Last year we featured a Christmas Carol Countdown, taking requests for GMG FOB’s favorite holiday tunes. I thought we’d do it again this year; it’s just not possible to hear too much holiday music! Please send us your favorites and we’ll post as many as we can. Looking forward to hearing all!
Countdown begins on Saturday night. Send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Stevie Wonder’s “What Christmas Means to Me” is such fun and so upbeat. CeeLo does a version, too, which I’d never heard until this year. Which is your favorite?
The Twelve Days of Christmas Dinner Napkins
Yesterday E.J. posted her photo of Haiti Projects merchandise for sale. I thought you might be interested to know that the set of four napkins pictured above was designed by me.
My designs were inspired by the first four verses of the English Christmas Carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas–A partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three French hens, and four calling birds. Perhaps knowing what the images symbolize, you may be even more interested in purchasing as a holiday gift!
Daisy Table Mat with Matching Napkins
Over the years I designed many items for Haiti Projects and The Twelve Days of Christmas set of napkins was one of my favorites. All of the Haiti Projects linens are exquisitely hand embroidered, not machine embroidered. Additional photos are of several more of my designs for Haiti Projects, along with links to purchase each: Dove of Peace, Daisy Table Mat with Matching Napkins, Dragonfly Eye Pillow, and Sweet Dreams Eye Pillow. See also Apple Blossom Table Mat. The prices are all very reasonable and make very special gifts–as E.J. said, Give a Gift for Good.” Photos courtesy Haiti Projects website.
