Christmas Gift Ideas Part II

Hello Cuties ♥

How are you all? I had been running around getting some presents this last couple of days and let me tell you, malls are getting crowder and streets are becoming a bit more dangerous to drive...oh well, it's that time of the year. Just be careful out there, specially all of you that have snow on the streets. How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping list? Not done yet? Well my Christmas gift ideas Part II is here ladies! Christmas is just a couple of days away, but you still have some time to make either one of these gift ideas. Gift a stunning front door flower basket, unique brownies mix jar, marbleized pencils or make that home decor lover happy with a rapture cushion or spiral rung. These stocking stuffers are super witty and to die for.
Links for each idea are provided below ☺

It's the most wonderful time...

Hello lovelies,

How are you all? Are you getting ready for Christmas? I am so into the Christmas spirit this year! Even though I was a bit busy with new projects for Etno, those Flying geese are coming up beautiful by the way I can't wait to show you the final result. I spent this weekend organizing and decorating for the holidays, enjoying Miami's cool weekend weather, perfect for a cup of hot coco. I had been sharing some amazing DIY gift ideas with you all that I really hope will help you this Christmas.
There are more things to come that I will be sharing this month, like recipes from my favorite chefs, hence the eggnog image....recipe very soon ☺


I wish there could be more hours in the day so I can complete some of the incredible projects that I had been seeing online! These last couple of days, I had been browsing the internet for Christmas ideas, and you will not believe the unique DIY decorations that I encountered!! They are just lovely, like this brilliant and easy to make Christmas Cookie-Cutter Ornaments by wonderful Martha Stewart.


But for now, I want to leave you with a playlist that I created for you, filled with some of my favorite Christmas songs. I just adore Christmas songs, don't you? As soon as Thanksgiving is over, it is time for Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble to sing those marvelous holiday tunes! To enjoy this playlist, you need to have Spotify, if not, you can easily downloaded here

 

How are you preparing for the holidays? I would love to know your ideas ☺

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

xoxo,

Pat

Christmas Gift Ideas Part I

Hey there lovelies!

Christmas is just around the corner! Can you believe it? I am super excited! I had been gathering ideas for presents because, you know, having the perfect gift for that special someone is really important. Therefore.....drum roll.....I gathered my first 6 Christmas gift ideas! Each week, I will be sharing 6 ideas giving you all a total of 12! The majority being DIY projects. I always find it very important and meaningful to create something lovely for someone that we care about, so gift a pampering kind-of-present with a Coconut-Lime and Sugar scrub, snuggle up with stunning sweater pillows and make that jet-setter happy with a roll-up traveling jewelry case, or cute laundry bags. All of these ideas are easy to make DIY projects, however.... Merchant & Mill's wonderful collection of goodies is something to look at! It's a quilters and sewers dream! And what about your quilter friend? They will be super happy with a yard of Festival Sparkle fabric, they will just love it!  
Stay tuned lovelies because there is much more to come in this fun month of December.  I prepared a couple of things that you will just adore!  
Links for each gift idea are provided below ☺
