White Christmas Sale Extended and Christmas Hours

Handmade DIY Christmas Gift IdeasTALKING OUT LOUD – This week Christmas Shopping fever is beginning to set in. I am either making gifts or shopping online, there is very little that I will be getting at the mall this year.  I’m not going to miss it!

I’ve put together a guide with some of my favourite Christmas gift ideas as well as resources so that you can find what you need to make it yourself, and dig in to some interesting reading, both articles on everything Christmas and links to some of my favourite Christmas resources. 

It’s been a little slower out of the gate than I had hoped, but it’s definitely timely right about now.

I hope you’ll check it out and remember to enjoy the season and your family this year, another year will be over before you know it.

WHITE CHRISTMAS SALE EXTENDED: Due to a large amount of traffic to the website last month, some of you where not able to access the website during the White Christmas Sale, so we’re extending it until Dec. 16 or until supplies last.

HOLIDAY CLOSING:  I will be closing down shipping as well at that time, and opening again for our boxing day sale days.

Our “Make It Special – DIY Guide to Gift Giving” should be ready to go tomorrow.

It’s got a lot of great ideas for make it yourself gifts, and a lot more.

We were very lucky to have such a fantastic line up of contributors as well, they have truly helped to make it special. I greatly appreciate their taking the time during this busy season on short notice to boot, amazing people, every one of them.

The new eGuide will be available this year for 8.99, this will include access to an exclusive forum for you to chat with others who are Making It Special too, share your own resources, get inspired by others and whoop it up before Christmas with good cheer and all that stuff :0)

Below is a sneak preview of the what’s inside. I will send out notification when it is ready for you. You will be able to access it instantly online and download it to your computer.
