The best kind of Christmas Shopping

At this point in our lives, my husband and I have a hard time shopping for one another. What ends up happening is he tells me what he wants or needs and I buy it for him. When it comes to him buying something for me it usually easier on us both if I just order it and tell him, "Hey, this is what you are giving me for Christmas this year!" Less stress on us both for sure!!

Last year I bought myself a Silhouette Cameo for a great price through Amazon. This year I'm not sure what I want yet. It's usually buy something hobby related.

I do know that the majority of our purchases each year are online. It's just so much easier to order from the warm cozy comfort of my chair at home in my slippers versus dealing with the crowds of people, slippery roads and below zero temps that we have here already this year! Back in the day I didn't mind fighting the crowds to get the hot deal on Black Friday. Now you have to go on Brown Thursday to get them. Sorry, but no... I'm at home on Thanksgiving cooking for family and enjoying the day.

So back to shopping for my husband's gift to me...

I think I'll spend some time browsing through Amazon's crafty things and see what I can find

Kids are getting Kindles for Christmas!

The kids have been using our old 1st gen. Kindle Fire and my really old Asus Transformer tablets for a year now. They work but are a bit buggy and not reliable not to mention the battery life in both is pretty short.

We have been keeping an eye on the newest Kindle Fire tablets as possible Christmas gifts for them. Today Amazon has a pretty good special, $20 off the $139 regular price. So we decided it's time to pull the trigger and get our Christmas shopping started!

Project Life at my local Michaels!

I know Project Life has been at a lot of Michaels and Hobby Lobby locations for quite some time already. Today was the first time I've seen any of it here locally! I admit, I haven't kept going on PL and I haven't scrapped since September, but it's still nice to see that these products are now available without having to order online!


Of course you can always order from Amazon and if you have a Prime membership it's even better with the free 2 day shipping!
