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.

The girl keeps me busy dur­ing the hol­i­days for sure. But I love it and it makes me hap­py that she loves them so much. So Ans­ley and her cook­ies were the inspi­ra­tion behind this card. I thought the Maya Road Heart Tart Tin Bot­tle­cap was per­fect to start with, then using Jet Black Archival Ink, I stamped the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Miss­es’ Aprons onto grungepa­per three times so I could cut out the apron from one and...

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.
