Hello everyone, welcome to day 1 of our 2 day Holly Jolly Blog Hop. If you got here from Stephanie's blog than you are moving in the right direction. If not head on back so that you don't miss out on any of these amazing projects.
This is my first time participating in a blog hop and I'm so excited. My gift idea is a decorated scented candle. It is a Hobble Creek Candle and the scent is Christmas Cookies. It is a yummy gingerbread/sugar cookie smell. I have one of my own and LOVE it. I thought it would make a yummy gift. I made these for my daughter's teachers. This set is for my daughter's dance teacher who LOVES Disney stuff. On Sunday I will post my non-Disney version that she is giving to her school teacher.
These cute little gingers wrap all the way around the candle.
Here is a view of the top of the candle. I added an Action Wobble to this little label. My daughter LOVES that added touch.
For those of you who may not know what an Action Wobble is, they are a dimensional spring that add a lot of movement to your projects. They are not currently sold, but should be available for sale sometime during the first quarter of 2011. Here is a very short video demonstrating how it moves. They are so much fun.
BLOG CANDY: Here is what I'm offering for blog candy. 6 total yards of twine in 3 different colors (black and white, red and white, green and white), 5 Action Wobbles and a Cuttlebug circle die cut set (pictured below). This blog candy is available to anyone residing in the US or Canada. Please leave me a comment to be entered for the blog candy. You do not have to be a follower of my blog, but I would love it if you were. I will randomly pick the winner on Monday, December 13th, 2010.
Also remember that for the grand prize which is a bunch of scrapping goodies donated by Scrapadabadoo make sure to leave a comment on each project along the hop. Here is a complete list of the blog hop order. Click on the name to go to their blog.
