easy-holiday-gift-DIY-spoons

With holiday break just next week and no gifts for my daughter's teachers, we made a fun DIY gift Thursday night to deliver the last day of school before break. Pregnant, working, and running around like a crazy person with errands during the holiday season didn't permit time to make any of the creative ideas I had been pinning all year.

I received a complimentary CD from Walt Disney Records and Entertainment New Media Network to facilitate this post. All opinions and ideas are my own.

My husband enjoys spy themed thrillers too so the release of the DVD comes at perfect timing the week before Father's Day!

As expected, I always get the same response, "Oh I don't need anything and don't really want anything specific..." And each year he manages to amaze me with his incredibly thoughtful gifts for me on Christmas morning. My schedule in December was very busy and I was running out of time to shop for my husband's gift. With out anything specific in mind this year I turned to the  Best Buy Read More... {Read More...}
