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...

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...
