Little Drummer Boy Gift Tag::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Little-Drummer-Boy-Printable-Gift-Tag

Hello there! I’m Laura from Inspiration for Moms and I am thrilled to be hanging with the Crafting Chicks today! I’m sharing with you an easy gift printable for the theme of twelve drummers drumming. When I think of drummers, I am reminded of one of my favorite Christmas songs…The Little Drummer Boy. So I took that song and combined it with a classic drummer boy silhouette to make some darling gift tags. These tags are a great way to add a little traditional Christmas to your special gifts. And they’re perfect if you’re up at 2 am wrapping those last minute gifts and need some very creative tags. See there, I gotcha covered! To print your own gift tags, just click on the image below and save to your computer. (When you’re ready to print, select 8×10 and two tags should easily fit on one piece of card stock.) If you’re looking for a few more Christmas crafts, my [Read More…]

Redbox Neighbor Gift::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Redbox-Neighbor-Gift

Hey friends and readers of the adorable Crafting Chicks!  I am Pam from Over the Big Moon and I am excited to share with you this Redbox Neighbor Gift Idea!  This idea actually came to me in the early hours of the morning, after being up all night with my daughter.  My poor Dylan girl had been screaming her head off for the previous 5 hours (her ear drum ended up bursting) and I was beyond exhausted and as I laid down I glanced at the Redbox case that was laying on my dresser and *BING* the idea hit me! Both my blog partner, Lisa, and I are busy wives, moms, bloggers, housekeepers, PTA helpers, involved in our churches, taxi drivers, etc and so we LOVE SIMPLE!  But, when the idea is simple, affordable and memorable then we have a win-win-win, which makes us beyond happy!  So, I was super excited a few weeks ago when this idea popped in my [Read More…]

12 Day of Christmas Printables

12-days-of-christmas-printables

A few years ago I shared how our family does the 12 Days of Christmas each year for some neighbors that are elderly and alone for the Holidays. In that post I shared the poems my mom wrote for each package.  But this year I took it up a notch and used Crystal Wilkerson’s Be Merry kit to make some printable tags for you.  I hope you enjoy them.   There are 18 printable tags so you can have some extras or just print out the ones you want.  [wpdm_file id=61] This is a compressed (zipped) file.  Once downloaded, just right click and unzip.

12 Days of Christmas Ideas

deck the halls banner sm

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is the 12 Days of Christmas.  For as long as I can remember, my mom has been making up fun little packages of 12 Days gifts for widows or widowers.  She would drive up to 40 miles to deliver these packages, most the time not even knowing the person who was recieiving them, just finding out that they needed Christmas cheer. We have kind of done this on and off for a few years, but decided to pick this up last year as a family and delivered one bag full of fun gifts to a single lady who doesn’t have family near.  It was so exciting to drop the bag off and run and just know that she was going to have a fun surprise awaiting her each night til Christmas.  This year we are going to deliever to her again and two other elderly couples in our neighborhood.  [Read More…]
