20 Questions

I am so excited to be participating in the Sweet Sister Holiday Swap! It's three months long and really gives everyone a great opportunity to get to know their swap partner, as well as everyone else participating. The swappy organizing gals are so creative to come up with this unique extended swap! And I am thrilled to get to know my swap sister Gigi! Take a look at her pictures- her cookies are about the most amazing thing I have ever seen! I had so much fun with the last swap and love that it resulted in a fabu crafty buddy, sweet Cindy. This swap is sure to be just as fun and exciting!

To start off the swap experience, we are all asked to help our swap partners get to know us better by answering the following 20 questions....

1. Favorite Color: pink and green
2. Chocolate Lover? Milk, Dark, White, or none of the above? Honestly, none of the above. Well, that's not true. I like cookies and brownies. But as for eating chocolate candy, no thanks.
3. What is your favorite craft hobby? sewing, painting, cooking, baking
4. What is a craft/art hobby that you would like to start? I used to scrapbook but I have not done any in years. One of these days I will get back to it though because I have an obnoxious amount of scrappy supplies stored away for future use. And I would love to learn to needle point one of these days too.
5. What craft do you NOT have an interest in or just not great in ( so your partner doesn’t send something you wouldn’t use)? Well I already have a ton of scrap stuff. And I don't have much interest in knitting.
6. Do you have any allergies? (we don’t want to send anything with peanuts if it’ll make you blow up like a balloon!) nope
7.What’s your favorite part of Halloween? Decorating, candy eating, costumes, or something else? oh I just love everything about both Fall and Halloween- candy, decor, kids in costumes, Fall flavors and big pots of yummy soup
8. Do you decorate for Thanksgiving/Fall? for fall- with squash and fall leaves
9. December Holidays--what holiday do you celebrate? What type of decorations do you like to put up in your house for that holiday? Christmas- the usual fresh tree with beautiful ornaments, stockings, garlands, and hours of Christmas Cd's
10. Do you have any children, if so what are their ages, boys/girls? one furry little girl with four paws, Sadie Kate, age five
11. Do you have any pets, if so what kind? one furry little girl with four paws, Sadie Kate, age five, Sheltie
12. Are you a reader? If so, what type of books do you like? I love to read and am all about fun, light-hearted chic lit. And Harry Potter (though BB I am still refusing to read the last book- I am just not ready and feel it is my prerogative to wait!)
13. Are you celebrating a birthday or anniversary in October, November, or December? If so, what day and what is the occasion? nope
14. Do you collect anything? If so what type of things do you collect? not really. I love many things like aprons and various baking items. But I don't necessarily have a specific collection.
15. What type of things do you like to cook? Are you an appetizer person, cookie maker, dessert freak or a take out type of person?? Oh it totally depends on my mood. I love LOVE dips and appetizers and will happily make a meal out of them if I can. I love to make holiday cookies but rarely make them other times of the year for some reason. I am an excellent pie baker. I take a lot of pride knowing my crust tastes great and my filling is huge. They are rustic and I personally find that so much more exciting that the perfect pies in the grocery store. I love to make foods according to the season and find that I cook savory dishes a lot more in the colder months. Nothing I make is fancy, but it almost always tastes delish.
16. What is your favorite scent? Is there one that you can’t stand? Fresh coffee, baked goods, cinnamon, apple cider. I don't really care for floral scents- they make me sneeze.
ok, after reading a few blogs I realize this is asking what scents I like to wear. And that answer is very few. Something very light if anything- I have allergies.
17. What’s your favorite song? Just one? "Puff the Magic Dragon" by Peter Paul and Mary. When I was a little girl my Dad would let me stay up late to watch them on PBS because they would always end with Puff. To this day I can probably sing you most of their songs. But Puff is just one of those special childhood memories that never fails to make me smile.
18. What’s the last movie you went to see at the movie theater? Um...I have no idea. That's so sad that I really have no clue. Clearly I am not much of a movie buff. When the Oscars roll around I am lucky to have heard of more than 5 of the movies up for awards.
19. What’s your favorite Candy? OMG, while I don't care for chocolate I do have a HUGE sweet tooth! I love all that bad-for-you-stick-in-your-teeth sugar crap like Twizzlers, Hot Tamales, Swedish Fish, gummy worms, Dots, and Smarties.
20. Tea or Coffee or other? Decaf coffee- mmmmmm!
