Good afternoon everyone. I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. I've been working day and night on catch up projects. I completed gift containers for the boy scouts, the girl scouts, teachers, bus drivers, co-workers, my grand children's bff, and other friends and relatives. All together I made 30 hot cocoa cards, based on Mary's post here , and 40 of the candy gift boxes based on Mary's post here.
Here are some of the candy gift boxes I made.
The peppermint pretzel recipe is here.
My DIL and I made 30 dozen cookies and a ton of fudge. to fill trays we give away. I made the best two cakes. They are both bundt cakes. They looked very pretty for the middle of cookie trays.
One is a Candy Cane Cake
The Second is Butter-Rum Pound Cake
I don't own a camera, so I've been using my DILs. However, she is on vacation with my grandchildren for the next week. So I won't be able to post any pictures. I still have a few Christmas cards to get in the mail and I haven't wrapped anything yet. Is anyone else swamped? It didn't help that we got dumped with a blizzard last weekend. It took until Tuesday to get dug out. I can't bake with a bunch of people in the house, so I baked all day Tuesday when the kids got to go back to school and my son and DIL got to go to work. Whew.
Well, I spent today designing a few last Christmas cards. I just need to cut them out and assemble. Then I think the cards are finished. Yeah!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
