More details? You girls are greedy! Well, I was invited by Matthew to be a part of this amazing new Christmas project. I have admired him for years, have blogged about him numerous times and my sucking up apparently finally paid off! I hope that will be a lesson to you. Also, let me tell you a tiny little secret. You have to promise not to tell Matthew. I almost didn't say yes. Which is to say I almost said no. Insane right? I almost let fear get in the way. But this is the new me so I said yes! Yes I will! Even though I'm not feeling particularly creative with everything I have going on in my life right now. Stupid or brave? I'll let you decide. You know what happened after I said yes? My creativity kicked in. At about 3:30am of course, but it kicked in. Now I have several ideas I'm toying with and thinking that Matthew will be saying "Oy! This isn't Holiday with Jen Kershner!" So let that be a lesson to you. Say yes even when you're thinking no. Be brave even when you're thinking scared. 

And now for the really great news! You have a chance to be a part of this process too. Here's how:
