Shawnee is hosting her Secret Santa Swap again this year !!! I have taken part before, and what a lovely treat to get a Secret Santa Package in the mail ...... just for you :-)
To make it easier for our Secret Santa to put together the perfect package, we have a few questions to answer .... it makes it so much easier if you know what your partners like and dislikes are, so here we go .....

What are your hobbies
I love all things crafty ..... I sew, knit, crochet, scrapbook and bake just about daily ....
What are your favorite colors
Pink, black, white for everyday, but at Christmas red, gold, midnight blue and Christmas green make a strong showing
Do you collect anything
Allergies to any fibres or animals
Do you have any pets
A turtle, some fish, a leopard gekko and some toads (they are really the kids pets)
Coffee, tea or chocolate
All 3, but the tea must be hot, and plain..... no fancy flavors for me:-)
What do you like to read
I absolutely love stories about the Amish ...... I find their way of life fascinating, and their dedication to their faith very inspiring.
Cookies or candy
Definately chewy candy
Favorite Holiday Treat
Vanilla Tootsie Rolls - I always buy a few extra bags at Christmas to last me through the year
Favorite Holiday Tradition
I make the kids Advent Calendars every year. I also make Christmas PJ'S for us, that we wear on Christmas Eve. We go to Church on Christmas Eve too ...... I absolutely LOVE our Church's Christmas Eve service. This is always followed by dinner at our local Italian Resurant with close family friends of ours.
 Did you believe in Santa
When do you open gifts
Christmas morning
Do you put up a tree
Yes, the first weekend in December
Favorite gifts to give and recieve
Hands down it's handmade gifts - I think they're precious and priceless. Last year my daughter made me a lap quilt - it was a complete surprise ..... she had learned to sew at school just a few weeks earlier. That little quilt is one of my most treasured possessions.


  1. Thanks for posting -- so glad you're swapping with us!
