Welcome to the 2022 MFY Holiday Countdown!
We wanted to create a countdown calendar that everyone would be able to participate in! Join us each day starting December 1st as we open a new day’s gift - especially for you!
How it Works
What can you expect you ask? There will be sales, downloads, freebies and more! Each day, we will unveil the next item. Some days will be one-day only and others will be available for a few days. Follow MFY on Instagram and Facebook, sign up for our newsletter, or check back here each day in December for details!

Individuals can earn a maximum of one entry per day the shop is open. A qualifying drop off consists of at least one pair of mittens or gloves. Winner will be announced on Monday, December 19th.
