December Daily 2010, Day 20, GIU2

Welcome to my day 20
December Daily and Growing in Unity day 2
.. we didn't do too much on the 2oth. Grocery shopping ,some crafting and one special thing.. we made our Christmas breakfast dish.. if you are West Indian you will know this dish very well. It is a family tradition to eat this for breakfast with some homemade bread Christmas morning. It is one thing that my kids look forward to every year. They even like it better than presents. go figure. I could have saved alot of money just making them a meal. hehe.
here are the pages for our day.

Roger brought these photo's home that were taken by one of the photographers at the Wrigley's Christmas party this year.

This was our day.. 2 pots of Pepperpot cooking on the stove.. a Family Cuisine Tradition.. yummy.. The family can't wait to taste this Christmas morning for breakfast.. yummo!!
For my Growing in Unity project my sweet hubby found this wine gift box, made of wood at the dollarstore. I would say what an amazing find. I think I need more.. the things I can do with them even for my craft room will be fabulous.
here is the blank wine gift box.

now here it is using one of the stamps from the Ippity (season of joy) I just love all the fantastic shapes you get in this set.

I first stamped out the image all around the box and then with some black acrylic paint I painted the inside of the image.. I love the black and natural wood feel to it.. painting the door black and adding a tag and ribbon.. What a fantastic gift idea for male or female.. Christmas or anytime of year..
but can you image a stack of them with some scrappy stuff inside.. well I can. maybe for a next project. hehe

here is the front.. I hope the person getting this will like it. If not I will be glad to take it back and they can keep the contents. HA!!

Have a fabulous day
