Connecting the Dots

As soon as Halloween is over, I start to panic!   Holiday shopping is upon us-the horror! lol
This year I think I'm safe to share, come closer, so I can whisper... "I am going with themes for my gifts."   Those in my immediate circle, family I mean will have a theme.  My daughter has been swooning over polka dots, since spring.  In her school photo, she is wearing a Royal Blue top with white Polka Dots. I did notice a watch I found, at the thrift shop has been missing, since  I purchased it.  It has Polka Dots on it...lol.   I also love these cheery dots. I think 'Welcome spring', when I see them.  This year,  they are trending into the fall n' autumn fashions.   I am thrilled...

My daughter doesn't read my blog, unless it is in regards to her.  I ask her permission before I post something about her, let her read it and then hit publish. She knew about the PicMonkey photos, before I posted them.  I have enough drama...


 I created this Mood Board over at SampleBoard, so fun and it might even help you with your Christmas shopping.  No, she isn't getting all of this, but it inspires me to be on the look out for ideas.
So far I did find these items:


I can't find the original blouse I ordered, but it does have Polka dots.  Maybe I should be cautious, just in case!  I have been known to peek, lol.  It might be genetic. I may have passed this elf madnes on to her-yikes~    I found this blouse at JCP and these Metallic tights.




Etsy also has some unique ideas...

What teen wouldn't like a personalized iPhone case ;D   

The name of the shop is Vintage and Retro iPhone Cases & More. The owner is Arete. 

Check this one out...


OR

So fun....

More ideas, that may help you with your shopping list...


Are these really cool Vinyl dots...Wall Sticker Art, is what I meant~

Oh, not just cool Polka Dots, but many ideas...




 Many options and even ideas for kid's rooms! 
The shop is called Urban Walls!


Are you gearing up for the holidays?   Are you an early shopping?  Do you shop with a theme in mind?   I think this will make it easier for me this year.  So far for son...it is geek gear and Dr. Who!
Maybe I will do a Dr. Who Mood Board...

You really need that on your wall!
The space case for the iPhone is cool. Almost makes me want to get one.
I have purchased zero Christmas gifts so far. Time to get cracking!

ACK! You're stressing me out! Holidays already!? I think somehow years of poverty have served me well. For so long we couldn't do much, so we really cut down on a lot of it. For me, November is NaNoWriMo and I do Christmas in December. (then again, I'm not the cook for Thanksgiving)

Hart-Don't panic...I am just working on ideas! I have two things for each kid! It might be a BREAKING BAD Christmas,lol. Hubby n' I don't exchange-we do things throughout the year. I even shop at the thrift shop...for baskets and stuff to put gifts in! I'm a wish hunter first, bargain hunter second...?! Maybe that is the other way around. I might just go to Lowe's and hoard the gift cards! It gets harder every year!
How is NaNoWriMo going?! I should do it! I have this class(homework)...no more classes or wire hangers, lol!

Alex-Thank you ;D
I know right...I gotta go tell Stephen and MPax, lol. I know, right... I so hate crowded stores! I am a happy shopper, when I can wear slippers, drink Hot Chocolate and shop online! I even play Christmas music~

Loving that 'write your own story' case and the wall polka dots..thanks for some inspiration..just filling my tank!
Ellie Garratt said…
Wow. I love the themes you are going with and the iPhone cases are stunning. I might have to get one of those!

I might be mad but I started my Christmas shopping the same day I started NaNoWriMo. Has to be done.

I can't believe it's already time to think about Christmas. But on the other hand I hate shopping late or biting my nails waiting for things to come from on-line at the last minute so I'd better make a start.

We are doing gift certificates for people outside our household. Quick, easy, and painless shopping.

I like the polka dot idea! I lust for the polka dot Converse shoes (they look like Converse). I think it makes shopping a bit easier if you have a particular theme. But I haven't thought at all about shopping for Christmas yet!
Ella said…
Cool right~ Off to walk the hound and I'll be back to comment
Ella said…
Hi Mary-Thank you! Yes, I am pretty sure those are Converse sneakers :D
I do think it helps~ I over heard kids my son's age in the coffee line, they all agreed gift cards rock! ;D I have done that for college aged son! Gift cards to grab a sandwich, coffee, etc. He loved it~

Stephen Tremp-You are very wise ;D
Most people like them! I know I'm thrilled with one to a book store~

Hi John-Hope you are well~ I'll be by soon! Yes, I know I do well, then think I'm done and I'm not. I try to be ready for those surprise gifts...augh! I'm tucking wine, chocolates and gift cards in my closet. I also bake a lot of cookies... Yes, tis almost time! Don't panic yet...it's early :D

Ellie-I know right! No, you are smart~ :D I want one, too~ Thanks!

Naturally Carol-You are welcome! :D
It is always fun to come up with and share ideas! Now, I want those Converse Polka dot sneakers, an iPhone space case and some vinyl for my walls, lol.

Inky-I love it! Your blog looks great~ :D I feel honored-thank you! Wow, loving all your informative posts~ And the kindle book...thank you!!!

Sandra-Thank you! So fun you stopped by~ I love your Halloween post! You know how to tell a wonderful visual story! <3 it :D

If your personalized phone case is destined for a mother or grand-mother, the number one choice for customization is a photo of their children or grand-children. This is also a popular design choice for fathers and grand-fathers.
