Favorite Friday Favorites # 10: Christmas 2013 Edition

1. DIY Gifts for Friends & Family- 

I like this Peppermint Sugar Scrub from Broke But Bougie, but there are so many good ideas on Pinterest! And what about baking? A nice cookie tray for all your neighbors? Add some cute packaging and you have yourself a gift! But you might want to make an extra of whatever you decide to make for yourself to try out. You know, for quality control. Yes, quality control.......

2. Holiday Films- 

Now, you know I myself a holiday movie and Christmas is no different! We watched "A Muppet Christmas Carol" earlier this week and "Scrooged" tonight. We still have quite a few on our list (including "It's a Wonderful Life", "Elf", "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and the Garfield Christmas Special), but here is a little snippit from one of my favorites to get you in the Christmas spirit!

3. Much Anticipated Time With Family- 

Our Christmas tree 2013 

Christmas market in Georgetown, Colorado 

Christmas in Hayden, CO. with my daddy 

Sledding in Hayden with my brother, Rob
4. Christmas Wrapping- 

Stitched wrapping paper 
Vintage bags. How sweet are these? Not just for Christmas! 
Chalkboard paper. Very versatile and unique! When was the last time you got a package wrapped like this? 
Galactic Santa! Retro Wrapping Paper from space!

5. Christmas Themed Children's Books- 

Really, anything by Jan Brett is solid. 

The librarian in my elementary school used to read this with a wonderful Italian accent. Thank you for that, Mrs. Walker. <3 nbsp="" td="">
"Jesus our brother, strong and good..." 
If you haven't read this one, "Red Ranger Came Calling" is a must for this Christmas season! 
Happy Friday, Friends!!
