Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop! So excited!!!!

You should have arrived here from Patti at Short ‘N Scrappy at
. If you just stumbled across the hop, and you’d like to start at the beginning, hop over to Karelj’s blog at to start at the beginning. After my stop, you should head over to Kay Craig at 100 Things at

Karelj is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She thought it would be fun to have some holiday-themed candy for this hop--but, of course, made-up holiday items were hard to come by! She decided to do a whole bunch of *regular* holiday themed stamps for you to enjoy. From Fiskars, there is an assorted holiday set; there's an alphabet from All Night Media, a set of 100 plus clear stamps and a storage case from Family Memories, and 5 sets of clear stamps from various dollar bins in big box stores. How to win them? Follow along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Monday, Karelj will ask her buddy Randy ( to select a blog number (from the list), a day (Saturday is one, Sunday is two), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner

My holiday is Favorite Things! I got the idea while watching Oprah's Favorite Things one year and ding went a light bulb. I wanted to do something with all my closest friends and came up with the idea of a Favorite Things Party.
Every year I invite my closest friends and we gather at my house. Everyone brings something that is their FAVORITE THING. Whether it be a candle, stationary, toe socks, fingernail polish, etc. They bring one for everyone. During the party we share why its our favorite thing and have a ton of stuff to take home at the end of the party! Everyone looks forward to it every year.
This year I've decided to do something a little different. We're doing our favorite things in the kitchen. They are all bringing their favorite dish to share with everyone AND an item to use in the kitchen. Here is the invite that I'm sending out. I can't wait to get together with all my gals.
