Thanks guys!

The lunch bags are a cool idea though a bit seasonal if made in x-mas fabric... but I could make them in red or green which would be festive at the time but not too christmasy for july.

Those wraps seem amazingly mutli-purpose. It sure would be cool to memorize all the ways of folding them. I will definitely give them a shot!

I got a whole bunch of x-mas fabric on sale in the summer and I want to make fabric gift bags. I want to make a bunch of different designs so I don't get bored.

I have already made a bunch of the rectangle with a drawstring at the top kind. I saw the two links in the "Packaging handmade gifts" thread for shopping bags and snowmen bags (fabulous ideas) but if anybody has other ideas I can always use more.

Help me bring a little green to my family chrstmas?  Smiley

It is so much fun reading about everyone's traditions! It makes me feel so nostalgic because my traditions have been kind of mixed up since I got married the summer before last.

Leading up to the big day there is always tons of baking, cookies and fudge and brownies. And my mom and I decorate a gingerbread house.

On Christmas Eve we go first to the in-laws around 3:00 where we eat finger foods and MIL's special festive trifle then we play bingo and whenever someone gets bingo they choose a prize from a big basket. The bingo goes on until all the prizes are gone. (This takes a while and you usually win a bunch of times).

Then we head over to my parent's place or my uncle's place around 7 and eat more finger foods and play a tacky gift exchange. Everyone brings a silly present $5 and under and puts them in the middle of the room. Then all the guests get a number. Each guest picks a gift and unwraps it for all to see. It is usually something funny (eg. my Grandma once opened a velvety santa man's g-string) but sometimes it is useful (duct tape) or tasty (chocolates). Then the guest has a chance to keep what they chose or to trade it for any of the already opened gifts. If they choose to trade then the other guest has to give up their gift. At the end the person with the number 1 gets to choose from all the opened gifts. It is mostly just silly fun and it is funny to watch kids get really serious about it.

Then around 10 we go back to my parent's place where for the past few years, because we are all grown up now and there aren't any kids, we have been opening presents with a glass of wine late into the night.

Then in the morning we head over to the in-laws to have the big christmas morning event. I still miss christmas mrning with my parents and brother but I guess I should just be glad that I have so many lovely people to celebrate with. 

Oh my imediate family has also started a holiday tradition to give everybody on their list a handmade gift. These are usually elaborate and well thought out and sometimes not quite finished.

Phew I think I have shared enough. Haha. Sorry I got a little carried away!
