At Christmas, it seems everyone pulls out all the stops - there is soooooooo much free digi goodness at this time of year!
This is my first Christmas doing blog trains, and I couldn't be happier with what the designers have put together for you.
First of all, there's the first blog train group to let me join their ranks - Digi Blog Train List. Normally we use our blog train to draw awareness to various causes, illnesses and conditions. But this time we're just having fun and creating a huge gift for you!
It's called "Winter Wish 5," and you can pick it up at the group's Facebook page rather than visiting individual blogs. (Be sure to get all three parts!)
The collab will be available until January 3rd!
Next up...the Scrap Designers Blog Train.
The full list of designers participating in this month's blog train includes:

This group decided to work on a Christmas Song theme. My problem was that I didn't know whether to go "snarky" or "sweet" - I know not everyone is thrilled with the busyness, or the cold weather, or the drain on finances that comes with Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere. And my daughter is one of those who would much rather spend her Christmas holiday on a beach somewhere if she could.
So since I couldn't decide one or the other...I did both.
The snarky/sassy version is called "Grandma's Killer Fruitcake." I'd never heard of the song, but one of the other ladies suggested it, and it's a perfect way to convey the feeling of this word art collection. You can find the lyrics here.
And here is the kit:
The second one was an easy title - "O Holy Night."
There isn't anything especially religious in this set, but "O Holy Night" was my mother's favorite Christmas song, and no one loved Christmas more than my mom and her dad. Fittingly, they both passed away during the Christmas season, in 1999 and 1993, respectively.
As usual, there are variations of some of the files. Since I couldn't decide whether people would prefer word art with pictures or without, you get both for many of the sayings.
Have a wonderful and blessed holiday season, whatever holiday you celebrate. And we'll see you back here in a few weeks for the next Awareness blog train by the Digi Blog Train List ladies.
