All the items on the blog train are fun little hybrid projects. I decided on CD covers. I have a holiday photo cd that certain members of my family are receiving. Since I was making covers for them I thought it would be fun to make covers for the blog train as well. Enjoy!
Let's see. A little about the holiday traditions in my family. Actually, we're not really a tradition kind of family. Growing up we always spent the holidays at my grandmother's house. But as me and my sister got older we stopped doing that. It was sometime the highschool that we stopped doing it all together. We lost my grandmother this year and I miss that now. Actually now we have Thanksgiving Dinner at my house. It was very difficult the first year. I spent most of the morning going back and forth from the grocery store trying to get all the things I forgot. Now, I can get it all in one trip. My family is pretty surprised that I host it in the first place. Any other day of the year I moan and complain about cooking and then my husband ends up doing it. But for this one day I'll spend the entire day in the kitchen cooking, no complaints.
Christmas is different. No cooking for me that day. We either go to my mom's or my inlaws. But for Christmas there is a small tradition that my sister and I shared that I now share with my children. My sister and I got out of that wait until you wake up on Christmas morning to open your presents situation. I think I was ten the first time I asked my mom if we're awake at midnight can we open our presents. Her answer was yes so me and my sister stayed up. Opened our presents at midnight, spent maybe and hour playing and then going to sleep. I let my children do this for the first time last year. I didn't think they would be able to stay away, but they could and they did. We'll continue with it this year.
Quite a few of the designers are offering a grab bag this weekend. I'm no different, but I'm not calling mine a grab bag. It's simply a Grabber. Only $3.00. Included in this grabber is 5 brand new products!
Well, as some of you can guess I'm off shopping for those great deals. When I get in this afternoon I have another entry for you. I need to introduce you to my Brand New Keepsake CT. I also want to show you what they can do.
