She sent me the cutest little winter-in-a-jar gift,
complete with jingle bells.

  14. Amy idea of stress-buster in a box is great! I told my colleagues in the room as a gift for Christmas.
    Oh, I could use such case, especially after this week's work. Unfortunately, it is so strange regularity that I really I see in my work - in the period before Christmas is increased aggression in people, every day I have a few interventions related to domestic violence. This is a very serious problem.
    Yours very warm

  26. Well, I thought I was already following your blog, but apparently was not. So now I am (and also following on Pinterest). What a lovely gift! I start stressing out about the holidays mid-October every year, mainly because of all of the things I must finish at work before the end of the year (especially if I want to take time off, which, of course, I always do). And at the same time, I want to be festive and cozy and decorate my house from top to bottom, bake, sit in front of a roaring fire with hot cocoa, and do all those other fun holiday activities. So, all in all, it ends up being a very stressful time. Thanks for making your box of stress-busting goodies available! Melissa at melddc2@gmail.com
