Thanks for the fun giveaway! This time of year I love listening to Christmas music, sledding, making spiced cider or mulled wine, and spending time with family.



I love just being out and about with all the people bustling around preparing for the holidays. Happy birthday and thanks for having such a great store!


yeah, thanks for the fun giveaway! happy birthday! now that i have children i'm experiencing christmas time through their little eyes...watching rudolph and frosty and singing lots of jingle bells. :) i'm also sewing up some christmas decor and gifts. all so fun!


My favorite thing to do this time of year is to have a deluxe cup of coffee and some snacky finger food in the late afternoon with my husband , some cool jazz on the stereo ... and just forget all the madness of the commercial holiday going on in our city


I love to just kick back and relax and enjoy and slower pace of the holiday season. Although this hasn't been true so far this year as work has been crazy and I've been trying to sew like a crazy woman to try and finish up gifts!

Happy birthday and thanks so much for celebrating by hosting this awesome series of giveaways!!!!


Happy B-day!!! I love such giveaways related to important events in our lives - sharing such great moments is sooo precious!
I don't like Christmas preparations in general (like cleaning, cooking), but I love some particular preparations - these ones, which I can do with my family together: for example making Christmas tree decorations.

Oh yay! Happy Birhday. This time of year I love baking with my two little girls in the kitchen. They are 4 and 5 and have blast! I have to work quick or they eat all the dough before I get it in the oven :-)

My favorite thing to do during the holiday season, is rush to finish up all those projects that will become Christmas gifts for loved ones. Then on a busy day, stop and have a tea or coffee at a cafe and relax for just a short while. Happy birthday celebrating! and thanks for the opportunity!


oooo! this would be such a treat to win this for my december birthday!!!! This time of year, I love, love, love to make gifts for my daughter. Happy Birthday Sheree!


Happy Birthday!! Thanks for sharing your birthday with us.

My favorite thing to do around the holidays is to bake Christmas cookies and drive around admiring the decorations and beautiful lit up houses.



There's so much to like about the holidays: the music, sweets, decorations, etc. Happy Birthday!


Happy Birthday! I love this time of year because I get to spend more time with my family. Thanks Sharonj.


Haha, super clever to avoid the holiday shipping rush!

My favourite thing to do this time of year...Make gifts for others. Yeesh.

Thanks so much, and happy birthday, Sheree!


Happy Birthday Sheree!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
Thank you for celebrating your birthday by sharing such a generous giveaway with us!
At this time of year I celebrate my wedding anniversary with my DH (33 years this year!).
My favourite parts of Christmas preparations are decorating the tree and setting out my collection of Christmas angels.


Happy Birthday Bash! Hmm, this time of year is hectic for me (as it is for most), but I enjoy making Christmas gifts since that is both recreational and practical. It's fun to curl up with some sewing (or knitting) and watch the squirrels dig up my yard ;)


Well Happy Birthday to you!! This time of year, my favorite thing to do is decorate the tree. It's a tradition for hubby and I. We usually put on music, get a glass of wine and get out the ornaments that we've gathered traveling together. He even proposed by hiding my ring in an ornament box.

Happy Birthday Sheree! Are you really 39? Or 39 again???? lol. Very sweet to share so much with your followers.
I love softly falling snow on Christmas Eve; decorating cookies with the kids and grandkids; lovely music; church services worshipping the King and everything else that goes along with the Holidays!


HaPpY BiRtHdAy, Sheree!!! Hope you have a wonderful day!
During the Christmas seasin I love to bake cookies and to decorate the house. Here in Germany we don't decorate the tree before Christmas Eve.
Thanks for the give-away! Dagmar


hmmmm.....Favorite thing to do this time of year? Drink a glass of wine and talk with a good friend. Or cuddle up with the hub and watch a good Christmas movie. Or go toy shopping for my kiddos. All GREAT things that I enjoy! Thanks for the great giveaways! :)


Hello and thanks for the giveaway! I love the weather in Houston this time of year and seeing everyone running and walking, enjoying the Christmas lights and the cool weather.


Happy Birthday, Sheree! Hope you're celebrating and treating yourself with as least as much wonderfulness as you're giving away. Enjoy your special day!

One of my favourites things this time of year is baking special treats for family and friends.


Happy birthday, Sheree and thanks for the giveaway! I love all of the preparations for Christmas - decorating, listening to music, wrapping presents and baking.


Happy Birthday! I love listening to Christmas music...

About Me

  • Hello! Welcome and Thank You for stopping by my blog! Here, I share a bit about how I Live, what makes me Laugh, what I Love and things I Create! I am a chemist by training (I have a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry), but instead of mixing up chemicals in a lab, I spend my days mixing up fabrics to create lovely clothing and accessories! When my daughter was born, my desire to climb the corporate ladder was succumbed by my desire to mother, so I hung up my labcoat and resigned from my job. I miss my days in the lab, but I am thoroughly enjoying my new job as a pattern and clothing designer and maker of lovely things! I am launched a new line of contemporary sewing and quilting patterns and I run an online fabric shop as well as a small online boutique where I sell my handmade goods. Here in this space, I share bits of my days, things I love and of course talk way too much about fabric and design.

My Shops

  • Be sure to stop by my website to see all my handmade goods available for sale in the boutique, as well as a host of fabrics, patterns, yarn and more available in the creativity shop!
