Blogmania Dream Team: Holiday Open House

Here in West Virginia we don't get a lot of snow, but our winters are still pretty messy. Even now that we're in the fall we're starting to see stuff tracking in. Our house has several huge pine trees in the front and while we know that conifers are generally evergreens, these trees definitely shed some serious pines.

Most people around here are pretty quick to take their shoes off when they come into someone's home. Of course, if you're anything like me, that means that your feet are likely to get cold pretty quickly. One suggestion that I've seen that I intend to do as the season gets colder and the holidays approach is to have a basket of slippers and warm socks available for folks as they come by for a visit. I want people to feel welcome in my home, and a nice pair of comfy socks or slippers can certainly add to that.

One of the things that the Blogmania Dream Team is doing this year is to host a really fun contest with a fantastic prize. All you need to do is to write a blog post with your own holiday ideas. Great recipes, fun party ideas, crafts, stuff for the kids, whatever works for you! Then just grab the button below and add the link to your blog any time from today through November 10th. You can do a new post every day during that time for additional entries. Good luck!

To sweeten the deal, I'm going to give away a pair of my hand-knit slippers to a reader who participates in this contest. When you leave your link here, leave a comment as well and that will enter you into the drawing for a pair of slippers!

(Also, don't forget to check out our Twitter party on November 6th for the Who's Who reveal -- find out if you're the lucky winner! Click here for more info and to RSVP.)
