How was your Turkey Day?! I hope it was lovely – just how you wanted it to be. Whether that meant being with family, having a friendsgiving, or just getting a little extra time without work to download a bit.
We are going to have Thanksgiving tonight, making a duck breast with sauce/gravy (I could take a bath in gravy. Seriously.), German Rotkohl and trying out a new recipe – Ken Oringer’s Corn and Gruyère Mashed Potato Gratin recipe. It looks good, right?
This week was pretty much my basic work week. On Friday, I went to Carrefour (huge grocery store) at Fan (new huge outdoor shopping center) and I couldn’t even find a parking spot thanks to Black Friday. Did y’all do any Black Friday shopping? I’m such a horrible procrastinator, I put the PRO in crasinating. 🙂 And I can’t get my head around buying Christmas presents yet but I’m really really REALLY gonna try my very best to not have to do it all last minute.
But my online sales are starting to do quite decently. Here are a few goodies in my shops for the Christmas season. And remember I sell my designs on lots of different products just click the link to see more.
The Tree Isn’t The Only Thing Getting Lit This Christmas! Pajamas. I have a pair of these myself, super comfy! And it makes me feel okay when I’m on my third glass of wine. Cheers!
Senior Class Of 2019 Christmas Ornament. Do you know someone graduating from high school or university this year? It’s a Christmas ornament so every year they can unpack it to decorate the tree. And think of you!
Isn’t this the cutest? Fleece Navidad Baby Bodysuit. I just love it.
This Don’t Forget To Be Awesome coffee/tea mug is perfect for anyone on your shopping list. It’s inspirational and fun.
Alrighty then! I need to scoot to start making that new recipe. I’ll let you know how it turns out. And I already know the duck and gravy will be perfecto cuz Felix is making that. Have a fabulouso week my friends!
Happy Halloween, Y’all!
This cartoon makes me giggle every.single.time. Even in summer!
Who is Stewart?
Happy Independence Day to all my American readers!
There has been a lot of fighting for doing the right thing in America, keep up the good work. And enjoy your day, the fireworks and be safe! As for me, I will enjoy a hot dog and a bottle of Budweiser. Yes, I can get Bud here in Mallorca!
Happy New Year from Mallorca!!
365 new days, 365 new chances. Make each day count. xo
Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihachten! Feliz Navidad! Joyeux Noël!
Wherever you are in the world, I’m wishing you peace and love. xxoo -k
If you know me then you know that I LOVE Gwen Stefani. And I had to get this Christmas album as soon as I heard about it – which was very early since I follow Gwen on everything possible – facebook, instagram. Yeah, a little obsessed. 🙂 Gwen Stefani You Make It Feel Like Christmas CD is here.
It’s fantastic. It’s got your covers – Santa Baby (her voice was made for this song), Jingle Bells, White Christmas and all these are great. But what really made me love this even more are her own songs – My Gift Is You and Under The Christmas Lights. It’s Gwen’s retro style with a modern Christmas pop twist.
Alright, how has December, Christmas, almost freaking 2018 crept up so silently?! Any of you all prepared? If so, please come over and help me. Please. I will pay you. I just baked cookies. Tempted?
Gonna send out a few Christmas ideas these next few days in case you are like me and um, completely unprepared for Christmas. So keep checking the blog and I hope to have something that tickles your fancy. I absolutely love LOVE this gift. Save the world, you know, is one of my favorite themes. And trees, I love trees. There is this oak tree over one thousand years old close to our home in Germany and I’m always in awe. Plus the 800 year old olive tree in Palma with a witches face.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, clean the water we drink, provide habitat to over 80%+ of the World’s biodiversity, provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people on this planet, provide health in so many ways (1/4 medicines we take come from trees & plants) and trees absorb carbon from our atmosphere.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit charity/reforestation project that plants trees around the world (North America, Asia, Africa, South America and wildfire areas). One dollar = one tree, you choose your area and minimum donation is $12. You can get involved by donating or fund raising or even becoming a tree ambassador. So you can do all that but how does that work with Christmas? For $20 you can have 20 trees planted in the recipient’s name and they also receive a digital tree certificate. And if you spend $50 they will send the certificate in the mail with a t-shirt.
Pretty cool, huh? For your favorite hipsters, tree huggers and all ages. They are so gorgeous. Just like you. Mwuah.
HA! Didn’t I just mention I am the queen of procrastination? Well, here is my king.
Have a great and safe Fourth of July!!
