I don't know what's going on with Blogger lately, but I've been scheduling posts and they've been disappearing!!! I had a super nice one for you, wishing you all a Merry Christmas and I even had a Facebook freebie post all set up, but... DISAPPEARED!!! Anyhoo... Let's see if I can remember it all today! lol.

First off, I have to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas!!! I hope that you had a great Christmas and got to spend it with your family and friends!

Our Christmas was wonderful!!! For the first time in 3 years, my Dad got to spend Christmas with the family. He works offshore on an oil platform and has worked the last 3 Christmases. This year, he finally got to stay home. On Christmas Eve, my parents and brother came over and we had lots of things planned for the kids to do for Christmas. We baked Blueberry cupcakes for Santa, put out carrots for the reindeer, sprinkled reindeer food outside for the reindeer, hung up the stockings and had the kids set up the snacks for Santa and Co. They had so much fun!!! After the kids went to bed, we put the gifts under the tree and then we had a few drinks with my family. It was a great way to spend Christmas Eve. :)

On Christmas morning the kids were so excited when they came out and saw the gifts under the tree! We gave the kids a new VTech E-Reader each, some ZhuZhu Pets and hot wheels, plus, lots of stocking stuffers and such. The rest of the family gave them lots of awesome presents too but their E-Readers are by far their favorite presents. :) I gave my Hubby a new Sirius satellite radio system and he surprised me with a new KOBO VOX COLOR E-READER!!!!! I am the happiest wife in the whole wide universe!!!! I've been wanting one forever and he was such a sweetheart to surprise me with one. I love you Hubby!!!

We had a huge family dinner with Turkey and veggies and cake for dessert. It was sooooo yummy! The kids finished everything on their plates so it must have been super delicious! lol.
After dinner, my family went home and we were all alone until the 26th when my in-laws came in for the night. It was so wonderful to have them here too! The kids were so happy! Later that night my SIL and her Hubby came up for drinks and a few games of cards. We had several visitors throughout the day and night too. It was so great to see everyone!

Now, it's the day before New Years Eve and I'm cooking BBQ pork chops for supper and downloading some free e-books off the KOBO site! I love free e-books. I've bought several books that I needed to finish off some series I'm reading too. I think I'm in love with my Kobo Vox! lol.

And... seeing that my posts disappeared, I have to tell you about my super cute Christmas kit... HOLIDAY MEMORIES!!! Included in this kit: 14 patterned papers, 5 solid papers, 1 uppercase alpha set with numbers, 1 banner, 3 bows, 5 brads, 4 buttons, 1 candy cane, 5 flowers, 5 mini flowers, 2 frames, 1 journal tag, 1 pine branch, 1 present, 4 ribbons, 1 ribbon wrap, 3 ricrac, 1 Rudolph, 1 Santa, 2 snowflakes, 1 staple, 1 star, 1 string, 2 trees, 8 wordtabs.

It's still on sale at Ginger Scraps for 40% off thru Dec 31st.

As a little appreciation to all of my customers this Holiday season... I've got this cute gift tag freebie available Exclusively on my Facebook Fan Page... If you'd like to snag it, become a fan and download it fro free until January 1st!

So... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!!! I'll be back in 2012 with some awesome new goodies!!!

I hope that you're comfortable today, that you got lots of rest last night, and if you're anything at all like me, you've probably had at least 2 cups of coffee and 2 cups of tea... because... this post has a lot to see!!! There's so much going on at Ginger Scraps today that I'm not quite sure where to start! :) I guess I'll start at the newest and work my way down.

As you know, each month we have a thing at GS called The Buffet. The designers are given a common color palette and theme and we're told to run wild with it! lol. This months theme is just the cutest... WHO-VILLAGE. It's sort of a variation on the whole WhoVille- Dr. Seuss/ Christmasy theme. As soon as I saw the colors I know I wanted to create something for it.

So... Here it is! I've created a cute little element pack, patterned paper pack with bonus cardstock papers, and a set of 5 brad alphas!!!! And the amazing thing about WHO-VILLAGE... It's on sale for only $1 each! Check out the previews and then hurry on over to my store! Images are linked!

Was I right about it being cute? I think so! lol. Next up ... It's also time for the famous $1 Bake Sale! We're doing it a little different this month... Instead of it being only 1 day, IT'S 5 WHOLE DAYS!!! That's right... 5 DAYS from December 1-5th!

I broke apart my Black Friday grab bags and am offering them for just the 5 days only, each wordart pack and template set for only $1 each. After that, they'll return to regular price.

I hope that you can find lots of awesome stuff in my store this week! I've also decided that the rest of my store will also stay on sale for 40% OFF for the rest of the month! I've got lots more wordart, templates, and kits in store. Check them out! NOW!!! lol. :)

New Release Friday, $1 Bake Sale, New Wordart Pack FREEBIE!!!

Before I get into anything business related, I just wanted to take a minute to remember and pay respect to all of the Military personnel who have so bravely fought and in some cases, lost their lives, to keep our countries free. These brave men and women deserve this day to commemorate their lives and their military legacies. If you are living in Canada, like me, you will be observing Remembrance Day. And for those of you in the US, you are observing Veterans Day. Please, if you haven't done so already, take a minute of your time to remember.

So... Today is 11-11-11! How often does that happen? Well, us at GingerScraps we think it's pretty cool and to celebrate we've got something special lined up for the next 11 days! We're having a $1 Bake Sale... FOR 11 DAYS!!! The $1.00 items will change often all throughout the 11 days- so be sure to check daily for new items. You will not want to miss a single day!

It's also new release Friday and I've got some awesome goodies for you today. I've broken up my DSD Grab Bags into individual packs and they're all on sale for 25% off! check them out.

I decided to give you a special wordart pack freebie today in commemoration of Remembrance Day/Veterans Day. My awesome CT Diva, Gina, her hubby is a military man and she's making him a special scrapbook. She needed some quotes and titles so here they are. I thought some of you might enjoy them. Not all wordart are shown on the preview. There are lots more inside the pack.

This pack will be free for one week only, when next Friday it will be going into my store, so snag it for free while you can.

And here's the link to your freebie wordart pack! Enjoy!
