Comments Off on Great Halloween Treats For Grandparents!

If you are lucky enough to have a favorite senior in your life like we are, we’ve got a great idea for a Halloween treat for them. Our Nana is in an assisted living apartment, and we thought it would be fun to take her over some treats for her to share with others in her community. We were able to round up this great little cost effective, and fun bucket of treat bags.  As well as some cute costume accessories too!  Nana is all set for Halloween, all under $18: –      ...

Hi guys! Just a quick post, today I am having lunch with Lizette, a dear friend of mine. As you can tell, I gift a lot because my friends are a priority and a significant gift in my life. I know that today, my friend needs a little love, so off I went to the goodie cupboard to chose something special with some added personal touches. It took me less than 15 minutes, and cost me less than $6 to make a special gift that my friend loved so much…she photographed...

My lifetime girlfriends are a constant source of joy, I really don’t know how to say I any other way. I am a gift-giving junkie…always on the gift lookout, are you? Today I am having a birthday lunch with my girlfriend Marilyn, who literally took me under her wing almost 20 years ago and was my very first friend here in Las Vegas. Since we are both October babies, we have a tradition of meeting for a birthday lunch in the middle of the two dates. It’s not about the gift,...

…that looks FANTASTIC and won’t break the bank! The holidays are upon us, and we took a few fun hours this week to get the house looking festive for fall. The essential ingredient to home decorating for the holidays, is to save and store what you buy over the years, use what you already have on hand, add some on-sale items, candles and bows you’ve saved from earlier in the year, and of course: GOURDS!
