|over at the Internet Cafe Devotions, they are hosting a Holiday Expo, beginning today. click over and check them out!
today’s topic is traditions.
|Ok. now for a crazy tradition that has been going on since 1988.
THE TOILET PAPER ROLL: when i still lived at home, i never would change the empty toilet paper roll, (much to the demise of my mother)…(which as a mom, i know understand why)…..anyways, one night, after being told a million times to change it, i kept the roll and shoved it under my mom’s pillow. (why? i don’t know. just to be silly)….. well, low & behold, she kept that roll and i unwrapped it under the tree that year! then, i kept it for a year, and hid it in one of their gifts and so it began. this SAME toilet paper roll has been passed back and forth since 1988!!!!
some of the ways its been given:
no matter how it’s given, it’s always signed with the year and wrapped to prevent any damage. i don’t see it in my sock drawer, so it must be dad’s turn this year!!!!
it may sound crazy, but this tradition now even has friends asking about it each year–anxious to see what is done!
|a tisket a tasket.
here’s my huge basket!
i have been looking for something to keep my ever-growing marvy punch stash in.
found this one today!
(except for the fact that i have already ordered a few more punches and my basket is over-flowing already!)
if you haven’t tried these punches yet, you should! they are easy to use and the different sizes are perfect for any project! you can purchase them many different places, of course, i would suggest my favorite online store, papertreyink!!!!
|spent last night have soooo much fun putting this mini album together. i made it for my BF lisa. she is my coffee-buddy. i knew she would totally “get” the theme of this album.
i used all sorts of papers, rub-ons, stickers, stamps, ribbon, and starbucks stuff.
i filled it with pix of us at starbucks, and a pic of our starbucks cups.
also added coffee quotes and Bible verses about friendship.
these are just a few of the pictures.
