Snowy crafting.

Yes, we did get snow yesterday. As much as I’ve complained about winter over the years, I do enjoy it. I enjoy brisk winter mornings and seeing my breath as I walk outside. I love seeing snow falling as I sit indoors drinking tea. I don’t love clearing off my car or driving in snowy weather, but […]

Crafty weekend.

This past weekend was excellent. Much like last Saturday, I spent this Saturday in New Hampshire with some of my knitting friends. I hadn’t seen a couple of them since 2014! We ate delicious food, caught up on our lives, and crafted all the things. I got home just after 9pm and I spent the rest […]

Holiday dislikes / Reverb 16

Just Not That Into It: Everyone has their own tipping point. What do you hate dislike about the holidays? The one thing I really dislike about the holidays is the focus on commercialism. I like to give a couple little gifts to people, but I always feel a huge pressure to buy more and more […]

Thirty five.

I am 35 years old today. It’s kind of been a tradition for me to post about my birthday, at least when I’ve written in my blog more often.  I also thought I’d be used to my birthday being on Christmas by now, but I still get more excited about Christmas first and remember later in […]

All about Santa

Today’s prompt is about Santa! Or, more about treats, but eh. If you celebrate Christmas, do you put out anything for Santa? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, tell us about your favourite treat you like to receive. I believed in Santa growing up. I thought the tradition was fun, but since I’m the oldest of […]

I love Christmas socks!

So many of these questions feel like repeats of each other! I’m certain I answered a prompt about Christmas traditions the first week, but I’ll focus this post on a new tradition I started last year, a tradition involving Christmas socks! If you celebrate Christmas this week, tell us about your Christmas traditions. If you don’t […]

Gift opening traditions

Finally, back to the Christmas related questions! Answering questions about holiday traditions is the reason why I wanted to do these prompts in the first place, so I’m glad to be back to it. Today’s prompt is about gift opening traditions! If you celebrate Christmas, what is your gift-opening tradition? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, […]

Holiday candy!

What is your favorite holiday candy? Where do I begin with this? As any of you who know me well know, I love candy. Love it. Christmas isn’t my favorite candy holiday (that goes to Easter, because Mini Eggs and jelly beans are awesome), but it’s close. I absolutely love Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s Peanut […]

Holiday food I dislike

Today’s prompt is a short one! I don’t like talking much about holiday food I dislike. What food do you always reject on the holiday table? Why? People might think I’m weird, but I can’t stand green bean casseroles! I never have! I’m not a huge fan of green beans to begin with, so an […]

Holiday cookies are my favorite.

Today’s prompt is all about one of my favorite parts of the holidays: cookies! I almost never bake cookies, but holiday cookies? Yes please. Teach us how to make your favorite holiday recipe. I love making sugar cookies around the holidays. My favorite recipe came from a magazine I found about 9 years ago, but […]
