Great Deal on Monogrammed Luggage Tags

Here is a little something you may not know about me: I LOVE all things monogrammed! This brings me to another inexpensive and personal gift idea I'd like share with you. While purchasing some books for Christmas presents at Books-A-Million today, I found beautiful monogrammed luggage tags marked 50 % off.

I purchased three of these beauties for just $3.49 each this afternoon. Would have loved one for myself, but they didn't have any letter "S" left. There were an assortment of letters still in stock at the Martinsburg store. These will make great gifts for three friends! The luggage tags are chocolate brown with taupe lettering and a bow made of grosgrain ribbon.

Homemade Inexpensive Coasters

I love making homemade Christmas gifts. Over the next few weeks, I'm going to post some of the homemade gifts I'm making this holiday season for family, friends and teachers. Today, I want to share with you coasters I've been making this weekend. After quick stops to Target, Michaels and Lowes, I went right to work. Mine are not perfect, but I'm still pleased with them.

I cannot take credit for this brilliant and simple idea. For complete directions, please visit Traci's blog HERE.

Opinions please...

I made some chocolate covered pretzels for my neighbor's birthday yesterday and added a label, ribbon and scrapbook paper to embellish them. This picture does not do justice to them, but the lighting in my kitchen isn't very good and I was having trouble getting a good photo.

I have a question for everyone. How much do you think I could sell boxes of these for around the holidays? Each box would contain one dozen hand dipped pretzels and be decorated for the appropriate holiday. I dipped thousands of pretzels last year to give away as holiday gifts and really enjoy doing it. I'm wondering if this hobby could be turned into a little profit around the holidays.

I appreciate you taking the time to give me your honest feedback on this subject. Hope you're enjoying the weekend with your families.
