Holiday Favorite


Welcome to the Pals September 2018 Blog Hop. The 2018 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Is out and the Pals are excited! Sit back while we share creations from “Our Favorite Holiday”.


You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.


As you can see the topic is our favorite Holiday.  I love Halloween, but is short lived and not a lot of fun with children not in the house.  So I have to say Christmas is truly my Holiday.  It takes me a minimum of four days to decorate all three floors.  I put up three Christmas trees and they are not small ones.  Even the bathrooms get decorated.  Along with the hallways and balcony come the greenery.  The fireplace is decorated and the grandchildren’s stockings are hung over the fireplace. Each grandchild has their name on their stocking.  No detail can be missed for Christmas.  Happy Holidays!

So my card has the first thing that goes on the Christmas trees.  The lights of course and I have to say not my favorite part of decorating the trees. They always seem to get tangled, but they sure make the decorations stand out.
