Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


I have something a little different today as I am one of the guests and sponsors for our fabulous DT member Taheerah's Advent Calendar Extravaganza which is a pretty enormous task that Taheerah undertakes every year so I had to make sure we were part of it to support her.



Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!


And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!


Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!


For my project I'm sharing some gift tags with a hint of humour from Sugar Pea Designs.  I love Wendy's sense of humour and she's done it again this year with this fabulous Christmas Tag Greetings set with a co-ordinating die.  I will be making lots of these to add to my parcels.  I like wrapping in kraft and often stick to classic red, white and green accessories to go with it so have done my tags in that theme.



There are lots of options with this set and all the pieces and sentiments perfectly co-ordinate so you can mix and match to your hearts content!




Now, it’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win as part of the extravaganza! Today’s prize is supplied by me so you’ll definitely want to win! Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win! Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more! You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2017 to enter.


Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! Merry Christmas!




NEWS FROM THE STORE

That's it for the extravaganza part of my post - now we have my regular weekly news round up for what will be happening at Seven Hills Crafts this week.

We close at MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY 15th DECEMBER for our move and for Christmas and will not re-open for orders until the 28th so don't hang around for any last minute purchase requirements  (You can still buy gift vouchers if you need a last minute gift after Friday but you can't spend any you receive until we re-open)

We will have the following new releases in store this week just before we close:
  • Concord and 9th December release probably on Tuesday or Wednesday
  • The Lawn Fawn release will be in store on Thursday
 We have some other orders coming but they will not be here before we close so look out for the following when we re-open and into early to mid-January:
  • Hero Arts December Kit Add-ons
  • Avery Elle's latest release
  • Altenew's latest release
  • Flora and Fauna's latest release
  • Waffle Flower latest release
  • Winnie and Walter's latest release
The blog will also close on Friday to give the Design Team a well deserved break - I'll have the odd update whilst we're closed but otherwise we'll be back with your daily dose of artistic inspiration on 2nd January.
