star September 2011 Member of the Month

It is, with the greatest pleasure, that I announce our September’s Member of the Month. If I were to use the words “Canadian” and “Cake”, you don’t have to be the brightest elf at the workshop to figure out who I’m talking about!

This month, it was a given. We had an almost unanimous decision, both from members and crew

Ladies and Gentlemen, please put your hands together for Christmasstar!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christmasstar joined MMC in 2007 and can be seen here daily with a cheery word for all, usually accompanied by one of her brilliant graphics. It never ceases to amaze me how she can find one to suit any occasion!!!

A busy mother of 3, living in Stratford Ontario, Christmasstar delights us with tales and photographs of the wonderous cakes she decorates to competition standards. Equally impressive is the fact that she has also gained her commercial vehicle license which, should ever the opportunity arise, would enable her to drive the festive Coca-Cola truck ("holidays are coming....."!)

Christmasstar isn't hesitant in the slightest when asked what holds her interest in MMC throughout the year "The wonderful people who have become a part of my life. Even though we have never physically met, I feel as if many have become close friends over the years. I know I can share my highlights and my problems here and that someone will be there with a hug or a "well done"! No matter what time of the day I am on here, there is someone else around to chat with" She continues saying that her favourite MMC moment was the podcast with the members calling in to give personal greetings. "It was so nice to hear the voices of those whom I "talk" to on the forums”. Ideally, the best thing for Christmasstar would be to meet up with everybody here at The Inn at Christmas Place but until then, she will keep looking forward to her favourite part of the season; the card exchange. These cards are the first decorations to go up over the fireplace and are the envy of all who survey them!!

I’ll finish with one more thing Christmasstar shared with us and it is simple and sincere and could not be more beautifully expressed

“Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus. It is a magical time of the year when secrets are whispered, kids are extra good and stories of Santa and reindeer that can fly abound. It’s a time for generosity and for sharing the love of family and friends. Bright decorations, a beautiful tree in the house and special music all combine to make the season wonderful”

Christmasstar is part of what make My Merry Christmas tick; one of our essential cogs that makes us run smoothly and evenly and without which would make us feel slightly unbalanced. She is one of the most loved members on the forum and is as necessary to us as milk and cookies are to Santa.

Congratulations, Christmasstar – may you keep shining brightly over the Merry Forums at My Merry Christmas!!!!!
