Christmas Questions

  • Do you have a favorite gift that you love to give?
Hmmmm...not really. I really enjoy picking our things for the kid's stockings (and Shaun's too). I get lots of candy, chocolate, little crafts. I love wrapping each little thing...so much fun to watch the kids open it all up, on Christmas morning.

  • If you’re making gifts this year, what are you making?
Well, I have done some baking and will give some of that away to Magda as she is having lots of family over for the Holidays and hasn't had the heart to bake herself (we don't all enjoy it, ya know)!?

I have made my mom something but since she reads my blog, I can't say what it is!

Tirzah and I have made some Christmas Tree ornaments for her teacher out of foam balls and scraps of fabric (we will post some pictures later).
  • Do you have any good stories about handcrafted gifts you’ve given or received?
Shaun has given me some really nice Christmas ornaments that he has purchased at neat little shops...they are hand made by locals. My favorite are 2 angels (pictures coming).
  • Do you have any great gift compilation ideas (a grouping of gifts just perfect for certain recipients?)
No. Help!!
  • Name one thing on your personal wish list.
Jewelry (always!)

Ok Girls...your turn to answer the Christmas Questions!

I don't think I have ever asked for jewelry...funny eh? Def. not something on any of my "wish lists"....I go for things like...pots & pans, cooking utensils, vacuum??!! LOL...

I like unusual Jewelry though...I like either very old or handmade. I don't need diamonds and gold to be happy! ;o)
I also like things for my kitchen...I love WINNERS and all their housewares...

I am planning to make some gift jars of cookies, etc.. consumable gifts are usually a hit with everyone.

I'm not really a jewelry person but am someday wanting a BIG diamond ring... but it can wait till the funds are more plentiful. I have my hot tub so life is great - what more could a girl want.

Oh, I've been asking for a new body for the past 15 years but never seem to get it. I hear it's one of those things you have to just go out and get for yourself!!

Roxanne is almost done her shopping and even has everything wrapped. We maybe sisters but we sure aren't alike in so many areas. Happy shopping girls!!!

I like surprises...Almost any gift is wonderful, but I hate when it is predictable!

When the kids can't wait for me to know what something is that they made or bought, I am the one saying"don't tell me! I don't want to know...I want it to be a SURPRISE!!!"
Not always easy for my hubby either...he gets so proud of himself and just itches to let me in on it.

I like to give things I've made.

* If you’re making gifts this year, what are you making?

I've made soaps to give and the kids teachers will get mugs filled with home made cookies wrapped in a lunch bag that has been sprayed gold and tied with raffia.

Tirzah and I have made some Christmas Tree ornaments for her teacher out of foam balls and scraps of fabric (we will post some pictures later).

They are adorable!!!

* Do you have any good stories about handcrafted gifts you’ve given or received?

My sister makes awesome stained glass stuff.

No. Help!!
Yes, please HELP!

* Name one thing on your personal wish list.
