Christmas Chain

Christmas traditions.  Do you have any?  We have a few that reflect our family's heritage:  hiding a pickle decoration in the Christmas tree (German), celebrating Boxing Day with Christmas Crackers (no, not the kind you eat, the English kind you pop), celebrating Little Christmas Eve with a bowl of Risengrynsgrot (Norwegian), and more.  One of the fun things we have done for years is to use a chain made out of construction paper to countdown the days until Christmas.  On the inside of each chain is something fun to do that day:  go look at Christmas lights, make a gingerbread house, sleep under the Christmas tree, watch a Christmas movie, etc.  It's a definite favorite around here.  This year's chain had to be hung up high over the world map because of a certain 3 year old who loves to destroy everything she touches.  Ahem.

Handmade Gifts

'Tis the season!  The holidays are nearly upon us, have you started shopping yet?  I'm really behind this year.  Usually I have several gifts hiding in my closet by now...not this year!  Yikes!
There is still time to order some rice bags for those hard to buy for people or those people who already have everything.  Pretty sure I'll be giving a few of these as gifts this year.


Plenty of rice bags like this available at my shop.

Hair Goodies

Hair flexis.  Have you heard of them?  I have loved using them for the last two years, so much so that I decided to sign up to sell them (and get them at a discount...yay!).  Check out these beauties over at my website:


They really are great.  They help control my crazy mop on top.  No more headaches from too tight ponytail holders!  And they are beautiful.
