Last week I got invited to a blogging event at 1800 Baskets. As I’m a HOWGE basket lover (and yet have never received one – hint, hint!) I was excited. When they gave us a bunch of stuff to make one with me, the non-crafty one, was a little daunted but check out what I made. Yes, I was a little pleased with myself and this Christmas may attempt a couple more as gifts. (Who am I kidding, my Mum is wrapping all my gifts this year as I’ll be enjoying my new one!!!)
There are a lot of organizations housed under one roof and it was fun to see all the different rows of goodies that go into the baskets from picking special ribbon to selecting just the right cheese (or chocolate covered strawberry!)As a big lover of Fannie May candy, it was fun to sample that too!!!!!
What I loved that they talked about was all the ways to make a home pretty right now and for it not to cost a lot. Like this adorable plate of cookies. They invited Shawn Rabideau and I even impressed him with some of my ideas for bringing the outside on for frugal decor.
