The Christmas M&M’s can be purchased in the Christmas section (and not in the confectionary aisle) at most supermarkets.
What are you giving your kids teachers this year?
Do you do a bulk run of something to give to neighbours and friends at Christmas?
Are you sorted for Christmas or flying by the seat of your pants like me?
I may look organised, but it’s all smoke and mirrors. The beauty of all the things we do here at FGB is that they are easy peasy and require little effort for a big effect!

*If you are a fan of vintage graphics – you will find this site to be your mecca!
P.S. I have seen many, many tutorials online for making your own vanilla extract and brandy & rum can also be used. Here is a more detailed tutorial should you need it.
* the real deal kind of camping – in the middle of nowhere, no electricity, no running water, no showers and the shovel & toilet roll over your shoulder to find a good tree kind of toilet.
I’ve been loving working with this simple and easy to use clay lately. The kids really enjoy playing with it too and making their own creations.
* There are MOPS groups all over the world. MOPS is short for ‘Mothers of Preschoolers’ and according to our facebook page - MOPS offers a caring & accepting atmosphere where Mums have an opportunity to share concerns, make friends, explore areas of creativity and learn. We have some really worthwhile speakers & discussions.

Need a cute hostess gift? How about a gift for a teenager (seriously how tricky can those ones be!) or maybe a house warming present or even a ‘just because’ gift?
Thanks so much Amy for letting me share this fun & simple, yet very clever idea!
I love the idea of repackaging something to make it look even more exciting and adding the personal touch. Amy has another similar idea (great for teacher gifts) on her blog at the moment over here.
I also came across another repackaging idea here which even has a link (via the comments section) to the cool free labels that they used.
This is the last in the series of simple handmade gifts for girls. Thanks so much to those of you who guest posted and contributed their own ideas along the way! I have just added a page on the top of my blog, collating all of the wonderful ideas! Hopefully you’ve all got some ideas for Christmas and beyond! If you have made anything from these tutorials – please let me know, I’d love to hear from you!
Now, top stitch all around that gap, so as to neaten the edge.
