Do you RA(w)K?
Small or big?
Here's my plan. To actively find (at least) one RAK everyday for the month of December. Will I blog about each one...? Probably not. I hope to have some RAK for the bloggy world too... hmm have to get creative about that eh?
Here's one big thing my family is doing this year. We found through our little town an organized program where you 'adopt' a family. You get the clothing sizes and the genders of the family members and maybe some small items on a wish list. You then do the shopping for these items, wrap them up and bring them in for the organization to deliver. Talk about the perfect thing to do with my family this year.
It's been a roller-coaster ride for us this year, nothing awful, ups and downs and lately I'm having a hard time listening to the me me me whines coming from three three three little kids. They will get so much more out of picking out a Christmas for another family, than continually whining and picking out more more more for themselves.
How about something small I'm doing? This might sound evil or selfish but honestly I am working on patience while standing in long lines this year especially when there are *not so smart* people ahead of me or whatever... Sure I'll let someone in line ahead of me and all that... but my big..okay little RAK is to be kind while in line.
And for you?
Some girly shops. Why? Because you RA(w)K.
Lately people have been asking --how can I get a great little 125x125 button, or --I just need an etsy banner or --how about a new holiday themed blogger header? My friends, this is the place. She makes these for $5, and from what I can see she will work up a custom banner in awesome style! FIVE DOLLARS? WhooHoo! Nicole is behind these great graphics!
I met this next shop girly gal via twitter when I noticed her talking about fabric...well of course I had to follow her and find out what/why/how...
Sweet Girl Boutique is her shop, and if you dig a bit you'll find her fabric shop too! Are we in heaven? Girly stuff AND fabric? Yes.
And for the girly girl's stomach? Wow, I'm in heaven looking through these. I think the grapeseed infused oils will make awesome gifts... I'll be keeping one for myself, TYVM.
See Kristie's Wildtree site.
And last... I love Funky Finds. I've had conversations with the girly girl behind this one and she cracks me up and finds awesome items. I see coupons and discounts over there right now... go take a look...
