The Premise

Imagine, if you will, a group of friends exchanging 12 handmade gifts through the mail. Each person carefully saves the gifts they've received. Beginning December 13 they will open one gift a day for each of the 12 days of Xmas. Can you imagine how delighful and exciting that would be?!? We could-that's why we're doing it!

Welcome to the 12 Days of Xmas blog! Be sure to visit us often as gifts are wrapped and sent out to two groups of 12 artist friends. We will be sharing our goodies online right through to Xmas Eve, so come and share in the fun, even if only vicariously! We're not only creating gifts, we're creating magic!

Blog tip :)
to keep the intro to the blog on top go into setting and change the date then after you need to keep all the other dates after it... you will have to do this in settings every time you post something new :) that is what I did for the simply charming blog :)
A great idea and artistic under- taking! Making Christmas last a little longer...
the original twelve days of Christmas, according to the church calender, were from Christmas until January 6th, Epiphany, the feast dayfor the arriaval of the three magi and their gifts. I used to wish we would open a gift each day and celebrat into January.
