Seashore Stampers November Blog Hop

Hello Fabulous Followers, Fellow Stampers and Random Lurkers,

Welcome to the Seashore Stampers November Blog. This month, we are celebrating Christmas Cards and packages. There are so many fabulous ways to express ourselves - it's sometimes hard to decide what to do. Meet my card, "Xmas, Oh Deer."

This is the first card I created with the delightful Merry Patterns Hostess Set. Since I had also just bought the incredible Large Letter Framelits, I simply had to make an eclipse card. Now I know some folks have an aversion to the word Xmas. Recently I found out the history of the word and hope to change your mind. Contrary to popular belief, Xmas is not a secular word. Going way back in history, Christ was often written as "Xρ" or "Xt." In Greek, X is "chi," the first letter in Χριστος (Kreetos) which translates to Christ. X has in fact been an acceptable representation of Christ for hundreds of years. So, Merry Xmas!

My first Christmas Craft Fair was at Goward House last weekend. I was told by my friends to make "lots of crackers." Until just over a week ago, I had never even made a cracker. There I was, 2 days before the fair, figuring this out. (Holy Procraftination, Batman!) Well, now that I know how, I don't think I'll ever stop. They are so easy and so much fun. You can put what ever you want in them. I used the coveted Hershey Candycane kisses.

For the complete recipe and supply list, just drop me a line and I'll provide them.

Be sure to come visit me at Cook Street Village today, November 25th.

Happy One Month Until Christmas!

Until next time, all the best to you and yours,
