gift ideas...

so him decided very last minute that we were going to the family party one day early! now, i believe ANY woman would be a little overwhelmed. i quickly made about 5 new lists, (packing list, gift list, food list, etc.) and they moved to the top of shopping list, cleaning list, mailing Christmas cards list, and party list. so i had about one hour to make a salad (but i still needed the ingredients), pick up the cards at the photo store (cause i wanted to see how they turned out), and pack (something i can't have him do, or else i have no idea where things are and it only causes frustration.) so i left a new list for him of what to do while i ran to the store: #1 keep the house clean! (nobody likes to come home to a mess, so whenever we're going far away this is VERY important!) and off to the store i went. i had yet to find something to give the siblings as a small reminder we love em' all! i found these cute jars when i snuck into hobby lobby (only for a minute!!) and then while at the grocery store picked up some nuts, and look how cute they turned out!
the initial plan was to find cute jars and fill them with home made carmel popcorn....but i think this turned out just GREAT!

Cute idea Marci! Don't you just hate that stressful feeling of having to buy SOMEthing but not knowing for sure what that may be??!! I think you did a terrific job. And, who wouldn't love those mad bow-tying skills you have, woo hoo!

P.S. I just love this blog, so fun to read!

Oh they turned out adorable! I don't know about you but sometimes I tend to work better and get more done a lot faster under pressure,...although, note to my hubby, I wouldn't be very pretty to live with under pressure to long of a time span.

Oh point of comment...well done! =O)

I loved this idea. In fact so much I copied it for my neighbor gifts and stuck baked goodies inside instead! Thanks for all the fun ideas Marci!
