Gift Ideas ~ Part One

Here are just a few gifts ideas. I'll post more later......

This "White Turquoise" Necklace ($30.00) is on Etsy at Polished Two.

I thought that this "Heroes" Soldered Pin ($10.00) was so lovely. It's also on Etsy at Brynwoodneedleworks.

Pam at Sew Gracious has lots of great items that would make perfect gifts. I LOVE her Organizer Baskets ($18.00) and just wait until you see the custom design that I've ordered from her. It's going to be Purr-fect.... and will look so adorable in my Safari themed room. I'll post pics of them when they arrive. Organization never looked so good.

Julie at Fabulous Finds Boutique has several of these Frames that she made and they're all Gorgeous!!

If you know someone that has arthritis or doesn't have any strength in their hands ~ this is the perfect gift. It's the Black and Decker Lids Off Jar Opener ~ which is electrical. You can hop right here to Amazon ~ if you're interested.

This would be the perfect gift for my Mother ~ EXCEPT she already has it. **sigh** She LOVES it and uses it quite often. She gave us all a demonstration on Sunday and we were quite impressed with it. Here's the write-up from the Black and Decker website.

The days of struggling with tightly sealed jar lids are over. Opening jar lids has never been quicker or easier! Simply depress the handle and the Black & Decker Lids Off™ Jar Opener Deluxe opens virtually any size jar in one simple operation. Its compact design makes the Black & Decker Lids Off™ Jar Opener Deluxe easy to store; and its stylish black and stainless-steel exterior complements any kitchen d├ęcor.

Christmas Preparation Update ~
Our Christmas Tree is up and has lights ~ but not any ornaments. However, there are at least 16 Storage Boxes in our Living Room with Christmas Decorations spilling out of each and every one of them. I don't know what's wrong with me ~ I can't seem to finish one single task. Every room in our house needs cleaning (some worse than others) and I haven't even started the Christmas shopping.

I spent most of today looking for the perfect Christmas Cards to send and went to about every store in the area. I found some I liked ~ but I just looked at them again and now I'm not sure. Funny ~ I wanted them to be different and unique ~ however, maybe they're too different. I'll scan them tomorrow so you can see what I mean. (They're pink and green instead of red and green). I could have hand made some cards in the time that I've spent shopping for them.

It seems like I take one tiny baby step forward and three GIANT steps back. There were so many things I wanted to accomplish today ~ but it's now 12:00 and so everything will get transferred over to my "To Do" list for tomorrow.

I wasn't going to mention the "Cheetah" Woods situtation on my Blog. However, this morning on Regis and Kelly ~ they mentioned a "remix" about the "Cheetah's" voice mail message and how it was surprisingly well done. So, I was curious and think this might be the one they were referring to. So ~ here's Tiger Wood's Voice Mail Message with Music.........
