Hol-ODD-Day-Hop!




WELCOME to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop!  ‘Tis the season for the Odd Girls to get their craft on, and whip up some fun things just in time for the holidays!   Some Odd Girl is very happy to bring you our annual…

 


This year, we are VERY happy to bring you some of our gift and decor ideas that we hope will inspire you as we all head into the home stretch!  Today, we HOP!  All you have to do is visit all of the blogs below and leave some love at each stop.
You should have arrived from Isha’s blog – if so, you’re definitely on the right track!  :)   If not, CLICK HERE to get to the beginning ‘cuz you won’t want to miss a beat!

There are some random thingies to be won here and there, but I can’t tell you exactly where!  You might also notice that we have a guest crafter or two  joining us this week! (One joins us today – woo hoo! – and the other will pop up in the week and we’ll give you an extra chance to win!)  
Needless to say, we have had a TON of fun making our Hol-ODD-Day projects, and we hope you have fun hopping with us!  Ready?  Here’s the hop list!



This project was so much fun, getting to really think about something other than cards and scrapbook pages and making something super gifty instead! I LOVE making jewelry, so I thought what better way to show off the awesome ways you can use the SOG stamps than to make a necklace with one! I stamped the poppy from Believe onto a page from Snow White & Rose Red. I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then sealed it with glue, making sure to fuzz the red around the edges to give it a nice vintage feel. Then I just popped on a glass cabochon, trimmed around the edges and adhered it to a necklace base I made.


So, hop around, take your time, leave your comments between now and Sunday, December 15th and we’ll have some winners to announce on Monday, the 16th!  There may or may not be a stamp set or two up for grabs.  There may ALSO be (or maybe not!) some of the new Odds & Ends to win!  ANNNND there may even be some extras.  But you’ll have to join us throughout the week to find out!

Now you’re off to Lesley’s blog!  Enjoy the hop, Oddies, and we’ll be showing details of some of the projects throughout the week, so drop by and watch for your bonus chances to win!
