Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!

Happy New Year! Wishing you and your family a happy and prosperous new year. To celebrate, I'll be giving away a stamp from an upcoming release! It's not necessarily the next release, but something that is planned for 2012. All you need to do is:

1. Leave a comment on THIS post by 11:59pm on 1/1/11 (i.e. Sunday night).
2. Tell me what are your New Year's traditions.
3. Become a follower on our blog (publicly) if you aren't already.

Normally, I celebrate New Year's at home in Hilo. New Year's Eve is my husband's birthday, so New Year's is a big deal for us. This is one of our New Year's traditions... Uncle Roy asks us for our xmas tree, which is normally dead by the time New Year's comes around. (But now that we buy our tress from Home Depot, they don't die as quickly!). We "trim" the tree with some fireworks, and then you can guess what happens.

Don't worry, we are very careful when we do this. This year should be very tame on Oahu... I guess I'll get the Hilo report tomorrow! Happy New Year's everyone! To the gang in Hilo... save some sushi, won ton, and ozoni for me!

Kris Palakiko from Maui is truly inspiring.. Not only does she take care of her family, but she also runs her own craft business, and takes on all kinds of other projects... including Project Make A Child Smile. This year, Kris decided to help out her Aunty who makes dolls to donate to a local hospital at Christmas. Kris asked her fellow crafters if they would help her out in making 150 cards to accompany each doll... click here to learn more about the project...

So after she put the word out... I thought that giving from the heart should be rewarded.. right? So I secretly contacted Kris to see if I could help out somehow by donating a few Sister Stamps to those that made a donation. We both agreed that in the spirit of the season, we didn't want to promote that there would be prizes to those that give from the heart. We just wanted to reward those that decided to give without any expectation of winning anything. Everyone who made a donation is truly an angel at heart! I just love to hear that our crafting community is so generous! So, as a special thank you, Sister Stamps has donated some of our Christmas images as prizes. Click here to read more about the results of Project Make A Child Smile and to see if you won! A big thank you to Kris and her Aunty for coordinating this special project. I know that everyone's generosity will make a lot of smiles this holiday season!
