Holiday Traditions

I'm feeling festive!
So I've joined Meg's (Sew Liberated) Holiday Tradition's Exchange.
Holiday Traditions Exchange 2008
This is what's involved if you want to join:

To your partner, you will send:

1.) One handmade holiday decoration. Decorations made from any kind of medium are acceptable – from fabric to yarn, paper to paint.

2.) Your family's favorite holiday recipe.

3.) A “Tradition” Tutorial. This is description of one of your family’s special holiday traditions. If needed, you should provide step by step instructions. (For example, if your family makes graham cracker candy houses each year, you would provide more concrete instructions.) You might also consider sending along a couple of photos of the tradition in action, or perhaps the materials needed to re-create the tradition if it is craft-related.

In addition, you could send a mix CD of your favorite holiday tunes, or a special book that is a seasonal classic in your family. Feel free to go above and beyond the three requirements, but please don’t skimp! When putting together your package, think about the kind of package you would like to receive. The backbone of this whole exchange is that it should be meaningful and come from that tender place close to your heart.

***Doesn't this sound fun???!!!

I just can't wait to start playing Holiday music and making things..... but first, those dreaded report cards, oh, and of course, the dreaded "paint the living room" That should be finished this weekend -- I'll show pictures as soon as I'm finished!

O.k. and how do you share these treats? At a party in the newly painted living room? I've thought of doing the cookie exchange with my sisters and neices, but they don't bake so it ended up that I just made a whole lot of cookies they came and collected and that was that. Not much fun and a whole lot of work for me.
