Early Shopping

This post makes me feel sick to my stomach a little...okay- A LOT!!! When it comes to my store on TpT, I just have a hard time putting activities in there. I have about 15 packets I am working on...and I am not sure whether to share them as *freebies* or put them in my store. I LOVE making activities and using clip art and deciding which of my 2,500+ fonts to use...but I am still scared to share my stuff!!!!!!

Just in case you ***might*** want to spend some moolah, I want to share with you a few items in my store. You might want to grab these during the BIG sale!

Click on the button above to go to my store. =)











Leave a heart note and let me know your favorite Christmas movie.
I'll be back later tonight to pick a winner who can go pick 2 items from my store. =)

Sorry it took so long to share the winners.
Maria, Katie K. and Carrie G: I will be sending you an email shortly. =)

I am off to finish working on something with a Groovy Cat who saves Christmas. =)

From My Heart to Yours,

My favorite has to be A Christmas Story. I loved Darren McGavin's character and listening to the narrator describe his cursing as a gift. Cracks me up every time. BTW, don't feel shy about your products. They look great.

Good Luck tomorrow and Tuesday!

My favorite Christmas movie is Christmas Vacation. I love it when the grandmother stand up to give the blessing and she recites the Pledge of Allegience instead. ;)

Angel Read said...

One of my favorite holiday movies is one most people probably haven't seen. I think it was made for TV. Its called The Kid Who Loved Christmas. It's about a really great husband and wife who have been raising a young foster child for a year, with full intent to adopt him. Then the would-be mother dies in an accident. The little boy's social worker doesn't want the boy to be adopted by a single father, so he takes the boy away and puts him in a group home. The boy runs away to try to find his dad (the one who was trying to adopt him) and when the dad hears the boy is missing he and his friends go off searching for him. I know it doesn't sound Christmasy, but it is all set during Christmas, and the boy is very little, and Santa is involved, etc. I don't know why, but I love it!

White Christmas!! I watch it every year at the beginning of December and this year I'm really needing it because we don't have any snow yet. The "Snow" song keeps popping into my head every time someone mentions snow.

My favorite Christmas movie is the Santa Claus with Tim Allen (I think that's what its called). My dad LOVES that movie would make us watch it a 100 times each Christmas so I just fell in love with it! Plus its funny! I also love Its a Wonderful Life!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!:)

Heather,

My favorite Christmas movie is little known. It is called Small One. It is a cartoon about a little boy who must sell his much loved donkey, Small One. Guess who buys him? Mary and Joseph buy the little donkey! It is a tear jerker for sure. The little boy wanders though the city singing "Small One, Small One Small One for sale. One piece of silver. Small One for sale." Of course I sob. I cannot imagine, placing myself in his shoes, giving up one of my shih-tzus. Then when Joseph buys him, well I burst into silly tears every year. I know this movie is reality based fiction, but it kills me every year. But it touches me to know that God really does work this way. The child (in the fictional movie) must sell his donkey. But God in his greatness provides a wonderful home for Small One. Our God is soooooo good. You would love this movie!!!

This was easy, my favorite Christmas movie is Home Alone!!! We watch all the movies but we do a marathon of Home Alone (1 & 2) while we decorate the tree. This year it will be four of us as my son just became engaged on Thanksgiving, 26 years after his dad proposed to me, awwwww shucks, my grown baby is a romantic.

Santa Claus... the movie (1) is a favorite. I love them all.

My favourite movie at this time of year is White Christmas. A little singing, a little dancing, a lot of heart. How can you go wrong?

You deserve to get pay for your efforts. I love the freebies (who doesn't?) but don't feel bad about putting items on TpT for sale. You are worthy of being paid for your amazing ideas!

My favorite Christmas movie is Charlie Brown Christmas because in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the season it is a movie that tells what Christmas is all about (Linus' speech).

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against

Any recommendations?
