It’s that time of year again and Craft Shows are conveniently popping up everywhere in an effort to accommodate all the Christmas shopping wishes and wants. Craft Shows are a perfect opportunity for busy little bees like myself, who don’t have a storefront to decorate in ribbons and bows for the season, to get our wicked-awesome work in front of all of our wicked awesome people…that’s you.
This year I chose to enter the Snowball Craft Show in Wainwright and it is fast approaching. I have been stressing myself out trying to figure out how to put my best foot forward but there are so many Christmas ideas floating around in my brain that wrangling them together and fishing them out has been an…interesting process, to say the least. So I put a filter on it and only entertained ideas that were art and design related, like moi.
Whilst slimming the idea list - I had a new idea. *facepalm* Why am I so counterproductive? Well...I’m not, not totally anyway. This new idea, The Five Days of Christmas, ties together all of the other things I’ve been working on for Christmas and let’s me share them all with you! It also gives me the opportunity to make some new friends and give out some free stuff (which is awesome all of the time) so to prepare you for the upcoming Craft Show and perhaps even entice you to come down and say hello, I’ve put together my very own 5 Days of Christmas.
Day 1 - Monday, November 20, 2017
One of my main goals in life is to encourage creativity in kids. Children are such magical little creatures and their imaginations are absolutely limitless, I love giving them the opportunity to express themselves and be creative. So for my first day of Christmas I am giving you a free printable colouring page from my 2017 Christmas Design Collection, it’s brand new, I literally just drew it yesterday. Obviously, you are welcome to this even if you’re not a child, but if you do have kids...maybe give them a copy too.
Day 2 - Tuesday, November 21, 2017
One thing that the holidays always commemorate is the year behind us and we celebrate the year to come. So I will be bringing all of my 2017 artworks, cards, and prints to the Snowball Craft Show and selling them at a sale price. It will be my way of letting go of 2017 and whole-heartedly embracing what’s yet to come...and I’ll definitely be giving you some free stuff today to celebrate the upcoming sale!
Day 3 - Wednesday, November 22, 2017
I’m very excited about Wednesday because it’s still a little bit of a secret that on Wednesday I’m going to be introducing a fun thing that I will be doing in person at the Snowball Craft Show. And so, on Wednesday you could get it free, so don’t miss out on the opportunity and stay tuned in.
Day 4 - Thursday, November 23, 2017
Ta-da! Today is an awesome day because today is the day I’m going to showcase all of my new Christmas designs - all of which is totally brand new and never before seen (other than the preview from Monday’s colouring page) and I’m so excited that I simply must do a draw for you to win either a set of 5 of my Christmas Cards or a Christmas Art Print.
Day 5 - Friday, November 24, 2017
It’s here! The Snowball Craft Show is finally here! I have a super fun giveaway happening at my table and I’m going to give you the opportunity to enter online as well...you know, if you can’t make it to the show...but if you can, you’ll want to check out the sweet little surprise I’ll have waiting for you today.
So there you have it, the amazing Five days of Christmas by tbad ltd. idea, my best effort at sharing and giving and hoping that this might help get you through the doors of that Snowball Craft Show, or at least get some free gear into your mitts...or maybe both. Hope to see you there and the five days before as well!
