  42. Jen says:

    I have the most ridiculous question ever: what does it mean to “grab our button”? Do you want me to link to the jpg from my blog? Or copy and paste it to wherever I host my blog images at? Put it in the sidebar? In a post itself? I know I’ve seen this request before, but I’m clearly in a fog because I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do in this instance.

    • Irene says:

      Jen- Yes to any of your suggestions! We’d love for our readers to promote another year of Handmade Holidays which ever way you’d like.

  46. Judi says:

    I tweeted 🙂

  47. Judi says:

    I would love to add the button to my blog but I don’t see an html code and I don’t know how to link it without one. Any advise?
