My New Years resolution is to stretch everyday and get super flexible.

Love that Victorian cart!

OneScrapHappyMomma said...

Normally my main New Year's Day tradition is taking down the Christmas tree and all decorations. However, this year we put up limited decorations due to our house being on the market so I guess I'll just sit back and relax this year!

We have black eye peas and collard greens on New Years Day, no huge traditions for us :o)

Oh my goodness - what great new cartridges! And the Art Nouveau is on my list :) I don't really have a New Year's Day tradition. The last few years I have worked unless it is on a weekend and now my schedule has changed so I work Sundays which means this year I will have to work on New Year's Day also :( Just realized that lol. If I am not working, I sleep!

The Scarlit Harlot said...

New Years is going to be magical. A friend and I are planning a party at her house that is inside and out. We have a big rented tent with heaters and fancy DIY ideas for champagne and strawberries, as well as New Year's Themed foods... like sparkling sugar cookies and so forth. It's going to be awesome. I can't wait!

Cori said...

Sour kraut and football!

missstamper said...

We have a very relaxing New Year's Eve and Day. We stay home and enjoy the last of the break from school and put away all the gifts that we opened at Christmas.

JaniceA said...

My New Year tradition is to send time with some of my dear friends, we eat, play games and enjoy each others company>

Jingle said...

New Year's Eve is our anniversary, so we always spend the day together. What we do changes...anything from the zoo, to museums, or just a day of hanging out, but whatever we do we do it together! :-)

Tracy said...

We spend time together at home. We make trays of snack foods from around the world and maybe chat about our goals for the upcoming year.

Thanks for this opportunity to win! This cartridge looks fantastic; its one I've been looking at for a while, as I just love that era!

Amy said...

Thanks for the chance to win the lovely Art Nouveau cartridge. I love the new Hello Thursday releases, especially Victorian Romance and This & That. We don't have any big New Year's Day traditions except for sleeping late, relaxing together as a family, and maybe taking down the Christmas tree (depending on when we put it up and what day of the week New Year's is on). Happy Holidays to you!

Scrapper69 said...

My New Years Tradition involves letting my kids pick whatever they want to eat for that day! All 3 of them get to eat whatever they want and I fix it! Usually it's soda, chips, snacking foods... They love this tradition and look forward to it every year! :o)

We are usually pretty lazy on New Years Day! We usually get rid of our Christmas tree that day too - because I am horrible at remember to water it, and it is pretty dead by then! However, this year are girls are old enough to be responsible for it - so I think it might live a lot longer this time around!!! Thanks for the great giveaway and chance to win!

JuPooh65 said...

For New Years the whole family gets together and eats TONS of finger food, watches the Twilight Zone Marathon, plays table games and rings in the New year with fireworks in the front yard. :D LOVE the Art Nouveau cart!

Anonymous said...

New years day is a day of doing nothing! After all the weeks of busy busy, we just crash. Hubbie usualy watches a football game, this year it may be a Jazz basketball game since they all (NBA) finally got their act together and are going to start playing.

centralNYscrapper said...

My New Year's Day tradition is to make a nice dinner and, other than cooking, relax before the hectic schedules of work and school resume. It is usually Prime Rib, baked potatoes and a veggie. We usually skip dessert because we are so stuffed from the main meal.

Anonymous said...

My sister got married on New Years Day two years ago. So, we will be having dinner with her and her family. I can't wait to see the projects that you make with the new cartridges. I really like the Art Nouveau Cartridge and would love to win it. Thank you for a year full of wonderful creative projects!

We always head to my sister's house for New Years Eve. We always serve enough food for an army - and eat while we play games together. The kids enjoy tobogganing too. At midnight, we all sing happy birthday to my niece - who celebrates a birthday on January 1!
Thanks for sharing the new cartridges! It's always fun to see what's new!

Tracy said...

My New Years tradition is that we always eat a special dinner by candlelight.

We do the same thing each year on New Years! We go to my parents and she cooks black eyed peas and hogs jaw (yuk!) and something green! Been doing this for years and still haven't struck it rich yet hee hee! Then after we get finished eating dinner we come on home and lay around and rest from the night before!! Hugs, Leanne

Jenny said...

My family are good Germans and we have sauerkraut and pork for good luck in the new year. However, my husband hates sauerkraut and doesn't eat it. Bad luck :) Thanks for the giveaway.

Amy said...

We eat "hoppin John" a mixture of rice and black-eyed peas. In the South we eat black-eyed peas for good luck. You're supposed to eat collard greens too, for money, but I don't like collards! That's not to say I don't like money LOL!

Cheryl Winget said...

You have been so kind and generous with your giveaways. Thank you! We generally have a very low-key New Year celebration. No heavy cooking or eating since we've done so much of that in December. This year, however, we will travel on New Year's Day to get back home from visiting family for Christmas.

Nicki Lundeen said...

New Years Day my husband watches football ALL DAY LONG, and I find something to do, like sew or craft. We normally eat seafood on New Years Day

molson24 said...

All of our celebrations occur on New Year's Eve. We always try to get together with as many family members as we can and do "the big countdown"! The night always involved playing games and enjoying each other's company - not to mention copious amounts of food!

Tanya said...

Every News Years Day we make a pot of Black Eye Peas (for good luck) and I share with the neighbors on boths sides of our property ... along with a hot, fresh batch of corn bread for each of us...That way all of us are sure to have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year! (Side note: Love the new cartridges!)

Sheila H said...

We eat black eye peas every New Year for good luck.

Heather said...

Victorian Romance looks great. Thanks for the look. My favorite New Years memory/tradition is staying up with my cousins and blowing my Grandfathers cornet at midnight. My grandfather is gone now but I pass the tradition on to my kids. I have my grandfathers cornet and it is reserved for special occasions.

rhoffer said...

We have celebrated with our neighbors for almost ten years now. This year we are having a progressive New Years Eve party. Our house will be the kid house so my daughter can babysit the youngest ones in the group. And of course we have pork and sauerkraut on the 1st.

New Years Eve is fun in Colorado Springs. We have a group of people who hike up Pikes Peak and set off fireworks from the mountain. New Years Day is spent resting - watching the Rose Parade and football if I can convince my hubby.

We don't really do anything special for New Year's. We just have a 'normal' day, except that we spend it making an effort to relax.

We get up just in time to watch the Rose Bowl parade. We're usually in our snowbird home by then so nothing special going on.

Janelle said...

For my family it's a New Year's Eve tradition. We fill up our holiday champagne flutes with sparkling apple cider and make sure we are holding cash while the ball drops.

Donna said...

Many years back friends and neighbors were stuck home on new years eve because her parents couldn't watch their kids. She invited a bunch of us over with our kids. Everyone had a blast and it has been our traditional new years eve party ever since. It was the best because you walked there with your kids and everyone had a good time. Last year they announced it would be the last so this year we need to start a new tradition.

I watch the football games and then go over to my sister in laws and we have and black eye peas you are supposed to eat for good luck. I would also LOVE to win this cart as I have wanted it for a LONG time. I am a long time follower and look forward to your email updates for inspiration.

We go to church in the morning then there's a fellowship hour afterwards. The remainder of the day we don't have any set plans.

Thanks for the chance to win! The Art Nouveau is one of the carts I really want!!

These four cartridges are all so cute! Just love them! I don't really have any New Years traditions, other than a resolution or two that I usually break, he he he. I already own the Art Nouveau cartridge, it is an awesome cartridge as well, so please pass over me when making a decision. What can I say, I simply LOVE THEM ALL! Thank you for giving everyone a chance to win.

No real traditions here. My family gets together and enjoys each others company. Our tradition is on New Years Eve. We always go out to eat at the same Chinese restaurant! Just thinking about it makes me hungry!!

Sally Gasparri said...

Since we moved to Georgia 6 years ago we have established a new tradition. Our best friends come from Florida and spend the week between Christmas and New Years with us. We shop the sales, scrapbook and just have a good time together with old friends. She cooks collard greens on New Years Day for us.

My family reunate at my father's home to received the Father's Benediction. Good for the year long.
Have a good day

Lori said...

On New Years Day we usually sleep in late and then I make our family a nice breakfast. We usually spend the rest of the day just being lazy!

JenBenLola said...

We spend the day with my father in law's family. We always celebrate our christmas then because the holidays are always so busy for everyone and every year we know we'll see them then! :)

Karen S. said...

Wow! Another awesome giveaway! We don't really have a New Year's Day tradition - usually we're traveling. This year we'll be with my family out of state which will be really nice! Thanks for the chance to win!

My best friend and I always scrapbook on New Year's Day!

Sharon said...

We make Shrimp Bisque soup and usually have a wonderful lazy day. Take in a movie, enjoy the family who are home for the Holidays. What more could one ask for?

Carolyn said...

We spend New Years at home, eating snacks and then at twelve we have sausage, potaotes, onions and pepper sandwiches, pepperoni, cheese, shrimp an a toast. We enjoy each others company.

Andi said...

We don't really have any New Years Day traditions...except maybe taking down the Christmas decorations. Boring stuff! Maybe we'll start some with all the great ideas posted on your comments!

New Years for me involves trying to do all the things I love to do with the belief that if you do them New Years you will do them all year.The Victorian cartridge is a great one.

Every other year we do our family Christmas on New Years because my son and his family go out of state for Christmas. The other years it is a "What should we do?" in a panic. We always end up grazing all day watching football. Very relaxing day. Thank for the chance to win so many wonderful prizes this week. This one is my favorite.

ttrp said...

We always go to a local high school and hang out with lots of friends from our church and eat lots of good food. We then celebrate my husbands birthday which is Jan 1

I love the new cartridges. Be sure to take time for yourself this holiday! You always give so much to others.

jordanbev5 said...

Well we like football and so New Years Day is spent watching it on TV while I crop at the kitchen table and cook and fellowship with out of town relatives staying with us. Lots of good times!

we don't have a tradition but i love the new carts

Paper Memories4u said...

Our New Years day tradition is to sleep in, go out for breakfast and then go to a town about an hour away for some good shopping and great deals. We live in a small town so we travel to our state capital for great shopping. papermemories4u@ yahoo.com

JustJules said...

We eat blackeyed peas and collard greens. The peas stand for how many pennies you will get during the year and the collard greens stands for dollar bills. Old southern thing!!

We don't have any New Year's traditions. I usually spend the day cleaning since it's a "bonus" day off. I like to get caught up on all my chores.

Our New Year tradition is to have breakfast together and talk about our goals for the year. We don't do New Year resolutions.
I really like the Art Nouveau cart ~ thanks for the chance to win!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!

Gwen said...

We take down the tree and play games if we can we go skiing.

tndj said...

sauerkraut is the one tradition we have to have. When I married into the family it was you have to have sauerkraut on New Year' Day. I did not like it. Now 45 years later I love sauerkraut and would not ever think of not having it on New Year's Day.

croses said...

Love, love the Victorian cart. We usually celebrate with a birthday party as it was my mother's birthday. New Year's Eve is the birthday of a family friend and we celebrated them together with cake at midnight and the candles to be blown out.

Lynn said...

New Years would be without black eyed peas and rice. When I was a child mom would put a silver dime in the bowl. Rich you would be if you got the dime!

Lana said...

I have been wanting Art Nouveau!!! I love this cartridge!- - My family plays games and tries to stay up until midnight and watch the ball fall in time square on tv. My kids love this, because they are 9 & 6. Nothing is better, than spending time with your family!

CardsbyJo said...

Our New Years Tradition is to play board games as a family till we are too tired to stay up. We eat lots of finger foods like mini pizzas, veggies/chips and dips, hot wings, mini cheese cake and our favorite 'apple-floppa'. Fun and Yummy!!

Marcy said...

Our New's Years tradition is around food. I make a big pot of black-eyed peas and some corn bread for midnight. Then we play all day and relax. Depending on where we are we may go on a hike.

Pamspaperpassion said...

I like the new releases! I usually have a get together at my house with a few friends. I have a son, so I don't go out anymore so I bring the party to us, lol. Thanks for the chance to win!
