It's my favorite holiday tradition! firstname.lastname@example.org

WOW! I just want to say I am blown away by the amazing comments here! I treasure each one of you for sharing your family traditions. This is so special to me as we reinvent our Holiday season, and grow as a young family (our daughter is almost 3, but we have been married 12 years). I wish all of you a wonderful end of the year full of much love, peace, time for reflection, and joy.
It is also an honor to get to hear from so many people I have never met before (most all of you). This has made the blogosphere feel like a tangible community. I am enjoying discovering new blogs to follow and new pinterest and facebook friends. I would be honored if some of you felt the same towards my humble blog.
Oh! And GOOD LUCK! I know I am excited about the contests I have entered today.

With the upcoming launch of my Happy and Free Clothing company on 1 January 2012 I have been in a flurry of creativity. I kept that in mind as I scoured my overflowing craft shelves for items that I knew would delight others with their own unique creative spark. I enjoy all kinds of arts and crafts and so I have drawn from 4 of my favorites.
On 16 December I will randomly select 4 winners! What do you do to enter? Readers of my blog know that we have been trying to decide what Holiday traditions to include with our family. For us that involves Christmas, Nativity, Advent, St Nicholas Day, and Winter Solstice. I would love to hear what traditions your family especially enjoys at Holiday time. Please leave me a comment telling me about it. Be sure to include your email address so that I can reach you. That's it! You will be entered! No hoops, no posting on fb or twitter, although you are welcome to if you wish.
