Holiday Hostess Gifts Under $35

Here is the newest gallery that I just came up with for mom.me

I had a lot of fun working on this piece, but I had such a tough time trying to narrow down the gifts for a 10 item gallery. I think that I came up with some unique, affordable items and I really tried to stay away from big box stores and tried to promote as many small designers and small business as I could. Below are just a few that I chose.

Chair Crush

I have a major major chair crush going on right now. So much so that this chair might make me not want to get the butterfly chair that I just posted about for the back patio and get this beauty instead. 

The Pioneer Chair is handmade by a family owned and operated  business in New Hampshire. Its modeled after chairs that are dated back to the Mayan Civilization and is designed to be therapeutic and good for the back. Sign me up! I want this chair!

Available at Joinery

Currently Drooling Over…

I am a huge fan of Baggu bags and they recently collaborated with Fredericks & Mae to create these awesome drawstring tassel purses and pouches. Made from 100% natural milled vegetable tanned leather with colorful horsehair tassels. The large bag comes in Black and Natural leather, but the pouches are available in colors like Poppy, Fuchsia and Cobalt Blue. They are made in New York, NY so it’s a great way to support products that are made in the USA!

Instagram and Roundgraphy

I have to admit I am a bit obsessed with Instagram its become sort of a mini blog for me and now that I’ve found Roundgraphy I think that I have even more of a problem.

Halloween (late)

I really wanted to get these photos up of Skye’s Halloween costume that I made him, but guess what? I got sick AGAIN. Seriously, we need to catch a break at my house. I can’t keep on getting sick like this. Especially with a husband that tours all the time. Anyway, I have become an obsessive hand-washing, hand sanitizing freak. Two year olds + playgrounds+ whatever else they touch = nasty germ territory. Any tips from moms (or dads) out there on how to stay healthy?

We did have a blast on Halloween. Skye went from not wanting to wear the costume that I made him to not wanting to take it off and then wanting to wear it out again the next night. That made me so happy since I worked so hard on it for him. And I stood in line at Jo-Ann Fabrics for forty-five minutes waiting to buy sparkly black felt with a massive sinus infection.  We didn’t let him eat too much candy, but thats because Zach and I ate it all. I only feel a tiny bit guilty.

I love that he didn’t want to take the costume off!
