It's a Pink Home for the Holidays on Day 7 with Cristal Hobbs, aka Pinky!
Pinky is one incredible woman! Our acquaintance started as Fiskateers. She is a dynmo for sure. Then she was on one design team then another and then .... She amazes me with heart and talent. I was privileged to meet her this past CHA. She was making a splash with Helmar. For all her energy she is a loving and compassionate person. I'm proud to know her.
Welcome Cristal Hobbs
Hey it's me Pinky!
“Home for the Holidays" that especially rings true in my household. 4 years ago we moved away from everyone in our family, all the way across the USA and now we live in TN. Throughout the moves and being away from family I always felt is was so important to keep traditions going, making new ones just for our little family.
One of my favorite traditions that I have done with my 3 boys...
BAKING, every year we bake 4-6 kinds of cookies and make plates for all the neighbors, even ones we do not know.
Sometimes I add my homemade Fudge, or Rice Crispy Treats, and we always make Sugar Cookies, Snickerdoodles, and Brownies.
Then I gather up all the boys (dad included) and we walk from house to house delivering the plates.
This year I decided to make cookie jars instead. Hopefully they will handle a little easier.
I wanted to teach my boys that for me holidays always have been and always will be about GIVING. Giving not only of your heart but also of your hands. I wanted them to know it does not have to be expensive or of monetary value.
Heartfelt and with love means just as much if not more.
This is the Hobbs Family tradition, just one of them anyways ♥
You can find many more projects and ideas on my blog, I am always creating, and more importantly...ALWAYS sharing!

I love Pinky's cookie jars and her family tradition! My husband makes Sugar Cookies every Christmas. To me they are award winning! It's the season for giving, bringing warmth of heart to others, and putting a smile on someones face. What brings a smile to your face this holiday season?
