Reader's roundup

This one is from Debbie.
You can visit her blog Debbiesdayz.
Her journaling:
This photo you have seen before, it was taken at the annual village 'Carols around the Maypole' event in our village. Really, until this has happened, I don't feel fully in the Christmas spirit, so for me and my family, this is a real tradition of Christmas.

Thanks Debbie!

Over to you

If you, our loyal followers and readers have any ideas I would love to hear from you.
I am keen to compile a list of links to challenge blogs, sketch blogs, other scrapping inspirational blogs, photography blogs etc.
I would also love to hear any comments you have, suggestions or challenges to set before the uber talented design team and if you're gentle I'll take criticism too.
We haven't had any participation in the last couple of month's challenges, if there is a reason for that and maybe changes I could make I'm open to that too. How much does a prize or RAK influence your participation?
I am happy to continue to provide inspiration as we have been but if there are ideas to increase readership and participation and suggestions for challenges please let me have it.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year with many blessings and a better year than the one we are wrapping up.

Title: Oh, Christmas Tree!
I love watching the boys decorate the tree each year.
They really make the Christmas Spirit fill our hearts.

Helen's challenge 71.



I do my best to trim the tree & decorate our home as early in December as possible even tho' the kids are still in school. Chelsea is not a very willing helper but does a great job nonetheless & dear Cami gets absolutely giddy with excitement!

Christmas catch-up

We took a mini vacation for a few days and blogger didn't post the LO's as requested so hopefully you can delight in seeing them all at once.

From Janis:
Mommy held a photo op with Nat an
d Phil in preparation for the famiily's Christmas cards. These are the ones that did not make the cut.
This one is from Lynn.
My ipod is like having a Christmas party in my pocket whenever I choose.
(even if it's only June!)
I especially love to listen to all my favourite festive songs in the lead up to the season though. It always makes me feel jolly.

These three from Cabbie.

title: love and cheers


this year, our Christmas tree is decorated with stuff toys instead of Christmas balls. We love the change and the child-like feeling with all those dolls and stuffy things hanging there!

I will take this opportunity to wish you all a relaxing Christmas day, trusting that you will celebrate with people that are important to you but making time to remember that Christmas is about Christ - whose birth we celebrate tomorrow.

Nicole's challenge 71.

One of the things I do each year is make a special Christmas craft with the kids during the month of December. The journaling says:

Glue? Check! Bag? Check! Antlers? Check! Tag? Check! I think we're ready! An easy craft that is too cute! Look how crafty you two are!

My favorite part of Christmas is dressing up my girls in identical dresses just as my sisters and I did when we were younger. :) Dec 24, 2008
