Five PSAs to Equip Your Holiday Season

Below are my top five PSAs (public service announcements) about my go-tos for gift giving season.

Give Personal Blurb Books this Christmas
If you have a digital camera-whether it's your smart phone or your DSLR-chances are you have a lot of wonderful photos of the people you love. And if you are anything like me, they are maxing out the space on your computer and not doing much else.

Now, imagine those photos in a book, given as a gift. Wouldn't you look like the best most thoughtful person ever? Blurb makes it easy with custom books that you can easily personalize. Plus, the upload process is simple. You can use your Facebook photos, Instagram photos (this is what I do!) or photos on your computer. You can design your own book, or have it automagically created with the Blurb Designer Collection templates. You can make a book in about ten minutes, and they start at just $12.99. A real book.

Plus, you can get 30% off from now through 11/30 with the code: SAVE30

Shop Umba
Stock your gift closet with hostess gifts that are handmade by talented artists from around the world. As an Umbassador, I can attest to the quality of the goods sourced. The best smelling candles imaginable (seriously!) darling measuring spoons and coffee scoops, shop Umba to be equipped with the best hostess gifts this party season.

Hint: next week (11/29-12/2 mark your calendars) all winter knit accessories will be 15% off with code: GETCOZY15

My Etsy Shop
Clearing house for a new collection launching early 2014, all items in my shop are 25% off, including already reduced market lists. Use code: BLOGLOVE25 for the discount through Tuesday (11/26) -- just in time to ship before Thanksgiving.

Artist Crush: Michelle Armas
I am seriously crushing this artist and her work seems to be popping up everywhere, even One Kings Lane. Her paintings are my favorite and I am squeezing my pennies and crossing my fingers for one of these canvas prints before the sale ends. The colors are bright and cheery and perfect for our guest room/office which has been boasting blank builder beige walls for too long.

#MattieMaeDesigns -- a giveaway!
I am giving away one original Mattie Mae Designs lumbar pillow, measuring 10x17. This is the perfect pillow for your reading chair, a little girls bed, or to send away to a daughter or sister in college. I have one on my ricking chair and another is on its way to Behr's best friend who is currently living overseas with her family. They make perfect gifts! $26 value.

Giveaway open to US and Canadian entries only.
Closes Sunday, December 1 for shipping in time for Christmas.
