I happen to be a DIYer and have found that most DIYers love colors, textures and the creativity involved with making something or putting something together-everything from home décor to fashion. There has never been so much activity around creative crafting and ETSY has a lot to do with enabling creative spirits to share and sell their work. ETSY has grown so much that it now represents thousands of DIYers around the world as creative enthusiasts share their love of handmade items. That creative spirit spills over into fashion as most DIYers show their one-of-a-kind personality through their fun wardrobe, combining textures, colors and patterns in unique ways.
Let There Be Music!
As much as I love holiday music and have it playing non-stop in my car starting the day after Thanksgiving, I don’t need to hear another carol until the same time next year.
What Your Socks Say About You…..
We love men’s socks—stripe socks, beer socks, flag socks—all kinds of fun novelty socks! You just have to smile when you see a man in fun socks. And don’t forget, just like your tie tells a story about you, so do your socks!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the whole reason for the day. I love seeing my family… I love the chaos… and I love the smells of cinnamon, spice and everything nice that comes out of the kitchen.
What is a Picnic?
I have great memories of going on picnics with my family as a child. Every family brought their favorite food lovingly made from scratch and we would talk, eat, play games and throw rocks in the river. Mom would spray my ankles with bug spray and I would wear shoes and socks to keep away the chiggers. Those were the days.
You’re just in time to get our horseshoe socks for good luck!
Friday the 13th is supposed to be a day of bad luck. This year, you need to pay particular attention since there are three Friday the 13th in 2012. Good news, if you are reading this you already survived Friday the 13th in January but why take a chance?
There are two more in 2012; April 13 and July 13.
If you are wearing lucky horseshoe socks, you can hopefully (and probably) defy the odds. (more…)
“What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?”
There is an expectation that we should go out, get festive, and ring in the New Year with fireworks, dancing and partying. I admit I have enjoyed this monumental event of kissing at midnight, confetti, champagne, and celebrating long into the next day. But these last few years, by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, I do not want to plan another thing, eat more food or drink more wine. I have come to enjoy the quiet that follows the rush of Christmas and I guess I would rather just merge into next year rather that do a “party plunge.” I am grateful for good health, a wonderful family, and great friends and prefer to just relax and reflect on the past year.
I have finally discovered the perfect gift for teenage girls. SOCKS! I have 4 nieces in all parts of the country that are each uniquely different but have one thing in common—they all love socks! I am so excited! Their tastes may change like the wind but at least with socks, they can combine them with outfits that I would never have imagined.
With the helpful advice of one of the teen nieces, we came up with a list of favs. There were so many choices so have fun and pick your favorites!
1 – Bones and Roses Style 101KH
2 – Two By Fours-All 4 styles
3 – Cowboy Boots 6499
4- Pink Fuzzy Toe socks PFF
5 – Any of our Slipper socks SS103
6 – Alligator 3D Socks 3D109
7 – Heavy Cable Leg Warmers LW 100 Charcoal
8 – Black or Pink Chenille Fingerless Gloves
9 – Argyle Thigh Highs OTK Black
10 – High Top Sneaker Socks 6498 all colors
These are just a few examples but with socks, leg warmers and fingerless gloves, they are easy to buy, send, and they fit!
If you are still fearful of trying to guess the taste of the teens, give a gift certificate. I promise you they will find many things that they will love. And most of all, they will love you for figuring out that socks are awesome!
It’s that time of year when we love to acknowledge our co-workers, friends, and family but we want something personal, inexpensive, unique, and fun. VOILA! The perfect gift is a fun pair of novelty socks! With over 200 choices, certainly you will find something for everyone on your list.
…..And they are under $10!
Even better…$6 a pair when you buy 3 pairs!
Why not start a tradition and give all of your family members socks in their holiday stockings that fit their personality?! I used to give crazy boxer shorts to my boys and now I give them fun socks. They love it!
Everyone will thank you for a gift that fits their feet and their personality, and is fun and functional.
Ideas for HIM:
We all know guys can sometimes be difficult to buy for. Even they admit it. If it’s not technology, a new car, or tickets to a big game, then the list gets short quickly. So here are a few stocking stuffer ideas to give with the socks if you want to take it another step:
Poker socks and poker chips
Beer socks and his favorite brew
High top sneaker socks and a basketball
Music socks and his favorite music CD
Flame socks and some hot, spicy BBQ sauce
Chili peppers socks and some chips and salsa
Golf socks and some favorite golf balls
Cowboy boot socks and beef jerky
