Hello! Hello!
It's only 12 days til Christmas! Are you ready? Have you trimmed your tree? Hung your stockings? How about shopping? How is that going for you? Do you bake for the holidays? Everyone has a Holiday routine, filled with lists and traditions. At the Starner house, we decorate the house on the weekend after Thanksgiving. Sometime in the middle of the month, we bake cookies and host a cookie swap. Christmas Eve is always spent traveling from home to home visiting the extended families. And Christmas day is spent with our immediate families. My in-laws come over for breakfast, and my parents come over for dinner. Its a crazy busy month, full of love, tradition, and good food ;).
This week, we would love for you to share with us some of your traditions. It doesn't have to be about a holiday tradition, but this is the perfect time to get those down on paper.

I used the fabulous December kit on this layout, I made about trimming the tree. We do it every year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

* supplies NOT included in the kit are the baker's twine and the polka dot ribbon.

Do you see those buttons? Aren't they darling!?! I am in love. The stars have a sheet music pattern on them! How could you resist that?

Tell us about (better yet, show us) your holiday/non-holiday traditions!
