Hi Everyone! My name is Jerri, creator of the the blog Simply Sweet Home. I'm here today to guest post and announce the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash. It's going on next week, December 14-18. We have 5 fantastic blogs hosting 5 fabulous events for you to link up to. And we'll also have lots of prizes to giveaway, including a $50 Christmas Surprise Pack, from your very own Grammy Girlfriend Teresa!

Incidentally, Teresa's Christmas Tree and Gift Basket businesses have been so sucessful this year that it's rendered her unable to host the Christmas Tree event for the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash next week, as she will be out of town. So instead I'll be here on Tuesday to host the Christmas Tree event in Teresa's place. I'll be featuring some of Teresa's Christmas Tree Masterpiece's, and I invite you all to link up here on Tuesday with your own Christmas tree posts!

I hope you'll all join us for a week of Christmas festivities, friends, fun, and a cup of good cheer! Please look over our schedule of events and put them on your calendar. We look forward to seeing your posts!


Monday, Dec. 14 - Homemade Gifts - The best Christmas gifts come from the heart. Whether you sew, bake, paint, or glue, a homemade gift is always special and unique to those who recieve it. Come join us over at Tater Tots and Jello and share something that you've made, or share something that someone made for you.

Tuesday, Dec. 15 - Christmas Trees - It's so amazing to see all the different decorating styles people have out there. And we can't wait to see yours! Share some photos of your Christmas tree. Do you have a special theme? A favorite ornament? Post your link at A Baby Changes Everything.

Wednesday, Dec. 16 - Christmas Crafts - Christmas is a wonderful time for crafty people to show off their skills. Do you make your own Christmas decorations? Ornaments? Cards? Scrapbooks? Gingerbread Houses? Something else? Come on over to Blue Eyed Blessings and share your creations with us!

Thursday, Dec. 17 - Christmas Recipes - Food and the Holidays go hand in hand. Come and share your favorite Christmas recipes over at Simply Sweet Home. Whether it's an appetizer, a dessert, a drink, a side, or the main course, I'm sure we'll all be hungry for seconds!

Friday, Dec. 18 - Christmas Memories & Traditions - We all have our favorite Christmas stories, from the sweet and sentimental to the unforgettably funny. Tell us your favorite Christmas memory. Or tell us about a favorite Christmas Tradition that your family has. Then link up over at Tidy Mom.

Prizes, Prizes, Prizes!: We'll have several great prizes up for grabs at the Holly Bloggy! To qualify for the prize drawings, you must link up to our event(s) and leave a comment at the host blogs. Each time you do this you get an entry. (So for example, if you participate in Monday's event only, that's one entry. If you participate all 5 days, that's five entries.) At the end of the week, entries from all 5 events will be put together, and I'll do drawings for all the prizes.


Here are some of the prizes you could win:
