Two Shades of Pink My gorgeous new friend, Jessica, has an amazing story of her journey to motherhood, and daily chats about her life in the trenches. You'll laugh out loud, and sometimes cry as you read; I love her perspective on life!!
Mom2Drew My incredibly sweet friend Jenny writes about life with her little boy (who is also incredibly sweet and very cute!). A totally different perspective than those of us with girls, although she does have a baby girl on the way! I always find her posts encouraging. I know you will too.

Bring the Rain For those of you who have ever lost a child, or know someone who has, this blog is incredible. Having lost four babies myself, giving birth to one and knowing her for a brief four hours before she died, I can tell you every sentiment, every feeling, every sentence is absolutely true. From mourning to dancing, this blog will completely bless you.
There's giving cookies, and then there's giving cookies. Adding that special touch that takes it from a sweet gift to a swweeet gift. That's what Shannon did when she ordered cookies for her girls soccer team. Yesterday was the first game, a great time to give the girls a special treat. She took it to the next level and had the cookies personalized with the team name and colors. My guess is she'll be the favorite coach for sure. Here's to a winning season, girls!
We don't get into a lot of jewelry selling here at Kookie Krums, but these bracelets are one of our most popular gift items. Two styles to choose from, with verses and quotes that will share your faith, inspire, and encourage, every time you slip them on your wrist! You'll want one for you, and for a friend!!
Speaking of great jewelry, I'll have to get a picture of the necklace my hubby gave me for Christmas. It is completely FABulous!!
These precious reinder are a new find this year. Aren't they adorable?! Can't you just picture them prancing down the runner on your holiday table, or dancing across your mantle above the fireplace?! I can see them becoming place card holders, or even peeking out from among the branches on your tree. Envision a row of them leading a beautiful sleigh in the middle of your table!! Very versatile, where do you picture these reindeer in your home?!
My absolute favorite ornament of the season. And with all new styles and designs, it's hard to pick a favorite. These fantastic ornaments are so reasonably priced, you can tie them on to every gift for an extra special addition!!
Growing up, we had a few family members that would always send me and my siblings an ornament every year for Christmas. While we didn't always think it was so great when we were young, I was thrilled when I moved out and was able to fully decorate my first Christmas tree with all of the ornaments I had received over the years.
I'm continuing the tradition with my daughters, picking out a special ornament each year for them. Someday when they have their own tree (gasp), they'll have years of memories to decorate it with. What's your special tradition??
A special water bottle just for your pet. Who would have thought?! These super fun water bottles were the hit of the festival in downtown Dunedin last weekend. Our little town is such an animal friendly place, and during the festivals people bring their dogs (and parrots, and geese, no lie) to walk around and enjoy the day. People and pets were going crazy over these water bottles!!
Stainless steel, with a little roller ball inside. So when the dog licks the roller ball, the water comes out. Ingenious, right? No more carrying the water bottle with the little dish that you have to find a place to set down so Rover can take his time having a drink of water and you have to wait for him to finish all of it because you don't want to waste the $2 water you just bought for your dog. With these, you can fill it up at home, and he can drink how much he wants when he wants it. And it stays cool all day.
Perfect stocking stuffer for the season, if you're like us and include your precious pooch in the festivities!!
I just want to gobble up these adorable turkeys from Ganz. Yes, pun was intended, sometimes you just have to do it!! They look like delicious cupcakes, but they are actually little trinket boxes. A fun way to trade names on Thanksgiving for Christmas gift exchanges, a great addition to your Thanksgiving table, and precious for place holders. It would also make a perfect little container for holding small gratitudes that you could share during family time. So many options!
The Kelly Rae Roberts collection from Demdaco is absolutely breathtaking. A very talented artist, Kelly Rae will inspire you with her precious designs. Perfect for pre-teen, teenage, and young adult women, these beautiful pictures with equally beautiful messages will bless your heart.
I love adding a little tie-on when I give a gift. I think it just completes the gift. I have the best time hunting for the perfect little addition that is a gift all in itself. And that's exactly what I've found in these mini plaques from Curly Girl Designs.
Sweet, fun, whimsical sayings make these a great add-on to any gift. I think it's so thoughtful to give a gift that has that little something extra to make it unique, and I think these fit the bill perfectly. Sold for only $4.95 each, these are also great on their own as gifts for secret sisters, prayer partners, or to slip into a card to make someone smile. And as a wonderful addition to cookies, they combine a delicious gift with a perfect keepsake.
If you've never thought of adding a tie-on to a gift, give it a shot. You'll be amazed at what it adds to the entire package!!

You're still going to see cookies today, but the container is what I've fallen in love with. Peri Woltjer with Out of My Mind Designs was inspired by the screen doors common to homes in the midwest. She creates items out of metal screen, then paints whimsical designs on them. The results are amazing! Unique designs, and stiff, demensional pieces make this collection a must-have. And . . . skip this sentence if you don't like spoilers . . . just wait till you see what's in store for Christmas from this line!!
