we took our Coca-Cola Bottle Reindeer and started to pass them out to holiday shoppers as they passed by. the boys were very excited at first, but then they got nervous. however, after they gave out the first reindeer and saw the smile it brought to that person’s face, they were even more excited to finish passing them out.

Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts from Michaels Craft Store

michaels-craft-store-gift-guide

 

when you are out shopping this holiday season, don’t forget to stop by your Michaels Craft Store or check it out online. i love shopping at Michaels for my boys…(and myself) because i like my boys to be creative and not on those electronic devices all the time. Michaels has great activity kits for kids and a whole lot of great stocking stuffers. this Gift Guide for Gift from Michaels Craft Store share some of my favorite items that i personally have tried and loved.

Rainbow Loom – Rainbow Loom was all the rage last year…and is still pretty popular this year. the new Monster Kit Loom is sure to spark some more ideas in your kiddies looming skills, and a few packs of replacement bands will make great stocking stuffers. the kids will need something to do during winter break…Rainbow Looms to the rescue.

Carnivorous Creations – how cool is this! grow your own collection of feared and famous meat eating plants. this set has seeds from more than ten varieties of carnivorous plants, so you can watch these fascinating plants grow into bug-eating monsters. this rare and unusual collection of carnivorous plants will flourish for years in this specially designed terrarium with proper care.

Tulip Body Art Kit – i love these body art kits by Tulip. you can make temporary tattoos and fun face paint designs that don’t smear off. there are jewels and glitter to add to your designs. this is a great kit for kids who love designing, makeup or fashion.

Kinetic Sand – out of all the Kinectic Sand i have tried, i love the Creatology Brand. it is less messy than the other brands, and is fun for all ages. i find myself playing with it while i am on conference calls and all my boys play with it for long periods of time.

Science Kits & Smithsonian Science Kits – do you have a little scientist or a curious child who like to see how things work? Smithsonian, Sciencewiz and Green Science kits are great. they make learning science fun and easy to understand. they are a great way to build your kiddies knowledge.

Friendship Bracelet Maker – i remember loving to make friendship bracelets as a little girl. this kit has directions and the the tools to make some fantastic bracelets.

Perler Beads – what i love about Perler Beads is that they entertain my kid for hours and let them be creative. although there are a million pieces, you can pretty much contain them while being played with. and i often find myself joining in the fun with the kids.

Creatology Art Kit – this Art Kit is one of our favorites. my son own it, and really enjoys the variety of art supplies it includes. i also love the carrying case that makes it easy to store all these supplies that would else wise end up all over the house.

Duck Tape – believe it or not, Duck Tape makes a great gift. there are so many things that you can make out of Duck Tape, from wallets, to bracelets to even clothing! kids can find all sorts of tutorials online for fun projects. so don’t forget to stuff a roll or two in those stockings.

Do you shop with Intent?

black fridayit’s already begun, and it’s about to get even CRAZIER.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING.

if your inbox is anything like mine, there are dozens of emails with Black Friday reminders….and most don’t even start on Black Friday! because as we all know…Thanksgiving Day is the “new” Black Friday. blah.

there’s nothing like shoving turkey in your mouth as fast as you can, so that you can hustle over to one of the local shopping centers to stand in line for that once a year shopping trip that lasts through the night. who cares about all the family and friends who have traveled near and far to be with you. because Heaven knows, if you aren’t first in-line, you may not get that deal you’ve had you’re eye on.

i too have gotten caught up in the Black Friday frenzy. i have stayed up all night long, wondering the aisles filling up my cart. and every year, i come home with so much more than i planned on getting…stuff i didn’t even know i needed. yes….i have gotten some great deals like a huge television for a great price. it was awesome….but, shopping Black Friday has been different the last few years. maybe because i’m older, or maybe it’s because i have experienced first hand how it feels to come home with a bunch of stuff that just ends up broken or tossed aside a few days after the holidays. i can’t help but feel kind of sick to my stomach as i watch everyone shop. it’s like a mad house. pushing. shoving. and disregards for others in their paths. the waste. the mindless spending. (i know not everyone is like this…however, the whole experience seems to feel this way to me)

where is the INTENT?

when it comes to Black Friday, the stores know what they are doing. products are strategically placed to cross your path…practically BEGGING you to pick them up and put them in your cart.

deal. deal. deal.

cheap. cheap. cheap.

more. more. more.

it may be the flashy sticker price that is shockingly low, or the fact that they’ve printed our kiddies favorite character on the packaging. it may be that every body else wants it, and hence we “need” it too. or the fact that we are bored waiting in line, so lets just fill up the cart.

whatever the reason that these products mysteriously make it into our carts, i urge us to take a minute….a second thought….and shop with INTENT.

do i really need it?

am i just buying it because it’s cheap?

do my kiddies really need a stocking full of dollar bin crap that is just going to end up in the trashcan a week later? not really.

am i just buying it so they can have a lot of “stuff” to open? what does that teach our children? what does this tell our friends?

STUFF. that’s all it is. however, most of us LOVE stuff. and we love to see our kids excitement as they open gifts on Christmas morning. it really is magical. but you know what is even more magical? seeing them open that one thing they have really wanted, the thing that they would rather have than all those other gifts combined. the gift the was bought with INTENT…just for them. to them, the rest of the gifts are just fluff.

and how much fluff do we really need?

this Black Friday, i urge you to shop with INTENT.

definition of intent

buy gifts that will actually mean something to the recipient. it’s an awesome feeling to have when you know that you got that perfect item that will make that person who receives it light up inside. a gift that shows that person you were really thinking of them when you chose it just for them. it feels SO much better than if you bought them a bunch of meaningless trinkets because they were cheap and a Black Friday doorbuster.

yes, there are AMAZING BLACK FRIDAY DOORBUSTERS.

and yes….

we all LOVE A DEAL.

all i am saying is “think” twice before you put that item in your cart. we don’t really need all that fluff.

and you may find that more is less, and less is MORE after all, the true meaning of Christmas doesn’t come from a store.

to make this meal, i did my shopping at Smart & Final. i love, love, love, Smart & Final. it is my go to store for party shopping as i have written about before, and it’s also one of my favorite places to shop for food in general. it’s my secret oasis…because it has great items…like family sized food items, fun bulk candy, drinks, unique paper goods, party supplies and a whole lot more. i always find unique food and serving ware items. i really like Smart & Final because it carries warehouse sized items with the feel and convenience of a neighborhood grocery store and there’s NO club fee. it’s one-stop shopping because you can buy everything from fresh produce to bakery items in large and small sizes. Smart & Final has great exclusives lines such as First Street, La Romanella, and Ambiance that are priced at a great value….this makes shopping for big families, parties, camping trips and family barbecues perfect.

i was able to make my entire Crockpot Chicken Verde Burritos with Caramelized Onions dinner by shopping exclusively at Smart & Final. here is my grocery list for the meal: Chicken Breasts, Sour Cream, Salsa Verde, Monterey Jack Cheese, Queso Fresco, Cilantro, Lime, Tomatoes, Avocado, Onion, Tortillas, and Refried Beans.

this is a warm, savory, comforting dish that is not heavy at all. by itself, it is low calorie and low fat. not so much after adding the sour cream and cheese, but you can adjust any of the toppings to fit your liking. it tastes so fresh with the cilantro, and even better with a squeeze of lime. serve it with some pico de gallo and refried beans topped with queso fresco. your family will love this meal, and being so simple to make, it will probably make it into your dinner meal line up. enjoy!

P.S. you can ,ale this exact meal using pork instead of chicken. i like it just as much, and it probably is a little juicier. just prepare it with the same instructions, but make sure to skin the fat off the top of the salsa verde liquid after it is cooked and before you shred it.
