  36. My favorite holiday tradition is our Gingerbread house parties. We always have one for friends, another for family and have in the past done one for children in foster care homes from one organization. It is so much fun to see the kids get so excited and amazing to see their creativity and imagination. The adults also get so involved and revert back to being kids, too. It's a lot of work but it is so worth it!

My favorite tradition has always been my kids (who are now 21 and 24) and I going over to my mom's on Christmas Eve and spending the night with her and waking up together on Christmas morning. We just lost my mom a few months ago, so it will definitely be different this year, but plan on continuing with both of my kids coming over and spending the night with me and the 3 of us waking up together. Just being together with family is what Christmas is all about to me. Thank you so much for the chance to win this beautiful cartridge!

This cartridge would be perfect for that :) I also love the tradition our family has where we enjoy yummy whole wheat apple muffins on Christmas morning, baked the night before.

  66. My favorite holiday tradition is our "24 Days of December.". It is our version of an advent calendar, counting down the days to Christmas. Each of my girls have their own little mini tree (about 3 feet tall) in their rooms, and on December first, they wake to find 24 small packages under their trees. They get to open one when they wake up each day. My parents did this for us as children, and I hope my girls continue the tradition with their own children some day!

  67. What an awesome cartridge and great projects from the team. My favorite tradition is getting together with my family.

  68. This is a beautiful cartridge. I love all the images (which I don't usually on most cartridges). Favorite tradition would be decorating the house. My mother and I live together and it is our favorite holiday. We are up to 5 Christmas trees, each with their own theme, plus a manger and other decorations either collected or created over the years. I also bake a birthday cake for Jesus for Christmas day.

  71. My favorite family tradition is a rather new one but will be one we carry on for many many years. My grandmother & grandfather were both full-blooded Norwegians and every Christmas they worked many hours to prepare many wonderful Scandanavian Christmas goodies for us. For many years we were not included in the preparation of these because my grandmother never wanted to believe she wasn't going to be here. The last few years she was no longer able to make these on her own. We started the tradition of her daughters, daughter-in-laws, granddaughters and one grandson getting together on Thanksgiving weekend and whipping out all of these wonderful treats.
    This will be the first year that she will not be able to physically be with us but will most definitely be with us in spirit. Last year she joined us for that day and only a month later was called to her heavenly home. We miss her greatly but are so thankful that we will still have this day and the great knowledge that she passed on to us to share with our own families.

  72. Oh how fun a cartridge and a paper collection!!
    My fav tradition on Christmas afternoon or evening is to go the theater to see a holiday movie. When our boys hit their teens they were no longer receiving "toys" and there was not much to do after the meal and opening gifts so we started going to the theater. Our youngest was married this year so we have to consider another families tradition and may not be able to all go.
    Crossing my fingers for good luck that my name will be picked. Thanks!

  73. OM Gosh . . . too many ideas now . . . I don't think my brain can handle it. Love the cartridge . . . even more because it's designed by Theresa! Can't wait to get it (one way or another - it will be on my wish list!). Thanks for the chance to win!

  74. My favorite holiday tradition is decorating the house with a tree in almost every room. Most are color/theme based to coordinate with the room. However, the 'main' tree in the family room is more the tradition tree, decorated with ornaments we've collected for 32 years. It tells our life story with ornaments that celebrate births, anniversaries, pets, jobs, hobbies, favorites... The largest collection is of our vacations & travels. I collect ornaments from every place we visit and each year as we unpack them we take a few minutes to reminisce. Both of my boys, now 23 & 25, have their own 'life' trees as well with an ornament collection that started from the day they were born and covers many of the mile stones, favorites, travels... in their lives.

  75. Such wonderful projects you ladies have created with Teresa's awesome cartridge!!! Your ideas and creativity are so inspiring! I hope to try and duplicate some of your ideas and design some of my own with this!! You are the most talented design team ever! My parents owned a bakery so I grew up and worked there since the age of nine. I always remember the end of Novemeber and all of December coming home from school each day having to ice and decorate racks and racks of Christmas cutout cookies!! I mean a LOT of cookies. I remember thinking" I hope I never see another cutout cookie as long as I live"! When my Dad passed away, I asked if I could have the cutout cookie cutters from our bakery. Now, my favorite tradition is making cutout cookies using those same cutters with all my children and now my grandson. I love that I can share a bit of my childhood with them and also let them learn a little more about the Grandpa that they never got to know for very long. And my son's and grandson's favorite cookie....the cutout! priceless.

  76. Love this cart and the DT did an amazing job on the projects!! My favorite holiday tradition is letting my kids each pick out an ornament to paint and hang on the tree every year. The best part is when they get out the ornaments and find the ones the did in years past, they will reminiscent about the year they made each ornament.

    ReplyDelete

  79. My favorite holiday tradition is decorating the tree, unwrapping each ornament and talking about its origin, memories, and where it came from. Then we lovingly place it on the tree..

    ReplyDelete
  80. Our favorite tradition is having a laugh at the various ornaments my son has made over the years. Our tree topper is one made by my son when he was very young. It's a toilet paper roll wrapped in foil with some red and blue sprigs coming out. I'm pretty sure its fireworks but he was sure it was more star like. We just laugh. My son who is now taller than me get a big ole hug from me every time! Wonderful cartridge.

  81. I have a collection of Santa's. I look forward to Thanksgiving because I can start setting the Santa's out for display. I did a lot of needlework and I have a tree that is decorated with just my hand-stitched ornaments.
    Those are my favorite traditions - right after having Christmas Day dinner with my kids each year.

    ReplyDelete
  82. This cartridge is amazing! I love everything about it.
    My favorite tradition is to have everyone open 1 gift on Christmas Eve. I have done this every year of my life and I loved introducing this tradition to my husband and children. It's always something small but meaningful that will put a smile on everyone's face as they try to fall asleep.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I guess my favorite tradition these days is watching the grandkids see what Santa has left for them under the tee and in their stockings.

    This cartridge is so elegant looking.

  85. I love the cartridge and all the inspirational projects. I have two new traditions, with the addition of my grandchildren.

    One is everyone gets a book. I wanted them to start early with the love of reading.

    The other is everyone gets a gift of something sweet, with the tag reading; "Life is short, make it sweet".

  87. I love the entire season! Our family has a tradition on Christmas Eve of preparing a seafood dinner together, then sitting down with one another to enjoy it. We talk about the excitement in the air, the season and its meaning, and what may be hidden under the tree. Love this precious time spent with my family!

  92. This is just an amazing cartridge! I love everything about it. We have lots of wonderful family traditions at our house but the one that comes to mind is every Christmas Eve we have appetizer type foods and sit and watch the 1954 movie White Christmas. (my boys, now grown can even recite dialogue...haha) Then we open one gift...it's always Christmas pajamas, and read the Christmas story from Luke. It is always a wonderful time with my family.

  109. It's silly but my favorite is the Christmas dinner we have after the 1st of January. Everything gets so busy during the holidays, years ago my grandmother decided to make it easy on everyone. Spend Christmas with the other side of your families and we will have our Christmas dinner on her side in January. (I think she did it so she had a reason to leave her tree up into January.) The hustle and chaos is gone and we just get to enjoy each other's company.

  122. My favorite Christmas tradition is one I started with the kids a few years ago ... scavenger hunt Christmas morning to find their main present ... each "present" has a clue inside of where the next "present" is ... usually about 5 or 6 clues until they actually find the PRESENT ... lots of fun and they loved it ...

    One of my next projects is to do an album of all the Christmas' in my family through the years ... this cartridge would be perfect!!!

  127. My favorite tradition is the Nanny Sack! I have three grandchildren and I shop all year for things to put in their monogramed red flannel sack. On Christmas day, each child sits on my lap and we open the sack together. It's our time....just grandchild and Nanny. Even when they are too old to sit on my lap, I'll still fill thier Nanny sack.

    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome cartridge.

  128. Making holiday crafts has ALWAYS been my favorite holiday tradition. First, as a child, to give to my parents, then for my children, now with my children.

  129. When my now 23 year old daughter was little, we always made her wait until we had the video camera on and ready to capture her every emotion when she first saw her gifts. As she got older we still made her wait to see what "Santa" brought her. Now as we approach her 23rd Christmas, we will still make her wait until the video camera is set up and the coffee is on!! And she probably will still stand at the top of the stairs begging to come down!!
    This is such a great cartridge!! It is I think my favorite holiday one yet!

  130. This is such a gorgeous cartridge! Thanks for the nativity image - I love it. My favorite tradition is trimming the tree with my sons. They're young adults now and I still wait for them to be home from college before I start.

  133. My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the Christmas tree as a family. Each year my husband and I choose an ornament for each of our three children to place on the tree. The kids will place all of their ornaments from prior years on the tree first and then we present them with their ornament for the current year. When the time comes for them to move out into their own homes they will take their ornaments with them to place on their Christmas trees. My hope is that they will continue this tradition with my future grandchildren :D You have absolutely capturied the Christmas Spirit in the images on this cartridge and I can't tell you how thrilled I would be to win! Thank You!

  145. What a fantastic cartridge! Thank you for the opportunity to win. There are so many thinks I love about the holiday season (spending time with family, taking pictures, baking & making memories) but my favorite holiday tradition is taking part in a Santa Book Drive that my company does every year in the Phoenix area. Each year, we select a target school to "gift". We buy a book for each & every student, hand wrap each and every one (last year it was almost 500!), stuff individual goody bags for the students, prepare special gifts for the teachers and coordinate supply donations for the school. I enjoy the camaraderie with my fellow co-workers, but the best part is delivery day! A couple of our employees dress up as Santa, Mrs. Claus and elves. Then on the last day of school before winter break, we surprise the students with a visit from the "one and only" Santa Claus! We give each student a book and goody bag before they get some 1-on-1 time with Santa. The looks on the kids' faces is what I enjoy the most. Because we select schools that are in economically challenged communities, our gift is the only gift a child may get during the Holidays. The joy and appreciation are hard to describe but that look is what Christmas is all about. It warms my heart and soul. For me, it is the true meaning of season.
