This week’s Friday Wrap includes five of my favorite finds. They’re are all seasonally inspired, and I hope you’ll enjoy these treasures as much as I do!
>>One: Kindness Elves
I just discovered an adorable alternative to Elf on the Shelf. They’re called Kindness Elves.I love the message they send – especially this time of year. My girls are still at an age where they love Mr. Elf on the Shelf and some of his silly antics. My son is a bit older. He’s 11 yo and a bit “grown up” for Mr. Elf. (Silent tear) I think he’d appreciate the challenge of a Kindness Elf, though.
We may not completely replace Mr. Elf, but I think these new and kind creatures will be a good addition to the family this Christmas.
I had trouble finding the ones from The Imagination Tree, but look at these amazing Nordic-inspired elves on Etsy. I’m ordering one today.
If you want some unique art to jazz up your home or one-of-a-kind holiday cards to send to friends, look no further than Minted.com. It’s a marketplace of independent artists – who are all downright amazing. It’s like a less crafty Etsy. Clicking through the fabric section alone will make you want to learn to sew. No lie.
>>Three: Custom Postage Stamps
Once you order your one-of-a-kind holiday cards from Minted, you’ll want custom postage stamps to go along with them, right?! At Zazzle.com you can order stamps that have a personalized photo.
If you want to save the cute family pic for inside the envelope, take a pretty picture of the outside of your home and upload the image to use as your stamps! Use code TISTHESEASON for added discounts.
>>Four: Ugly Sweater
Okay, I may have just found Brandon’s sweater for his company Christmas party.
They’re having an ugly sweater contest this year, and hubs is always a good sport about these kinds of things. (One of the many reasons why I love him.) This one might take the prize. What do you think?
>>Five: Scarf Tutorial
If you’re obsessed with scarves like I am, you’ll appreciate this video tutorial. One of my cousins who lives in Minnesota shared this on Facebook, and I was so happy to find some new, creative ways to wrap and wear my lovely top layers. I know you will, too!
That’s a Friday Wrap! I’m excited to link up with April, Darci, Christina, and Natasha again this week.Be sure to check my blog next week for some DIY hostess gifts, such as herb-infused honey, that you can make and take to your Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) meal.
Until then, have a blessed weekend, and go be creative!
