December 11, 2014 Christmas Photo a Day

I’ve been at this Christmas Photo A Day for a while.  It came about because I have spent every Christmas season since 1989 in retail. I was trying to find a bit of seasonal joy and motivation.

First, there were random blog posts about Christmas, and Christmas memories of mine. A bit of navel-gazing to be sure, but my reminiscing seemed to strike a chord with readers. Then I added some photos; the first year they were only emailed to my address book.

In 2009 I added this to my blog, and by 2011, it had become TRADITION! People often wonder how traditions are made.  Doing something more than twice seems to do it!  (But if the tradition isn’t working for you, change it up! Don’t worry, for the time being, this tradition is safe!)

Here are (almost) all the photos, over the years.

And these are some of my most treasured gifts. So, Throwback Thursday this week is taking a time machine back to an old blog post.

  • Which is to say, about once a week, I post photos that I have taken for challenges.
  • I occasionally post blogs about quilting,
  • When I can’t take it anymore, I may post a rant about something.
  • Sometimes, I am even philosophical or silly.
  • When December 1, 2014 rolls around, you will be the first to receive Christmas Photo a Day photos again!
