It's the most wonderful time of the year

Hi!

This week over on the Can You Digi It? blog there is a NEW challenge. It's Baby It's Cold Outside.

My DT project was my Christmas present for my
DH's brother and sister-in-law.

If you're like me you've got to get your Christmas shopping done.

So far we've got a couple of ideas playing around in our heads
for the family members who live here in Texas.

But, of course, I did marry the baby of 6 and that means
we have to shop for his siblings, too. Thankfully, we have a
whole system set up where each person gets assigned a different
person each year. And if your person remembers you will receive
Christmas presents for your family, well the couple.
They have a whole other system set up for the kids
but since we don't have any. No worries there.

Does your family do something like this?
Or do you get gifts for everyone?
I grew up in a small family. So we'd buy a present for everyone.

 Well, last year we were forgotten. :( 
Yup. DH's sibling that was assigned to us forgot all about us. I won't even tell you how "kind" she was to us for our anniversary. lol

But this year the brother and sister-in-law that have us not only remembered us but also sent our gift early. :)

Well since I'm the shopper in our family I'm responsible for remembering to get presents. If it were up to DH everyone would just get gift cards. And since I worked at The UPS Store for 2 years I'm responsible for getting presents shipped, too.

I was out this weekend at KOHL's. I just love that place
and I saw a couple of gifts I thought would work out.
Since DH knows his family better then I do I was sending pics
via our iPhones to him so he could help
with the decision making process.

Now I won't share with you what the gift is
but I'd like to share with you the gift wrapping job
that I did on it.
This is the gift. I made a tag for it.

This is a close up of the tag.

Oh, I wanted to share with you that the following digi designers
will be retiring from the Can You Digi It? team 
Loopy4Digis and Mike Eustis.
Their stamps are on SALE now until the end of the month.
 By the way the Snowpoke on this tag is by Loopy4Digis.

 Starting in 2013 their digi designs will no longer
be in the Can You Digi It? shop. :(
We are sad to see them both go and wish them the best.


Happy Crafting,
M.E.
