Welcome to my special guest Suz Gray. Suz has an awesome blog with so many creative ideas. Of course I met Suz in a chat for a webinar and found her full of energy and creative spirit. I've enjoyed her holiday traditions post.
Welcome Suz Gray
I'm Suz Gray.... "craftysuz" is how most of my scrappy friends know me. The holidays have always been a very special time to me because they are all about family & traditions. Even those loved ones who are no longer with us physically can be there in some way by doing the things we did with them. My Grandma was one of the most special people in my life. We shared a name (she's Sue), likes & personality. She knew me better than anyone else.
I passed it on to my boys - they were each born in March so I remember them both "helping" bake their first Christmases. (this icing in a can wasn't what we would normally use but "Chef Andrew" was trying a recipe - he was a Food Network junkie). Even in their 20's they still help me bake each year... sharing & making memories. I can't wait for grandkids to pass on the tradition to... hint hint lol
Grami loved to make crafts & paint. She was the person who gave me my nickname "craftysuz" at the age of 8 because I wanted so many different craft kits from the Sears Christmas catalog from "Santa". Making Christmas cards is a way to share our creativity with family & friends, letting them know they are special to us. Here's a few quick and easy cards I made this year.

It's truly incredible how many of our memories are attached to our family's food traditions this time of the year. I can almost smell my grandmother's biscuits, fruit cake, etc. Please be sure to check out Suz's blog. I have it on good authority that she is posting more wonderful projects. Also Suz is full of crafting resources at her blog.
Well, bloggers tomorrow is Day 12. The time has flown by. I have another incredible guest tomorrow. See ya then!
