It's fun to be on the ground floor of someone's blog.
I am looking forward to the Holidays because we will be spending the time with our daughter in her new house out on her Texas farm. Lots of baby animals to pet and open space where you can contemplate the coming new year. Merry Christmas!

I am looking forward to getting to spend the Holidays with our family! We moved away 4 years ago and had spent the last 4 years by ourselve and we only has 2 boys then now we have 4 so it is nice for them to get to share all of the family traditions! For the NEW YEAR I am making it less stressful and more fun!I figure those are 2 things that I can control!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
PS I found out about your blog from Karen at Watercoloreddreams!!!
Thanks Karen!!!

What am looking forward to this Holiday Season? The colors, sights, and sounds! All of which I love to incorporate into creative projects! Browsing the many artistic blogs is always a fabulous way to get my creativity flowing again! I love the holidays and put into them as much energy as I can muster! Then, when it's all over I never feel like I didn't do enough! Happy Holidays!!!

I look forward to time after Christmas to devote to cleaning my stamp room...affectionately called my Crap Room ;-) All the "required" stamping will be done, and it will be time for "me" stamping! Kathy McD

Tammy said...

I enjoy the magic that Christmas brings. Life is so short that you need to make time for yourself to do what you enjoy doing. I look forward to seeing your creations in the new year. Best of luck to you.

I am looking forward to DS Christmas concert and DS school skating on friday and just hanging out with the family.

Added this blog to my favorites:)

Dale Anne said...

I am looking forward to seeing family & some friends over the holidays and especially looking forward to tasting my Mom's turkey stuffing again!!!

Allison said...

OK...I'll play.

I am looking forward to seeing my kids (especially my three-year old son) open their presents. He will be giddy and will either focus on one present to the dismay of any and all gift-givers or will be so distracted that he simply won't be able to keep up!

My one-year old girl will make her own special sound whenever she watches Sesame Street since Grandma bought her an Elmo TMX.

Thanks for adding yourself to the queue...if you are interested, come see mine!

P.S. I linked here from Karen's site.

Natasha said...

I'm looking forware to seeing my brother and sister. I haven't seen my brother since last Christmas, and I can't wait for all of us to be together and play some extreme cribbage and some crokinole. There are sure to be plenty of laugh till the stomach aches, moments.

Hey. I think your artwork is fine. Have confidence.

Tonight my 3 yr old songs at her school.. that will be priceless to me. I'll be the mom in the front waving and crying those happy/proud that's my baby tears. :}
I do hope you find the time to spned on your own pleasures in the New Year.
I am looking forward to quiet times with my husband after the kids are asleep. Big doe eyes Christmas Morning when the littlest of my pack come down the stairs all sleepy eyed and find the wonders of Christmas under their very own tree.

The snow if we are lucky glistening on the tree limbs, icicles dripping in the days sun...the sound of Christmas music while we watch the kids open their gift & we yell 'no, wait I need the camera' a hundred times... :}
My favorite all time Christmas Movie (Christmas Story)with the little boy who wants a BB gun. Ralphie.. but he is over and over told he'll shoot his eye out.. How they have chinese food for Christmas dinner when the neighbor dogs attack their turkey. The way the Mom knows her hubby is in the kitchen trying to sneak some turkey ..becasue moms have eyes in the backs of their heads.. Don't we??
Merry Chritmas to you and I hope your New Year is Bright. Happy Hugs KimK
Keep blogging into my faves you'll go. :}

I'm looking forward to the moment we all sit down, our family of 4, to a quiet and peaceful...full of thanksgiving Christmas Dinner. I always cook TONS of food that we don't normally eat, so it's a fun taste time as well as a time to reflect on what it means to be a strong family of 4...with God on our side. New Year's Day is spent with a huge brunch of more new recipes, parades on T.V. and movies. Time to start another year with new goals, anticipation for new adventures...and another new exercise plan! HA!
Thanks for the opportunity to add a comment to your blog!
I'm a cyber friend of Karen F., so glad she shared YOU with me!
May God bless you and yours abundantly!

I am looking forward to sending time with my family and friends. To staring new projects and perhaps my own blog. I spend more time on my Stamping Up Business.

Susan H said...

How fun and exciting - a new blog! I look forward to my family's "leftover" party - we get together the day after Christmas and everybody brings their leftover food and we pig out!!
Plus, my resolution is to stamp more, more, more!!

Julesiana said...

I am looking forward to spending time with my husband's family. (I actually like my inlaws).

I am a teacher and am looking forward to a much needed break. Students are so excited this time of year, and so I am . We kind of drive each other into a frenzy and then are all exhausted LOL!
Love another blog to read!!

Pat said...

I am looking forward to sharing Christmas with my brother and his wife, in Indiana. Last time we tried this, I got to see the most beautiful blizzard! Beautiful from inside the house... Not so much from outside in the car, trying to drive in it :)

Your artwork is truly beautiful! I am bookmarking your blog and look forward to being inspired by you. I am looking forward to spending time with my husband! He has 18 days off and we are very excited. He is taking me on a road trip to a stamp store that I only get to once a year. He is so patient and allows me to spend hours in there. I'm also looking forward to our big Christmas Eve dinner with my children. Have a wonderful Christmas and the very best New Year!

I found your blog thanks to Karen at Water Colored Dreams!

What am I looking forward to?

On November 20th I had surgery and I've been out of work since, unable to return until 12/26--we weren't planning on my being out of work this long so Christmas has taken a backseat for us this year.

I told the kids that 'santa' needed to make sure all the bills were situated for them month and it didn't leave us much for presents. The response was that it was okay we could rent movies and have a big turkey meal instead! lol

This has been the most stress-free December that I have ever had. Everyone is getting one item on their wish list and their stockings will be filled with lots of great little goodies and chocolate and Christmas day we will be laying around watching movies and enjoying some good food! My kids have taught me that I don't have to give them everything--Christmas is really about the little things!!

What a fun giveaway! A motivator that I'm using for the new year is to make time to stamp/create every week and to set a goal to make 5-10 Christmas cards every month so that when December 2007 rolls around I'll be ahead of the game (maybe!).

Blogging is so much fun :-) Careful - it's addicting!
My favorite holiday thing is the kids opening their gifts. I love the excitement of the morning!!
Good luck on your blog and thanks for entering me into your contest!
