Goodbye November, Hello December!

by Jessika Hepburn, O Happy Day Handmade

I love December, it is my favorite month of the whole year. My husband’s birthday is on the 16th, our anniversary is the 17th and MY birthday is the 18th! So we basically just have one big party straight through until Boxing Day. Some crazy twist of fate made it work out that even though I am a year older, we are exactly the same age for the one day between our birthdays. This year we will both be 27 on the 17th and we will be celebrating our 7th anniversary! Love is funny like that.

We have an equally exciting month ahead here on Oh My! Handmade. We have our big Handmade Holidays Giveaway that will be posted on December 5th just 4 days from now.  You can download the press release here– spread the word and tell all your friends! We will be showcasing these giveaway contributors: Redraven Studios, Sweet Harvey, Noisette Illustration, Perideau Designs, Magpie Patterns, Omiyage and Kara Correspondence with spotlight features. Be prepared to fall in love and possibly overspend, these are dangerously great shops!

I am busy tonight putting together the stunning giveaway baskets to be photographed tomorrow so I will leave you with a little recap of the past month. November was filled with examples of what we know and what we love, from tutorials to features and guest posts, what was your favorite November OMHG read?
