I'm really feeling like December is going to more enjoyable this year. It's easier to enjoy Christmas when your on top of your todo list and have things under control. I launched my 12 Days of Christmas Giving and I finished Christmas shopping for my 2 kids. Almost all my shopping is done for friends and family and stocking stuffers are done too. I think the only thing I have left to buy is a gift for my Mother in law. Actually my sweet Husband will be ordering that on line this evening. Some people love shopping in all the crowds but I love shopping early in as much peace as possible. I always shop with a list and a budget. It makes life so much simpler.
I like to make gifts for our neighbors and the people I clean for. I usually make Christmas candies or cookies for all of them. This year I'm making pumpkin and banana breads. I'm either going to use my Cricut to make boxes to put the mini loafs of bread in or I'll make tags to attach to the bread in clear cello wrap.
A couple years ago I made the tags I attached to these cups. I used the "good coffee, good friend" and the "your my cup of tea" stamps. You can include a gift card to the local coffee shop, tea bags or a special coffee blend. Their quick and easy gifts.
Day 2 gift:
Todays gift is both of these Hero Arts stamp sets. There are so many cute sentiments and the sparkles are just an added bonus.
