2009 YLGAL (at our new home)

Happy New Year Gifters!

You have done such an amazing job this year - you've totally convinced me that there is a BIG place left for the art of the handmade gift. Thank you for your enthusiastic participation - and congratulations on the wonderful finishing you've done!! I know it's not easy to stay the course for a whole year, but many of you gave it an honest try.

I used a short survey as a way to decide where to house our group in 2009. I wanted the administration components to be manageable, and I wanted participants to have easy access to the discussions and postings we all love. The overwhelming majority vote was for us to move this group 100% to Ravelry. I know that not everyone who has been using this blog has a Ravelry account, so if you don't yet - sign up is quick and very easy! You can email me directly if you need help getting signed up.

To continue gifting all year long with us in 2009, go to the YLGAL Ravelry group and click the "Join this Group" button in the top right corner of the main page. You'll find much of the same discussions there that we've been maintaining here - Monthly Goal Lists, Quarterly Challenges, and more suggestions and links for great gift ideas.

As always, reach out with your questions and suggestions. This year - invite a friend to gift-a-long with you too!

'Tis blessed to bestow, and yet,
Could we bestow the gifts we get,
And keep the ones we give away,
How happy were our Christmas day!
