Even if I haven’t sent out my Christmas cards, nor considered shopping for gifts for the immediate family, or even have a clue as to what the dinner menu would entail for Christmas eve because I’ve been too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic for the past year, perhaps like most of us and well, here we are…near the last hours (if you will) in getting it all done. So, here’s what’s on the agenda today. Gifts, fun ones, practical ones and hopefully one the receiver will not re-gift. Qualifier – everyone I know is either a chef, loves to travel …

The Art of Crafting

My favorite of all is actually Football season in October. Because while my household enjoys sitting around in the family room, watching game after game the entire day on Sunday, I cuddle with my dog on the bed, plug-in my music and begin drafting up my plans for crafting something for the holidays to giveaway right here on RS&S, and even for gift exchange at work and among friends.
