I LOVE this original painting by "Follow the Moon Art". If you're interested in purchasing it ~ just hop over here.

Here is my List of the "12 Days of Chirstmas" things that I have left to do ~ but I only have 6 days now. However, I do have 2 slaves ~ I mean Elves ~ I mean "energetic" teenagers.

12 Christmas Cards yet to send

11 Gifts 2 Wrap

10 Panic Attacks

9 Gifts Still 2 Buy

8 Rum Cakes 2 Make

7 Rooms 2 Clean

6 Dozen Cookies

5 Christmas Parties

4 Hostess Gift Baskets

3 Sister Gifts

2 Teenagers 2 Buy 4

1 Christmas Reception @ Church

I was so flattered that they asked me to do all of the Christmas Decorations for a eceiption at Church. It's probably because no one else wanted to do it. That's okay ~ I've got it "under control" except that I just remembered I also said I would bring 6 dozen cookies. The decorations will either look like something from Fred Sanford's front yard or Martha Stewart's Dining Room........ I'll get Baby Bunny to take lots of pictures with her new camera. I think all three of my Sisters and my Mother are all coming to help me...... Right Sisters??

Speaking of my three Sisters ~ can't share it here yet, but I'm making them all something priceless, precious and perfect for Christmas. It is only going to take about 20 minutes for each gift ~ but I'm running out of time.

I'm also making several adorable Hostess Gift Baskets for several of the parties that we've been invited to. They are all Reindeer themed baskets and I've found so many adorable items to include. Rudolph collector ornament, Reindeer food for Christmas Eve, Reindeer Hand Towel, Moose Munch, Reindeer Cookies, Rudolph Hot Cocoa...........

MUST ~ GET ~ Christmas Cards ~ Mailed ~ Today!!!

Gift Ideas ~ Part 3 ~ Handbags!!!

I would absolutely LOVE to receive this Rosette Clutch (pictured above) as a gift. However, they are completely sold out online. This specific Clutch retails for approx. $35.00 ~ hence the unavailability of same. You just might get lucky and find one at your local Saks Fifth Avenue Store. It's designed and made by Stephanie Johnson and is the Katie Clutch. Don't you love it?

Here's another great idea for a Gift Card Holder or you could use it for a cute Treat Box. To purchase this Purse Template ~ just hop over here.

Another Pretty Purse and it's available in several different colors ~ blue, red, black, etc. It's on sale for just $67.50. Just hop right over here to Zappos ~ which offers free shipping w/free shipping for returns too.

LOVE this Stunning Sondra Roberts Evening Bag available at Nordstrom. Just hop right over here.

AND I simply MUST have this Post-It Note Holder that is shaped like a handbag!! Just hop right over here or visit your local office supply store.

I've been unable to locate the 365 Days of Handbags Calendar for 2011 (Wall Calendar). Unfortunately ~ I think they have discontinued it. I've found the 365 Days of Shoes ~ but I'd rather have the Handbag Calendar. Please email me if you know where I can purchase one ..........

Gift Ideas ~ Part 2

Here are a few additional Ideas for Gifts. This is the cutest little Bunny "Ring Holder" (pictured above) and it's available over on Anthropologie's website for only $10.00. (I didn't know they sold anything for under $50.00 over there at Anthropologie). It would also make the perfect Mother's Day or Easter Gift. Just hop right over here to order one for yourself or SomeBunny special !!

I needed one of these "Purse Holders" the other day when I was dining at a local Restaurant. I really got tired of holding my Purse in my lap for the entire meal. This Purse Holder hangs from the Table and keeps your purse close by and off of the filthy floor. It's available at your local Pier One Imports for only $9.00. You can hop right over here for more details.

This Painting really makes me LOL ~ isn't it hilarious!?!! It's entitled "Give me your Carrots" and features a determined Bunny "holding up" Snowmen for their Carrots using a Hair Dryer. It's made by Sylvia at Follow the Moon Art.

Wouldn't a beautiful piece of humorous or whimsical art make the perfect gift?

AND ~ this is such a Gorgeous Painting/Collage featuring a row of houses. I have one very similar to this hanging in my Bedroom and enjoy it every single day. A "Work of Art" is a Fabulous Gift for Christmas or any time of the Year. Treat yourself to something lovely!! Just hop right over here to purchase this Stunning Painting.
I'm crazy busy as always and just celebrated my Birthday this past weekend. I received so many pretty presents and crafty cards. It couldn't have been more perfect. Thanks to EveryBunny who sent Birthday wishes ~ I'm truly blessed beyond measure.
