MY VIEWS | | December 1, 2009 at 11:04 pm

My awesome friend Jyl from Twitter’s famous GNO (Girl’s Night Out) Twitter parties tagged me to a contest entry on Mom It Forward and I barely enter contests (too busy dishing my own out) . Anyway there are oodles of prizes to enter so go and check it out yourself (and enter too) but my reason to post this is it sounds fun to share these with you.


TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you. You should enter too, over $3,800 worth of prizes in store.

1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year?

  1. Get a job!
  2. Take a vacation – anywhere!
  3. A new PC – 2 PCs and 1 laptop crashed in our home all within a month, go figure.
  4. Get a pedicure!
  5. Buy myself a dress (I so need the pick-me-up)

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?

  • A card from my daughter for my birthday. I was away at Atlanta for the Blogalicious conference and by the time I arrived home she was asleep but I loved the card.

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?

  • A scrapbook or scrap album/frame.

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?

5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?

  • A kid camera and dress up clothing (especially wings).

6. What is your favorite holiday food?

  • Biryani (not what you would typically expect, but then again neither am I)

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?

  • Going to attempt to make some smancy-fancy cookies especially inspired with a book from Good Housekeeping. Don’t tell me that is not hand crafting.

8. What is your favorite holiday movie?

9. Favorite holiday song?

  • Mary’s Boy Child – but only sung by Boney M (actually any of the holiday songs sung by Boney M)

    going to iTunes to figure out who BoneyM is — fully expecting to see someone like Snoop Dog in a Santa suit!

    I think cookies should definitely be considered a hand-made craft, because if so, I can totally mark that one off my list this season ;) !

    Going to check out Boney M as well!

    Happy Holidays! Thanks for playing!!! If I win, I’ll totally share with you :) .
