You guys. Tomorrow is October. Is it just me or did that come out of nowhere? If you've been around a while you know that every October I like to link-up with the Nester and tackle a month-long 31 day series. Two years ago I wrote about 31 Days of Hidden Potential and last year (when I put in a ton more work) my topic was 31 Days of 2x4 Projects. This year I'm trying to really mix it up again and do a totally different topic, so I'll be writing about.... 31 Handmade Gifts for Everyone on Your List!
I know handmade gift are fun to give & to receive, but it's hard to pull them off sometimes. So I'm going to do my best to keep things pretty quick and simple (and as affordable as I can). And to make sure we hit everyone on your list I'm going to break the projects down into week long categories. Here's our agenda for the month:
So for the first week we'll be tackling gifts for babies (and things that will be helpful to moms & dads of babies). Week two will be gifts for kids that can work for a range of ages, and most of which will be pretty gender neutral. Week 3 will be gifts for the all the ladies you know, some practical and some just plain pretty. Week four is gifts for the guys (which I think are the hardest to find gifts for!). And the last week will be miscellaneous projects - things you give to neighbors or coworkers, and maybe even a gift wrapping idea or two.
Everyday I'll be linking up the new post right here. Just click the picture and it will take you to the tutorial for that day! I'll be adding the buttons as I get them ready, but if you click on one before the day it goes live you'll get an error message. So be sure to come back for any gifts that catch your eye!
Friends and family... don't be surprised if any of these show up in your stockings this year. Girls gotta work with what she has. But the good news for the rest of you is that I won't be using all these gifts this year.... so I'll be hosting a GIVEAWAY for all the extras at the beginning of November! Seriously, guys, you'll want to be here for a chance to check a few things off your Christmas list.
I've got a great start on the series so far... but with my two babies running around (well, one running and one being carried) I'm a little nervous about the time crunch. But I'll be doing my best to get each post out on time! And hopefully by the end of the month we can all have a great start on our lists for this year. If anyone else is interested in tackling your own 31 day series, you can join the fun and link up at the Nesting Place!
