gift guide ($25 or less)

Here is a little gift guide for fun…I bought some of these very goods for people on my shopping list :) All photos come from the websites I am linking.

Sarah (the small object) has teamed with Chronicle Books to put out some pretty fantastic sets. This thumbprint notecard set is pretty perfect. I also really love love love her Label + Sticker book too, and a nice price! I know the thumbprint set shows as on backorder, but if you google you can find it for sale on other websites too. Don’t forget to check Sarah’s webshop for her awesome creations as well.

What about Bake It Pretty for a baking-loving friend. I just love the cupcake decorating kit! There is so much other good stuff on the website too, so even if you have a smaller budget you could put together your own box of stuff like a cookie kit–with cookie cutters (she got great ones), sprinkles, etc.

How about some beautiful paper goods from Rifle Paper Co. They are so beautiful that it is hard to choose!

Something from Kitschy Digitals would also be quite nice! The wonderful thing about Danielle’s goodies are they could really cover several people on your shopping list. The digital kits would be great for any scrapbooker, crafter, or you could buy the kits for yourself and then use them to make presents for that camera lover, fruit fan, etc. So good!

And without photos, but just as good as everything above—
1,000 Places To See Before You Die-this book sounds great to me!
zines-depending on what zine you buy, these could make excellent presents for most people on your list.
Ramen Noodle Chocolate Bars-how awesome is that? They also make Tortilla Lime + Salt chocolate, and french toast chocolate as well, yum.

I know this list isn’t very big, but I thought it would still be fun to share!, I am going to try and make another gift guide listing things you can make. I’d love to hear some things you’ve purchased for gifts and are ecited about!

something un-Christmas like ;)

Thanks for all the lovely comments and wishes on my last post. We had a lovely evening in of dinner by candle (and tree) light, coffee and movie (by tree light too!)

Here is some random fabric stuff to show you. These are the swatches I got of the cupcake fabrics…

I also added a bunch of stuff to my Etsy shop–things that are made and can just be shipped out easily. I’m going to try and make a post tomorrow with some of my picks for gift ideas, including some things I bought myself for my gift list.
