Happy Monday and a very happy November! I am still a bit high on the sugary excitement of our past weekend but also thrilled to be kicking off this new season with you today. I cannot think of a better way to kick it off than with a handcrafted celebration challenge for the coming holiday season.

A holiday DIY challenge, meant to inspire your celebrations and to spread joy! Many of my favorite shops are chipping in to make our grand prize award an amazing bundle of gifts (worth over $500!) that will arrive on your doorstop in perfect time to celebrate. See more about the stores included in the prize package here.

How it works:

  • Submit any original DIY project to the challenge as long as it fits into the genre of a handcrafted holiday celebration. You can submit as many projects as you like. Send your submissions in email form to me at citycradledesign (@) gmail.com
  • For each submission please include- 2-4 photos of the final project and 4-8 photos of the DIY process. An introductory paragraph about your project, a materials list, and the complete steps for your DIY creation.
  • All submissions must be received by December 11th to be included.
  • The finalists will be showcased here the two weeks prior to Christmas. The grand prize winner will be announced on December 24th.

I am incredibly thrilled to be creating a beautiful holiday season alongside you this year!

blessings.
