Winner, and 6th day tags!

So I PROMISED that I would be telling you about these darling tags I made to go a top my 12-Days of Christmas bags. Well here is what they look like. Kinda fun eh?

Now I know you are all wondering, how can I make them myself? WELL Today I am a guest blogger on Creating Keepsakes Blog! I thought it would be a wonderful idea to give back to all you wonderful and creative people and give you all the opportunity to download the pdf file to make these tags. The 12 days of Christmas is such a wonderful activity to really give to someone in need, so I really encourage you all to do it, even if you don't use my tag template :) click here to access CK's blog and to download the tags.

And now for another really exciting giveaway ... American Crafts has teamed up with me to give you all a special treat! It will be a sweet giveaway of their new Christmas Line by Elizabeth Kartchner. Please be sure to comment and I will be picking a winner by Friday Morning.

As for the winner of Everyday Memories ... It is {drum-roll please}

I love all the family time- extended and immediate. Decorating the tree, baking cookies, exchanging gifts.....all the traditions that bring the family together. Plus, all the beautiful pictures that come out of it!
Email me michelle so I can get you your issue of Everyday Memories! Congrats!

And for the 8th day of Christmas, we will be making this DARLING Gingerbread Choo Choo Train {As Bryce would call it}. He has a fetish with trains lately, so I figured he would be more excited about the train than the house ... And lets all remember that my kids are both under 2 years old ... WHAT am I thinking :)
Happy Holidays!

What a brilliant idea? I've done things like this in the past and the children and I will start emplementy this idea right away for our neighbor. He lost his wife in March of this year, and he's been having a very difficult time. This will hopefully give him some cheer knowing that others are thinking of you. k

Kathy Salazar said...

Oh what a wonderful memory- It reminds me of May Day when I was a child,sneaking around to leave a paper cone or basket full of fresh flowers for some unsuspecting neighbor- It is sad, but so many people don't even know what the day is or more importantly, the wonderful feeling of doing something nice for someone annonomously-

Lovely work!

brenda said...

Love the 12 days of Christmas gift idea and the tags are terrific! We are definitely going to have to try this one. I can't imagine trying the gingerbread train with 2 kids under 2!! My 9 year old was almost too much for me last year and the little boy I watch part-time is 19 months so I really can't picture it! Would love to hear how it turns out. Thanks for the chance to win the Dear Lizzy Christmas line

Jacqueline J. said...

I love your blog, I'm a new reader. That train gingerbread house is adorable! I tried making a house from a pre-made kit last year, and it was crazy. Huge mess, sugar and frosting on my nephew's face, in his hair, all over the furniture. But, we had a lot of fun and I have some great memories and pictures to scrap of that day!
