Over Christmas we were invited to a Christmas party and when the hostess told me she was making Grinch punch since we would be watching “The Grinch” I got excited to make something Grinch themed as well.
I hope all of my readers have had a very Merry Christmas! I know for our family it is one of the busiest times of the year, and when we aren’t busy we are focused on family time as much as possible! So I have had no spare time to blog, but I will be back at it now with the new year
Last week I posted about some homemade hot chocolate in a jar gifts I was making for friends and family. Well I bought several jars of the marshmallow bits on sale and with coupons for these gifts. While going to throw away the empty containers I stopped and actually looked at them. After taking off the labels and washing them they were nice containers! Perfect size for a stack of homemade cookies
This year I was determined to do something different for our Christmas card photo. I researched and checked Pinterest, but kept coming up with the same ideas. Tons of people were doing similar family photos. I have a strange quirk in that I love to be original and different. So I have been thinking and brainstorming for a while now on ideas. It hit me finally, I LOVE Christmas carols! Why not let my kids act them out in pictures
Today I am sharing another gift I have been making for my friends and family this Christmas, homemade hot chocolate mix. I tried several recipes, but ended up just making my own
I have been busy making Christmas gifts for my friends and family because I love to give homemade gifts. I love to receive them also. Just knowing someone loves me enough to put some effort into a gift is really special. Today I am sharing one of my favorite gifts I am making: detox bath in a jar.
Yesterday I hosted my annual gingerbread building party! This year we were able to do gingerbread nativity scenes I have an awesome friend who gave me a gingerbread nativity kit last year for Christmas. I have been waiting all year to use it with my small group girls for our annual party and it was so much fun.
Today is my birthday so I wanted to share a fun craft my girls and I are doing together. I have been getting ready for Christmas here lately. Making gifts, getting out decorations and crafting of course! I made some easy but cute little gift tags for this year that I’m sharing today.
