A Fun and Easy Gift Suitable for a White Elephant Exchange or a Bridal Shower Party Favor.
December 18th, 2012
So I recently got invited to a small company Christmas party. I pulled up the Evite the day before just to double-check the time and suddenly saw that I need to bring a White Elephant gift. "OH MY GOODNESS, how did I miss that?"
To make it worse, the invite did not say whether or not the gift should be funny, witty, used or how much the value should be. I panicked for a second thinking, "How am I going to pull something together in a day especially with no gift guidelines?"
I started thinking and remembered a great bridal shower favor idea I saw at a friend’s house. It was a small decorated gift bag with a tag that said:
"Lots of hugs and kisses,
The bag contained Hersey Hugs and Kisses, a bag of flower seeds and a lotto ticket. Who doesn’t like getting a lotto ticket? This was such a creative and easy idea, and I figured could put a Christmas twist on it. Next thing you know, I created a Christmas bag with tag on it that said:
"Wishing you a Christmas
Inside the bag I put a bag of Hersey Hugs for love, a Starbucks gift card for energy and lotto tickets for good fortune. This was easy and affordable! I picked everything up at my local grocery store. And it was a big hit at the party. Consider this idea when you are faced with getting a White Elephant gift or hosting a bridal shower!
Piece by Piece
October 29th, 2012
I thought I had to have it all planned out perfectly. But what I learned is that each piece of the puzzle fell into place exactly when it needed to. I realized that for my entire life, I had tried to fit the pieces together how I thought they should go, not necessarily how I wanted them to go. I played sports, graduated from high school and then from college. Then I started working my way up the corporate ladder. One day while sitting in my cubicle, I realized there were so many other things I would rather be doing. I want to enjoy life, help other people and be passionate about my career.
Because my passion is helping other women be successful at the things they love to do, the pieces began to fall into place for Londyn Kate. But the most important piece of Londyn Kate is the women I hope will visit and share on the site. Without women to buy and sell handmade items there is no Londyn Kate. As much as I’ve thought about this important piece of the puzzle (How will we get women to participate? Will they like the site? Will they tell their friends?), I remind myself that it will fall into place just like the others. I hope you will help complete this puzzle. I look forward to hearing from you!
