CHRISTMAS EVE BLOG PARTY!

Here at TST we hope everyone is enjoying celebrating this Holiday Season!

We had a very busy and blessed year and are looking forward to even more fun in the near future! Personally I was so happy when TST girls asked me to join the Design Team, I hope I can bring you Scrappy projects, tutorials and challenges that inspire you to create.

The BLUE challenge was such a successful charity challenge for World Pneumonia Day we are working on a few more for January and February that will be assisting the SPCA and Save the Children, so look out for more on those coming up soon!

The team is also working on a few new types of projects that will help organize and inspire us all through out the next year, sneak peeks for those are coming next week!

I am happy to be representing TST on this amazing Christmas Eve Blog Party. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, my husband and I have two traditions, on the 24th we go to midnight mass, sometimes we get to church a little early and listen to the beautiful concert the church’s chorus offers, our other tradition is on the morning of the 25th as soon as we wake up we go and check what is in our Christmas stockings, I’m sure that once we have kids we’ll be adding more lovely traditions to our holiday.


Do you have a Christmas Tradition you will like to share with us? Add a comment telling us about it and we will pick a lucky winner for our Scrappy Tree Bag with fun scrappy supplies inside.



We want to thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

From our Scrappy Tree family to yours, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and A Happy and Exciting New Year!

Hi Di!

Stockings are my absolutely favorite thing, I love the excitement of what could be in them. Your midnight Mass tradition sounds very beautiful and relaxing, a way to really treasure and honor the holiday.

Say hi to Sammy and Raul,Sammy is working that scarf btw :) I also wanted to say again how happy we are to have you on the team and wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year!
Love you lots!

YOur photos are fantastic! i WILL BE LOOKING UP THAT hIPSTAMATIC! aWESOME!
I think I am really loving my Christmas tradition of putting my Christmas tree up on the weekend of my birthday...the 4th.
It is something that we did when I was a kid...one of my birthday gifts from my parents. I have continued that tradition with my own kiddos.
