having a merry little christmas (mix).

There are 15 cheery mixes in the hands of 15 family members & friends of mine {soon! I sent them out on Tuesday, so they should be arriving pretty soon, all my far-away friends}.  I just thought it might be nice to share with all of you what I did: 

* Each person got a mix cd of 14-18 songs based on what I knew they liked. 
(For example: while I know Marci love listening to A Fine Frenzy, I know my mother doesn't. Therefore, mom got a cd full of songs of the 50s, 60s, Sufjan, and Mannheim Steamroller.) See?

* I made the cd jackets using Marta's easy tutorial. I also used my Japanese masking tape for the edges. 

*All the songs were ones I like listening to...after all, they were all bought by me + will be on my iTunes forever. Here is an (incomplete) sampling of the songs:

Happy Listening!

What a sweet, thoughtful, easy idea! The hubs and I make a Christmas mix CD each year for ourselves (can I really say "each year" when this is only our second Christmas married??), but I love the idea of making a different set of tunes for special people as part of their Christmas present. Love the inspiration--it can be frustrating to find GOOD covers of Christmas carols nowadays!

What a fun idea! I need to keep this in mind for next year! especially the new Christmas tunes!
