First off, I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I pray that it will be a special and blessed time with family and friends.
I wanted to remind everyone of the importance of showing your appreciation for those who have taken the time to give you a gift... whether it was a plate of cookies from the neighbors or fancy jewelry from your hubby, everyone loves and deserves to know that you are thankful for the gift they gave you.
I think thank-you notes are important, and I haven't done the best job of sending them out in recent years. I hope you'll agree that writing a quick note of thanks is important, and I am writing this blog as a reminder to myself to send them out. You can find thank you notes at the dollar store, you can make your own, or I can design some for you.
Thanks to all of my wonderful clients for ordering Christmas Cards and gifts. I really appreciate your business, and I look forward to working with you in the future. You are a blessing to me!

I know that you are probably close to someone who adores their pet, so I thought I would post some gifts that they would love to receive for Christmas. Petsmart has tons of stuff online that you can't find in stores. They have mugs, t-shirts, key chains, socks (for humans and dogs), ornaments, calendars, journals, and the Monopoly Dog Lovers' Edition for only $29.99! They also have Charity Wrapping paper with Kitty Cats on it... proceeds go to charity! I love the little Cat photo holder for only $9.99!
Wrapables.com has this super fun Dachshund Salt & Pepper Set for only $14.95. SO adorable. They also have these unique Pet Stockings for the same price! If I had a cat, I would want the Diva Delights Fashionista Apron. SO cute! So are the Cattitude i-Pots!
If you want to buy your dog a Christmas present, I would go with any treat from Three Dog Bakery. They even have a Holidog Sampler full of Christmas cookies! Their treats are Pudge and Ellie approved!
I also highly recommend Mrs. Meyers Clean Day pet products. Her Oatmeal Pet Shampoo and Odor Removing Carpet Cleaner are my favorite products. Oatmeal is an important ingredient in pet shampoo in order to keep skin moisturized. Her products are environmentally friendly and have a refreshing scent. Currently, they are giving away their Peppermint Candles with any $30 purchase!

Which reminds me... make sure you schedule your Christmas photo session! It's time to place your Christmas card orders. If you're not having a photo, it's still time to work on Christmas cards. If you would like to view the Flossy Christmas Card Catalog, e-mail me and I will send you a copy!
Contact me if you need referrals for Photographers!

You can stick these bad boys on walls, votives, hurricanes (the big glass vases, not the natural disaster), wood, glass blocks, windows, cars, picture frames, picture frame glass, white boards, front doors, plates, sinks, refrigerators, trifle bowls, serving dishes, metal signs, pizza pans, pumpkins, Christmas ornaments, mirrors, wood blocks, shelves, breakfast trays, wooden chairs and other furniture... WOW! They have quotes, graphics, and all sorts of wonderful things.
On a wooden board... beautifully painted by my hubby. I can't wait to hang it on the wall for Christmas. Pudge wanted to be in the photo...

A cool idea... Paint a small canvas a fun, bright color, and have your child put his or her hand print right in the center. They are cheerful decorations and great gifts for a grandparent. Red Envelope even has a kit!
$39.95 from Red Envelope
This year, I created the Fat Stack, which is a tall, personalized, square notepad tied together with a ribbon. I don't have a very good camera, so I couldn't capture the fatness, but basically, it's a really tall stack of paper, and each piece has the person's name (or whatever you want) at the top. They work really well for grocery lists, reminder notes, etc. I also have them available in spiral bound. Stationery is a great gift! I always love having notecards around to use for thank-you's. Contact me to order!
5x5 = $13.50 7x7 = $18.50
Stay tuned, more gift ideas to come!

This year, I promised myself that I would be organized and get a jump start on gift buying. I LOVE buying gifts. I also love wrapping gifts. I want to have extremely unique and pretty packages, so I come up with a theme and color scheme. I've done it since junior high, and it's a skill that I learned from my mother. We had pristine, coordinated trees that were way cooler than the ones in department stores. Her packages were BEAUTIFUL, and she would make her own bows. She is like a short little Martha Stewart, but with a way better personality and a better sense of style.
So, that's why I'm blogging about Christmas. I know that it's annoying that they already have Christmas stuff out at the stores, but it's time to think about family photos, Christmas cards, gifts, travel plans, wrapping paper, and decor.
I will be posting gift ideas... from handmade gifts to designer duds throughout the next three months.

We hung the escort cards from a chandalier, another fun idea from my mom of In Awe Weddings and Events. It looked very pretty and feminine!
We created custom pockets for the programs and hung them on the ceremony chairs.
We used this monogram on the menus, invitations, and thank you notes!
