Today I’ve got an easy and cheap Holiday gift idea!

I’m really so busy that I shouldn’t even be writing this post. But I can’t help myself. I’m addicted:-)

I’m glad that my design business is very busy, but sad that I don’t have time get my Christmas cards out, buy gifts or finish the laundry! I’m doing good to get my kids breakfast in the morning.

Instead of baking cookies for my daughter’s teachers like I’d planned, I bought a cookie magazine! ha. They’ll have to make their own.

It wasn’t perfect and you know what? They loved it! I tend to over do things way too much. Sometimes you don’t have to go all out and easy is well… easiest!!

Speaking of perfect, that I definitely am not!

I thought you might like to see what most of my house looks like when you pull back from the nice close-up shots. This is a symbol of my chaotic life right now. To me, this actually looks pretty clean. Oh, probably because I had to move some junk to the floor!

  4. I wish I had come up with your awesome gift idea before I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. making teacher gifts! (And then…school was cancelled due to an ice storm. Can you even believe that?!) Really cute idea.

    BTW, your “messy” doesn’t even compare to mine right now. The four kiddos were left with dad all day…my house is beyond messy and has now fully entered disaster zone area. Yowza!
