Wednesday Winners #90


Good Morning Fantabulous Friends!  

Wow, I can't believe it!  Christmas is almost here (for those of us who celebrate).  This year is a difficult year for many money-wise so my family has decided not to celebrate with gifts.  It sure eased a lot of the holiday stress, but I must admit, giving and receiving gifts can be pretty fun. ;)  I've decided to make my hubby's family some 8x8 albums for my new nephew, who is two months old.  I think handmade gifts are the way to go!  I would LOVE to hear what you all are doing for the holidays and if you will be exchanging gifts.  I'm especially curious about handmade gifts that you may be giving to family and friends.  Please leave a comment here and tell us about it!

So of course, last week's challenge, "Rolling in Ribbon" was created for the holiday season.  We had some awesome entries and how 'bout those awesome projects by the DT?  If you missed out, you'll want to check them out HERE.

I want to say thanks to everyone who participated and thanks to our sponsor, My Craft Spot who not only provided the challenge "candy", but also provided some goodies for some of our DT members to use!  Not only do they have great ribbon, but their twine is amazing too!  I know this, cause I bought some. ;)  Be sure to check them out if you haven't already!  The link is below...

  2. My in-laws are getting an "after-Christmas" present. :) I am doing a mini album of our December/Christmas activities. My husband and I are exchanging gifts, but it is only a few things and it was stuff that we *really* needed or wanted-like some new scrappy tools for me and new work boots & shirts for him. I made scarves and hats for the kids. We try to stock up on gifts all year when they go on sale/clearance so that we don't have to spend alot of money. Two years ago, they got LOTS of pool/summer toys that we got for 90% off at the end of the season.

  3. A few years ago we quit buying for everyone, in the family. We started playing "dirty santa". (it has a few different names) It is so much fun! Everyone that wants to play brings a gift that cost $20. We pick numbers from tickets that have been handed out. When it's your turn, you may choose a gift or "steal" a gift that someone has already opened! Everyone from Grampa and Grandma to my teens, love it. This will be the third year we are playing. Happy Holidays!
