Let's Get This Party Started!!!





We are so excited to start our Joli Paqet Holiday Celebration! It all starts tomorrow, November 1st. We hope that you will visit us often throughout the month of November. We will be sharing fun holiday tutorials and tips and tricks with you. So from the wonderful Joli Paquet artists to you let's kick off the party with a fun giveaway!

I am giving away a hand made little stocking. I made it from recycled sweaters, vintage fabric, vintage buttons and seam binding.  It is about 12" long and would be so cute hanging on a mantel, a door knob or like I have it, hanging on an old door that sits in our entry way. It would also make a wonderful gift bag stuffed with holiday goodies for that special someone!

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by Wednesday, November 5th end of the day to be entered in the drawing. I will draw a winner on Thursday, November 6th and announce it here.

Please be sure and share Joli Paquet with your friends! It's going to be a fun month!

Come back by tomorrow, November 1st for a wonderful tutorial by Lori! It is super cute and you don't want to miss it!

A big thanks goes out to our hostess, Cerri! She has done a great job organizing and getting this event ready!

Holiday Hugs,
Cindy

Hi Cindy.
I just read the tutorial about the snowman box. That's something I can do so I just might give it a try. The give-away stocking is very cute. I envy anyone who can do such work. I am a klutz when it comes to anything involving sewing.
Thanks for sharing. I'll be back!
