Make Gift Giving Easy


I am embarrassed to say that too many years in a row I have been rushing to a holiday party or family function and grabbed the wrong gift.  Yes I realize they are labeled, but who has time for that!

So I said to myself, you color code your inbox and your homework, why not your gifts.

By wrapping your different gifts according to the receivers (his side, your side, work, friends) it make grabbing the right gifts easier.

Now all my slightly OCD friends are thinking i cant have all that going on under my tree.  Relax…I am not suggesting some green, some blue and some orange.  Select different holiday designs that coordinate or utilize similar colors.

Christmas Card Display


I love getting Christmas Cards from my friends and family, but I have struggled to find a good way to display them.  There are so many good ideas out there on how to do this, but what works for me is a quick ribbon over my cabinets and some mini clothes pins (painted red and green).


Secure the ribbon with a little painters tape and tie it in a bow and you have an instant Christmas Card display.  The decoration for your kitchen is just a bonus!

I want an Ugly Sweater

As a lover of Christmas and vintage things, the resurgence of the Ugly Christmas Sweater warms my heart, although I am sure they weren’t always called Ugly Christmas Sweaters and were at one time stylish (and not in an ironic sort of way).

An Ugly Christmas Sweater is on my wish list this year, but not a new one.  I want a true old school vintage sweater, and if it has a 3-D bell or pom-pom, even better!
