Wow, really sporadic blogging and then this cluster of things to talk about.
I am FINISHED with my Christmas Shopping. Yay!! I am not saying that to rub it in to anyone who has not finished, its just that I really DO NOT like holiday shopping. Before I had Hannah I was so good about planning ahead and picking up things throughout the year and saving them.
That all changed for whatever reason and now it seems I have become "one of those people" who runs around in a panic trying to find gifts. To top it off it also seems that I have become one of "those" parents who waits til the last minute to find "the" gift of the season and then goes into panic mode. I am only going to take part of the blame for that though. Part of it has to be shouldered by Hannah because she is 5 and indecisive and its not really my fault that she waited until 2 weeks before Christmas to decide she wants a Wii and to talk about it constantly.
Fortunately , Mama is good with ebay and despite popular opinion DOES sometimes have the patience of a saint ( I said SOMETIMES) and Mama scored a Wii game system for pretty close to retail. It will be here tomorrow. Phew.
Anyway, somehow I have totally gotten off topic here. I meant to talk about LolliShops and how great it has been for my "Shop Handmade" pledge. I am proud to say that this year I DID purchase many handmade things and I am excited to give them. I can't share those yet because some of the peeps read this blog and I don't want to give away the surprises.
Now that I am done with my shopping, I have had more time to peruse the wares on LolliShops that I am lusting after and I thought I would share a few of them. It hard to pick just a few because daily so many new additions are being added. Lollishops is just growing by leaps and bounds and despite a bit of a rocky start it seems to be purring along like a kitten now. I hope you will check it out!!
First: How cute is this reuseable market bag by my friend Jennifer of Rosey Little Things? Talk about handy and green. I woudl be super happy if this was under my tree.
I am also coveting this CUTE little green flower ring from
Naked Tile. I love green and this is so sweet. I'd wear it alot.
Ok, and want to talk about CUTENESS?? Check out this adorable deer from Fantastic Toys. I can't even believe a MAN can think up things so CUTE!! Be sure to check out the other sweet things in his shop too. Everything is fab! I think I could keep going but I need to get back on the sewing machine and finish up a colored pencil caddy for my SIL. I said I was done SHOPPING, not creating ;) Hope everyone else is faring well with their shopping as well. There is still time to grab some goodies from LolliShops if you hop to it!!
