October Giveaway!

I haven't posted in a little while because it is the busy time of year at Molly O Designs. I don't know about anyone else, but this tends to be a stressful time of year for me. So I decided someone out in blogland needs a little pick-me-up.

We are giving away the adorable coffee cup holder and key chain shown in our previous post (actual fabric may vary) along with a $10 Starbucks gift card. We get emails all the time asking when we will have a Molly O Stylists in their area to teach Molly O classes. We are working on it, I promise! We just launched teachers in Virginia last week. So, we are working our way across the country.

But, until you have a chance to make these items yourself in a Molly O class, we thought we would give a few samples away to make sure everyone feels included.

All you have to do to register to win is leave a comment below about which Molly O class you would love to attend or your favorite class that you have already attended. If you need some ideas, just pop over to our site and click on Creatively Made. To the right you will see a list of our class categories. Look around and find something you like!

We will announce the winner next week and announce our next giveaway! And don't forget to join our newsletter for the latest Molly O news. There is a sign up box at the bottom of the blog.

Happy Fall everyone!

12 weeks until Christmas

Did I scare you? Because I am scaring myself! But with everyone on a tight holiday budget this year, I thought that we should start planning ahead!

The first thing to think about is whether you are going to buy or make most of your Christmas gifts this year. My plan is to make as much as I can for friends, neighbors, teachers and relatives. There are so many quick and easy gifts that you can make for very little money. My plan is to make a list, set aside a Saturday and just mass produce all my Creatively Made gifts.

Here is one of my favorite friend and teacher gifts! Our Coffee Holder and matching Key Chain. Just add on a coffee gift card and you have a fabulous, easy and affordable gift!

Over the next couple of weeks I will start posting photos of all my Christmas gift giving ideas. If you have been sitting on the fence about hosting a Molly O party, this is the time to schedule it. It is the perfect time to invite your friends over to start on your Christmas list! Plus, if you host the class then you get lots of freebies including your class fee, materials and discounts on anything else you buy that night.

We are also in the process of planning an all day Style session in Vegas. You will have the opportunity to take 3-4 classes plus create and design during an open session. Which means you could get your entire Christmas list taken care of in one day! If you are interested in attending, drop us a note so we can determine the level of interest.
