FYI - Stampin' Up! is having FREE SHIPPING for 3 days. They are also retiring some of their old standard colors and bringing in some new ones or ratherbringing back some old in colors. If you are interested in getting more details send me a pm & I'll send you a list of the ones that will be leaving.
My favorite craft recycling tip is that you can use just about anything! I've used wrapping paper, candy wrappers, bows off other packaging, even have used store bought cards that people send me - sometimes you can pick off an embellie or even use the back for cardstock or the front for a design element.....you can use just about anything you can think of...just let the creative juices flow!
So in keeping with the recycling theme - what is the strangest thing you have ever used on a card?
My favy holiday is Christmas of years past. I remember my family (on both sides) getting together to share a meal and memories and laughter. The men (on my dad's side) would play cards, the kids would play games and I can't rmember what the women did. We, my mother, ds & I, lived with my grandmother on my mother's side and I remember the year she filled everyone's gladd with tea irregardless of what they were drinking. Try as I might I can't seem to duplicate that kind of day now. Very sad!!!
Staying with the holiday theme - what is your favy holiday meal? And do you cook it or is it something that someone else cooked?
What a beautiful memory! Thanks for sharing. I'm sure you have created wonderful memories for your DS too.
The days of huge holiday meals are in the past for me now. But there was a time when I fed 25 people in two shifts for Thanksgiving. My favorite menu: Turkey, mashed and sweet potatoes, green bean cassarole, corn on the cob (to honor the Native Americans) and stuffed Italian shells (to honor my sister's family that couldn't join us), plus pickle dishes, raw veggie platters with dip, and biscuits. The biscuits were always late to the table and/or burnt on the bottom. Great memories. Thanks.
Fronteer days or Elizabethian period. I'm not quite sure which I like best. In the Fronteer days the ladies were strong, industrious and could make most anything out of nearly nothing. The Elizabethian period had such pretty clothing and everything was done just so.
Lynne, you have to tell us the plot, etc of the commercial. Most interesting.
