Join us for Falliday Fest!

image It's that time of year - the season that crafters relish - the fall and winter holiday season. Crafty people rule supreme, and we are much sought after for our mad skills at cardmaking, decorating tables, making treat containers, and producing adorable teacher gifts to guarantee that favorite student status.

It's also the time of year here at Splitcoast when we have historically hosted our largest site event - Hope You Can Cling To, which started in 2010. People just love to be busy prepping for the holidays around this time, so in 2016, we are changing things up a bit to focus on the holiday crafting season as an encouragement to get some of our holiday crafting done early! Welcome to Falliday Fest!

You'll find the challenge aspect of Falliday Fest will be very similar to Hope You Can Cling To, but with some fun crafty differences thrown in. We are featuring our traditional Holiday Tutorial Blitz with this event to spark holiday crafting ideas! For two glorious weeks, we'll share ten amazing holiday tutorials, exciting challenges and helpful holiday crafting tips to help you streamline your projects for the coming season. Do you have a tip that makes your holiday crafting easier? Share it with us here.

Over the last six years, you've shown us your generosity in sending cards for a cause. That is a beautiful thing about the giving heart of the Splitcoaststampers community, so we are looking forward to giving again this year. We will take four days during Falliday to feature wonderful card drives for you to support, in the Hope You Can Cling To spirit. In the end, you'll be ahead on your holiday crafting and have a few cards to share with one or more of our featured drive recipients.

This festive event will have some very cool surprises along the way as well, so stay tuned. It will have its own forum inside the Challenge Forum, which we will open in October. The event will begin on the 9th and we will begin teasing you before you know it.

Will there be prizes? You bet.

The Holiday Tutorials will be a present in your email inbox during Falliday Blitz, as well as a few other surprises exclusively by email, so you will want to sign up for our special event email list here. This is ONLY used for communicating about Splitcoast events, and your email will not be shared with anyone.

Let's make the fall a colorful, kind and crafty season, shall we?

I am in such a Christmas Card making mood! I just went to Hobby Lobby where they are all decked out with items for Christmas crafting and home decorating. And what about Anna Griffin on HSN. In fact I received my Christmas order from them today, already (only ordered it 4 days ago.) Now all I need is some inspiration and discipline to get going.

Last year was my first time participating in HYCCT and it was incredibly fun. I am really excited about Falliday, too. I love that it is holiday-themed but still with a chance to craft with a purpose.
