Last-minute holiday helpers, plus GRAND Social No. 236 link party for grandparents

Last-minute holiday helpers

Wow! Is anyone else as flabbergasted as I am that it's less than a week until Christmas? How. Did. That. Happen?

Are you ready? Or do you still need a few things?

Here are a few holiday helpers to perhaps fill one of the needs remaining on your to-do list (click each graphic to access the full post).

Need another cookie?

spritz cookies 

 

Need a holiday breakfast?

breakfast pizza 

 

Need a hostess or Secret Santa gift?

DIY coffee hand scrub 

 

Need one more gift for a favorite kiddo (and have about an hour to do some simple sewing)?

DIY pillow chaise for kids 

I hope those helped!

GRAND Social No. 236

I'm delighted you've found the time to join this week's GRAND Social link party just for grandparents. Thank you for being here!

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

<div style="text-align: center;"><span class="full-image-inline ssNonEditable"><img src="/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1403499127249" alt="" /></span></div>

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
