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 love hair accessories of all sorts, I have quite an extensive collection! Today I am wearing a jaw clip that looks like a peacock.

As for tree ornaments, the more eclectic , the better! Ours are all different, collected over many years. Lots of handmade ornaments of all kinds from when my brother and I were kids. Decorating the tree always brings back lots of fun memories!

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 at any time of the year, I think it is such a classic and timeless color combination for so many things. Blue and white, especially with silver, are the quintessential winter color scheme for me, making me think of a clear blue day after a snowfall.

December 8: What are you shopping for the most...and who are you buying for? Well, apart from shopping for too much makeup/beauty stuff for myself 😅 I pretty much mostly shop for my immediate family. I have all my Christmas shopping for them done (though I might I end up adding a little sketch to each of their gifts - we'll see if I manage to get them done in time). Now I have to figure out my gift wrapping scheme...

Things to keep warm in the cold.  Planning on a ski trip over the holidays so new gloves, hats, sweater are in order.  I shop mostly for family.

 

And, of course, my corgis!

The biggest item that was hard to get (and had me visiting the stores countless times looking for) was Pokemon Squishmellows for my nieces and nephews. I did end up getting them each thier own. It was a huge victory 😉

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

@CynthieLu My first ever Squishmallow was a Pokémon...same with the new one I just got lol.

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

Oooh what pokemon was is it? The first one and this new one? @Samtian I'm curious now. 😀

I got my nephew's Pikachu and Charmander. I got my kiddo a big squishy Snorlax. I got him a snorlax pj set with matching slippers last year, so it just seemed fitting 😉
