I can’t believe it’s the weekend before Christmas, can you?! The only reason I can tell that a holiday is coming up is that I feel like I can’t finish a single project. I’m being pulled in all different directions as everyone else tries to finish their projects before the holiday.

Lydia at Frugal, Debt Free Lift (speaking my language, amiright?) shares a great DIY Spices and Seasonings tutorial for those people in your life that you really want to shower with gifts, but simply can’t afford it. Or, even if you can, you want something meaningful and handmade. I think I might actually make these for our white elephant gift exchange (shh), not because they’re silly, but because I’ve finished all of my shopping (what?!) and perfectly hit the limit of my Christmas budget.
I was chatting with a gal over at Casper Mattress and she shared that she loves these Surf the Web Saturday posts. Isn’t that the sweetest? She asked me what my favorite Holiday movie is and what my must have items are. I don’t keep a TV in my room but you better believe that my laptop, a cozy blanket, several pillows, chocolate and wine are the perfect bed side accompaniment as I watch The Holiday for the 1,000,000th time. In fact, I think that’s what I’ll do this weekend!
In case you’d like to “join me” Casper created this personalized checklist just for WMSB readers!

I’m thinking of what to do with this series. I really enjoy sharing these links with you guys and I notice that many of you click over and read them. Would anyone be interested in making it a link up? I like that it’s very organic now so I worry about a linkup, but I also really do want to hear from you guys about great posts/articles you’ve found. What do you think?
