The Holidays with Famous Design Bloggers

You know them, you read their blogs every day, you use on your projects their design resources and tutorials. We wanted to bring them closer to you so we asked design blogging superstars how will they spend this year’s Holidays.

Here’s what they answered :

How will you spend your Holidays ?

Traditional Christmas dinner with my close family, in Bangor, Northern Ireland. Then it’s getting ready to move home/office to Edinburgh, Scotland (leaving in January).

Greetings to readers :

I hope that you, Alex, and all the CrazyLeaf readers have a fantastic holiday season, and an even better 2010.

This particular holiday will be uneventful for me. I’ll be using it to catch up with tasks that I’ve neglected, as well as getting prepared for the next year. On Christmas, I’ll be video-conferencing my mom, dad, and brother in the morning, and then I’ll be having a nice and peaceful dinner with friends.

Greetings to readers :

I’d like to wish all Six Revisions readers a happy holiday and a happy New Year!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

I will be spending Christmas at my home. My parents, my wife’s parents and her brothers are coming to our house. Last year we ate and played games most of the day, so I’m thinking this year will be more of the same. I have no plans for new years aside from watching some football (American football that is).

Greetings to readers :

I hope everyone has a great time with friends and family during the holidays. Try to take plenty of time away from work and enjoy all of the things that you have been blessed with in your life.

This Christmas we’re hosting a large family gathering at our house. The conservatory is being converted into a dining room with a 3 metre long table, nicely decorated with all kinds of Christmassy objects and pretty fairy lights surrounding the room. We have 11 people coming over including Laura’s parents, my parents, Laura’s brother, my two sisters and both our Grandparents. Following this is an evening of games for the youngsters and falling to sleep on the sofa for the oldies.

New Year wise, we don’t have any plans as yet. It’s tradition for my Auntie to have a gathering, so if things are going ahead this year, that’s likely to be our destination for New Year partying!

Greetings to readers :

Best Christmas wishes to all CrazyLeaf readers, and a great new year filled with exciting design projects!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

I was lucky enough to spend the first half of December soaking up the sun in Jamaica with my beautiful girlfriend. For the second half, I will be visiting family for in Tampa, Florida and relaxing with close friends. Hopefully not too much of my time will be spent on work or thinking about websites.

Greetings to readers :

I hope everyone has a great, safe, and fun filled Holiday season spent with those you love most!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

I’m trying to launch a web-design-related project that I had in mind for a while. Some days of the holidays will include coding for sure. For the rest, it seems to be a snowboarding vacation very close to where I live or a dream-plan which is going kiteboarding in a warmer country (the plain tickets are currently too high and trying to catch an opportunity). All with my wife and few friends (except coding J).

Greetings to readers :

Wishing all CrazyLeaf Design Blog readers happiness (and, hopefully, the rest follows).

How will you spend your Holidays ?

I will spend it with my family. Holidays are usually far less busy than usual so it’s a perfect opportunity to be with people you love. We’ll just spend a lot of time at home with friends coming over.

Greetings to readers :

May all your wishes come true not by waiting for something nice to happen but by going out there and make it happen!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

Christmas has become more meaningful now as it is also my wedding anniversary. I will probably reserve a nice place for a Christmas dinner by the riverside.

Another activity that I am looking forward to, is to photo shoot the fireworks on New Year’s eve. Other than these, see you guys on Facebook!

Greetings to readers :

Merry Christmas to Alex and everyone! Greetz from 10Steps.SG!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

Don’t really have a plan right now, but I definitely will be spending some time on PSD Vault. Otherwise just have a good rest and get ready for a busy 2010.

Greetings to readers :

Hello everyone, I’m James and I run PSD Vault, which is a personal blog for everything Photoshop – tutorial, resources, freebies and inspirations!

I will be back in my home town spending quality time with friends and family. I’m really looking forward to the nice break 🙂 I hope to come back reenergized with a positive outlook and plenty of post ideas.

How will you spend your Holidays ?

Rather depressingly I have a very important dissertation due after the Christmas holidays, and so need to be working on that over the entire break. However, I’ll also be spending time with my family and girlfriend, and with any luck drinking far too much. The good news is that despite being preoccupied with this dissertation I’m feeling incredibly inspired lately, and so can’t wait to pour my efforts into PSDFAN in the new year!

Greetings to readers :

I hope that all CrazyLeaf readers have a fantastic holiday, and remember to take time to relax with your loved ones.

How will you spend your Holidays ?

I will be traveling & participating in four different X-Mas’s. My longtime GF and myself have split families so I will be traveling all over the state. After X-Mas I will be enjoying a long break all the way through new years. Which will probably consist of eating, drinking & working on personal projects.

Greetings to readers :

Best wishes to you and your family on what ever holiday you participate in. Happy Chrismahanakwanzika to you!

How will you spend your Holidays ?

This Christmas holidays I will spend with my family: with wife, daughter and parents. I always believed that the Christmas holidays are for families to spend a lot of time together and that’s what we will do. We will spend Christmas holidays in Latvian and will enjoy all winter amenities and will wait for Santa.

Greetings to readers :

May your world be filled with warmth and good cheer this Holy season, and throughout the year! Wish your Christmas be filled with peace and love. Merry Christmas to all CrazyLeaf Design Blog readers, to designers, bloggers, webmasters and to yours families.

At the end we would like to thank all our readers, advertisers and supporters and wish them a world of health, happiness and Happy Holidays !
