Secret Santa Swap

I love doing swaps. I'm completely addicted to them. I love making things for other people and getting a surprise in the mail. It's like Christmas or my birthday.

This time, I'm doing a secret Santa swap and the swap hostess has asked that we each post this on our blogs:

  1. What are your hobbies? Sewing and cooking
  2. What are your favorite colors? Right now, I'm loving turquoise and red
  3. Do you collect anything? i like snowglobes, snowmen, teacups and cookbooks
  4. Are you allergic to any fibers or animals? dogs
  5. Do you have any pets? a cat named Josefina de la Gato
  6. Coffee, Tea, or Chocolate? Hot Chocolate is one of my FAVORITES as is apple cider. I don't drink any coffee or tea.
  7. What do you like to read? whatever is a free book on my kindle LOL
  8. Do you prefer Cookies or Candies as a sweet? depends on the mood. I can't eat hard candies or cookies (bad teeth), so whatever is needs to be soft, but not sticky.
  9. What is your favorite holiday treat? so many to choose from! hot chocolate, candy cane hershey kisses, caramel apple cider...
  10. Describe your favorite holiday tradition. Oh goodness. We have cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning. I love doing that for breakfast. I love holiday music and I start playing it November 1. Christmas for me starts early November when I go back to work...with my boss SANTA! That's right, I am Santa's helper. For real! I work at the mall taking photos of kids with Santa and I love it. I drag my kids every year to get their picture taken with Santa. I look forward to it sooo very much!
  11. Did you believe in Santa as a child? Yup
  12. When do you open presents? One present Christmas Eve, and the rest in the morning
  13. Do you put up a tree and when? If not, how do you celebrate? We usually get a tree the Saturday closest to D's birthday, which is the Dec. 14.
  14. Does your tree have a theme? I try to change it with a color scheme each year. The family protests. One of these years we're going to have two trees. One for me to decorate and one for the family :P Not sure what colors I'm using this year. BUT for the first time ever, our tree is going to be very tall and visible from all around. New house with 10 ft ceilings and full window view of the tree.
  15. What has been your favorite gift to give? to receive? I'm not sure what my favorite gift to give has been. I just love seeing my family smile. To receive? To be honest, the gift of Jesus' birth, His life, His Death and His resurrection has been the greatest gift I've ever received. Nothing can really top that.

  1. How fun that you're a Santa's helper. When my husband experienced a long-term unemployment, I made him a Santa suit and that's how we funded OUR Christmas for several years.

    SO glad you joined in!


Thanks and have a great day!
