Onwards and Upwards Announcement and Giveaway!

Edited to say: This is an older post. If you are looking for the start of the Onwards and Upwards event, you need to click HERE!

Today I want to tell you about my next (completely free!) blog event! Keep reading for details, and to enter to win a prize package of Fancy Pants Trendsetter!

Onwards and Upwards Blog Event  at Jennifer Grace Creates!

The ‘Onwards and Upwards’ weekend will take place right here on Friday 10th – Sunday 12th May 2013. Posts will go live every hour from 4pm – 10pm Friday, and then 10am – 10pm Saturday and Sunday (BST), with a mix of giveaways, tutorials, challenges, inspiration, a blog hop, and more! The event graphics above show you a glimpse at some of the projects that will be featured, and the prizes that will be given away. But there will be more, lots more!

The theme for the weekend is loosely inspired by my word of the year ‘Progress’ (see my word of the year layout here). However, ‘Onwards and Upwards’ is about all kinds of things, including: hopes and dreams, resolutions and goals, uplifting quotes and sentiments, travel, trying new things, positive reinforcements, finding direction, or just looking to the skies for subject matter or embellishments (clouds, planes, birds, hot air balloons, and more)!

I hope you’ll be able to join me for the weekend! The giveaways will stay open until Monday (13th May 2013) at 10.59pm BST, so if you’re away for the weekend you’ll have Monday to try and catch up! The challenges will be open until the following Sunday (19th May 2013) too!

There will be a PDF download available after the event, featuring all the highlights from the weekend, so you can keep them all at hand for future reference (the PDF from the last event, Frosty Festivities, is HERE if you missed it!).

To encourage you to share news about the event, here’s a giveaway for you! You could win this prize pack of Fancy Pants Trendsetter:
