Christmas Candy Cane Nails

Isn't this festive!?!? I've always done my own gel nails or acrylics, but I've never really attempted to do my own nail art. Here's my first attempt...

Personalized Hand Soap & Hand Sanitizer

Pair these personalized soap dispensers with a cute hand towel and you've got yourself a super cute gift! And personalized hand sanitizer bottles would make a super cute teacher's gift!!

**These are available for purchase for $4.00 a piece. Just let me know soap or sanitizer & how you'd like them personalized!

Christmas Coasters

I came across a box of 4x4 tumbled tiles that I had in my materials "stash" and I decided to see what I could do with them. I decided to back them in cork, stamp them with permanent inks and turn them into drink coasters!
**These are available for purchase for $12.00 (for a set of 4)

I am working on my Christmas Cards for this year and every year we include a photo or two of our fur-baby, Chewie. Here are few contenders for this year's card...

'Tis the Season Cards

I've been playing around with my stamps from Papertrey Ink - I just love the font on the 'Tis the Season stamp. Using the same stamps, you can get two totally different looks just by switching up the papers & embellishments...

Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar

Who doesn't love Chocolate Chip Cookies!?!? I think these would make super cute gifts - you could even add a wooden spoon or wire whisk to complete the gift. Or pair one of these with a gift certificate to a local coffee house - now that's a nice gift!

**I have several of these available for purchase.
They are $8.00 a piece or 2 for $15.00.

Gift Card Slider

My cousin Sydney turned 13! She's officially a teenager - WOW! I got her a gift card & some lip gloss and decided to use the "Slider" format to decorate the gift card up a bit.

Basket full of Sliders

Are you hosting a holiday get-together this year? These would make great little take-home gifts for your guests. I filled a basket with Candy Bar Sliders & Hot Cocoa Sliders (see the two posts below for details on each). You just put this cute basket by your door and as guests leave they can take a pretty little treat home with them!

Candy Bar Sliders

I'm getting ready for a craft show I'm doing with my Scoompa (grandpa to the rest of the world), and I want to make sure I have a good mix of some lower-priced items. I think these Candy bar sliders would make great stocking-stuffers or Secret Santa Gifts and at only $2.00 each, they are affordable for even the strictest budgets!

Cocoa Sliders

Here are more stocking-stuffer & Secret Santa gift ideas - Hot Cocoa Sliders. I made a bunch of these to sell at the craft show (they are selling for $2.00 a piece). One of these sliders paired with a cute mug would make great "Thinking-of-You" gift for someone...Or pair one of these sliders with a gift card to a local coffee shop and you've got yourself a super cute gift!
