4th Annual GGBC Craft-A Palooza!

Every December, we have a tradition here at The Geek Girls Book Club, and that is that December is about YOU.

Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, this time of year is jammed with stressors. Lines, weather, impatient people wherever you can put a huge cloud over the whole time of year.

So instead of having another thing to do, even as fun as reading a book, I want you to do something YOU WANT TO DO. Only catch? I want you to share what you did with us on one of our social media groups, or even here in the comments.

You want to learn to play the ukulele? Tell us what you did to make it happen. Learn poker? Dog training? The history of swords? Knitting? Painting? Photography? WHATEVER. Go and learn something awesome, make something crafty, and share what it is and what resources you used to do it. You may just give the rest of us something new we want to learn too! Need some inspiration? Look at our sister group, Geeks United In Crafts, the link for that is in the sidebar right here on the blog.
So choose your own adventure and give yourself the best present ever, TIME.

I know that a lot of you sweet Geeks are crafty folk, so I'm sharing here my Geek-A-Palooza guide for 2015. It is a brand new book by the adorable Joselyn Hughes, and it is AMAZING. This was just released November 3rd, but you can still request it at your local library, or get it from just about any book seller of your choice. I promise you will so dig it.

Find her at @joselynhughes on Twitter!

I cannot wait to see what you are all doing, and instead of waiting until the end of the month, you can feel free to post whenever you'd like, and as much as you'd like. Use #GGBC on Twitter, or post to our Facebook or Goodreads groups (links in the sidebar) or leave it here in the comments!

I hope that the end of 2015 finds you happy and well, and that you know how awesome you are to me and all of us here at GGBC. I can't wait to see your adventures in December, and get ready to start a whole new year! I'll see you in social media, checking your awesome ideas, I'll be the one holding a hot glue gun with glitter in my hair.
