fantastic features & party faves!! 12.23.12

It’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas over at the {what’s shakin’ link party} #40!!!  Since we are only TWO days away from the BIG day … how about some features for last minute holiday gifts, decorations and crafty activities that are totally doable?!

I love this Sleepy Saturday morning pancake breakfast gift basket shared by Stephanie over at Sweet Boutique … who wouldn’t love a yummy, thoughtful gift?

Run to the dollar store and pick up a basic wooden box and transform it into this gorgeous monogrammed jewelry box!  Full tutorial over at DIY Village!

Need a last minute sweet for a party or neighbor gifts?  Make a batch of these easy cake mix sugar cookies from Crazy for Crust!

And these triple chocolate mint pudding mix cookies from Sweet Bella Roos!  Chocolate and mint are the perfect Christmas combo!!

Or maybe your neighbors would enjoy Christmas margaritas?!  Smart! School House made these cute little gifts and shares how to make that super cute colored rim salt!

These wood slice snowman ornaments are the perfect quick craft to make with the kids!  Go say hi to Courtenay at The Creek Line House and check out her tutorial!

There is still plenty of time for you to link up whatever you have been working on … the party is still in full swing!
