Merry Indie Christmas

Photobucket

Happy Post Thanksgiving Folks!
Hope you had a great one!
We sure did.
(Pictures to come later.)

But first, if you're here from Follower's Fest, WELCOME!
Become a follower or leave a comment and I'll gladly come check out your space.
I always love to meet new bloggers and see the amazing things people are doing in their lives... it's a bit like looking in a stranger's home as you drive by at night when their lights are on... except with blogs they know you're looking and they're okay with it.
Very satisfying and slightly addictive.

On this blog, I tend to write about life, friends, family, and our adoption journey.
Today, however, in honor of a Merry Indie Christmas I thought I'd share with you a cheap gift idea.  I love word searches and at www.puzzlemaker.com you can make your own. Today, I used it to create a gift for my friend, Katherine.

 On this site, I created a word search with her name as the hidden word.  I then printed it, found her name, and circled it in red.  Next, I grabbed a clean jar (that my pasta sauce lived in last night), stuffed the puzzle inside, tied it with rafia & a ribbon, and topped it off with the letter 'H' (the first letter of her last name.)



Katherine loves office supplies, so Christmas morning this jar will be full of freshly sharpened pencils, a few of her favorite pens, and an old wooden ruler.
Done.
Way under $5 and the wrapping itself serves as a gift.

Have fun blog-hopping and cheers to the Christmas Season!
