Season's Givings Blog Hop

Hi everyone, and happy 2014! Welcome to the Season's Givings Blog Hop!


Latisha Yoast came up with a great idea to share our new/unused crafty supplies--to have a blog hop and give the supplies away to people hopping. I love this idea!

I'm so thankful for the blogging community. I know everyone is busy, and it means a lot to me that people take the time to stop by. I wanted to do the giveaways as a thank you!

Here is a home decor project I made for the new year:

Look Ahead J. Olson


In my guest post at Moxie Fab World, I shared some embroidery hoops, and I *finally* made one using a paper background. I loved using paper since I could watercolor on it. I have a photo tutorial, which I'll be sharing later this week.

I CASE'd some of my prior cards for this hoop (THIS, THIS, and THIS). I painted the outer frame of the hoop and then on the cardstock background, I watercolored with mists. I fussy cut the flowers from Webster's Pages' New Year New You. I used some Webster's Pages, Crate, and Cosmo Cricket papers and vellum for the die cut hearts, and I stitched through some of them. The sentiment was made in Photoshop. Here's a close-up:


Look Ahead J. Olson CU

I really need to adjust the tension on my sewing machine. ;)

I've been fortunate enough to win some extra supplies, and I'm thrilled to be passing them on! I have three giveaways for three winners. If you enter once, you're entered into all three:

Giveaway 1: I won a Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit, but I had the stamps and papers. I added some Studio Calico Mistables and extra Papertrey Ink white cardstock. 


Giveaway 2: There is a BasicGrey paper pack and some Crate Paper embellishments I won. I've added two stamp sets, Smooch Spritz, ribbon, washi, buttons, and wood veneers. 


Giveaway 3: There is a Stampin' Up paper pack, Graphic 45 paper pad, chalk cardstock, two stamp sets, rub-ons, BasicGrey brads, Thicker, washi, tags, and ribbon. 


Here's the scoop: 1) You can leave a comment for a chance to win. 2)For a second chance, you can "follow" my blog and leave another comment to let me know if you already follow or are a new follower. You can follow my blog by clicking Google's "Join this Site" on the sidebar and/or following by e-mail.

The giveaway will end at 6am ET on 1/6, and I'll announce winners later that night. Also, I'm happy to pay for international shipping.

The people/companies below are all offering different giveaways. To enter, all you have to do is go to their blogs, leave comments, and you'll be entered:

Jocelyn Olson <--You are here

Next in the hop is my sweet friend Isha.
