a few last minute gift ideas

First things first: Anyone else out there have any family traditions they’ve continued since childhood? My mom sent me this first thing this morning. She would say this to us every Christmas, when we were so excited. It makes my year every. single. time.

Anyone else out there feel like this? :: raises hand::

We know the holidays are rounding the corner and closing in fast. Yesterday, Jamin and I were doing a little scrambling ourselves. Next year, Santa will have a deadline for all this last minute star wars nerf gun toy request stuff. I mean, what’s up with that?

So in the spirit of lighting a flame under our bootays, thought it’d be fun to highlight a few of our fave crafty ‘lil gifts we’ve stumbled across. Whether your neighbors gave you an unexpected gift and now you need to save face, something last minute you feel like whipping up, you’ll have a few moments to do something fun with family over the holidays, or you could care less, and are completely over it ;}…

I felt like these are great little projects for now… or later. So whether you have a lot of time…or just a little…here’s some eye candy inspiration for you today!

    My husbands family all says “Christmas Eve gift!”
    I still don’t know the story behind it but it’s endearing.

    I love your inspiration posts! I’m addicted to pinterest like everyone else, but sometimes I don’t feel like “weeding” so it’s nice when you do it for me! ;)

  4. I’ve been waiting for some inspiration how to use a monogram letter I’ve had for-eva to be used to create something for a friend – now I have it ! Off to find a frame and some spray paint pronto! (I’ll probably back it with some pretty paper though…)

    Merry Christmas!

    Ashley,
    Are you on Pinterest and if so, how do I find you? I’m so lost on there. Gah!
