Mad Hatter Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Gingersnap Creations' Mad Hatter Day Blog Hop and Blog Hop Stop #1!

Artwork by Lynn Stevens

Mad Hatter Day is an annual tribute to the beloved character from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. It is celebrated on either June 10th or October 6th depending on where you live as the date is derived from the "10/6" on his hat!

With all the great Alice things going on this year, we couldn't resist getting in on the fun!

As with our other blog hops, we're giving you a quote to unscramble along the way. Pick up a word or a hint at each stop and unscramble them to reveal a famous quote from Alice in Wonderland for a chance to win our Alice-themed package. One lucky winner will be drawn from the correct responses.

The package contains Alpha Stamps' Alice Tea Party Rubber Stamp Set, a single bird stamp (Crow on a Branch - also Alpha Stamps) and 3 Alpha Stamps Mad Hatter-themed collage pages.

Go to each blog in our loop, collect a word at Blog Hop Stops #2 through #9 and a hint to help you out at Stop #10, unscramble the words to reveal a quotation from Alice in Wonderland (the book not the movies) and email your guess to by June 25, 2010. Please include your name as well as your guess for the quotation in your email.

We try and keep things pretty simple so here's what you need to do:

1) Collect your first word at your next stop - Elina's blog.

2) At Elina's blog, she will also provide a link to your next stop. Follow the link to your next stop and repeat until you've made it through the whole loop.

3) Unscramble the quote and email your guess to along with your name by June 25, 2010. It's that simple!

Hop, stop, enjoy art, collect word, and hop again! You'll know you are on the right path as each of our blog stop hosts will be listing the previous stop as well as the next stop on the hop. If you visit all the stops, you should end up right back here at the end with 8 words and one hint!

We'll be announcing the one randomly drawn winner from the correct entries on June 29, 2010.
If you get lost, here's your route:

Stop #1 - Gingernsap Creations - You Are Here
Stop #2 - Elina Koutsouradi at Elina
Stop #3 - Hels Sheridan at Ink on My Fingers
Stop #4 - Jean Franks Beck at Bluebird Paperie
Stop #5 - Joanne Wardle at Made by Joanne
Stop #6 - Linda Ledbetter at Studio L3
Stop #7 - Lynn Stevens at Trash to Treasure Art
Stop #8 - Laura Liddell at As Happy As...
Stop #9 - Sharon Briss at Ill Tempered Ink
Stop #10 - Jennie at The Artistic Stamper

Look for our Blog Hop Stop badge along the way!

Have fun and we can't wait to get your quote entries! Remember you only have until June 25, 2010 to enter.

For even more fun, why not help us keep hopping?

Because we are "all about the share", we've added a linky so that you can add a link to your own Mad Hatter or Alice in Wonderland-themed creation! Better hurry before we run out of tea cups!


  1. How fun! When I saw that hat, Lynn was the first person who came to mind! Love the hat!!!!! I already have a rabbit done from when I made my Hubby's B-Day card, so maybe I will figure out what to do with him! Can't wait to see all the fun works of art!

  2. How about a second comment! That was so much fun and I could not believe the great artwork! E-mailed my quote, but just learning about where "mad hatter" came from was a prize! Good luck all!
