Mimi Leinbachis another one of those gals I have been blessed to have meet. She is so talented and I am glad she lives close enough that we can get together for lunch once in a while. She always creates such beautiful things. Mimi created a hybrid layout using a combination of Winter Wrap Digital Kit and English Garden Collection. I have to give kudos to my design team who stretched to design differently using both digital and traditional scrapbooking supplies.
Christmas Eve's as a child were the best! We spent the evening
with close friends and family having a big meal, exchanging gifts
and laughing late into the night. It always made the holiday so
special! When we returned home my parents would let us each
open one gift before bed...the choice of picking just one gift to
open could almost be torturous but at the same time so very
exciting! Off to bed we went...or at least tried to as we kept one
ear open for Santa!
The best gift you ever received?
My Grandmother died when I was young but a few year back my
Mom wrapped up my Grandmother's charm bracelet and gave it
to me as a Christmas gift. I cried like a baby...I still remember
seeing my Grandmother wear it to all her special events and it
mean so much for me to have it.
What is your favorite holiday indulgence?
How do I pick! Pumpkin Cheesecake or Peanut Blossom
Cookies? I can't decide!
Do you have any special or unique holiday traditions?
I have my own little tradition...bow night! My gift are always wrapped
before the week of Christmas but then I hide them in containers
in my basement so the kiddo's won't find them. On Christmas Eve
after the kids are asleep and in bed...all the wrapped gifts are
pulled out and decorated with lots of bows, ribbons, and little
goodies. I love dressing them up!
What is on your wish list this year?
My weakness is anything Coach...I am hoping Santa thought I
was good and a new purse may be in my future!
