Holiday Wish List

Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme
TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.

1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year? 
  • family or mother jewelry (pendant with my child's name, etc)
  • How To Make an American Quilt on dvd (I think I waited too long on this, and it's out-of-print - tragedy!)
  • new books by some of my favorite authors: Silas House, Barbara Kingsolver and Isabel Allende
  • music from artists I enjoy: Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, Dido, Jason Mraz
  • this is more of a dream request: a Cuttlebug or a Zutter Bind-it-all
2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
A soft-sculpture doll (think original Cabbage Patch) that my mom made for Christmas when I was five. She made it to look just like me.

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

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child? 
probably that doll, but if I have to pick something else, then one of the dolls my grandma made

5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year? 
She told Santa she wants toys, specifically a new doll because "I need more babies."

6. What is your favorite holiday food? 
lemon cheese cake (not a cheese cake - it's a layer cake with lemon curd icing)

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays? 
maybe a few scrapbooks

8. What is your favorite holiday movie? 
The Miracle on 34th Street (the original with Natalie Wood)

9. Favorite holiday song? 
God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman by Sarah McLachlan and the Barenaked Ladies

10. Favorite holiday pastime?
baking cookies
