Ugly Christmas Sweater Weather -- Local Christmas Traditions with the Unstampabelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Christmas theme/tradition for your Country, with the optional twist of explain the theme in your blog. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!

Living in the United States of America, most of our traditions are imported and then exported via commercialism! I'm not sure if this is a solely American tradition, but in recent years Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties have become popular. A few of my crafting friends and I have picked up the tradition, although we tend to be a bit vain and choose cute sweaters! We've also started the tradition of making Ugly Christmas Sweater cards...and, of course, collecting Ugly Christmas Sweater crafts!

I filled the shaker with tiny sweaters cut on my Silhouette Cameo with a file from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons, along with gold stars & gold microbeads. The shaker cover is from a Shake It set by Impression Obsession. The sweaters are all stickers from my stash.
