Week 18: Marisa Does Errands

Today was a bit of a holiday catch up day, which was actually fun, albeit full of traffic and not-so-friendly parking lot shoppers and horn-honking enthusiasts out and about!! It started off at Starbucks with a Venti drip.

Warm and delicious!

Because I was going to be pulling a decently extended errand day, I treated myself to a hot beverage to tote along with me and it hung out close by in my vehicle's cup holder.

I picked up a few last minute holiday gifts (ones that I didn't DIY myself or snag on etsy), finally got to the post office, went to Trader Joe's and got things that were not just ingredients solely used for holiday party recipes (because I can't really eat mushroom bites and fondue for lunch and dinner...or can I??), baked cookies for holiday prezzies...


...and continued on my holiday cards!

Cards & Sharpies!

A deep dent was made, but there's still more to go.  I'll be chipping away little by little this week!

While home, I had on a few episodes of Martha Bakes on in the background and I became obsessed with the delish pizza episode...

Focaccia flatbread!

Oh my goodness, I wanted to make this, however six dozen cookies were on the agenda.  I totally felt like a Mini-Martha :)

Speaking of Martha, today's giveaway is one she'd approve of that will get the crafty, scrapbooking juices flowing!

Included is a Martha Stewart Crafts birthday candle craft punch and assorted mat pads, a pair of Allary scissors, and scrapbooking materials by the amazing Amy Tangerine for American Crafts including a day book, full of assorted pages to fill as well as sticky embellishments! (My favorite is the little sewing machine.)  These will have you reeling in some scrapbook magic!
