Welcome to Two Uses Tuesday!
Hello there =) Are you ready for the holidays? I thought I was… it just snuck up on me. Most of the shopping is done and aside from the tree the house is as decorated as it’s going to get. Do you have any holiday organization tips?
We are on Week 11 of Two Uses Tuesday! Thank you to my returning friends/crafters and welcome to the newbies! Last week’s link up party had 23 posts shared… that seems to be where we’re topping off at. Can we beat it this week? Keep linking and sharing =)
1) Feel free to share your Christmas & New Year’s tradition posts =)
2) Beginning Week 12 (that would regularly post 12/23 at 8am EST) and for all following link ups:
- As of 12/22, Two Uses Tuesday will now be LIVE Mondays at 11pm EST!
3) Exclusive to Week 12:
- Week 12 will run for nearly 2 weeks: 12/22 11pm EST until 1/2/15 11pm EST
- Please share your Christmas & New Year’s tradition posts =)
- The Sarah’s Favorite pick will go to the person who shares the Week 12 party the most! Remember to use #2usestuesday or tag me on the platform you’re using.
I’ve been keeping busy with Christmas crafts and traditions. You can check out a few below. On tap for the next couple weeks: gingerbread house and ninja bread cookies!
Now on to more important things… YOU =)
This Week’s Featured Posts!!
You Clicked It To Pick It
If you’re like me, all that pretty Christmas scrapbook paper calls to you from the shelves in the craft stores. I don’t scrapbook, so… all that paper sits there, looking pretty. Until now! Kelly has found us a fun and simple origami tutorial. Some folds and snips bring us all that tree perfection you see above. Kelly added the glitter flair to the edges. Stop by Kelly’s blog to say hi and get the tutorial.

Sarah Celebrates Re-purposed Holiday Decor
Under my tree has been bare for years. I couldn’t find the right tree skirt or get myself to pay what stores wanted for them. Carolyn from CCMcAfeePerspective found away around the pricey store bought tree skirts with a re-purposed item: curtain panels! Whether you re-use old curtains you just couldn’t part with or you go buy a couple panels, it’ll probably still be cheaper. Carolyn got a few uses out of these curtain panels; curtains, tree skirt and photo shoot backdrops!
Hip-hip Hooray to this week’s featured bloggers!
Thank you for inspiring us to create! You’ve earned some bragging rights… Grab a button, tweet it to the world and watch for it on the Two Uses Tuesday FEATURES! board on Pinterest.
LINK UP RULES & GUIDELINES
BE CRAFTY & LINK UP
If you made it, I want to see it! This party has grown from just upcycling & repurposing projects to include all things DIY and craftiness. There is no limit to how many posts you link up but try to keep them something we haven’t seen before. Week 11 and 12 (this week and next week) I encourage you to share your Christmas and New Years traditions
Get inspired, get crafting and link up =)
COMMENT & CONNECT
Link up parties should be just that, a party. How can you help make it a party? Don’t link and run! Meet some of your fellow party goers via social media. Stop by at least 2 other links and comment on their posts. A tweet, +1 or pin is appreciated every now and then too. Two Uses Tuesday runs for 4 days… so pop back later and see who else showed up to the party. You might just find the inspiration you were looking for or perhaps, a new friend =)
Remember – for Sarah Celebrates Features, share & pin from the bloggers original content not from the Two Uses Tuesday post.
