Here's how to enter:

Snap a photo of your holiday prep in action — maybe it’s your growing stash, your cozy crafting space or your gifts-in-progress. Then post the photo on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #MyHandmadeHoliday.

The deadline to post your photo is Friday, September 30 at 11:59 pm MT. We’ll then pick one lucky crafter and notify them via social media. Even if you don’t win, your photos could be featured on Craftsy!

How about knitting some cotton dishcloths. They always seem to go over very well with my friends. Or if you are a sewer…. a reversible tote bag.

Last year I made infinity scares using Minky. This year I’m making washable fabric grocery totes.

Depending on what kind of fashion your girlfriends are into, you could always go with some pretty boot toppers with some neat buttons, or some fingerless gloves. Maybe a matching set over the span of two years? And an infinity scarf, like Gwen mentioned, for year three?!

Are we supposed to put the pics on Craftys FB or our own FB with the #MyHandmadeHoliday?

Hi there! Great question. Either page is totally fine. As long as you use the #MyHandmadeHoliday hashtag, we should be able to find your post.

I am planning on making placemats, in pretty bright colours. Everyone can always use more placemats. Mug rugs would also work really well.
