Welcome to DIY Day! Are you ready to share your latest project?

If you’re new here, every Tuesday we get together to share our newest DIY projects. I’m really flexible about what constitutes a DIY project. A furniture makeover, an outdoor project, an indoor project, some new artwork…heck, even a great recipe could qualify as DIY, right?

Today’s DIY Day is being sponsored by my friend, the North Pole Secretary! You may know her as The Pretty Organizer from her blog, but she’s recently been hired as Santa’s personal secretary. (Mamas, Grandmas and Aunties, you want to pay attention here!)

As the North Pole Secretary, she will send your child a beautifully personalized letter directly from Santa Claus himself! These letters are wonderfully customized for each child using details like their name, toy requests, friends and pet names and the town where you live. Each letter is postmarked from the North Pole (Alaska), so you’ll need to place your order by 12/10 to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas.

The best part is that each letter also discusses the true meaning of Christmas….Caring, sharing and one little Baby who made it all possible.

The North Pole Secretary is offering a special price of only $6.00 per letter for my readers! So if you’re interested, place your order quickly! What child wouldn’t LOVE hearing directly from Santa Claus this year. You can visit North Pole Secretary to see samples of all the letters and to place your order.

And YES! There is a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive FREE personalized Santa Claus letters for all the children in their family (even if the Dugger family wins) AND a package of Santa’s world famous Hot Cocoa and mini whisks! What could be better? A letter from Santa and some hot cocoa. Sounds divine to me!

All you have to do is a link up a post to DIY Day this week and you could win!

Just a couple of guidelines to help things run smoothly.

  1. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog. I HATE having to delete these. It makes me feel like a big meanie.
  2. Include a short description of your DIY project in parenthesis after the name of your blog. This helps people browse the HUGE number of projects. And you get MORE clicks!
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.

Now let’s see those projects!

Oh, what a lovely givaway this week!
I hope a big family’s mom wins!
Here in Canada the kids can write directly to the north pole (zip code: HOH OHO!) And they get a semi-personalized letters back.
What’s great about this is that they are filtred by psychologist and if one kid tells about problems in his family, he will be referred to the social services. Seems like it helps TONS of kids…

thanks for hosting again, Kimba!

My daughter has written to santa 2x already this year. She check the mail everyday to see if he wrote back. This is a great idea to guarantee she gets a letter back this year.

I don’t see the McLinkly as usual??? Is something different this time? I don’t see any other links either…. All this is till kind of new to me so I may be looking right at it and not understanding what to do??

17 stacy December 1, 2009 at 10:27 am

btw, here’s my link.

I want to be able to see all the other links though too, and I can’t πŸ™

18 stacy-sleepyhead designs December 1, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Still can see anything other than the McLinky logo??? I emailed them to see if they might know what the problem is. It’s also doing this to me on Today’s Creative Blog. Well, I’m done messing with it for now–I’ve got ur button posted on my link.
