Spread some joy (and sanity) this Holiday season

I try hard to be prepared (it doesn't always happen, but I try) and I love having small gifts ready to go for unexpected guests, neighbors or bored kids at a restaurant. Especially during the holidays! That's why I love these small, ready to go gifts with fun labels.

I made up a couple of fun printables to make it even easier for you to have small gifts at the ready. Or you could plan a whole day of leaving these fun gifts around town for people to find. Wouldn't it put a smile on your kids' face to find one of these lying around?!

Hurricane Sandy

I was thinking about this a lot over the weekend as we were going about our normal lives. How selfish I felt I was being. Here I am going about my life in our 90 degree weather and there are people sick, homeless, cold, hungry... I've seen a lot of companies and tv stations urging for donations to the Red Cross but I wondered if such a large corporation could possibly help everyone fast enough - so much red tape (no pun intended) then I came across this heart wrenching blog post from Jenna at Sweet Fine Day

It made me realize how much goes completely unknown to most of us. How much suffering and saddness something like this brings. 

Jenna put up a great list of local charities that are directly helping hurricane victims in NY right now.

PLEASE if you are on the East Coast and know or have read blog posts like these from different areas let us know in the comments, I'm sure there is a great number of these small, reputable organizations helping out right now. It's always hard being so far away and wanting to give to an honest and good organization so any recommendations we can get help a lot!

Are you doing anything to help? We'd love ideas!
