Last-Minute Christmas Goodies
Hi guys! Everything is in full Christmas crazy mode around Cabbage Ranch, and I'm sure your life is the same. I did want to share some fabulous little (free or cheap) Christmas things that have been lifesavers for me this year.
Living Locurto is one of my new favorite sites, especially during the holidays! Amy has posted fabulous- and free!- downloads for gift tags, wish lists, last-minute letters to Santa, and even thank you cards. So simple, and very pretty!
Givers Log is always chock full of great DIY ideas. AmberLee has tons of ideas useful for mailing cute presents on the cheap, because they weigh thirteen ounces or less (which would also be great gifts or stocking stuffers). Add to that her super cute ideas for ornaments wearing upcycled tights, and I'm practically giddy. And that's not something people see every day.
Paint chip ornaments. Free and easy, just like a hippie at Woodstock. Thanks to Say Yes to Hoboken for this great idea, which is a perfect project to do with kids.
Table settings, anyone? Young House Love is always an endless source of inspiration, and the holidays are no exception. Oh- and if you never thought you'd get inspired by a tube of cheap-o plastic animal figurines, think again, because Sherry made them into super chic ornaments. And that, my friends, is a true story.
Have a great day, eat some cookies, and godspeed.
