Good Monday! Gosh! It’s the 20th of December! Do you know what that means!? Only 3 more days until my birthday! LOL Yep, I am one of those lucky individuals who celebrates their birthday at Christmas time. On the one hand, there are always a lot of pretty lights and music, family and feast and a lot of ‘good will’ on my birthday. On the other hand, many of my friends go out of town for the holiday. Plus, it falls when everyone is out of school for the holiday and isn’t around to help me celebrate. No ‘mom brings cupcakes and punch to school for your class’. Mine was spent with family more than anyone else and that was fine. There were several years that my family and I were traveling on my birthday. We would go to visit my sister for Christmas. I awoke several birthday mornings in a motel with my family. On more than one occasion I was told about some neat toy I had wanted, but, that I would have to wait until we returned home to get it – it was too big to bring with on our road trip to my sister’s. Though I can appreciate the family getting together, I totally think children should be in their own homes for the Christmas morning.
There are some really fun things going on online for the holidays. I’ve been collecting all kinds of goodies! Sophisti-Scraps has their annual 17 Days of Christmas”, which, based on previous years, is always a real treat! Then, Sandy Crea has a gift a day until Christmas. The offerings are absolutely marvelous! Each day there is a big bright present posted. You click on the link and it is just like getting a present! LOL The goodies are such fun! The links are still up, too. I’m sure you’ve found some more fun Christmas “dailies”. They’re neat!
Alrighty! Today is the third and final installment of my collaboration with Miss Edna, “Visions of Sugar Plums.” The previous two(2) releases, parts 1-4 of this kit are still up. See the previous posts. We give out 2 parts of our kit each in a release, so, today will be parts 5 and 6, the final. Miss Edna and I got a kick out of doing this fun kit. You’ve got to get this one! My parts’ links are below the previews. After you get those, head over to Miss Edna’s Place and collect her final 2 parts. Her preview is clickable for her blog.
I intend to be back before the big day with a little pressy for all. Until then,
SMILE! It’s all the rage – EVERYWHERE!
