I am thrilled to give you, dear readers and faithful followers, advance notice of a wonderful event to come on From My Carolina Home beginning on July 14th and lasting 12 days to the 25th. I’ll be taking you on a 12 Days of Christmas tour to get started ahead of time with ideas and tutorials for handmade gifts, table toppers, recipes, tablescapes, mini quilts, cards, crafts, wool applique, and even some ideas for the guys in your life. Some of the posts will link to projects I have published in previous Christmas seasons you may not have seen. Most will have new ideas.
It will be 12 days of fun and inspiration to help you get excited to begin making wonderful gifts and decor for your home, family and friends while we all have lots of time to get projects done before December. Plus I will be joining in a blog hop and having giveaways too! Ready to get a jump start on your projects for the holidays?
Now for the preview of what is to come over the those 12 days. I will have a giveaway or a freebie EVERY DAY at From My Carolina Home! Yes, something every day!! I have contacted a number of my favorite companies for sponsorships with giveaway items and other goodies, and I am delighted to share this wonderful line up of companies offering giveaways you could win! More details for the specific giveaway from each sponsor will be on the individual post. Most will ship internationally, so anyone can win!

And yes, most of the contests will be open to international entries! All drawings open on the day of the post for each individual giveaway. All entries close on July 24th at noon, winners will be notified by email, and announced on the blog July 25th.
Just so you know, these are not affiliate links, I do not receive any compensation from any of the sponsors of my Christmas in July event. I only contacted companies that I personally enjoy doing business with, and products I like to use.
I’ll be a stop on the first day of a blog hop too, coordinated by Sarah Craig who blogs at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. She is doing a quilt along over the 12 day hop so you can take just one hour a day to finish a flimsy of her design. She’ll have links to 25 bloggers with more Christmas ideas and tutorials!
Share this on all your social media sites, and tell your friends to follow my blog to see all the fun and ideas, and have many chances to win some fun prizes! It begins next Thursday July 14th!
