Handmade Holiday Review

by Chris on November 21, 2010

Courtney at A Thoughtful Place knows how to gift give. I am totally doing this! I love the possibilities of it, and she shows us different ways to use them! Way to go!

By now, you might know that I get weak in the knees when it comes to packaging. I am drooling over these little bags. How simple yet so charming! Beth at It is What it Is used these as a Christmas advent (of course!), but you can use them for whatever you like!

Orange it Lovely is a girl after my own heart. Pottery Barn and glitter. Oh, and saving money. Perfect combination! These would be great to attach to my presents to my teenage nieces. The wheels, people! They’re turnin! pottery barn peace ornament

Speaking of high-priced decor on the cheap, Carrie at Dittle Dattle replicated a Ballard Designs monogram wreath. I think this might be my neighbor gift this year. This way, I can drive by their houses and think how cool I am for making them such a beautiful gift. Or I can drive by their houses and curse them for not putting my wreath on their doors.

Uh oh. We’ve got a sewer, people. Stand by. Oh, wait. After reading her instructions, I just might be able to do this. Go see the tree these are on at Running with Scissors. Too. cute.

Oh. My. Word. Want. IT. How charming and simple and delicate and seasonal.  Go to the I Design Box for directions (and a gorgeous horse print on the wall!).

I’ll be back to announce the winners—no, I haven’t forgotten. I’ve got some projects I’m working on, and I’ve got 754 loads of laundry to complete.

I am dying laughing here – I must be overtired, I read that as "we've got a sewer…" as in pipes, underground, the yuck ones. Oh my goodness, I am getting ice cream and going to bed.

Barb November 22, 2010 at 3:53 am

Hey Mulberry Girl, I thought it was the same "sewer". I need to go to bed! How funny. I loved the monogramed wreath! Nice. I got really tired when you mentioned you were doing 754 loads of wash.

Why do you hate democrats so much? Let's a find a balance first, and then start blaming each other. And don't say war is the answer.
I mean, how hard can it be to just be spontaneous. It is. And sometimes you just can't post random shit like this.
I don't have a website yet, but I'm planning on starting a blog like yours, any tips?
I'm not sure I agree with you on some key points. Do you allow guest blog posts? I'd love to write on this topic.

My concerns are: What amount can an agency legally cost to allow an insurance plan holder out of his car insurance?
Simply how much does your agency charge when somebody chooses to stop and how much pressure can you use to maintain them?
What are some tips or something like that we can say if our consumer has many months left on his current car policy? Definitely, we are not going to hold back until his renewal comes due every time.
