SSC Holiday Blog Hop...

Welcome to Simply Scrapping Crafts First Annual Holiday Hop! We have quite a line-up for you today filled with lots holiday inspired goodies! Our DT has been busy at work in Santa’s workshop creating a sled full of gorgeous holiday projects to help you decorate, scrapbook or use for gifts! Be sure to comment all of the blogs along the way because we have "hidden" some extra special treats along the way. There is no way to tell where we have them stashed, so be sure not to miss out! Some of our hop hosts are giving an extra entry for becoming a follower. Who doesn't appreciate more chances to win right?
All winners will be announced on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 via the DT blogs and also in the hop room at SSC, which can easily be accessed here:
You have until 11:59PM EST tonight, December 4th, 2010 to comment for your chance to win. All you need to do is click on each link and leave a comment as you hop along to the end of the list. Are you ready for a Holly Jolly Holiday Hop? Let's get to hoppin'!


Here is a wonderful way to present any spirits that you may be giving this season....an altered wine carrier. Of course, you can always fill this with some other things too...scrapbook supplies, clothing (anything that can be rolled works super well)....lotions....truly the list is endless. I am currently working on one for my friend Alyssa who just had her very first baby. I got a bottle, a onesie, some baby socks, a nursing blanket thing...I am going to see what else I can stuff in there :) I am decorating it to match her nursery....lavender and black with damask prints and polka dots. She even has her own chandelier....yes, I want to move in...lol! I will share pics of it when I am finished. Now let's get festive and get down to business!

Darling wine carrier. I have some of that Christmas paper too. You could put so much in there, where do you get those wine carriers. They look like something that I could use to put my crochet needles and knitting needles in too.

Love ya, sweetie!

Very clever - and as you say, if you can roll it, you can put it in! I also think my knitting needles will be happy to live in a lovely little hous like this!
Thanks for inspiring us!

Awesome, awesome sista Pryn!! Love this so much!

This is a fantastic idea. We give wine to a couple friends every year but I always buy the carrier. I think things hand made have much more meaning to them so will try this new project. Thanks so much for sharing. Hugs, Sandi

Pryn - I love your project and wondered where you found the carrier to start with? Did you happen to have them or did you buy them somewhere!

I think it's a great way to present gifts, especially lotions and shower gels etc. Very FUN!!

I'm very happy to be a follower and so happy that I'm slowly making my way through the HOP today! ALL of the projects are WONDERFUL and it's been so fun seeing how creative you all all!

I can ONLY WISH I had so much talent!

grandmax2 said...

Great idea and beautifully decorated

kc71595 said...

How creative!! I'm not a wine drinker, so would've never given a thought to buying a wine carrier, but to use it for something like a baby shower gift... very creative!
Thanks for the ideas and inspiration!

Andrea6760 said...

Hey Girlie Girl! I love how you changed up the wine carrier and if I could drink I would drive over and sneak a sip!! I love the holly on the top and the ideas for using it for other items is fantastic! Might have to make one for my brother who now lives in Marietta Georgia and fill it with a terrible towel and Penguin stuff since he is still such a "Burgher" at heart!

I hope that you know I am already one of your followers and I spy on you all the time!! Thanks for joining in the Hop, its SO much fun and great to see all the fantastic holiday ideas.

*Hugs*
