Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Last Day for 'Green' White Elephant Gift Exchange


Last Day for 'Green' White Elephant Gift Exchange

So here we sit on the cusp of December, the end of fall, winter solstice, the shortest days of the year. A month of celebration, parties, festivals, treats and stress to be sure. Look around take a moment to look at your life in appreciation. You may not be where you want to be but surely there are things to appreciate. I dare you to find them, carry them with you during this holiday season and when you feel this month getting the best of you look at the good things you have, take a deep breath and let some of the demands on your time go. I wish you peace whether you celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Festival of Lights or the Return of Light with winter solstice.

If you have time and inclination I invite you to join a small group of bloggers spreading holiday cheer by passing on a present to someone else. A recycled present if you will. Or a re-gift if you prefer. The Green White Elephant Gift Exchange is a fun way to share without breaking the bank. Please join us as we celebrate a green earth friendly holiday season, re-gifters UNITE! Open to US residents only. To play along simply email me at jinxyjune@gmail.com and answer these questions.

Also I need one or 2 little elves to help me spread the word and don’t tell anyone but elves get extra entries into my 1 year blogoversary chocolate extravaganza giveaway on December 5th, contact me for information. So what are you waiting for, send me info for the exchange and start looking around for something really cool in your house that just isn't you. This is the last day to sign up!
