Happy Christmas

It's early, I know. I stayed up til 2 last night working on Christmas presents for the girls in my family.

I love personal gifts. I hate gift cards and canned gifts. I was never so disgusted at Christmas as I was the first year I was in Germany. I stood in line to buy local currency at the bank, I hurried downtown to shop before the stores closed at noon on Saturday, I stood in line to mail gifts. We got a Hickory Farms gift box. Blah.

I work hard to find just the right thing. The digital age offers a lot of possibilities....especially for those 20 somethings. A new copy of Oprah came in yesterday, and the press for Clinique Happy caught my eye. You can upload a photo and put it on a bottle! How cool is that?

I used Grandma and DGD photos. I should have them in two weeks. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Very cool, Bets. That was my sister's favorite perfume. She would have loved that.

I love how you can personalize the bottle with a photo, very cool. When I first read your post, I thought you were already wrapping your gifts, lol. I'm still lining up my ducks for Christmas.

Whoops, blogger error, let's try this again.

I love how you can personalize the bottle with a photo, very cool. When I read the first sentence in your post, I thought you said you were already wrapping your Christmas gifts, lol.
