2nd Annual New Year's Eve Streamathon

Hey there everyone.  I am so excited that our 2nd Annual New Year's Eve Streamathon is approaching.  Where has the time gone?  Once again we will be celebrating 2014 in most of the time zones beginning in the land down under...  

Jen (Ozegran) has set up a Facebook page and if you have not done so yet go over and sign up.  We will be posting updates and links to streamers blogs so you can get supply lists for all the projects.  We hope you play along or at least join us to chat.  

Did someone say prizes?  Many of the streamers will be drawing for prizes during their stream.  But we also have a number of very generous major prizes donated by craft retailers and individuals.  This year, in order to qualify for the major prizes, you must register here.  Please read the guidelines carefully before registering.  

And who, besides me, is streaming you ask?  Well we have a lineup of amazing artists and crafters presenting a variety of projects from fibre arts to paper arts and who knows what else!  Keep your eye out on the Facebook page as there will be links posted between now and New Year's eve so you can get a glimpse at the projects ahead of time.  Jen has created a PDF showing the time blocks with conversion tables to show who is streaming and when.  

Next I am going to share with you my project.  I will be welcoming 2014 as it arrives here in Riverview, New Brunswick, Canada.  My stream will be from 11:30pm -12:30am Atlantic time zone (10:30 - 11:30 EST or GMT - 4 hours).  I know, I know, many people don't even realize that Canada has 2 extra time zones than the US, mine and Newfoundland, which is actually a half hour ahead of me! So as my stream begins, it will just be turning New Years in St. John's and the rest of "The Rock", as NFLD is lovingly called. 

This year I am doing a variation on my project from last year.  I have designed a Desk Calendar/Organizer.  Fancy name huh?  I am going to post links below to the pattern which includes a supply list and a PDF for the 2014 calendar we will be adding to the organizer.  

Here is a photo of my completed sample....  This is just the prototype....  

If you wish to play along, download the pattern and have your chipboard and card stock pieces cut and labeled and the calendar printed on cover stock or card stock and trimmed.  Or you can just chat and watch and create it later - or not!  It is totally up to you!

Hope to see you all as we ring in 2014!
