Last minute EASY neighbor gifts!!

Looking for a few CUTE last minute neighbor gift ideas? I have the best and SO creative friends and neighbors. This cute litte snowman was a present that my oldest son got from church!!

You'll need:
A large candy bar!
white paper
Tissue paper-different colors
First wrap your candy bar in white paper!
Next you'll want to tie a bow with tissie paper around the bottom
Make a hat with tissue paper, you'll need tape to make it stay and some ribbon to tie the top!
Then all you need to do is draw on a cute snowman face!!
Cute huh!!
Thanks to all the cute ladies that do so much for our kids!!
The next one I found on my door step last night from my cute friend Katie!!
My camera is not the greatest so its kind of hard to see. I LOVE it. Such a great idea for a photo holder!!

I'm not sure how she made it exactly, but this is what I would do.

I would mod podge the paper onto the clip, then depending on what you have, add vinyl letters,stamps, stickers, or paper letters to write whatever you would like your holder to say!!
Then add a little bit a flair using whatever you have.

I am loving both of these great ideas!! And the best part......they are calorie free!!!

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! I am looking forward to spending it with my family!!

Gotta Try This

When I was packing my bag for the hospital right before baby
#3 came along, I went to the store looking for a sample size
shampoo to take with me. I stumbled across

Dove Damage
Therapy shampoo and conditioner.

Let me tell you, I LOVE it! I have used tons of professional brands when I was in cosmotology school and loved them, but if you are looking for a great product with a small price tag......this is the one to try!

My hair feels so healthy and bouncy! As a blonde, natural and with some help, my hair gets really damaged by bleach and all the other fun things we all do to our hair, flat irons, blow driers, curling irons, you name it. I really think this is the best my hair has felt!

So give it a try and let me know what you think!
