Cookies in a Box Thanksgiving Gift

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

December is always so insanely busy!
With shopping, parties, and everything else we’re trying to get ahead and are giving our neighbors’ gifts the week of Thanksgiving in lieu of Christmas this year.

Cookies wrapped in parchment, boxed and tied in string, accompanied with a gratitude note will do the job nicely.

We think this would work great for c0-workers and friends too.
A nice little gesture of thanks and getting ahead on Christmas….holler!

PS. Boxes are from HERE!

Christmas Gift Wrapping Station

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Our Christmas shopping is far from finished. However, we’ve thought of everything we need for wrapping everything!

Wrapping is such a highlight of this festive season. It’s so much fun to sit down, put on a christmas movie and really enjoy the process.

Having everything ready and in one place is the recipe for a good ol’ wrapping sesh!

We tend not to buy all our supplies in one place, but generally have our eyes peeled on our errands. Target, Micheals, Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx and Ikea are some of our spots.boxwood clippings | gift wrapping stationBlack and gold is our favorite again this year. What do you guys have planned?

The Perfect Gift: Affordable Custom House Illustrations!

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Several years ago, I decided to illustrate my family members houses for their Christmas presents. They were such a hit; from those who had built their dream home, to those in their first apartment, they loved it, because it was THEIR home. Personalized gifts really are the best!

Since then, I’ve been loving taking orders and continuing this little side hobby, and now lovely readers I’d love to offer it up to you, just in time for Christmas!!!

The illustrations are 4×6 and are framed. Prices start at $60 (most houses fit this rate).

When we need to wrap a present fast, you can’t beat a simple package tied up with string!

We picked up the string at the Dollar Tree (hardware aisle and in store only).

Paired with butcher paper or craft paper HERE, and you have a pretty present ready in a flash.

Just a buck for a great wrapping staple…yes please!
