Hey, happy December! This is the last Kitchen Sink Links for 2013 and beyond. Next year I'll be bringing a weekly link round up and retiring this series. Its been fun, but I have so much I want to share with you more regularly.
December is a time for celebration, for sharing joy, and it is my favorite. I also tend to take on too much, like way too much. I am trying (painfully) to simplify this season. I am failing but I am working to just enjoy this season. Our daughter is so much more aware than she was last year and I am soaking up her joy as she experiences this season for the second time.
Posts may be spotty around here as we move towards the New Year. I'm working on some really exciting things around here for 2014. Those things and all this holiday business are sucking up the time I usually dedicate to blogging. Be sure to follow Stir & Scribble on Facebook and instagram for more frequent updates!
I also love crafting homemade gifts each year for friends and family. I won't reveal what I'm making, but here are a few great ideas:
Joy is making our lips shiny and bright with DIY lip gloss.
Billy is crafting up brown sugar and other wizardry.
You really can't go wrong anytime you combine booze and caramel, a la Tracy's Bourbon Salted Caramels.
And shameless plug: You could make this killer Clemencello that Natty + I created together - she made the sweetest little gift tags for it too!
If you need regular gift ideas - Nicole has an awesome 5 for under $50 series going on over on her blog.
Next week we'll be talking cookies around here, so I'm curious - whats your favorite holiday cookie?
Don't forget to enter the honeycomb studio giveaway before Saturday. We have a brand new giveaway coming next week!
