It's Christmas Eve, Eve and we only have 2 presents under the tree!!!!! Can you say, PANIC??
I actually love giving gifts, but like most everyone else I know, my family already has everything plus more than we need or even want, for that matter. I have been on Pinterest looking for some home made gifts that would be fun to do with the kids. It's really not about saving $$$, but more about it being personalized! Since it seems, for me to get the unique style I want, it might actually cost more than I would spend on something from the store! :)
So I went shopping last night to gather up all of my supplies for our homemade gifts. I have decided that I will make my infamous Chocolate Chip Cookies (going to make them bars) and the Best Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake EVER! I also bought every thing to make Strawberry Preserves... well everything, but the Strawberries! They only had 1 container left and they didn't look good. So I'll do those another time. I also got the fixins for brown sugar scrub for the girls in my family! Aren't ya'll lucky! Here are some images I took from Pinterest. I'm hoping mine turn out this lovely!
This is what the cookie bars will look like, Hopefully! :)
I am excited to make this.. it will probably be a New Years Treat!
Here is the Sugar Scrub!!!!
Pretzel treats- with Hershey Kisses and M&M's- I forgot to get stuff for these. Oops!
Aren't the tags cute? I know Addi will have fun helping me. She loves anything that involves glue and glitter!
I actually pinned these a while back in hopes that I might make them one day. We shall see.
This Hot Cocoa is a perfect gift for kids to give to friends or teachers

I better get to work... it's Christmas Eve and we have lots to do!
Happy Making and Merry Christmas!
