by @according2kelly on July 16, 2010

okay folks, hold onto to your seats because i have some very, very exciting news for you… the brilliant miss cindy of skip to my lou, the fabulous & darling rachel of a southern fairytale & little ‘ole me will soon be hosting a “handmade holiday: bake, craft & sew along.” yep! yep! you read that correctly! this is going to be a holiday-inspired, summer time holiday trifecta.

starting this coming monday, each of our blogs will feature a different blogger with a new recipe, sewing project or craft that is perfectly holiday-inspired. a southern fairytale will be spotlighting recipes & all kinds of edible yumminess, skip to my lou will have you dusting off your sewing machines, & i will be highlighting some of the most incredible crafty, homemade gifts around. (just you wait… you will die when you see our line-up of featured bloggers, they are THAT amazing.)

it is our hope, wish & prayer that we can encourage everyone & anyone to make beautiful, handmade gifts this holiday. & if we all start now, we will all be pretty dang, well-prepared for the upcoming holiday season… hopefully eliminating just a wee bit of stress.

ready to bake, craft & sew along with us? be sure to check back daily for a new tutorial or how-to. & help spread the word… tell your friends & neighbors, shout it from the rooftops, hire a sky writer, use facebook & twitter to let the world know we’re starting the holiday celebrations just a little bit early this year. (speaking of twitter – we’ve “listed” all of bakers, crafters & sewers HERE & we’ll be using the hashtag #handmadeholiday, so send us a tweet, we’d love to hear from you.)

& just because we’ve gone to all this work, helping to ensure your holidays go just a bit more smoothly… don’t think you’re getting off scot free. oh no! we definitely need YOUR help. what good is a bake, craft & sew along, if you can’t play show-and-tell? so please! as you bake, craft & sew along with us, be sure to upload photos of your handmade gifts to our flickr group HERE… we can’t wait to be inspired by YOUR crafty & creativeness as well!

let the holiday-inspired bake, craft & sew along begin!
