Making A List And Checking It Twice!

I love the holiday season.  It is by far the best time of year.  Just this week the City where I reside decorated the annual Christmas Tree in town square.  Taking my leisurely trip to the mall, I found the stores already knee deep in the thick of decorating for holiday season.  I thought it would be a excellent time to look around for great holiday gift ideas for under $100.00.  Getting ahead of the crowded stores that will commence in a few short weeks is my game plan.

Carol's Daughter-Beauty by Nature!

As women we often forget to take time for ourselves.  It is a good way to give back to yourself the gift of rejuvenation and relaxation. Women are more susceptible to stress-related diseases, so it is critical that we learn to find time for ourselves.  I don't believe that there is a woman alive that does not enojy pampering herself from head to toe every now and then no matter the age. I support this idea and it is important that we do so; without guilt. You have your own life and your emotional and physical body needs care.  So find some time to pamper yourself.  I love those moments when I can relax and unwind listening to the sounds of Kenny G (Rhythm & Romance).  Carol's Daughter products are a great way to begin your pampering routine.

Handmade Greeting Cards--Simply Splendid!

I am so not good at selecting cards.  No matter the occasion, be it Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Christmas or Holy Communion, I can never find the right card to say exactly what I would like.  However, over the years, I've become better at selecting cards for those "very special" occasions when store purchased cards simply does not fit the bill.

Lotus Art Studio handmade greeting cards for all occassions are a work of art.  You are able to personalize your card from front to back.   Online, you select the font and the message you want to convey. It's easy as 1 2 3.
