Just one sweet little year ago, Chocolate Creative Design had their very first Holiday Gift Guide. Disguised as the 12 days of Christmas, it was filled to the brim with some fabulous finds from
an AMAZING and talented crew of friends, colleagues and family.
Creatively energized, I was ready to take the guide one step further..I had a plan....A great plan...
Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months and low and behold it was the end of October!
Then I started receiving emails, emails that absolutely warmed my heart, from the amazing crew who participated in last years guide, passionately asking when...when oh when do we begin again??
Call me crazy, but didn't the holiday season start a tad bit early this year??
Sad to say...I had to begrudgingly hang up my mouse...
I have a plan....
A great plan...
So don't fret...there will be amazing things happening...
But for now....
I am honoring those AMAZING friends, family and colleagues who tirelessly and lovingly helped to create last year's gift guide
for a little ole blog who had just turned 5 days old.
So if you missed last years..
