Friday Favorites - November 8, 2013

I always love posting Friday Favorites. I love it even more when I get to post on the Friday before a three day weekend, and I especially love it when I'll be getting to spend that three day weekend at home! I have so many things on my to-do list that I'm not sure where to start first...paint the front door (I already have my can of Hosta paint by Martha Stewart ready to go), wrap some of the early Christmas gifts that I've already shopped for, or maybe even get a little more work done toward building the desk in the scrap room.

Knowing me, it'll be a combination of all of the above (and more) in some crazy circle of running between activities. That's just how a roll, yo.

I'm sure I'll squeeze in some crafting, too, and this week's picks are filled with everything from Christmas gift ideas to scrap room organization, so let's dive in!
