Holidays Made Easy- Part 3


Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday have come and gone … I believe it's high time to let the wrapping begin!
 
Here are some step-by-step notes on how to wrap a 'reusable' (or, as referred to by many, the "Soap Opera") gift box.  Apparently, soap opera stars always receive gifts wrapped like a "HolleyWrap" box! 
This is what we're shooting for: an elegantly wrapped gift box with a removable top.

You Decide Where the Money Goes


Canvas on Demand, a company where they take one of your photos and transform it into an amazing piece of canvas art, is letting facebook fans decide where they will donate money this year.  They are focusing their philanthropic efforts on local non-profits, and YOU get to help!

In this special holiday giving campaign, Canvas on Demand will give .25 cents for EVERY facebook “Like” each participating non-profit organization receives on it’s donation page.

For more information and a list of participating organizations, please click here.  Plus, if your organization isn’t already participating, you can apply online today and start raising funds.

Also, for each canvas voucher sold on an organization’s fundraising page, Canvas on Demand will donate $10.

This kind of giving is a win-win for all!

Our parent-writer, Carrie Vittitoe, makes Christmas preparations a little bit easier by starting it all at the beginning of the year, and it all begins with saving money.  It really adds up...

January
• Save money from husband’s first paycheck in the Christmas account.
February-May
• Continue socking money away in the Christmas account.
June-July-August
• Keep saving.
• Purchase an ornament for each child from our summer vacation.

Holiday Craft for the Kids


Part of the excitement of preparing for the holidays includes gift-making. Homemade gifts from our children (and grandchildren) can be creative expressions of the holiday spirit and the most cherished of gifts. With that in mind, my granddaughter and I set to work on some special (we hope) gifts that kids can easily make for giving.
