The Busiest Week of the Year?

What is your busiest week of the year?  Do you find the Christmas holiday stressful? You are not alone. So many things to check, did I remember everyone I wanted to? Do I have all the food for Christmas Dinner?  Wrapping last minute Christmas Gifts should not be an extra stressor, so I wanted to share with you a simple little wrapping that will help with that chore: Some of the products are no longer available, but you will get the idea.

Small Holiday gift bag

Every year I needHandmade gift bags to give a gift card or two. To me gift cards don’t give that personal feeling of giving a special gift. So my way of sharing that special feeling is to create a special gift bag. This small bag is perfect for a gift card.
