Posts Tagged ‘36th Avenue’

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and here at Casa Santillan that means we start thinking seriously about gifts. My husband comes from a large family (6 kids) with several nieces and nephews and their spouses (16 people) and some of those nieces and nephews have children of their own (10 more kids) add my husband’s parents to the mix and you have a great reason to make gifts whenever possible.

We have tried in the past to give to just the kids, but that still gives us about 15 or 16 people to buy for. So when resources are low, it’s time to get creative.

I have been searching the web for some great ideas and thought I would pass those sites on to our readers.

Here are a few sites I have been checking out:

There are so many great sites out there, I could go on for days. If you have any great craft sites you’d like to share please pass them on. I am still looking for a few more ideas.

Happy Crafting,

It was time for a little spring cleaning here on the Sidewalk. Since we tend to procrastinate just a wee bit, it seems appropriate that we finally cleaned out our “Blogs We Love” section on the last week of June. We have added a few new blogs on our list that you might want to check out:

DEBtastic Reads! is Debbi Michiko Florence’s blog featuring author interviews and book buzz for middle grade and young adult books. Deb’s book suggestions always have one or two that I want to add to my TBR pile.

36th Avenue is a great craft site by Desirée.  The heart behind 36th Avenue is a mamá X 4, a thrifty shopper, a fabric lover,a paint brush best friend and a never ending makeover believer. Be sure to check out her 25 gifts under $5 for some great gift ideas.

McGyver meets Martha. Dammit, Minnie is the brainchild of my very own cousin Beth. If you’re looking for some craft ideas, gardening tips and a little bit of fun, be sure to check out this site.

So now it’s your turn. Do you have any new blogs you’d like to share? I’d love to check them out.
