Thoughtful Celebrations

Gifting and celebrating go hand in hand.  After all, we usually gift to celebrate an occasion. For me, the gift is part of the celebration and, perhaps more importantly, the celebration is part of the gift. I'm looking for posts that share interesting or unique family traditions, cultural traditions,  or thoughtful + simple gifting as part of a celebration. 

Your Submission Should Include:
(+) 3-4 high quality original photos documenting the celebration or tradition 
(+) 300-500 words describing the celebration or tradition
(+) A brief bio and photo (to be used in the feature)
(+) Links to your shop, blog & all social media sites that you would like shared.

Your Submission Should Include:
(+) 4-6 high quality original photos documenting the project or tutorial
(+) 300-500 words describing your project, including a materials list and step-by-step instructions for tutorials.  
(+) A brief bio and photo (to be used in the feature)
(+) Links to your shop, blog & all social media sites that you would like shared.
