Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our November Holiday Blog Hop!
The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way).
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
This year I decided to try and make a December Daily and this is actually my first sneak of it. I will not make it the American Way and end it on the 25th, since that day has no specific meaning here in Norway. Either the album would end the 24th on Christmas Eve, but for me, thats just when Christmas begins, for me it doesn't end until New Years Eve. The days in between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve are in Norway called "Romjul" Then we finally have the family dinners and meet up with old cousins. My grandmothers birthday is on the 30th and she turns 91 years old, something we will celebrate. Traditionally kids would dress up these days and sing carols for candy, but the american tradition of Halloween have more or less taken over the going from door to door for candy and singing carols.
For a dose of holiday inspiration from our design team, just follow along the blog path. I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!

The Blog Hop starts today, November 26th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 27th.
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 28th on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products. If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
*Hop over to Zva's blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!
The blog hop begins at the Zva Creative's blog.
