On the 12th day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me, 12 drummers drumming.

I could find a million uses for this hand-stamped ribbon.

On the 11th day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me 11 pipers piping.

Seeing as though I have a major hole in my heart that is filled with only gnomes and owls I changed this one up a bit. Here is your piper:)

On the 10th day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me 10 lords a leaping. Of course the geek in me wants to go Lord Of The Rings on this one, but for your sake I wont.

Love the whole set of prints by London Particulars, but this one is fitting since the flight is over the House of Lords.

Okay, I couldn't stop myself! Here it is...

On the 7th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me 7 swans a swimming. Ah, the swan, a real pretty bird. That's a nice gift. May I suggest though instead of seven live swans something a little more practical?

Love love love this crocheted necklace by Big Frozen Melon. It is swan inspired and just beautiful. I highly recommend taking a look at the entire shop as it is all fabulous!

On the 6th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me, 6 geese a laying. Doesn't sound like much of a true love to me on this one. But let me suggest a replacement in case your true love is reading this.

PS, I predict that geese will be the next "in" or trendy bird. You heard it here first!

I really love this geese wall decal by Wall Star Graphic.

On the 5th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me...5 golden rings.

This set of 5 stackable rings by Wendy Culpepper is only $70 so what is not to love?

On the 4th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me four calling birds...

This print by Barking Bird Art takes calling birds quite literal, and I love it!

Next is a rooster "wake-up call" necklace by Dolls and Molls, It may be a stretch on the traditional song, is something I may just end up buying for myself for Christmas.

One the 3rd day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me three French hens...

Now I know you think "country" when you think of hens, but I was determined to find non-country items for this day. Enjoy!

I love the retro kitsch of this print by Three Sisters Ink. It would go great in my newish blue and red kitchen!

This headband from Pizpireta nearly gave me goosebumps looking at it. It is so well done!

And lastly I loved this "cackling hens" type print from Fat Crow Press.

On the 2nd day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me. Two turtle doves? Why not? So for the second day of Christmas I found these finds for you. Enjoy!

This pillow is just great, and I did a triple take when I saw the price (quite low which makes me love it even more). Check out Greensleeves shop for other finds!

Next is this fabulous cuff from Lievre which I ADORE!

Start of the 12 days of Christmas

You know how it goes...On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree!!!! So here are my favorite partridge themed finds of the day!

Love these labels by Bohtieque!

This necklace from ChinaCherie is just gorgeous, and would look fab all year long! But let's be honest, all of her jewelry is fabulous! Love it all.

Lastly, this bowl from Refresh. I love it because it is funny, cute, and a great way to re-use old albums!

So, that's it, my 1st day of Christmas! Enjoy!

Giving this another go

Since I found Facebook I have been HOOKED. So I need another something to do, right? Anyway, I am going to use this blog to keep family and friends informed with what is going on in my life, what I am up to, what I have in the works as far as crafts...yadda yadda. You get the gist.

Oh, and I have a GREAT deal to share! You can get 50 free Christmas cards at the website See Here. You only have to pay shipping which was a whopping $3.19 for me. Use the code "newbaby" at checkout and you get 50 free 4x8 cards with envelopes! Then with a separate purchase you can get 100 free prints with the code "prints". It is a Fuji film site so it has to be good, right? I placed my order on Friday and got an email that they shipped on Sat so I am happy:)
