Category: Countdown to Christmas 2012

Julie and Blu of BlueMorningExpressions are hosting a "Countdown to Christmas" on their blog.  What a wonderful idea!  Shop owners of ArtFire, Zibbet, Etsy, SupaDupa, a stand alone website and the like are welcome to share up to three gift items between Friday night at 12:01 a.m. and Monday morning at 12:01 a.m.  Then a new collection of gift items will begin again the next Friday.  This will continue until the second week in December.  The items shared need to be G-rated.

If you share items, you MUST promote each item in the countdown collection on at least one social network site, preferably on Wanelo or Pinterest where the items can be easily seen and then saved again.  

In addition to saving the countdown collections on my Pinterest and Wanelo boards , I decided to share one item from each of the ArtFire artists who participated on my blog.  Whew . . . there sure are a lot of them this week - and that's a GOOD thing!!!  Please, pull out a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil and begin your shopping list. Have fun!
