I’m glad the weekend is here, but it is going to be a busy one for us. We have a dance recital tonight and a piano recital tomorrow morning, lots of projects to wrap up, and I think it is time to start thinking about a bit of shopping. And speaking of shopping, what a change shopping has undergone in the last decade! On-line shopping has opened up a whole new world of products and convenience.
I still remember the first time that I ordered a majority of Christmas gifts on-line. I had four little girls and we lived in a small mountain town that was at least 30 mins. away from any kind of shopping. It was so lovely to send my older two girls to school, light a fire, and let my 2 year-old play while I held my baby and shopped in my PJs. A lot of people thought we were crazy then, to be sharing our card numbers all over the world, but we have yet to encounter a problem with fraud or theft. Now that my girls are older, it is much easier for me to shop, but I still prefer shopping from home, and sometimes in my PJs.
So in recognition of the wonderful change in shopping, these weekend changes are all about on-line shopping….Great Gift Lists from some Great Bloggers:
-Joanne Goddard’s gift lists for Moms, Dads, sisters, brothers…and more to come.
-Jordan Ferney’s lists…10 Experiences to Give and 10 Things to Give.
-Design Sponge’s lists…so many! Here are a few of my favorites, Gift Guide for DIY Lovers, Ginny’s Homebody Holidays, and $25 and Under.
-Kirtsy’s DIY Stocking Stuffers.
-Creature Comfort’s Gifted Magazine.
Have a great weekend. I hope it is full of lovely changes.
