Christmas Gift Ideas

So, I was one of the crazies who shopped on Black Friday.




Now, wait, before you pass any judgements about me....I was NOT out at 3am, I didn't go till around 8am.



It was MUCH more low key at this time of day. I didn't see any fighting in the stores over items. I DID have to wait in line, but I'm sure it was a lot shorter than earlier that morning.


I DID finish my Christmas shopping on Black Friday. That I am happy about. However, I'd like to pass along some great sites on etsy.com that are adorable. Now, let me just say this about etsy.com. It's a site all about sellers who either sell vintage items or who make items to sell. You can search for anything, and all of it is great. I love to support other crafters making a living selling their creations.


I did do a lot of online shopping this year. More than any year previous to this. It's just so easy to do, and quick, and I only shopped the sites that were offering free shipping. I didn't have to set foot in 20 different stores, it was all conveniently shipped to my warm home.


Anyway, here are some VERY cute items that you might like.

This is one of my favorites, and you can find it here. It's made by LillyEllenDesigns.

And since I have a daughter who is very into Paris and the Eiffel tower lately, here are some very cute items.


You can find this very chic coin purse here....along with some other very cute things.
It's made by MFIPC.

Then there is this little ditty. I want one myself. You can purchase it, and others like it, here.
Moira made it and I think I need to make her my new best friend.


Lastly with the whole Paris theme and all are these cute little resin Eiffel towers. They could be used for earrings or even a necklace. Did I mention Grace is also into designing her own jewelry lately? She is. You can buy these very cute and stylish towers here.





Then there is this very talented lady. I LOVE this print, and would like it hanging in my house, but all the other ones she makes are equally great. You can find this one and others here.

Then, because I am a little obsessed with journals and to-do lists, I found these. (seriously, when it's time to buy the kids school supplies, I buy myself some as well. There's no problem a good, cute notebook can't solve!) I AM IN LOVE. Now, I could make these myself, I have oilcloth in my possession, but it's a matter of finding the time. This lady makes many things out of oilcloth. Check these out here.

Now, wasn't that fun?

    would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

  37. I think everything published made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title?

    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that grabbed a person's attention?
    I mean "Christmas Gift Ideas" is a little vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything've got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
