It’s the last day of the CCCBH today . . . It’s been a lot of fun to reminisce about past Christmases and get to know the blog hoppers. I want to thank all those participating in the blog hop – especially those that have stopped here and have taken the time to leave me such nice comments. My hope is that you will stop in and see me every week or so, as that is how often I usually blog. I’m not used to blogging every day, so I may take a little break and catch up on a few other things around here! I have to say that all this blogging has gotten me in the mood to get ready for Christmas. I’ve started unpacking the Christmas decorations and have been loading some Christmas songs on my ipod. I may even get the tree up before Thanksgiving! How about you? Did the blog hop put you in the mood for all thing Christmas?
Before you head off to the storage closet to start unpacking, be sure to stop by Linda Lum DeBono’s blog to see the fun project that she has in store for you. Linda is a fellow designer with Henry Glass fabrics, so I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her at market. She’s great fun and has so many talents.
Our last topic of the blog hop is a Christmas craft you make every year or did as a child.
I had two favorite crafts that I made as a kid, just probably not every Christmas.
#1 – Paper Chains. I don’t know why I loved them – I just did! They always seemed kind of addicting. I just kept wanting to add more and more and see how long I could make my chain.
I found a more adult version of paper chains that I am tempted to make. Look how cute these are:
Can you even stand it? I just love them.
#2 – My other favorite Christmas craft was making paper snow flakes.
I still love making snowflakes, I just don’t usually do it by myself. I prefer to do it with my nieces, as it’s always more fun with them! It’s nice to have an “excuse” to still act like a kid. I still remember my Great Grandma Anka doing the same thing with me . . .she would fold up paper, make an assortment of cuts, and then open up this amazing row of little paper dolls. Back then she used old newspaper. Now when I do this with my nieces, we used colored paper. I wish I had a picture of us doing this together, but I guess I must not have had my camera with last year when we did this!
Just to wrap up a few other things related to the blog hop –
You will have until Sunday night to comment on each designer’s featured post and have a chance at the grand prizes. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, so you will want to stop back them. I will also be announcing the winner of the contest on my blog (from my featured post)
