New Scribbles Video Reveals What Everyone Did During the Holidays

 UPDATE:  We're featuring Our Holiday Memories as top story once again. We've received a lot of praise for this video, which makes all the time it took to put together worth every minute. LOL!

The other day , a Scribbles pal told me she wanted to share this video with all her friends and co-workers and we say SHARE AWAY! Tell your friends to check out Scribbles.co to see this wild look at how we spent the holidays. Plus there's silliness featuring Scribbles incarnation Klyde as Santa.

The more happy viewers the better my friends!


When it comes to creating Scribbles videos, I often wear a multitude of hats. I'm the research department, the roving reporter, the writer, photographer, set designer, camera guy, actor, editor, producer and director. WHEW! That's A LOT of hats for one head... no wonder I often have such nasty neck pain. LOL.

In Our Holiday Memories 2019-2020, another hat can be added to that list. It's Santa's signature headgear and it had to actually be stapled to a wig to stay in place. That would be just one of the strange things I would find myself doing to make this video shine, and without giving anything away, let's just say it's a good thing I'm not clastraphobic.

The premise of this video is one we've used for many years now. During the holidays, the more pix you post to Facebook, the more great stuff I  have to pick from for our clip.  There's over 150 photos this time around and although they're intended to be the stars of the show, coming up with a clever way to present them has become almost as big of a draw.

Following our video is an outtake I thought you'd get a kick out of. There were several bloopers throughout the process, but this particular blunder was worth sharing.

The video concludes with the selection of this year's winner in our annual Find Frosty contest. I made sure to have someone other than myself pick the winner, but something about the results might have some thinking it was rigged. I'll let you judge for yourself.

To truly catch everything, you might wish to rewatch Our Holiday Memories more than once. It took an unsurmoundable amount of time to put it all together and I wouldn't want you to miss a single thing.

Enjoy....and here's to more Scribbling throughout 2020.


Take a look at our past Holiday Videos and you will see how much we've changed over the years, especially the kids amongst us. 

Here's some links to past year's Holiday Videos...

Here a Mask... There a Mask... 'The Masked Singer' Goes Global!

Known originally as 'The Mask Singer', the hit show debuted in Thailand in 2016. The American version (rebranded as 'The Masked Singer') debuted in Jan. 2019 and an Australian version began in Sept. 2019.

Now the costumed celebrity fun has arrived in jolly ol' England. With impressive viewer ratings, The Masked Singer UK debuted a few weeks ago with the identical set and premise as the US version, hell they even have one of the American judges ... comedian Ken Jeong!

You can watch all the performers and weekly unmaskings ("take it off, take it off") by visiting The Masked Singer UK You Tube Page Here

FOX has released a cool new trailer for season 3 of The Masked Singer. Unfortunately it currently can't be watched outside of the US, so here's an earlier sneak peek video featuring Masked Singer host Nick Cannon and a look at a few of the costumes from the upcoming season 3, which is gearing up to be the grandest yet!

1SE is an app that you use to keep a record of all the events of your every day life. You only get 1 second per day, so it can be a bit tricky, but I was up for it.

Here's a look at how I spent 2019 in a video that literally took a year to create.

Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Tacos


5 8” tortillas
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup cream cheese, softened
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp water
1 tbsp corn starch
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup crushed cookies


Pre-heat oven to 400F (200C).

Cut 4-5 rounds out of each tortilla shell with a cookie cutter to get about 20 shells. Dip each into melted butter then coat in crushed cookies.

Flip a muffin tin upside down. Place the tortilla pieces in between muffin cups. Bake 10 minutes until just golden brown. Let cool in pan.

Meanwhile, whisk together cream cheese, lemon zest, vanilla, and heavy cream to soft peaks. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Transfer to a piping bag.

Make the strawberry topping: add strawberries, water, and sugar to a small pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer to soften the strawberries. Add 1 tbsp water to cornstarch, stir till smooth. Pour into the mix and bring to a boil.. Stir and remove to cool completely.

Pipe cheesecake filling into each taco. Top with 1/2 tsp strawberry topping. Sprinkle with additional crushed cookies optional!
