At the first hint of chill in the air, my thoughts turn to Christmas. My mind and heart begin to fill with visions of sugar plums indeed. My weekly menu turns decidedly toward comfort food and I begin rummaging in my brain for homemade Christmas gift ideas for my loved ones. I begin hauling out first the autumn decorations and later the Christmas, decking my halls and every other available surface. I take delight in the season, the magic, wonder and glory of it all. This blog was born from that delight. Here you will find dinner ideas, crafts, decor, stories, memories, and music. Some ideas will be entirely mine, but I will also include anything cute I come across that I think you might like to see, credit given to the creator or source. Please leave me your ideas in the comments and any other feedback you'd like to give.

Teacher Gifts

I know that it is perhaps a bit early to start thinking about teacher gifts. But is it really? If you want to do something hand made it seems wise to start planning now. Plus, I wanted to share this before I forgot where I had seen it. I found these ideas on one of my favorite blogs, Be Different Act Normal. She found them somewhere else and links to the original post in hers. I'm not sure if those links work anymore, though. It's been a year and I know one of them didn't. I thought both ideas were very cute and very easy.

There is a link there for ordering vinyl letters but I'm going to add one of my own. I've ordered vinyl from Shelley several times and have always been very pleased. She even packages it up cute. So go check out Wonderfully Wordy and see what you can find.

And what Mom of young kids doesn't have an unending supply of crayons? You can get cheap frames at Goodwill and paint them, or just pick up some of the $2 frames at Walmart. I think these are adorable and I have every intention of making them for our teachers this year.
