I just joined a Secret Santa Swap!

Shawnee from the Flirty Apron Swappers is having it and tomorrow is the last day to register!

She also has a little questionarre that she would like us to do to help out our secret partners...

What are your hobbies? Reading, quilting, painting, playing with polymer clay

What are your favorite colors? Pink, orange

Do you collect anything? art books, bits and pieces of things that might be made into something else..buttons and ribbons

Are you allergic to any fibers or animals? nope

Do you have any pets? I have a rottweiler, one giant yellow lab, an orange cat who rules the world, a fluffy cat who doesnt have a brain in his little head and a miniature bunny.

Coffee, Tea, or Chocolate? oh Honey, it is all about the chocolate

What do you like to read? Wow! hard question! Fiction, biographies..not a lot of romances, but occasionally I will pick one up.

Do you prefer Cookies or Candies as a sweet?

I cant decide because I like both!

What is your favorite holiday treat?

homemade sugar cookies with frosting.

Describe your favorite holiday tradition.

With the kids gone, this makes me really sad, but it was always bundling up and going to see the lights and church on Christmas Eve.

Did you believe in Santa as a child?

I still do!

When do you open presents?

It used to be Christmas morning...

Do you put up a tree and when? If not, how do you celebrate?

I always had a giant tree with all the kids ornaments. I bought one every year for them from birth on. I now have them all packed away to give them.

Does your tree have a theme?

Now I have a little pink tree and I have pink, white and silver homemade ornaments.

What has been your favorite gift to give? to receive?

I love to make things for my family that will be special to them. Gift buying for others especially the little kids, is my favorite thing in the world. watching them with their special thing from maga (their word for grandma) is the best gift in the world for me. I have really missed being able to do that this last year!
