Only a few days left until Christmas! Do you have everything ready?! I wanted to share with you a quick idea if you need a last minute gift for someone...


Here is what I did for a friend who is a HUGE Starbucks fan ;) I got a gift card and asked for an extra cup, lid and straw. I put the gift card in the cup and filled it with paper strips that I curled with the straight edge of my scissors. You know how you curl curling ribbon on gifts? You can curl paper strips the same way :) I think the gift will be a hit!

I have a couple winners from last week's blog comments! Keep them coming!!

Your trip looks awesome Erin...great pictures too. And those autograph books are soooo much better than the ones bought in the gift shops.



Send me your addresses and I will get some stacks right out to you :) 

Hope everyone is enjoying this week...there is nothing like the hustle and bustle before the holiday. But I LOVE getting to relax once the holiday is finally here :)

  27. What a really cute idea. Starbucks should make these up themselves and display them. I bet they could sell even more gift cards. Really neat! Thanks for sharing the idea and Congratulations to the winners.
