12 Days of … Day 1

12 Days Of-2018

12 Days Of-2018Well, here we are the first day of the 12 Days of … at Seams To Be Sew. I must say it was fun to read your comments from the last post with your guesses. I had some really good chuckles. 🙂

So, today is the day, to find out the theme, grab the first pattern and then come back on Monday for the next pattern to come.

So, let me talk about why I chose the theme I did, and perhaps you’ll understand why it’s so special to me this year.

First, I love Winter. it’s my favorite time of the year. Not because of Christmas, or the New year, or even Valentine’s Day, but because of the snow. I love love love snow. I get very disappointed and discouraged when we’ve had winters without any or very little snow.

As a child, and because when it snowed in Idaho Falls, it wasn’t just an inch of snow and then gone, it lasted for weeks and there were so many fun things to do. I loved shoveling the sidewalk and driveway, I loved making Snow Angels, going tubing, skating, and making Snowmen. So, in my hope for Snow this year… I am hoping for 12 days of Snow.. thus my theme for this year is Snow, the wonderful world of the beautiful white ground cover that comes during Winter. I am optimistic this year, I know we are due for a major snowstorm here in Colorado Springs. 🙂

So, when I said I had left many clues just hanging about, I have, over the years, I’ve mentioned how much I love Winter, and snow, and the logo and the header for 12 days this year more than shows what the theme of this year’s event is. 🙂 Many of you were very close to what it truly is. However, there is more than just snowmen to this theme. 🙂

Coming Friday… 12 Days Of!!!

12 Days Of-2018

12 Days Of-2018Of the many events, I host each year, this one is probably my favorite. This is my 4th year doing the 12 Days event, I’d like to say it was my 5th, but the first year I really only gave away a few patterns at the first week in December. I’d only had my blog open at that time for about 9 months and had very little activity on it at the time. It wasn’t until the following year when I’d participated in many blog hops that I got the idea to do a 12-day event. I can promise you this, it is fun and at the same time by the time it’s almost done with, I’m ready for it to be over. This year will not be any different, but this year also I’m very happy about the theme I’ve chosen for this years 12-Days event. I’ve done trees as a theme (that was my first one), I’ve done ornaments and figures for a combined wallhanging Janeen and I did the second year, last year I did my favorite things for Christmas as a theme. This year I’ve chosen something else that is a favorite of mine, but it doesn’t necessarily have a Christmas theme to it. It goes with Christmas, but it’s not Christmas oriented. 🙂

Can you guess what my theme is this year? I’ve left plenty of clues, maybe you can figure it out before Friday starts and I’d love to hear what you think the theme is.. Please leave me a comment, if you guess it, I’ll answer you back in email… if not I guess you’ll wait till Friday to figure it out. 🙂

12-Days 2014 is the first event I ever held on my blog as an event that was exclusive to my blog, so it will always hold that magical place in my heart.

Other blogs do special things at this time of the year also, I will note them in this post and each day of the event also.

This post is mainly posted to let you know how it works. If you’re new to my blog it will be important for you to read this post.  Continue reading
