Holiday gifts…for yourself and others!

by Shelly

This holiday season feels a lot different than others in the past. Is it the failing failed economy, that our country is STILL in a war, or that our country still feels very divided? Probably all those things. Personally this has been THE MOST STRESSFUL YEAR ever..or at least in my more recent history. So, this Christmas and Thanksgiving I have really felt like knocking out the not so well thought out gifts and the impersonal last minute presents.

At the nice adult age of 33 I can’t believe what an amazing time in my life this is. And it’s just awesome to see some of my oldest and closest friends do just as well..if not better!…than I am at this point in our lives. For example my old friend Dabney of Dabney Lee Stationery and Dabney Lee at Home is killing it these days!!! When we first met back in our high school years, she was always so creative. A few of us girls would get together and do paper crafts of one kind or another and of course Dabney always came up with the cutest ideas. She also was always doodling her cute characters and people on cards and notes. So of course when she started her own stationery line it was not a total surprise. She was MEANT to do it!

Well back to the thought out gifts for this holiday season…. Dabney’s home line has some of the cutest ideas for all the women in your life! Check some of these ideas out:

 For your Mom or MIL:  Recipe Cards in lucite box $80.00
