581  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 7 (S/U CLOSED; S/O Sept. 17 or 21) on: August 22, 2015 04:50:26 PM
Still haven't done that ONE THING to two projects! I need to get on it. I have one large that I've finally started and a medium that I will be able to start and finish in one day (Monday is set for that). I am waiting on Michael's to get one thing in so I can finish another item - they've said it will be on the shelves in a week and a half. I am thinking I will only actually be purchasing one item as I have scrapped one that I started and just don't really care for.

Like many have said before, I need to start thinking about how to order and package mine as well.

Oh artsy! My brother is on the 26th but my oldest daughter is Jan. 4th also! We really try to make her birthday feel special and not lime an "afterthought". My younger daughter is a week before Thanksgiving while my husband's is the day after Halloween. We can't get away from the holidays!

Growing up, the only real tradition we had was midnight mass on Christmas Eve and then back again in the morning for Christmas Day service before opening presents. Now it's just Christmas Eve mass and we make caramel rolls and bacon for breakfast on Christmas morning. We leave the tree up till January 6th, and then all the decorations come down. As a kid, we couldn't put any decorations up till December 22 because me mom didn't want it to interfere with her birthday (Dec 21) so now I am all about the day after Thanksgiving!!!!

oh my that is too funny! And it also reminds me of something I completely forgot. I am a doofus! The big thing we did as a family was get our Christmas tree on my birthday! It's December 6th and it was something I always looked forward to. Now-a-days we get it the first weekend in Dec., whatever day that falls on.

I have two projects that are almost completely done. Honestly, it's just me being lazy on the very tail end of them. They are "complete" but need             put on them to make them          . Since today was the first day of school for BOTH of my kids (holy crap. when did that happen?) I will be doing that portion tomorrow after dropping them off. If all goes accordingly, I will have them done Friday morning. I have another medium-might-turn-into-a-large project that I will be starting tonight. I have the supplies for a firm medium that I will be doing this week. The last item on my list I am debating on whether or not to do. I have the mediums for it but I have never made this *particular* item. I will keep y'all posted.

Oh my all of these are so much fun!! I love how in depth some of you have gone into your family traditions.  Smiley Reading all of these totally gets me into that "warm fuzzy" holiday spirit!


Well, when I was I kid and Christmas came around I was the instigator to get the others out of bed. I am the oldest and you can bet at 5:30 I was awake, getting my sister and sneaking into my little brother's room to wake him. We waited a half hour and then went and got our stockings because those were totally fair game. Then we would get my parents sometime between 6:30 and 7 and opening gifts was a free for all!

Now, it's a lot different. My kids are SLEEPERS!!! I have to wake them at 8:30! Are they even MY children? lol anyway, now we do things the way my husbands family did and take turns opening a gift at a time and it takes a LONG time haha.

As far as the season goes, we do what my mother's family (also when I was a kid) and Christmas Eve dinner was always a simple New England clam chowder and a sandwich. Christmas day we've spent several places (my dad's, my husband's grandmother and aunt's house) but dinner is almost always Turkey much like Thanksgiving. Last year, though, we had a Turducken!!! Crazy!!  And we always go for a walk down Candy Cane Lane. Smiley


For next week's question I will give you a hint: Think foods/recipes/treats....  Wink   Grin

Just to confirm I'm still working on puzzled-penguin's item, and hopefully can send it out the weekend or on Monday! Smiley

Can I get a "Heck Yeah!" from the choir? 

Heck yeah!

Heck yeah! I can't wait to see it! Smiley
