Happy Holidays, Ohana Mama! I can’t believe how busy it has been these past few days – but the blogosphere has been buzzing with fun posts, meaningful memories and CONTESTS GALORE! So, the Mom Buzz has still been out and about looking for the latest and greatest of what’s going on in the blogosphere!
Nicole at Juicy Alligator has a DIY on how to make Christmas Cookie Lollipops. C’mon, Santa must get bored with the same ol’ Choco Chip Cookies. Surprise him and the elves with this tasty treat on a stick!
More Fun Than Allowed with Kids also has a fun project – Baking Holiday Ornaments. She provides the recipe, and after baking you can paint, glitter and decorate to your hearts contest! It’s a perfect holiday project!
A blog/Etsy combo I recently discovered was Life of a Bird. Her Etsy shop is Stelabird. I came on to buzz about her Yeti Ornament, which I LOVE! And then I discovered that she is planning on doing a December Give-Away for either a Yeti Plush, Yeti Ornament or Other. She is letting the voters decide, so get your choice in! I voted for the Yeti Plush! By the way, she also has a listing at her shop for a Big Foot Ornament! How cool is that???
Nothing Like It has some totally unique Christmas Ornaments added to her store. I love the Harry Potter and Snow Pirate! And the Gingerbread man with the bite taken out of his head is HILARIOUS! What can I say? There is simply Nothing Like It.
I was visiting Creative Flutter when I saw she was buzzing about a market place, similar to Etsy, but which has some other cool features that Etsy shop owners might want to check out. Since I buzz so much about Etsy shops run by bloggers, I thought many of you might be interested in this other option – so check out Art Fire! And check out Creative Flutter’s shop, called Mazer Design. My favorite item was her Seasons Speaks Bookmarks! What a great gift for an avid reader.
