Holiday Trimmings—Which Trimmer Do You Choose?

Winners posted 12/22/2009

It was there that we shared our ‘day.’ That is by far my favorite memory of home and childhood. I raised my children the same way and am happy that my daughter does the same with her children.”

Jenny McGee: “My childhood bedroom has memories. It changed colors, but it had a lot of windows in a fairly small room. I had my desk, my bulletin board and my record player with all my treasured teen albums. IT was a fun time in my life.”

Savannah O’Gwynn: “I lived in a small town called Star City in the middle of nowhere in Indiana…my favorite thing about growing up in our home is that we lived in the middle of nowhere with neighbors 1-2-3 miles away. We were the ONLY house on the road…and the road was DIRT! Literally! Ok, there were a few rocks…but it made for a dusty road, and I loved playing outside and not worrying about cars or other vehicles. My parents still live in that house–and I hope that I will someday return to live in that house! I LOVE IT!”

Tamra: “My favorite childhood memory would have to be without fail we always sat down to a noon time meal on Sundays. That was the one day every family member was there for sure.”

Cindy D: “One of my favorite childhood memories is chasing lighting bugs with my cousins!’

Cheri Johnson: I was especially inspired by the circle accent Lori Anderson used, which reminded of a product I’d had for a while and had wanted to use but hadn’t yet. Lori’s layout inspired me to use this product that had been sitting around for awhile along with some newer items I had in my stash as well!
