Going Through the Era's Blog Event

I'm so excited to be announcing next years HUGE blog event! Going Through the Era's by: Cooking, Crafting, & Sewing! But we will be doing much more than that. In fact, there is going to be a theme for each day of the week for 5 weeks!! Yes, this blog event is going to last for 5 weeks! Isn't that amazing!?! If someone does every day for 5 weeks I'll be surprised. *grin*

Saturday - Matinee Saturday {Do movie reviews of movies from the era. Share your favorite Actors/Actresses, fun movie trivia, etc....}

Random Notes/Rules
In January and/or February I'll share some resources that you can use for ideas for some of the daily themes.

You can NOT use old posts for this event. You CAN use old sewing projects, cooking/baking, just have to write up a new post for this event.  

Please keep your pictures & outfits clean and modest.

You can start doing some of the things for the event now. Start your sewing project, cooking/baking recipes, etc... and if you finish before the event starts you can write your post and have it scheduled to post during the event on the correct day. Like, if you are going to miss part of the event and it is your favorite era{s}. Do the event now and just have your posts go up in March/April.

Everyday there is going to be a linky box in each day's of the week theme post. You will then link the POST, for that day into the linky. I will keep the linkys up until the middle of April.

I'm hoping to have at most two giveaways a week. I would really like it if the item donated for the giveaway goes with the theme of the event and week the giveaway is hosted, if possible. If you are interested in sponsoring a giveaway send me an email: bramblewoodfashion {at} hotmail {dot} com.

If you have any questions either email me, tweet me, leave a post on FB, or simply leave a comment. I'll try to get back with as soon as I can.

Now, I need everyone's help on spreading the word. Please take one of the buttons I made a post them on your sidebar {all of the buttons are posted here}. Blog, tweet, pin, tumble, Facebook, Google Buzz, etc... about the event! Tell your favorite bloggers who might be interested in this event. Tell your friends. Well, I think y'all get the idea. *smile*
