Merry Maker Mingle 2023

Share the love!

Open a new gift from Jennifer every day for 25 days! Plus, you can enter for a chance to win fabulous prizes, including Cricut cutting machines, sublimation printers, gift cards, and more!

As a thank-you for your support and encouragement over the last seven years, I am sharing free patterns and inspiration for DIY projects, home decor, and gift ideas just for you during the 2023 holiday season! I call this project the Merry Maker Mingle 2023 and I do it every year. This is my virtual holiday countdown calendar filled with gifts for YOU!

How Does it Work?

Each day, beginning December 1, 2023, I present you with a brand new “gift” — a project to craft, make, or do. You can make these projects on a Cricut cutting machine, sublimation printer, or by hand if you don’t have one. Most of our Merry Maker Mingle projects will come with a fun video with yours truly, a step-by-step printable photo tutorial, and a free pattern/SVG cut file/sublimation design.

Each Merry Maker Mingle project “gift” should be ready to open by 7:00 pm ET each day, starting December 1, barring any technical difficulties. And around noon on many (but not all) days, I will broadcast a “mingle” on my YouTube channel and Facebook Page LIVE to open a day’s project, give you a preview of the evening’s project, unbox more cool stuff, and share some holiday cheer! Bookmark this page and return each day. Or just sign up FREE here and I’ll email your gift to you directly each day.

The “gifts” are all hidden in this winter paper village — each day I’ll reveal a new gift as I open the door to another house!
