1st Day of Home for the Holidays with Erin Bassett
Welcome to my "home" Debby's Dare. For the next 12 Days I have the privilege of introducing crafters from around the world that have influenced my crafting as well as others. I asked each crafter two questions to bring us insight into their holiday traditions. You might find you have something in common or be delighted with something new.
What is one Family Holiday Tradition that was handed down to you from someone in your family that you continue to observe?
How do you preserve those traditions?
Welcome to my blogger guest Erin Bassett. I met Erin via chatting on Paperclippings, Facebook, Twitter and have been amazed by her talent and her beautiful spirit. Erin recently joined the Design Team with Imaginisce. In her "About Me" on her website she admits her addiction to crafting but I love that she confesses to her other addictions as well.
Other addictions: coffee (decaf), water,
chocolate, chicken tacos (well, Mexican food in general will work),
bright perky colors,
Twitter, organizing & labeling things, lists, and I'm sure there's more!
My family has a lot of holiday traditions that we continue to celebrate year after year. From baking special cookie recipes to cutting down our own Christmas tree each activity helps us to reconnect with the legacy of our family and help make new holiday memories.Now with my own home and my own manger I smile every time my niece wants to play with it, and I freely give her permission to get hay all over the floor and have a great time recreating her version of the Christmas story. And when she’s through playing we do search and rescue missions to find baby Jesus again.
Since I’m an avid photo taker, I love to preserve all the memories we make in scrapbooks. Here’s a scrapbook page I did last year about my niece and the manger:
blog and see what creative projects I’ve been working on. You can also follow me on Twitter.
Merry Christmas to you and you family, Erin!
