Do you follow @sallysbakeblog?! I recently stumbled onto her feed and now my Christmas cookie list is so unrealistically long it's not even funnyπŸ™ˆ I thought I'd share her account with you guys in case you're looking for some holiday baking inspiration - she has so many recipes I want to try! I also have A LOT of recipes pinned to my Pinterest 'bake' board that are old favorites & new ones to try as well - you can find me there as @raisinguprubies too!
Tomorrow night my Etsy shop will close for the holidays and then beyond that for some time - I'm excited to take time to rest, spend extra time caring for my home and reevaluate some goals & plans - I'm hoping next year will look different for my little business but I'm not sure what that is yet ❀️ Thankyou for shopping small with me this Christmas and THIS YEAR! I appreciate all your love and support - use the code FREESHIPCHRISTMAS for free shipping on any purchase over $20 until the shop closes Monday night! #shopsmallbusiness #buyhandmade #shopsmall #etsy #etsygifts
Is it Friday already?? Gosh this week was just nuts and crazy busy and I don't know about you guys but I'm runnin' on no sleep cookies for breakfast dry shampoo but we made it right? Jumping in for #fridayintroductions and saying hello to new faces here... Thankyou for following along with me, you guys are the number one reason why I'm here πŸ’™ hi I'm Jaime πŸ–οΈ if you're wondering about my faith there's no religion here just a relationship with Jesus. Psalm 139 was my #gamechanger at 24 years old when I was questioning all the things. I'm a #leowife and mama to two girls first - I'm a small handmade business owner second. I started #raisinguprubies almost 8 years ago - it's alot of hard work and hustle but it's a #dreamjob. Since we're all in a holiday hype my favorite things about Christmas are :: Home Alone, Carol of the Bells, the Hallmark channel, driving around neighborhoods with hubs & the girls talking about which houses have the best lights πŸ˜πŸ’‘ and Christmas COOKIES. not just some Christmas cookies ALL THE CHRISTMAS COOKIES. Sorry about the shouty caps but I love cookies ❀️ what are your Christmas favorites?! Tell me!!‡️
Custom orders are heading out of the studio today - sending them off with lots of love since I don't normally take on too many ❀️ have to say though, stuffing candy in your packages is my favorite part πŸ˜‰πŸ­πŸ¬πŸ« the shop closes Monday & only 18 days until Christmas! Can you believe it? #etsy #etsygifts #shopsmallbusiness #buyhandmade
It was snowing here today❄️but if it isn't where you live and you still want to tuck some snowmen into your little girl's stockings - these hair ties, necklaces and lots of other cute stocking stuffers will be available over in our kids shop @raisinguprubieskids tonight at 8pm Eastern β˜ƒοΈβ€οΈβ˜ƒοΈβ€οΈβ˜ƒοΈ happy Christmas shopping! #raisinguprubieskids
Giving and surprising people with presents is probably my favorite thing about Christmas - it's my love language! Gift giving doesn't have to be complicated or expensive - it can just be a little extra something that shows someone you went out of your way to think of them 🎁 Here's a fun & easy gift idea ➑️ collect a few mugs during your shopping travels (Marshalls TJ Maxx or HomeGoods are my go-to places - they are all under $5 + always cute!) fill them with fancy Christmas chocolates or hot cocoa packets & candy canes then tie a big pretty bow on the handle with jingle bells or ornaments - and that's it! Hand them out as is and your girlfriends teachers bus drivers mail carriers even doctors & dentists? will love these because deep down everyone wants to feel appreciated! β˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•β€οΈβ˜•
Throwin' it back to last year's Christmas cookies for #nationalcookiedayπŸŽ„I feel like if there's a holiday that endorses cookies as a main course (ie. breakfast) then I'm like a million times + πŸ’―% on. board. 
Like completely.
I'm all in.
I mean really. Take your cakes and your ice creams your pies and your candy bars and just give me a cookie.
So then every year because of this, my Christmas cookie list gets longer & longer - cutouts, gingerbread, snowballs, fudge, spritz, chocolate crinkles and on and on and onnnnnnn............✏️ What's on your cookie lists? Tell me so I can further overcommit to my unrealistic baking plans please. Thanks.πŸ™ˆ #becausecookies
Happy new week everyone β€οΈβ˜• just a reminder that I'll be closing up shop in one week for the rest of the year and some time after that too - so be sure to empty those shopping carts before it's too late! I'll be shipping orders all week!

Sometimes were are so eager to get the job done that we miss the beautiful mess in the process that gets us there πŸ’–πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ the ornaments that I shared in my stories last week are finally on the tree and there's a quick picture in my stories from last night - but I hope to share more soon - hope your Sunday is full of peace & joy friends! #color #abmlifeiscolorful #abeautifulmess
I was getting ready to say "Happy December!" Then I actually looked at the date and my phone was like - uh no. that was yesterday. πŸ™ˆ Anyone else already in a holiday tizzy? I'm in #getallthethingsdone mode this weekend, but we have a full schedule so I'm not even sure what will get finished - but progress not perfection is all I'm striving for πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯ So happy weekend instead friends! 😘 #raisinguprubiesinthekitchen
Last year's Christmas set up sure was merry & bright πŸ’‘πŸŽ„β€οΈ but those houses we were painting in my stories yesterday are going to look so fun with our stockings! If you're wondering about the stockings, my aunt made them for us a few years ago and I think the pattern is still pinned to my crochet board on Pinterest! And yay that it's almost the weekend right?! #raisinguprubiesmakeshouseahome
