The Cure for the Common Monday #22

I can't believe Christmas is just one week away! Because of the holidays, there won't be a link party next Monday. I will be doing features from this party on Wednesday (last minute Christmas ideas).

Stop by and enter my Shabby Apple Jewelry Giveaway.

Before we get to the features, did you know that Monday is the last day to order on Amazon (with standard shipping) and have it arrive before Christmas? Here are a few last minute gift ideas.

The Settlers of Catan - This is my favorite game of all time. Seriously it is amazing. It is a strategy game for 3-4 players (you can get an expansion pack for more players).

Kindle Fire - (You want an iPad but you don't want to spend $500+? The Kindle Fire is only $199.00 - Barnes and Noble also has a Nook that is very similar.)

Fisher Price Wheelies Rampway - We got this for Lyla's first birthday a few weeks ago (it says 18 months +) and she LOVES it. She laughs as the cars fly down the ramp and has starting experimenting by putting all of her toys down the slides. It is just about as tall as she is, which is very exciting for a young toddler.)

Now onto the party.


1.  Homemade Marzipan from {Nifty Thrifty Things}

2. Stocking Holders from Southern Lovely

3. Coiled Paper Ornaments from Saved by Love Creations

4. Glass Christmas Light Gift from The Bean Sprout Notes

5. Felt Rose Wreath from A Fish Who Likes Flowers

6. Quick Christmas Towel Gifts from Michelle Paige
