The Wacky Watercooler Welcome 2015 Blog Hop

Welcome to our first of 2015 Blog Hop!  It's a brand new year, a brand new Occasions Catalogue, and a brand new Sale-a-bration.  That's a whole lot to celebrate!

We had so much fun with our last blog hop and so much positive response that we've decided to arrange this blog hop along the same lines.  There are some differences, of course, but like last month, this blog hop is set up as three challenges we've given ourselves.

The first challenge is based on our favourite from a past blog post.  Each of us had a name drawn and that was the person whose blog posts we searched to find what we each considered "our favourite" for that person.  To make it more interesting, it had to have been a past post showcasing either the Occasions Catalogue or that year's Sale-a-bration.  Of course our interpretation could use current products.

The second challenge is based on our favourite Occasions/Sale-a-bration product this year.  With some of the wonderful products available in this year's catalogues, it will be interesting to see what each of the blog hop participants consider their favourite.

The final challenge is based on each individual's favourite from the current or clearance products (or a mixture of the two).  There are some real treasures to be found in the Clearance Rack and the posted projects may just show you why a visit could be worth the time.

As usual, our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion.  No matter where in the list of participants you begin, inevitably you'll wind up in the exact same place again if you keep going to the "next" blog.  It works the same way whether you conform to the usual forward movement through the blog posts or if you're a rebel and work your way through in reverse order.

This month we have nine participants from various spots in the United States and Canada.  As a result, you'll see a lot of different and diverse projects since we are all affected by our surroundings.

And now, without further ado, here is our list of participants in order of appearance:

          Priscilla Ivler

          Marsha Reed

          Kath Ricks

          Terri Antoniw

          Christine Giuda

          Heidi Weaver

          Marie Green

          Stefanie Pletscher

          Deborah Smart

That's nine of us!  We hope you'll take the time to check out everyone's post and if you get a moment, to leave a comment because that is the icing on the cake of our Blog Hops.
