Santa, Come Back!

If you're anything like me, you're in a slight post-Christmas daze/depression. Even though I started counting down to Christmas months ago, it still feels like it came and went too fast! I feel a little bit lost without any presents to wrap or cookies to bake. I'm still watching Love Actually, Elf, and The Holiday. I've piled up all my Christmas presents and I just stare at them, reliving the wonderful feeling of opening them on Christmas morning. I don't even want to use them yet, because then Christmas is REALLY over. Pathetic, right? Don't worry, I'm well aware. Thankfully, iLoveToCreate is here to help me find MUCH better ways to pass the time. Over at ilovetocreate.com they have a Project of the Day feature. Each day a new project is posted. These cute projects help me stay in the Christmas spirit, and at least I'll have something to show for my hours spent pining over Christmas! How cute is this:
Who doesn't love a Snuggie?! They were the IT gift this year. Personalize your Snuggie with Tulip® Glam-It-Up!™ Iron-On Fashion Designs™ and Tulip® 3D Fashion Paint . I can't wait to curl up in mine by the fire as I listen to Christmas music and stare lovingly at the Christmas tree. And does it get any cuter than these Wonky Penguins?
I don't think so. I think this is the most creative use of the Duncan Oh Four Bisque Chopstick Holder I've ever seen! And here's a bonus, these aren't technically Christmas decorations, so you can let them stay around a little longer. You can find these and a ton of other great projects under the Project of the Day section at ilovetocreate.com. Let's make this years Christmas depression a productive one! It's never too early to get a start on next year. I mean, it's only 361 days away... :)

A Summery Treat for a Cold Winters Night!

Well folks, it's only 13 days till Christmas! Hard to believe, I know. Still searching for the perfect gift for that special someone? Look no further, I have the cutest idea that's particularly special because it was made by YOU!
Even your lactose intolerant relatives will love appreciate these lovely ceramic ice cream cones! These particular cones were created by NYC artist Virginia Sin. Cute as they are, why pay $18 a cone when you can create a set yourself for much less?! Our Duncan Oh Four Bisque Ice Cream Cone Box is even cooler because you can use it to serve ice cream, or the box can be used to store all your toppings! Customize the box with favorite colors, or to get the same matte look as Virginia, just paint the box with nontoxic, food safe SN352. Anyone will love this adorable reminder of summer during the cold winter months. How cute would they look with a scoop of red peppermint ice cream on top?! Mmm my mouths watering just at the thought.
