As Christmas fast approaches, we’re here to remind you that YOU too deserve great, thoughtful gifts under the tree this year! Join us as we talk about our own wish lists and favorite gifts from holidays past, and get some ideas you can drop as not-so-subtle hints this week!
A Peek into Instagram…
First we shared some personal stories by way of our Instagram streams. Be sure to follow us (@MeaganFrancis, @PowersOfMine, and @TheMomHour) to see more funny kid pics and slices of life. Let us know in an IG comment that you found us through the podcast, too, so we can say hello!
Sarah’s wine cork snowman ornaments were inspired by several different online images, but this one from drinknectar.com is closest to what we did. Most of the materials are self-evident from the photos, but we used Lara’s Crafts® Wood Candle Cups (painted black) from Michael’s for the hats, which turned out so cute!
