Holiday Gift Ideas

In case you’re not like my college BFF Melita, who had all her holiday gifts bought and wrapped by Thanksgiving Day, here are a few of my favorite things to give our gal pals this holiday season. And they’re all from/feature women here in Austin!

    Hi Ann, I surprised to see my name here. We went shopping this weekend for fun! And, enjoyed browsing, people watching, & finding stuff we didn’t know we needed & one item we’ve been looking for! Harry & David’s carries Cinnamon Maple Syrup & we had it Sunday on pancakes. Yes, you could sprinkle cinnamon but it’s not the same! I got the last Monet weekly planner/calendar which is a sign that I need to focus on my Monet needlepoint in 2011 & that’s my mantra for 2011 – FOCUS, recommit to deliverables. I’m glad I saved your 8/11/09 email. And, that’s why I came to your website tonight. To declare my intentions to FOCUS! And, to thank my BFF, Ann, for your wonderful insights & encouragement. Best wishes for a Happy, Healthy Holiday

    You’ve got to watch what you share online–it’s fair game for bloggers needing good ideas! Well, you know I heartily endorse FOCUS. I still pull out my mantra: “One thing at a time.” Been using that one a lot during the holiday season. Monet! One of my life’s best experiences was visiting Giverny. I have a tiny little paper version of the house (alas, not the gardens) here in my studio. Hugs and best wishes!

    Hi Ann,
    Just wanted to “stop by” to wish you a Merry Christmas. Was missing you 🙂 and loved seeing your smiling face from a few years ago on your Christmas card. Here’s to a prosperous New Year. I intend to make it so! Thank you for all you have done to help.
    Warmly,
    Gin

    I *know* you will make it so, Gin! Been thinking about you. Any word from Hillel? And now on to make blueberry muffins.
    Merry Christmas!
    Ann

    Last I heard, he’d start on it “right after Christmas.” I’m ready! Will let you know… all is moving along incredibly well… scary… And now, a grand New Year to you!
