Long Time, No Post!

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything...  Sorry about that!  Sometimes, the time just disappears, and you don't know where it went!

The holidays are coming up, and I'm getting excited:)  Christmas is my favorite holiday, despite my distaste for cold weather.  This year, my husband and I have decided to make at least one gift for each person in the family!  This is the first year I'm finding myself being "crafty," so I'm pushing myself to come up with something unique and different for each person.  Thankfully, there are lots of ideas out there to help with that!

I've mentioned Pinterest before, and I'm plugging it again.  I love that I can keep all these lovely ideas together in one place.  So, if you're looking for some holiday ideas, from party food to gift wrapping, to gift ideas - be sure to look through Pinterest!  If you aren't already a pinner but would like to be, I'd be happy to send you an invite:)

For this year's Deck the Balls Party at my in-laws:)

Cute gift idea for anyone on your list!

Button ornament

Made one of these as a gift, and it was a hit!

Great for a kid at heart - and you can make it with love:)

Paint chip gift tags - great idea!!

Make your own newspaper gift bags!

And, there is SO MUCH MORE!  So, I challenge you to make something this year - be it gift tags, home decor, or even a gift for someone special on your list!  There is just something extra special about a handmade holiday:)

  5. uniquecozytreasures - I have made gifts many years for my family. It's a great idea.

  6. there are so many things I'm planning on making, I wish I could concentrate on one thing at a time)

  7. Pinterest is so ADDICTING! I can spend hours on there though, so I literally have to watch the clock and cut myself off.
