Wow Kelly, you sure are generous. I love the K & Company "candy", buttons, etc. and it all matches which makes it so much easier to use. My favorite holiday tradition is going to the Nutcracker performed by Ballet West each year with my extended family. It is especially fun to see the magic in my nieces' eyes. They always get a new Holiday dress to wear to it. Even my uncultured BIL enjoys the tradition. He says it gets better every year. LOL!

Yummy candy!!! my favorite tradition still has to be watching all the christmas movies. the grinch, rudolph, a christmas story. it so fun to snuggle in with hot chocolate and watch a classic!!

Cass said...

I just enjoy spending the day with my family, starting with pancakes for breakfast. Yum!

Elaine said...

I'm not sure if I enjoy watching the kids open their gifts more or watching their faces as we open our gifts FROM them!

I love making Christmas shortbread - and now my 3 1/2 year old loves to bake with me so he can't wait for us to make some this year!

Our newest tradition is participating in Prelude in Kennebunkport Maine. It's very festive and santa even comes in on a lobster boat. Tonight were heading out to cocoa, cookies and a tree lighting :)

Lovely blog candy!!
I am a fairly new visitor of your blog, so I have lots of catching up to do because I just love your style! Thanks for sharing!
My favourite holiday tradition is
hosting the Christmas Nativity at our farm for our Friendship group.
And of course, spending time with family.
Have a great day, Anja

I love cards so keep those coming. I am always looking for more ways to use my cuttlebug and all of the folders and dies! HAve a great weekend!

Kerry J. said...

Such pretty looking candy!! It's so hard to pick just one fave tradition. I think Christmas morning though - opening stockings on our bed in our pjs. So much fun!

Cecile said...

Hi Kelly,
I love checking my google reader to see your updates - you have such a great eye for design!
One of my favorite holiday traditions is actually quite recent for me. In Austin, my family and friends go to the Trail of Lights at Zilker Park, where you go through a path with different lighted displays. At the end of the path, my best friend and I always get a large bag of delicious, fresh cooked kettle corn. Yummy!

On a Friday night during the winter school break, we light a fire in the fireplace and let all the kids sleep on the floor in sleeping bags in front of the fireplace. They absolutely LOVE doing this and beg to do it again and again.

Brenda said...

Awesome candy. My favorite tradition is decorating the Christmas tree with my son, he enjoys it so much and we always have a wonderful time. Thank you for the chance to win such great candy.

Hi Kelly! Awesome blog candy! I love all your wonderful designs. My favorite christmas tradition is shopping for and then staying up real late to put together awesome christmas stockings with items personally picked for each person. Even though my son is now older, I will continue the stocking tradition! -mama_shopping_bear@yahoo.com (aka Elizabeth)

Shelby said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making cookies with my mom. It's a special day that's set aside just for the two of us to enjoy each other's company, make cookies, and listen to Christmas music. :)

I love K & Co.Products!My favorite holiday tradition is attending the candlelight service at our church on Christmas Eve. I would enjoy more simple card samples and tutorials on your blog (which I thoroughly enjoy). Thanks,

Hi Kelly! I love your blog! My family Christmas tradition is making our gingerbread house! I just found a new book called the Gingerbread Architect which has all kinds of AWESOME ideas. We are going to try to incorporate one or two new ideas into our house this year! I'm making the dough today!!

Suzan in Australia said...

Your blog has just inspired me. those colours just sing to my soul. I have a few more cards to write and they have to be made first so I am pleased for the inspiration.

Our favourite tradition is to make our own cakes and puddings in the English style. Everyone has input. Grandad always wants more rum and I want more nuts and so on. But the most important thing is that everyone has to stir the mix and those who are not with us are included. It is fun to watch a toddler stir the sticky mess while pretending to be a loved one who is far away. By the time we finish everyone is exhausted and we are all wishing the pudding didn't take so long to boil in the cloth.

LeAnne said...

Love your banner, first of all! Our favorite tradition is to go to church Christmas eve, then come home to my brother's. He makes the same eggnog recipe that my mom, and my grandmother before her, made....REAL eggs and all the other bad stuff you're not supposed to have. We all sleep VERY WELL Christmas eve!
Thanks for the chance to win, this is awesome candy==blessings to you & your family!

Terri E. said...

Fabulous! Well our new tradition will be to have my Mom and Dad over on Christmas Day with just my family. Everyone is off with their other families, so it is a great time for us to have some quality time.

It's a good life!

MaryBeth said...

Our holiday traditions have remained the same for many years. We always have a traditional Italian feast on Christmas Eve, egg nog french toast on Christmas morning after opening presents and then Christmas dinner with family and friends.
Thank you for giving me a chance to win such awesome blog candy! Thanks, Kelly!

Karen from Ontario said...

Hi Kelly, Love your blog and love your style. I think my fav. Christmas tradition is going to church on Christmas eve then having a dinner afterwards at my inlaws house. It is very relaxing and is a great way to spend the night before Christmas.
Thanks for a chance to win.

Danielle said...

We celebrate the Dutch Christmas. Sinter Klass. You put your wooden shoe out on Friday, December 5, and the next morning has filled your shoe with treats, including a chocolate letter, a orange and dutch cookies.

Hi Kelly, a favorite tradition of mine is getting a new ornament for each of my children. When possilbe the ornament will have some meaning for an event from the past year. We enjoy the memories these bring as they hang on the tree. These will go along with them when they move out and have their own tree to decorate. Thanks for the chance at some great blog candy. jmniffer

Dawn Easton said...

Fantastic blog candy Kelly! We have so many favourite holidays traditions here. We like to make homemade sauerkraut perogies and cabbage rolls for Xmas dinner together. My daughter and I like to bake together. Then on Xmas Eve we watch A Christmas Story together. Thanks for the chance to win!

StamperJoyce said...

Great blog candy! I want it all!!
I celebrate the winter holidays alone since I'm disabled and housebound -- but I have a great time! I spend Thanksgiving Day making Christmas cards, and I spend Christmas making Valentines Day cards! Throw in some hot chocolate or eggnog, and it turns out to be really pleasant and relaxing.

Amy said...

I think my favortie holiday tradition growing up was how my dad always tortured us by making this HUGW breakfast before we could even look at the gifts.lol. It was really wonderful. It was the one time of year that all 6 of us got to sit down with dad and have a meal and talk and just be a family. We would read the Christmas story before the meal, and everyone would fight about who got to read it, but dad always knew whose turn it was this time. I am no subjecting my little family to the same torture! It's Great!

Julie Ramos said...

My fave Christmas tradition is taking my family to Christmas Tree Lane, which is a little neighborhood around the corner from ours in which every house is decorated for the holidays. If the family is Jewish then they decorate their house for Hanakkuh. It is really a sight to see and on the weekend evenings, a wonderful traffic jam of onlookers. Santa even makes an appearance on Saturday nights. Thanks so much for the offer of such great blog candy and for creating such a wonderful blog to share with all of us.

Jen said...

I love candy! Thanks for offering. :o) Favorite family tradition would be every year my sis and I get together and make nearly 100 ornaments to give as gifts to our family and closest friends at Christmas time. It's great because it's a project that takes us all year to do (coming up with the design, purchasing supplies, actually creating the ornaments) It really helps keep Christmas in our minds and hearts all year round.

cindy said...

Our 6 children are grown now but when they were little we would always go to a movie on Christmas Eve day. We seldom went to the movies so this was quite a treat. All 8 of us would pile in the rusty suburban and enjoy a movie (usually a Disney) and enjoy the lights on the way home! My children all have familes of their own but I'm sure wherever they are they will see a movie on Christmas Eve Day!

Deborah Saaranen said...

Thanks for the chance for goodies Kelly! I always love your designs!

Our tradition is Christmas Eve church services, and having Christmas Day at Grandma and Grandpa's house. My boys are 27 and 22 and they still want to be at my parents!

Maureen said...

I have a few things I love to do. When my son gets back from university, he and my dad will go out on my dad's horses to find a Christmas tree and then we'll put it up together. We also go to mass on Christmas eve and then have a family appie night with all my siblings and their families. I love filling my son's stocking before I go to bed (even though he's 20 now!). And now I'm off to finish my Christmas cards...another fun tradition!! Thanks for the chance to win. I love your style!!

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

I love your blog banner! I found your blog via Allison and I will be looking around more at past posts as I love what I have seen so far.

One of my favorite traditions that I started when the boys were little and they still like to do today is to drive around looking at all the lights and how everyone decorated the outside of their homes. They love to pick their favorites. Then we come home and drink hot chocolate, eat cookies and talk about what all we saw.

apigonfire said...

Other than the tradition of putting the Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving, my only other tradition is only watching "Love Actually" at Christmas. It is one of my favorite movies, and I like to only watch it in December because it takes place during Christmas. I also am in love with the scene where the guy declares love for the girl while he plays carolers on a stereo. LOVE it!

I love going to my grandmother's home on Christmas Eve and visiting with 50 or so of my closest family members. It is chaotic but wonderful.

SmilynStef said...

My husband and I usually go to see a Christmas movie on Christmas Eve or stay home and watch Home for the Holidays or the best Holiday skits from Saturday Night Live.

Fabby Candy...SO PRETTY! My Favorite tradition would have to be going to midnight church services with my family. We all get together for dinner first, and do gifts, then head off to church. We used to do it at Grandma's, now Mom is Grandma! Someday I will get to host!
Happy Holidays!

Perrie said...

Awesome candy....thanks for being generous!!! One of my most favorite traditions is that my bro-in-law has been dressing as "santa" for 21 years...we live in CO and he treks out to the garage to change into the "suit" and comes in the front door ringing his sleigh bells...now mind you...his & my sisters boys are 21 and 16 and my daughter is 26...so every year they get a SANTA gift all wrapped in the same paper of course...fun times and he is such a trooper...we now have another child in the mix...my 4 year old grandson...who "can't believe Santa is really here!!!!" Totally priceless moments.

Jess said...

Wow, what fun! My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve... we watch the movie White Christmas in front of a roaring fire, with hot chocolate in hand, and then we go to the Midnight Candlelight church service. Such a wonderful night.
