It’s ALMOST that time of year!!

Hey everyone MelissaVT here!  I know it’s no surprise it’s almost Christmas time!  Since, after the back to school supplies were put away at the store the Christmas decorations came out!  I have a couple of crafy ideas for some inexpensive gifts!  I love doing these for my kids teachers and Sunday School teachers!

Aren’t those some great gifts!!  For the picture frames I just painted a frame from Michaels and printed out goodies from Nikki’s kits.  The clothes pins have magnets on the back to use anywhere.  And, who doesn’t love candles????


If you’re all wondering where I got this AWESOME kit from Nikki look now further!!  Well, you’ll have to wait a bit though!


Be sure to head to The Digi Chick THIS weekend!!  The kit will ONLY be around for the weekend!


Happy creating!!

How cute are those!!  I live making the little “extras” to go on the goodies!

Here’s our family calendar I add extras too.  There is a shop here that sells different types of magnets for about everything imaginable.  I need to keep myself out of there otherwise I would really be broke!  I just printed out and put magnets on the backs of the extras!

I even made up the clothes pin magnets to hold stuff.  I had made other clothes pin magnets for my kids’ teachers last year for Christmas.  Easy, inexpensive, and the teachers loved it!!


Hurry up and grab A Lil Spooky it’s almost Halloween!  Until next time!
