Blog Hop and Candy!!

Welcome to the first ever blog hop at The Hodge Podge Shop!  If you arrived from Jessie's blog you're on the right track!  I'm so thrilled you joined us today.  There will be a winner at every stop along the way so please leave a little love for each of the girls! Each DT will have a random winner of one of the beautiful Hodge Podge Shop images. Plus, some of our girls are offering blog candy, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

And don’t forget that the Hodge Podge Shop has moved! Make sure you update your bookmarks! The new address is: www.etsy.com/people/HodgePodgeShop and this month, all images are priced at just $2.50 each!

Now for my project.  I decided to do a Christmas ornament or door hanger, not sure yet what I'll do with it.  I used Hodge Podge's image "Snowman1".  I saw this idea while browsing blogs and came across one done by Diana (Moshie).  It was so beautiful I just had to do one myself.

I ran ribbon through the center of a used up ribbon spool.  I then covered it with 2 layers of cardstock and my image.  Then I just added some paper Prima flowers embellished with glitter pen and snowflakes.  Then I added some silver Pearl Pen to the edges.  The back is for your signature or you could put To: and From: and use it for a gift tag.  I thought this would be a fun project to get the kids involved in to.  They could make an ornament with their school picture for the grandparents.  So many possibilities! 

Just to make sure you're still paying attention.........I have BLOG CANDY in addition to the free image. So that means I will be choosing two winners from comments on this post. The winners for both will be randomly drawn on Nov. 30th.

I only ask that you leave a comment and become a follower here and at The Hodge Podge Shop Challenge site. Please post this with a link back here.  Your sidebar is fine.  It's in your best interest anyway because December is my birthday and I have a HUGE blog candy coming up on Dec. 1.

Thanks for stopping and enjoy the rest of the hop.  From here you are off to the very talented Linda!  If you get lost along the way you can always go back to the beginning.  Here's the order:
