Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu Ooh I didn't know there was a Charmander ( I haven't paid attention to them). But I was walking around Wal-Mart and saw Pikachu and Piplup so I grabbed that Piplup! My new one is Clefairy. Clefairy is one of my favorites so I've been excited for it to finally be released. Snorlax sounds fun!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

There was a Togepi too 😍 @Samtian. Sooo cute.

Those are both good ones! Clefairy is classic, I bet it's adordable. 

I'd really love to see a full Charizard. 🐉 Imagine in its shiny form as a Squishmellow. That would be rad!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu That would be amazing! Pikachu and Togepi are two of my least favorite pokemon lol. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Who would you want them to make a Squishmellow of thou? Ooooh imagine a giant Lapras? I could hug that one 🩵😉 lol. @Samtian 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu Oh how could I forget my other fave Slowpoke!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu Oh that would be cool! From the OG's I'd really love Wartortle (my favorite) Jynx, and Mr. Mime lol. Gloom too. Vaporeon. I think Grimer would be super cute.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Ooh yes to all those @Samtian they'd be freaking adorable! A squishy Wartortle I can totally picture. 😉

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu You must be the cool aunt in the family!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

I think so lol 😉 but I'm biased @JoSometimes. Lol.

So these toys, they are surprisingly soo big! I think they are as big as the kids. I can't believe how squishy and soft the Pokemon are. I can just picture all the cuddles the kids and these critters are going too have. 💝

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu wow, you are one awesome aunt, lucky kids 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

My nephew's are 3 and 6 I got them Charmander and Picachu, omg these stuffies are so soft and squishy! I hope they love them @CorgiMommy 💞

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Dec8- I joined a Secret Santa at work and I got lucky with the draw because I really like the person. My husband and I don’t exchange gifts. My son receives a check because he always gets himself the latest and greatest tech items. I just placed a large same day delivery order to take advantage of the holiday discount.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 7: Shades of blue and white: how do these colors inspire you for Hanukkah, or in general this time of year?  

 

I’m not Jewish but the colours still feel festive to me. They give me winter wonderland vibes.

 

December 8: What are you shopping for the most...and who are you buying for?

 

I have all my Christmas shopping done except my wife and god-kids. She is incredibly difficult to shop for!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 7: Shades of blue and white: how do these colors inspire you for Hanukkah, or in general this time of year?  

 

As someone who celebrates multiple holidays around this time of year (Hanukkah included) I love this question! 🤗💙 The color scheme of my decorating around this time of year is Navy Blue, White, Silver and Gold. I have some fake flower arrangements I made ages ago with Royal Blue poinsettia as the focal point and have a ton of small accents around the house, like gold globe lights.

 

I think this color scheme is honestly so beautiful for both Christmas and Hanukkah, growing up my mom would oftentimes decorate the tree with this color scheme as well (Royal Blue is her favorite color of all time). I truly think the dark blues paired with white/silver/gold encompass the winter wonderland feel of the holiday season for me. 🌟❄️

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline Sounds really beautiful!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Thank you 🤗 @Samtian 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline  I love this color scheme, your decorations sound beautiful!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@caitbird Thank you so much! 🙂

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 6: Ornaments aren't just for the tree!  What hair ornaments are you wearing, or would you like to wear?  And of course what type do you like on the tree?

 

I don't fuss with my hair too often so no ornaments but I do love me a good headband, something bold/colorful. We're not really decorating inside this year but I like the traditional glass ornaments even though I can't have them because of pets. Maybe one day I'll be able to, if I can get the dogs and cat trained properly. It's a long-shot LOL

 

December 7: Shades of blue and white: how do these colors inspire you for Hanukkah, or in general this time of year?  

 

I am in love with a deep navy for winter on my nails, but white and blue are such pretty colors for ornaments on the tree, too!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 7: Shades of blue and white: how do these colors inspire you for Hanukkah, or in general this time of year?  I love blue and white (or silver) together any time of the year! 💙🤍💙🤍  It reminds me of delft and porcelain as well as snow sparkling in the sun on a sunny winter day. ❄☃️

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

This is beautifully described @Titian06, that's a lovely way to say it. I think you got this right on 🤍🩵
