I need a stint on the stage) and feel free to “take” it for your blog; (html at the end of this post: you paste this into your widget section (or at least thats what I do in WordPress)to create the button on your blog)
for this Advent I am hosting a
The idea is that as many as possible bloggers will add their tuppenny piece: a Christmas craft idea, recipe or tutorial and link it back here (there will be a page on the right with all the links) I will be posting a craft tutorial each day of Advent to bring us up to Christmas day: lots and lots of ideas for festive homemaking and making gifts for you and loved ones, and giveaways too!
(I have actually started compiling posts so I am ultra-organised; really, there must be a blue moon out!!)
So! Will you join me?
Lets make this a great party!!
html code for button:

Oh fun!!! I’m in 🙂
It sounds great, Emily. Do I put the blood/sweat/tears nest on my blog to indicate I am taking part?
Great idea Emily.
Hope all is well.
Am sure that you are busy busy!
Here is how UNcrafty I am — I can’t even figure out how to put up the button, lol! But I will have fun watching you work!
You can Nuala, if you can work out how to put it on (hopefully won’t take your blood sweat & tears to do so!!! )
Ah Gail, you won’t be allowed to have any mince-pies then 🙂 How about a tutorial to make your beaded spoons???
I cannot get the linky thingy to work – and after 1/2 hour, I am not sure how you are still sane after 3 hours!
Anyway – I am in – hopefully with a link and a picture
sounds wonderful! thank you for the invitation ♥
Fantastic Deb!! Woo-hoo!! Party!! 🙂
Karen, I hope you get it to work… if you don’t succeed, I’ll do a step-by-step… (hope it’s not acting up my end !!) Just brilliant you will be partying over here!! 🙂
I’ve put the link up – I think you need to close the html for the image.
I can’t wait to see it all.
oh yes, i am in as well! Nice idea. and a beautyful button! 🙂
I would love to if I can find the time! I am nearly on school holidays and have plenty of projetson the go! I will make sure I take some pics so I can share! Thanks for your visit, kind words and invite! Happy week! X
