Blog Candy Time!!!


Its about that time again for some much needed blog candy. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite holiday is. I am a huge lover of ALL holidays but I would have to say Christmas comes in at the first spot. I will draw a random winner on Sunday July 8th at 9:00p.m. Good luck!! Hugs Ana

Oh and I've also been tagged so here goes seven random things about me...

1. I am terrified of airplanes and when I do get on them I don't like to talk, eat, or get up the whole flight. I am too focused on every detail and sound the airplane is making.
2. I have a huge weak spot for sweets. I think I could give up salty foods and just live of sweets. *yummy*
3. I love ice in my milk.
4. I hate celery...except Certain Celery card stock. *giggle*
5. I have three dogs.. 2 are bulldogs named Chloe and Stormy and the other is a Bichon named Ginger

6. I love to salsa dance.
7. Other than stamping, flower arranging is also my passion of which peonies are my favorite flower.


Now I am going to tag Kirsten, Kim, Tiff, and Stephanie.

Cat said...

Hi Ana! While I love Christmas, my family is all in another state so it just reminds me of what I'm missing out on. So, my favorite holiday is really Memorial Day as it truly marks the start of summer for me! TFS.

Christmas is my favorite holiday, too. I love making cookies & all sorts of goodies for everyone. Love your work--thanks for sharing!

Well Said Cards said...

Hi! My favorite holiday is Halloween. It has always been a time for silliness for my DH and I. Now that we have a daughter, we include her in dressing up for the holiday, going on hay rides and when she's older some haunted houses.

Amy said...

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. It is the one big holiday when I get to cook! Plus, when we're done eating, we put up the Christmas tree and pull out all those Christmas CDs!!!

Nancy said...

My favourite holiday has to be my birthday! I know it's not really a holiday but it combines two of my favourite things... summer and presents!

I know, I'm terrible!

Cindy Keery said...

Christmas is right up there... but I also like to celebrate the little things... like report card day and spelling tests & stuff. Any little accomplishment gets celebrated at our house.

Ingen said...

My favorite holiday is a Dutch one: Queensday on the 30th of April. In the whole country people celebrate the birthday of our queen, they are all dressed in orange, going out on the streets, eating, doing games and having fun. It is so my favorite day of the year :-)

Tracy said...

I would have to say my fav Holiday is New Years! It just feels like a time when everything can start fresh. Love it!

I tried to think of something other than Christmas to be original and different, but who am I kidding? I love Christmas time. :)

Tracy said...

Thanks! Christmas is my favourite by far! Family, food, friends, fantastic!

Michelle (MilwaukeeMommy) said...

It's a toss up between 4th of July ~~ because I *LOVE* summer ~~ & Halloween. Love both. And how funny, I am terrified of flying also!! I flew just once, on my honeymoon (well, okay, twice since we had to come back, lol) & I literally cried most of the 4 hour flight!! I'd love to take my kids to Disney some day.....but it would be a loooooong drive from Wisconsin!

maiahs_momma said...

My fav holiday would have to be Thanksgiving or Christmas, because they bring family together and also the yummy food to boot :D!

stampin_melissa said...

Hmmm, I don't think I have a favorite. If I had to chose one it would probably be Christmas as I love to watch my DS. I also love to shop for him!

It is so sweet of you of offer up some blog candy! I love coming to your site to see your wonderful creations. Thank you!

kraftyscraps said...

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Brings family together with less stress than Christmas!

Tonemor said...

My favorit holiday is christmas. I just love the decorations everywhere and the ligths on the houses around. It just put me in a happy mood.

Laurie K. said...

It's definitely Thanksgiving. Although I was born on Thanksgiving Day (and every so often it falls on my birthday), it's the one day that filled with my two favorite things: food and family. No stress just a great time to get together and enjoy everyone's company.

mnhyrkas said...

My fav holiday is Easter! There is something about springtime and new life that is truly exciting. We also have a family tradition of going kite-flying

Anonymous said...

Christmas is my favorite ever since
I was a child. I loved the decorations, anticipation of Santa and what gifts he would bring. And now with my own Children and their children they love the traditions we have created and continue to share as a family.

Colleen said...

I love Thanksgiving and Christmas, but for me, on a totally selfish note-- I'm picking July 4th. It truly is the only major holiday where I don't cook, we don't have to travel, and we just relax with our kids.
Thanks!

jadell said...

I love Christmas, too! I have really enjoyed watching my boys the last couple of years--they are 4 and 2, and seeing them light up is just the best! :)

Liz said...

My favorite holiday is Christmas because it means being with my family in California and getting away from the snow! I love decorating our tree, fireplace and the smell of fresh baked holiday cookies.

Nikki said...

I definitely have to agree that Christmas is my all time favorite. Who doesn't like to give and receive gifts?! LOL But the best part is seeing my kids faces when they see the tree christmas morning with all the gifts under it....priceless!

sandie c said...

My favourite holiday would have to be Christmas too. It is a time to catch up with all those relatives we don't get to see through the year.It is also when I tend to get in touch with old friend with cards and newsletters.

Connie said...

My favorite holiday is Christmas also. It has become even more special because I have two children in college and love that they have such a long Christmas break.

Kim B said...

I love Christmas too! I think because it seems to last a long time due to shopping, preparing and visiting. I love to see the reaction on my boys faces when they see Santa and come down on Christmas morning. There a such good photos to scrap.

Tara said...

I agree...Christmas is my fav. I do love all holidays too...but there is something about setting up the tree, sitting by it all lit up at night listening to Christmas music...ok I could go on and on...

Hi Ana,

Thank you for posting the instructions for your foldover wallet card. I will be using it at my new catalog stamp camp next week. Your designs are great.

My favorite holiday is definitely Christmas. I love decorating and wrapping presents.

I saw Transformers with dh & my 2 ds and I thought it was great.

Happy Stamping!
Christine

Julie Mutch said...

Hi Ana,

Thanksgiving is my favourite time of the year. It has always been a time that all our family gets together and we have a blast. I love the weather in the Fall. Definitely my favourite time of year! I also got married on the Thanksgiving long weekend 13 years ago, this Fall. :)

Thanks for offering up some great candy! Have a great weekend! :)

Paula said...

I consider my birthday a holiday so it is my favorite. I get to do anything I want because it is my birthday. It is wonderful to just do as I please. Long bubble bath, dinner out, read a book, stamp, anything I want all day long. So my favorite holiday is my birthday.

Connie said...

I have to say "Christmas"! I love the preparation, displays and general good will that goes with that time of year. As the saying goes..."keep Christmas in your heart all year long."

My favorite holiday has always been Halloween. I still love to dress up. Making costumes from scratch, eating candy, roasting pumpkin seeds . . . I love all of it!

Maureen said...

Gotta say it's Thanksgiving. THe family all comes together, there is great food and it kicks off the entire Christmas season. I just love it!

Nancy Grant said...

Mother's Day of course. :-) George Washington's b-day is a strong second. We share the same birthdate minus the year.

Jan Scholl said...

Halloween is my favorite. Love playing dress up and giving out comics instead of candy.
Really dislike Christmas nowadays-I refer to it as the greed day.

Kirsi said...

Hi! My favorite is definitely Christmas.

Leslie Springer said...

Chriatmas has allways been my favoirte time of the year. My childern are still young 8 and 9 yr olds. I just love to see the the joy in their eyes!

Kim Kowal said...

I would have to say Christmas, filled with lots of traditons. Our family usually gets together then too.

KayellWY said...

I would have to say Christmas. Thanksgiving runs close. I just love the atmosphere of Christmas, the music, the feeling of goodwill...

Karen L.

The Crafty Chik said...

Favorite holiday...that's a tough one! I guess I'll say Christmas with Halloween running close behind it! I love to make gifts for the people I care about and Christmas is one big reason to do it! I like Halloween because it allows you creative freedom that you don't get on other holidays! Gifts, costumes, scarey ones, cute ones being with your friends and family! I almost forgot CANDY!! I like any opportunity to be creative, share and enjoy friends, crafting and fun!

Cathy said...

What sweet sweet candy you are sharing with your readers. My fav holiday would be Christmas. It's a time for giving. I love to make my own xmas cards and love to make and alter items for gifts. This is one holiday that the family seems to be able to get together. Thanks for a chance.

melissa f said...

My favorite is Easter.

StampOwl said...

Oh yeah and I'm scared to death of planes too, I don't think I could ever even get on one!
I love your blog and your cards are to die for!

Love your work!

I was going to say Christmas but changed my mind. I love Valentines Day. Perhaps I am a closet romantic. I think it is nice to let friends and family know you love them in a special way.

Pattyjo said...

Christmas is my favorite. I love everything about it. Tree, Snow, Santa, Cards, Family get togethers, carolers everything!

Anonymous said...

Like many my favorite holiday is Christmas. The anticipation of getting ready, the smells of the baking cookies and the tree, pulling out the decorations and remembering the memory behind each ornament, and so much more. And best of all, remembering why we celebrate Christmas as we gather together.

Angel W said...

Absolutely positively CHRISTmas!!!

Márcia Mattos said...

My favorite holiday is also Christmas!!!
I love eveything about it!!!
And love to decorate home for it!

Robin D said...

Christmas is my favorite, especially since our son moved across the country. It's the only time I am assured I'll get to see him! And it's a whole season, not just one day!

Anonymous said...

I would have to say my favorite holiday is Easter. We have Easter at my house every year and all my family members come and spend precious time together. I think it's the only time throughout the year that just about all family members are present all at one place. TFS

My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love all the baking, music, decorating, family times. Thanks for offering the blog candy!

Definitely Christmas! It's a season, not just one day, and it's about giving. Not just gifts, which are great when lots of thought is put into them, but also about enhancing a feeling of love, making memories, doing nice things for others, strangers as well as family and friends.

Love your checking your blog everyday! I DESPISE celery too! Although it really is one of my favorite SU! colors!!!!

jmniffer said...

I like Christmas the best. All the things that make it special, from food and parties to decorations and family traditions. Jenny

Jan said...

My favorite is Independence Day (July 4th) because of the patriotism and the red, white and blue and the cookouts and fireworks. I will say, however, that it is not the best holiday for stampin' cards. For that I prefer Valentines Day.

Christi said...

Christmas has to be my favorite. It's the birth of my Savior Jesus Christ and there is something in the air that time of year. It just feels special.

I do love all holiday's but Christmas is the only holiday that is an entire season and not just one day. :)

foodpartyfun said...

Christmas and the whole month of December is my favorite. Thanks for sharing!

Melodie said...

Pick Me Pick Me!! I love your Blog, You are amazing! I wish I could do what you do! all the different colores, patterns, images and accessories all on one card! not my talent. on to the question, My favorite holiday would have to be Halloween. I got married 2 days before (because Halloween fell on a Monday) I love the fall setting with pumpkins and corn stalks! Now with little kiddies of my own I love the costumes.

Flossie's Follies said...

Christmas is up there, I love getting gifts, but would have to go with Thanksgiving, it is family time and is less hectic than Christmas.

Linda SS said...

Definitely Christmas, the birth of my Savior! I love the excitment of the holiday and all the festivities that go along with it. It also provides me the perfect opportunity to spoil my darling little grandchildren:) Thank you for offering blog candy.

Stephanie said...

Hi Ana! My favorite holiday would have to be Christmas as well :] I love the season, the shopping, and the yummy food! hehehehe. Btw, I just got a Provo Craft Sew Crafty Mini so I could start sewing paper patterns together and well...whatdya know...I can't sew straight! How do you do it? lol.

Stamp4hobby said...

My favorite is Halloween. :) It is so much fun to walk around with the kids and pass out candy. We always decorate the outside of our house to make it look spooky. :) Sometimes it snows here on Halloween and that's kind of a bummer. :(

Pat's Paper Passion said...

Easter...that's my favorite holiday. I love the pastel colors, freshness of spring, Easter brunch, and it's a four day weekend for me.

Barb said...

Christmas is mine.. but then I'm a Christmas Eve baby!!

My favorite is Christmas. It's the one holiday that I know I'll be able to see all of my family together. And I love making a ton of special cookies and candies that I never make at any other time.

Jenn D said...

I love Peonies too, but I hate the ants that are attracted to them.

My favorite #1 holiday is Thanksgiving. I love getting together with my family and enjoying way too much good food.

Jolene said...

Sue said...

I would have to say christmas is my favourite holiday - especially having kids and seeing their faces light up opening their presents, even though the present doesnt seem as interesting to a 2 year old as the paper and boxes lol :)

That little cupcake stamp is just gorgeous *yummy*

Have a beautiful day x Sue x

Heather Leech said...

Hi!
My favorite holiday is Christmas. My birthday is December 1 and we have a family tradition that our tree goes up on my birthday (or as close to as possible). My hubby is sweet and also gets so into the Christmas spirit. We decorate the house and the front of the house. It's a wonderful time! Thanks for a chance at some awesome candy!!

Hi there and the timing is just great!
My favourite holiday is going to Bali, yippee tomorrow in fact. This will be our third time. We have been with our friends, with our 2 oldest children and 2morrow with the youngest too!
Its a time of relaxing and being waited on, just spoilt and bonding with eachother.
The cases are almost packed:) lol

Ashley said...

Halloween. I love to get scared, love horror movies, love the decorations, love the smell of fall, the leaves in the damp grass. Kids at my preschool will talk about what they are going to be for Halloween for about a year, as if it were the next day.
I love black cats, ghosts, pumpkins, gourds, bats. I used to have two rubber skeletons that were about 12" long that I would play with. They were married and had a rubber bat pet. Yes, I am sick.

Anonymous said...

Beth said...

Hi Ana, wow, what lovely goodies. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Easter is my favourite holiday because it is a true celebration through church, and spring arrives then. That means, no more snow, hopefully.

cookiebaker said...

Hi Ana,
You are so talented, just want you to know how much I love your blog.

Favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because it's the beginning of the time of year when everyone is festive, happy and giving.

greetingsbydebra said...

To be totally honest, most traditional holidays stress me out and disappoint me. :(

So my favorite {made up} holiday is New TAC Catalog Day!!!! I look forward to it more than Christmas. :)

Jan Hunnicutt said...

My favorite holiday is Christmas, I love making things and watching friends and family open what I've made for them.

Denise said...

My fave is definitely Christmas. I listen to Christmas music ALL year long. I have a CD of Christmas tunes in my truck at this very moment and I love to hum Christmas tunes!

The Stampin' Soldier said...

Does my birthday count as a holiday? I always ask off from work, so I like to pretend it's one. Other than that I'd say Christmas followed by Thanksgiving. Food & Presents!!!


PS Don't forget to sign up for the blog candy at my site too! Good luck!

Debbie McKelvey said...

I love most holidays, however, I love Halloween the most. I love to see all the costumes the kids wear and the excitement they get on their faces when they get their treat.

I also want to say how much I enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing with all of us.

dd2njoy said...

My inky escape said...

My favorite holiday is definately Christmas! I started a family tradtion 23 yrs ago and that is my kids and I make cut out sugar cookies and frost them. We usually make about 300 of them and give them out to family and friends. My cookies are a huge hit and they are all done by scratch!

Nice blog you have here.

My Little Hobby said...

I enjoy your blog, cute cards with many layers, and have had you on my blog roll from the time I started mine!

I am one of those odd people who likes my own birthday! I like all the main holidays though. Instead of one, I usually like to say my favorite season, which is unquestionably the fall. It covers all my top choices, including my b/d. --Kelly

Sonya R said...

I hope I'm not too late for this.

My Favourite holiday would have to be Mother's Day.
Because I get breakfast in bed and lots of precious presents that the kids made at school especially for me.

Dawn Thomas said...

My favorite holiday would have to be Thanksgiving long weekend in October. The nights are cooler, the air smells crisp, the leaves are changing. Love it!
Always a great weekend, to spend some time reading, baking and stamping, and then snuggle into those flannel sheets at bedtime!
Dawn Thomas

tanja said...

My favorite holiday has to be Christmas. It really lasts the longest. There is so much celebrating. My DH has turned our house into "the Griswold's", which used to annoy me and now I wouldn't have it any other way. My goal this year is to get cards done this summer as I'm a teacher and the holidays are so very hectic. I love the spirit of Christmas.
