Heads up! For the next THREE days I'm hosting a giveaway and sale for Branch Basics soap, which can be used as a laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner, and even tear-free shampoo.

You know I love to DIY just about everything, but during the holidays I'm giving myself a pass to skip some of that and decorate cookies with the kids instead. I think you should give yourself one, too. 

Pop over and enter now, because the winner will be announced this Thursday!
