Hey Kelly,
Just stopping by to introduce myself. I got involved a little late in the blogging sisters group. Alana saved a spot from me as I was the first to talk to her when she was looking for some friends. I don't see my blog on your blogroll. Hi Sister. I was out of town last week and am finally getting around to meeting all of you!

Your stuff rocks! My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the tree. We actually have two this year (white down stairs, green upstairs), and both are ornament-less. I'm still trying to decide what colors I want with my new trees. We're still trying to adopt some new traditions...
Take care

G'day from Sunny Western Australia. I'd love to win- I have flourishes on my Christmas wish list and I have been such a good girl.
I buy my boys a Christmas ornament each every Christmas, and when they leave home they will have a set to start off their own tree, hopefully with lots of wonderful family Christmas memories attached to them.

Hi Kelly. I'm a great fan. I'll give you two traditions, one old and one new. This tradition has been in place for nine years. Every December, my mother-in-law and I get together and make Christmas candy - peanut butter and chocolate fudge, buckeyes, chocolate covered pretzels, hard candy, pumpkin rolls and more! Here is a tradition that started this year. My mother, sisters and I got together for a weekend in November to make all of our Christmas cards. We're hoping to do this every year.

wow. on to other things...

My favorit thing on your blog is your use of that fat shiny ribbon. It's really cute.

Christmas tradition: We have Christmas HERE every year. Wherever is my home, that's where the party's at. I'm trying to convince the family we can't do presents until the dinner is eaten and cleaned up. So far no dice on that one.

Christmas traditions in this house are many. Last year we started a new one; new for us. We do not go to church on a regular basis but last Christmas Eve we decided we would go to the candle light service at the Historic Baptist church in town. It was so special. It is at the top of list of holiday things to do now. We will take our 3 year old Granddaughter with us this year.
Happy Holiday!

Hi! I just started a blog a couple of weeks ago and came across yours yesterday. I immediately impressed with your cards and projects, they are beautiful!!

As far as holiday tradition goes.... I am starting a new one this year!! When I was young we always made most of the ornaments and decorations at Christmas time. These are great memories I have of my childhood.... somewhere between then and now I have gotten caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays and have lost what is most important.... quality time with my family. This year we are going back to the simpler times....

Please put my name down to win this and thanks for being so generous.

The Christmas tradition I love the best is for when we have a huge family breakfast on Boxing day with 50 plus people coming (not all family but also some who don't have anywhere else to go) It is great to catch up and give presents - no we don't give to everyone but pick a name out of a hat the year before. We do buy for the littlies if we choose to. We all contribute to the breakfast menu. Afterwards those who want head off to the movies.

Great blog candy. I have been looking for that reindeer stamp. I hope I win. I love your blog and check it out everyday. You inspire me, and I'm sure others, with your talent. My favorite Christmas tradition is visiting both sets of parents on Christmas eve. We eat at both homes and really feel like pigs by the time we get home. Then we let the children open one present before bedtime. They have us up bright and early the next morning to open the rest. Thanks again, Mary Campbell

When our children were small we would put on Christmas music and decorate the tree and then have hot chocolate and enjoy each other and the tree. I hope they carry it on with their own families.

Now this is cool - you're giving away sets that I actually do not own yet! And you're a Numb3rs fan, too? Neat! Christmas tradition - lots of cookies, and playing cards with my family. We all play as though it's a big competition, but nobody actually cares who wins. It's all about time to chat with each other.

We have many Christmas traditions, and on the top of our list is to sit close with each other (my husband and myself) and watch our favorite Christmas DVDs. We have 5 that we watch every year (and no, we arent'tired of watching them yet and it's been 21 years!).

Hi Kelly....
Since joining splitcoast a few months ago I have always been drawn to the cards/creations that you post there and eventually ended up here. I don't even know what fourishes are but I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy stopping by your blog and seeing what you've created.
Some of our Christmas traditions include attending a Christmas Eve service at church, baking cookies with my girls for Santa, and going to Mimi's to open our Polly-Anna gifts which can take quite a long time with 25 people.. whew! Oh, and I do like a little eggnog and bourbon after that family affair! Ha!

We have a lot of things that could be referred to as "traditions." We LOVE it when it gets dark out before dinner. We turn the tree lights on and shut off all the other lights and enjoy the colors of the tree and how it lights the room. There's cookie making, movies, shopping and of course the family stuff.
