School’s Almost OUT!

Time for the summer plans to begin. But before you do, don’t forget to show your appreciation to your child’s teachers, aides, tutors, coaches and other mentors in their lives.  They all could use a coffee shop gift card (coffee, tea, snack, dessert, etc.) I designed this Coffee Cup so all you have to do is pop in that gift card.  I will even personalize it with their name.  Check it out at my Etsy shop soon.  Thanks A Latte!

Reward that Grad!

It’s that time of year for celebration! Especially if you have or know of a successful student who will be graduating soon.  And we all know they will need lots and lots of gift cards to enjoy the summer, buy clothes for college, buy luggage for the big trip, or just to say congratulations!  I made this cute way to give that gift card (or cash).  Just flip the hat open, write your sincere message, pop in gift card and you’re set!  Look for it at my Etsy shop today. 

Easy Christmas Shopping!

Get your holiday list handy cuz I have just what you need to check it off. These four gift card holder cards will match everyone on your list. First for the coffee/tea drinkers I have my coffee shop gift card holders that mimic a coffee cup; second a handy tape measure one for that super handy guy/gal on your list; a sweet purse for that talented shopper (just need to think of her favorite store); and finally a family gift – movie passes. Check them all at my Everyday Holiday Shop.

 

Reading ‘Riting ‘Rithmatic

Of the three “R’s” we think of as back to school, I have to say writing is my favorite.  Lord knows it isn’t math. And by writing I mean making endless lists – – grocery, shopping, tasks, chores, etc.  So you can understand why I am excited to offer these super cute and very handy journals. The come in four yummy colors and are great for him or her.

Get a journal just for keeping your lists all in order, or maybe for keeping your secret passwords handy, or for jotting down all those great thoughts that come in the night. Food journal? Exercise log? Budget? well I think you get the idea.

I can personalize them with your fav phrase or you can choose one I have already designed.  Check them out at my Etsy shop today! Oh and did I mention they can fit nicely in someone’s holiday stocking?

 

 

Valentines Day is almost here

Hard to believe that it is just over a month away for HEART DAY.  I have already put up my valentines decor (love that red and black).  And best of all – my early bird approach is going to make you smile too.  In my Etsy shop I have three wonderful ways to show your love some love.

First a  manly tape measure card that holds a gift card from any hardware store – a sure way to his  heart.

Next I fashioned an awesome popcorn box perfect for popping a movie house gift card inside. Good for family, friends or that special move date.

Lastly a great idea for mom.  A cute coin purse for your shopping momma.  Just put in a gift card from her favorite store.

Now you can say “thank you” for making your Valentines Day shopping a breeze.

Hybrid Gift Shopping

So I have merged the convenience of online shopping with the thrill of being with shoppers in the stores.  Check out my Etsy shop for some great new gift card holders. Buy them from my shop and then head out to get those gift cards.

First I have updated last year’s popular coffee shop gift card holder, now expresso(ing) a latte holiday. It is a smart white cup with the familiar craft sleeve and a place to add your gift card.  And who doesn’t love a coffee shop gift card?

Next I have crafted a cute lil coin purse for her.  Just add a gift card from her favorite shopping spot and you’re good to go.  So convenient for co-workers, secret santa and even stocking stuffers. If you don’t know where she shops, just get a generic visa card.

Lastly, for that hard to shop for GUY on your list.  An awesome tape measure that can hold a gift card from any hardware store.  PERFECT for him. He can buy just what he wants.

Happy Holidays!

 

Camp Crafting

I’m just about ready to leave for our annual camping trip.  Each year I usually try to bring a fun craft project for the group to help us all relax a bit.  This year I am showing them how to make these hammered copper bracelet cuffs.  Each one is hand stamped with names or words of choice.  For my example, I decided to stamp the names of my four grandchildren. I love how these turned out – very boutique style.  I want to share this fun item with others so I am offering them on my Everyday Holiday Etsy shop.  Check them out here
