Merry Christmas!

I usually post my freebies towards the bottom of my post, but today I just wanna give it up front. There's some stuff worth reading under the freebie though, I promise :)
-------


Here is a fun new date stamp for you to use to start out your 2009 scrapbooking. You can use it as a PNG, or even make a brush or stamp out of it for your digital scrapping :)

I love date stamps because later in life when I look at a photo it is often hard to remember what year it was, how old I was, etc. Date stamps help to develop a timeline for me to work from lol.

EXPIRED It is a limited time only freebie, when the link stops working, it's gone :)

(Sorry, but this was a regular product I was giving away free before you could buy it :) It's now available here at MSS

The Christmas Letter

Wow, Santa. What a year this has been. Sometimes I wonder if we
will ever make it through. So many new challenges, so many old ones still unresolved. We are lucky to have a tree.

As the years go on, the family seems to get smaller. We used to have the
big family parties, the laughing, the Christmas carols playing in the
background. Sounds of children playing with newly unwrapped toys and adults touching glasses with holiday cheer. Now, we will be celebrating in our own home, near our little tree, filled with borrowed ornaments and found baubles.

We had a pact this year. No presents for the adults. Only for the kids.
This was a practical choice, although necessary. With only one of us working, the money is pretty tight. We managed to get just enough money to get some toys, but it will take a Christmas miracle for the rent to get paid next week...

This letter is fictional. Or is it?



I sit here preparing for the oncoming festivities of Christmas. I look over my shoulder and can see my little darling watching Christmas specials on TV and all wrapped up in the ideals of Christmas, the excitement of tomorrow's certain bounty. Daddy is in the back room still wrapping, and getting ready to put together a new toy to put under the tree when she goes to bed tonight. I am truly blessed this Christmas.


At this especially beautiful time of year, it is most important to me to say: May you have a beautiful Christmas and may you enjoy the closeness of family, the joy of giving and receiving, and may you make some spectacular memories.

This story belongs to so many this year I imagine. We didn't have any "tree money" this year at all. Our gift budget was smaller than ever before. Most gifts I made this year.
We had a wonderful Christmas anyway!

Thanks for this, I know exactly what you mean about trying to figure out when a photo was taken; the where is sometimes a little easier thank goodness!

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
