Holiday Gift Guide...Starts Tomorrow!

UPDATE! Please check revised themes! Had a request (that totally made sense!!) to move the teacher's gifts up so it hits before Christmas break!

Hey y'all!! Just a quick post to remind you of the first installment of the Holiday Gift Guide (I kept the boring title...more self explanatory that way!)!!

I made a handy little button for anyone that wants to include it in their post:


A quick rundown of the themes (Oops on my part...there are only 7...yes, SEVEN Monday's between now and Christmas!! Not 8, as I originally thought!):

Week 1 (November 8th): Children's Books--Hidden Gems (off the beaten path fabulous children's books...a narrow topic, I know, but it's the one that started this and I KNOW I'm not the only one who loves finding new books for a kiddo!)

Week 2 (November 15th): Gifts for the "Mature Man" in your life! (Husbands, Dads, Grandpas...)

Week 3 (November 22nd): Handmade/Homemade/Esty Gifts! (Tutorials welcome! It's always nice to find a way to make a thoughtful, frugal gift! Does NOT have to be a tutorial, tho!) Giveaway involved!

Week 4 (November 29th): Favorite Children's Toys (Bonus if they're "battery-free"!!)

Week 5 (December 6th): Idea's for Teacher Gifts

Week 6 (December 13th): Gifts for Grandmas

Week 7 (December 20th): Unique Gifts

And, with that, I'm off to finish my post for tomorrow! I've got some good ones to share! Hope to "see" you all then!

*Edited to add* Oh, and don't forget to link your post up tomorrow!!

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
