It Takes a Village: Part 1

This is the week I finally get to spill the beans about the big project I have been working on for the last six months! I am SO EXCITED FOR THURSDAY! I have to admit that I am running on no sleep and WAY too much caffeine right now, so please forgive any typos, excessive exclamation points or general hyperactivity. :)

Launch Party

You're invited to join Kathy Orta Files, Jim Hankins and me on YouTube LIVE at 9:00 p.m. Eastern USA time this Thursday, October 10, 2013 for the launch of something truly epic:
This broadcast replaces my usual Thursday night Scrap Chat. Euro Chat is cancelled this week so you gals and guys overseas can take naps to rest up for the big reveal. :)
I will be your host for the evening, and you'll see me on camera in a way you've NEVER seen me before! I promise you will love everything we have in store for you, but to sweeten the deal there will also be some fabulous prizes. Sign up for your chance to win at the end of this post, and then visit Kathy Orta Files at Paper Phenomenon and Jim Hankins at The Gentleman Crafter for more chances to win!
Please bookmark the event link and mark your calendars. You won't want to miss an exciting evening of news, chatting and prizes. :)  To convert 9:00 p.m. Eastern USA time to your time zone, click here:
For more details leading up to this event, please like me on Facebook: Kathryn's Facebook.

It Takes a Village!

To celebrate the upcoming launch party, Kathy Orta Files at Paper Phenomenon, Hankins at The Gentleman Crafter and I have collaborated on a three part project series. Visit each of our blogs today, tomorrow and Wednesday to see video tutorials of our Christmas village buildings!
Jim will walk you through his fabulous shop (complete with window display), Kathy will show you how she built her lovely church and I have a tutorial below with an adorable little cottage.

The House

Take a look at this cute little house - I just loved how it turned out! (BeachMum has already claimed it for a potential sheep habitat - LOL!)
I filmed this house coming together for my YouTube channel. You can watch the video below, or click this link to watch it over on YouTube: Christmas Cottage, Part One.

Thanks for watching & sign up below for a chance to win some really cool prizes during Thursday's launch party! See you there!
Kathryn :D
