Flirty Apron's Secret Santa Swap

What an adorable banner for a fun swap!  I've joined the Flirty Apron's Secret Santa Swap after telling myself that I wasn't going to do it.  I love to make handmade gifts and never get all of them finished that I have on my list, but after reading about this fun swap I just couldn't resist.  Part of the fun is the questionnaire that we are to fill out so that our secret partners can learn a bit about us~

What are your hobbies?  I love to knit, bake and sew

What are your favorite colors?  I am very "favorite color fickle".  It changes all the time, but right now I'm really loving reds

Do you collect anything?  I have a small collection of vintage aprons and also a bit bigger collection of vintage classic hardback books

Are you allergic to any fibers or animals? Yes, but not enough to stop me from knitting with wool anyway!

Do you have any pets?  We have a Great Pyrenees dog, Gus - and two cats, Boots and Mr. Thomas O'Malley

Coffee, Tea, or Chocolate? Both coffee and tea!

What do you like to read?  I LOVE to read!  Historical fiction based on fact is my favorite genre, but I read much more than that.  I also love cookbooks and craft magazines.

Do you prefer Cookies or Candies as a sweet? Cookies, but I very rarely turn my nose up at candy either!

What is your favorite holiday treat? Pumpkin pie and hot holiday coffee and tea flavors

Describe your favorite holiday tradition. Driving around looking at Christmas lights with Christmas music playing along

Did you believe in Santa as a child? What do you mean as a child?  I still do!

When do you open presents?  We have always opened one gift on Christmas eve and the rest on Christmas morning.  The Christmas eve gift started as a get together with the grandparents and opening the gifts to and from them and we have carried that tradition on

Do you put up a tree and when? If not, how do you celebrate? Yes, we put up a real tree generally the second weekend of December

Does your tree have a theme? Not really.  The last couple of years our tree has been decorated in mostly blue, silver and red because our living room walls are blue, but we also still put up some of the kids favorite traditional decorations from when they were small.

What has been your favorite gift to give? to receive?  I love to both give and recieve handmade goodness~

Hope you all are getting into the festive holiday season!

Yes, I'm getting into the holiday spirit. The weather is cooperating nicely. The lake froze over last night & there is a thin layer of snow on the ground.
