dear reader – you have officially arrived on the blog of someone with the worst memory in the world. I feel like I don’t remember a lot from my childhood compared to other people. My mind is a funnel, through a huge hole.But trademark asked me to write about holiday memories and that got me thinking, what am I supposed to remember? And I realized that I remember a lot about the holidays growing up, and many of these memories are the good ones.There are several things that flood my brain when thinking about the holidays and the young. Here are a few: cooking with my mother, moved from the old ornaments/decorations and tell stories with each purchase of a new Star Trek jewelry from trademark each year (my mom is a Trekkie), watching Star Wars on Christmas (I’m a big fan!) and, of course, Tinker.We have always done things when I was young, but the holiday was when we got to build together as a family. I loved crafting and I love it now, and I appreciate these items that we have made together.So I’m not really dominant, but I encourage you, these kind of memories with their children, either in the holidays or in the new year. And it just so happened, I’ve got an activity for you!This “JOY” banner is one that can do the whole family together – and it can be customized in many ways.change the paper or color . . .
