Kimba's Open House Party






I'm so glad that you're here! There's a lot of partying going on in blogland this week! I hope you saved lots of energy to make some more rounds today.



I love this time of year and I can't wait to see all of your holiday goodness. Me? I've been making paper chains. I decided yesterday that my 5-year old and I could make enough paper chains for our whole tree. That's a lot of paper chains.



Note the close-up photos. That's because I don't have enough to do the bottom of the tree yet. Just keeping it real.



In case you forget, I have some presents for you. I will randomly pick winners of the goodies in this picture (and maybe more if I have too much wassail). The winners will be chosen from everyone who either links up their holiday post or comments. So you no-blog people can play too!



My two favorite blogging sisters, Kari and Kijsa, are having a giveaway today too. It's adorable!

There are only two rules for this party. Rules for a party? That's a buzz-kill. How about we call them required suggestions?

1. Please link directly to your holiday post and not to the main page of your blog. My readers will be clicking on these links for weeks (maybe months!) so we want them to be able to find your holiday post.

2. You can link to any holiday post, old or new, but to be in the running for presents, you must link back here. That's only fair, right? You can do a regular old link or you can grab a button from this post and add it to your post or sidebar.

Let's get to partying!

How funny I was just sitting here thinking of how I needed some sort of garland for our living room tree. I was thinking popcorn but then I remembered our 9 month old Boxer puppies (yes...you heard me right, puppies as in TWO! - I know call me CRAZY!!)and I saw your idea of the paper garland. A CLASSIC!! And easy....Thanks again Kimba for a great idea!! GREAT party!!!!
