My Grown-Up Christmas List

thestudio_christmasbanner

It’s time for theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol blog train! I’m always excited to see what my fellow designers choose for their song and how they represent it in their kit. Links to their blogs are below my preview.
My inspiration came from one of my favorite Christmas songs. I first heard Amy Grant sing this, and I love her version. I also like this video from Kelly Clarkson because it includes the words so I can sing along.

This song is even more meaningful to me as I reflect back on 2017 and all the heartache and chaos many have experienced: from politics to natural disasters, to the increase in hate and violence here and abroad, to the loss of loved ones and the loneliness or suffering of others. The chorus to this song captures my positive, grown-up year-round list perfectly: “No more lives torn apart, that wars would never start, and time would heal all hearts. And everyone would have a friend, and right would always win, and love would never end. This is my grown-up Christmas list.”

My kit is intentionally not specific or literal to the words in the song, but I hope can be used to capture and record your memories beautifully. If interested, you can download my mini kit here (freebie link removed 1-5-2018).

In My Pretty Garden

Planting, weeding, and tending my flower gardens relieves my stress and gives me time to relax and temporarily leave the worries of the world behind. This collection was designed to showcase my love of gardening, playing in the dirt, and enjoying nature and God’s creations ~ especially in the spring when the earth is renewed and new life blooms.

All 7 packs are on sale for $1.00 each through Thursday, April 28. You can find them in my store. Be sure to look below the previews for information about some coordinating freebies.

Recipe Card Challenge ~ April 2017

The starter kit for this month’s recipe card challenge at theStudio is in my store. This will be a freebie for those who participated the month before; others can purchase it for a low price. Reminder: The papers in this mini kit are sized 4 x 6, and the elements are smaller to fit the paper size. These are just the right size to create brag book pages, too!

The focus for April’s cards is any recipe that includes eggs or are things you may like to make any time of the year, but specifically at Easter. There are already some great cards posted in the forum! If you’d like the complete set of recipes at the end of the month, just use this kit and prepare/share at least one card ~ read all the details HERE. You can check the cards in the recipe card challenge gallery.

This month’s kit coordinates with my new “In My Pretty Garden” collection, which is available now at theStudio for $1.00 per pack for a limited time. I’ll post more information about that later. You can use any items from those packs for your cards this month as well. 

NOTE: This will also be available in My Memories store.

Christmas Carol Blog Train

Welcome to theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop. Every year, theStudio designers gather together to “Sing Christmas Carols” to all of our members, customers, fans, and friends. It’s a way for us all to say Merry Christmas and a big thank you for being so supportive of us.

Each designer has chosen a Christmas carol and created a freebie around that song. This year, I chose “Still, Still, Still.” This was my favorite song all 3 years of high school at the Christmas concert. It was always the last song, and our choir director had us move from the stage and walk down the aisles in the auditorium for a close-up “surround sound” for the audience. The lights were dimmed, and we sang this a cappella. I still remember how beautifully peaceful and almost spiritual singing this song felt in that setting.

I wanted to share a link so you could hear this song. This one is a great arrangement – I can easily bust out the alto part with no problem! I must admit I would prefer all song-appropriate pictures instead of the cute family pictures that suddenly appear throughout. Take a listen if you’d like; I hope you’ll understand why I love this song and chose it for this year’s kit. Click here to listen.

Here's my mini. Click here to download (freebie link expired).
