Hip For The Holidays

It is a bit odd to be a craft blogger and to find myself uninterested in holiday home decor.  I love setting up the Christmas tree, and hanging stockings, but I am a bit of a minimalist when it comes to decorating for holidays. I don't need to have the whole house plastered in red and green to feel the Christmas Spirit. Turn on some Christmas music, make some homemade candy, wrap some presents in shiny paper, and I am good to go.  I have felt a bit out of place in the blogging world, and decided that I need to focus my crafting energy on something that interests me a bit more...sewing.

I really enjoyed Top-toberfest.  It was fun to challenge myself into making so many tops in a short amount of time.  I also really enjoyed gleaning inspiration from all of your creations.  I have decided that in honor of the holiday season I am going to throw another celebration of sorts.  I am going to call this series/theme week "Hip for the Holidays".  Don't get me wrong, I'm really not all that hip, but it was the best that I could come up with.

I love the idea of dressing up for the Holidays.  I have to admit that don't usually dress up much more formally than my typical Sunday dress, but I like the idea of having "Holiday Outfits", you know, just in case you get invited to a fancy schmancy dinner party.

I am intending on starting this series the Monday November 27th.  I am hoping to create a basic holiday look for each member of the family.  I would also love to have another link party where you can link up your holiday apparel.

I am open to the idea of having holiday apparel related giveaways.  If you'd like to sponsor a giveaway during "Hip for the Holidays" then please contact me.  Some items that I'd be interested in would be bows, bags, headbands, holiday themed tops, jewelry, holiday apparel sewing patterns, ect.  Please e-mail me with any questions.

If you have a special project that you think would be appropriate for this celebration please feel free to contact me about the possibility of guest posting.

I hope that you enjoy this as much as I think I'm going to.

Side Note: Due to the amount of sewing that is going into these holiday themed outfits, blogging may be a bit light next week.

What a fun idea! Can't wait to see what you come up with. I agree -- it feels strange to be a craft blogger and NOT be all over the holiday decor. I figure I'll get to the holiday decor when I finish my Christmas gift list... which might not be until Christmas Eve. :)

Sounds fun! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who feels that way about decorating. I love decorations but don't want to spend money and storage space on too many.
