Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts Review

I received the greatest Christmas book that I wanted to share with you. It is called-
A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts.

It is a compilation project by 6 different women -

Trish Berg
Terra Hangen
Cathy Messecar
Karen Robbins
Brenda Nixon
Leslie Wilson

What makes this book so charming you might ask? It is full of sweet stories, recipes, trivia, lyrics, poetry, Bible verses and even questions that all 6 ladies answer from their individual viewpoint and all of these things relate to Christmas. Its a beautiful book that would make a lovely present or display nicely where guests can flip through it.

I loved the story of the grade school girl selling Christmas cards door-to-door after her daddy died and my eyes welled up at Trish's story of her Little Angel Girl Ornament. There are recipes I want to try and thoughts that make me think. Overall this is a beautiful book that would be treasured by anyone who loves Christmas.

And please visit the blog these ladies have set up with wonderful tips about getting through the holidays.

Thanks for alerting your readers to our new holiday book. It's so beautiful; I often get comments just on the looks. But, of course, inside is a treasure of inspirational reads, thoughts, poems, recipes, vintage lyrics and much more.
