Can you believe the holidays are already upon us? Seriously, next week is November.

Why does time fly? Why?

Make it stop!

Anyway, since we can’t make it stop, we need to get on with the planning of things. As far as the gift-giving part goes, I’m going to try to share ideas over the next couple of weeks with you as I discover them myself. Please don’t hesitate to let me know about any you find as well. I’ll have my list ready.

For starters, this old post and step-by-step tutorial, Fancy Coloring Art Project, is a great way for kids to create a personal gift for parents or grandparents.

It doesn’t cost a lot of money, or take too much time either. It’s fun and simple. And, around here, fun and simple are always good in my book.

Here’s the link:

I hope you enjoy meeting Mary Helen, and again, if you have any gift ideas to share, please do!
