There's going to be a new weekly feature here at Scribbit starting Wednesday October 3rd: The Winter Bazaar.
It can get pretty quiet up here you know--all that snow and darkness and hibernation--so each Wednesday from October through March I will post activities, decorations, games, recipes and crafts centered around a monthly theme and I've invited other blogs to participate. These ideas could be for children or adults, the only requirement is that they fit the seasonal topics:
* October - Halloween
* November - Thanksgiving Day or autumn
* December - Christmas or Hanukkah
* January - the new year or winter in general
* February - Valentine's Day or love
* March - Easter or spring
To participate, publish a post describing an activity on the monthly theme then come here to Scribbit and leave the permalink to the post (not the main blog URL) in the comments section of my Winter Bazaar post. I've chosen to do it this way so that participants have room to describe their ideas and promote their post and to make things even more fun, for this first month I'm offering a prize to a random participant. Each time someone leaves a link to their own Winter Bazaar idea (if they're a blogger) or leaves a comment (if they're a reader) their name goes into the pot, up to once a week. More on the prize next week.
Lucy at An Ordinary Mom and MG Wallace Designs were kind enough to create a banner for the occasion which participants can display on their blogs with the following code:

So see you here bright and early October 3rd with the first installment of the Winter Bazaar--I'm looking forward to see what great ideas everyone has to get me through six looooooong months of winter.
