Me as a bug.

I don't feel good?
Halloween! I love Halloween. It is the one time of year I go nuts. Fixing up the outside of my house. I have a new plan to set up my yard this year. my grand kids are older this year so some of my props that spooked them before can go out this year. I have  mummy that moans and his eyes glow. my grand kids are such wimps.  Even when I have them help with the setting up and  prove  it is all plastic.  My kids know I am a freak when it comes to Halloween.

So sorry .....

WOW, it occurred to me when I read my blog , It seamed more like an add. well its really not, I am just so new to blogging--and gathering my thoughts. I wanted this to be more like a how too, than a look at my product. So I with my deepest apologies, I am sorry. I will in the future this will not happen.
    On the good side of my post I did figure out how to keep it together and add pictures. So something positive came of my boo boo.

I love this apron.  What bride wouldn't love to get this in her gift basket.
She has such cute stuff.
The thing about making your own gift baskets, You put the things you want in them. Personalize your basket with your stile. Shop at stores that fit your budget. Dollar store or the high end stores. Put a handmade item in.  It is the thought that counts. Your basket will be remembered, You put effort and thought into the gift for them.   
    Gift giving can be hard. Racking your brain , what to give, how much to spend, colors, size, will they like it.  As a safe way out the ole gift card, well , I am hoping to help with gift giving, and make it a tad bit easier.  The rule I go by is  K.I.S.S  Keep It simple sweetheart.

1. Gender
2. Age
4.Time---One hour,a day, week, month?
5.Location , can it be given in person or does it need to be shipped.
6. How well do you know the person?
