Fun Getting To Know You Christmas Questions

Dec 19, 2014

Here are some fun get­ting to know you Christ­mas ques­tions you can share with friends and fam­i­ly at a fam­i­ly gath­er­ing or par­ty. I always find it inter­est­ing in how oth­ers cel­e­brate the hol­i­day sea­son. If you don’t cel­e­brate Christ­mas you can eas­i­ly change the ques­tions to fit your hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tion. My sis­ter and her fam­i­ly arrive late tonight and I can­not wait to have some fun with every­one. You know I’m on “best week­end ever” notice for Made­lyn and Isabel­la. I LOVE being their aunt. I have a week­end of fun all planned out that includes lots of hot choco­late, s’mores, cook­ie bak­ing, hol­i­day light look­ing and presents. It’s going to be a fab­u­lous week­end. 1. Wrap­ping paper or gift bags? This year it’s all about Gift Bags.  2. Real tree or arti­fi­cial? We...

Snow for Christmas

Dec 21, 2011

I LOVE snow and hope we get some this win­ter… so far all we’ve had is rain… which we need ter­ri­bly BUT snow sure would be awe­some. We have a chance for flur­ries Fri­day and Sat­ur­day but most like­ly it will be short lived and turn to rain. We will see and you can bet I will be watch­ing the fore­cast like a lit­tle kid. I have a true love for any­thing with snowflakes so when Maya Road came out with their adorable “Let It Snow” stamp set, I was thrilled. And their Blue 1″ Ink Pad is a gor­geous win­ter blue ink, so keep this in mind for any of your win­ter projects. If you would like to recre­ate this card cut a piece of white card­stock to 8″ x 11″ then fold...

Merry Christmas

Dec 25, 2010

Wish­ing you and your fam­i­ly a won­der­ful hol­i­day sea­son. Here are a few of my favorite child­hood Christ­mas pho­tos. My broth­er and I Christ­mas morn­ing when we lived in Kit­tery, ME.

And here is the two of us Christ­mas morn­ing with our gifts from San­ta. I LOVED that doll. May you all have a won­der­ful Hol­i­day Sea­son and the Best of a New Year! Much love,Lisa  ...

I have wonderful blog readers…

Dec 23, 2009

First I must say WOW… thank you all so much for all the won­der­ful com­ments and emails you have sent me regard­ing this post. I have decid­ed to keep it real on my blog this year. I cer­tain­ly do not want to give the false impres­sion that every­day is a hol­i­day for me. Most days are real­ly great don’t get me wrong. But I think we woman some­times get caught in a trap and feel it sets us up for unre­al­is­tic expec­ta­tions on our­selves when we read that every­thing is always peachy or things always seem so per­fect at all times on oth­er blogs. Real­ly life is not that way and I cer­tain­ly do not want to por­tray that mine is. Yes I do have so many things to be thank­ful for and I...

I am amazed at the response I have received regard­ing my work­shop. Alan and I have been very busy get­ting every­thing ready for tomor­row morn­ing. We have every­one all set up that has reg­is­tered, if you are not able to log into the 12 Days of Christ­mas blog please let us know ASAP. Here is a lit­tle some­one that just makes me smile. I won­der what he could be? Those that reg­is­tered will find out tomor­row. It is not too late to sign up for the work­shop as reg­is­tra­tion is still open. I feel like a lit­tle kid on Christ­mas Eve and don’t think I will be able to sleep a wink all night. See you in the...

A few “Getting to know you” Christmas Questions…

Dec 6, 2007

Here is a fun “Get­ting to know you” Christ­mas ques­tion­naire. When the girls were lit­tle we opened one on Christ­mas eve and the rest Christ­mas morn­ing, now we cel­e­brate on Christ­mas Eve.
