Hello My Friends..!
It's the Last Weekend to get those last minute gifts...
Thank goodness my shopping is complete. The internet is the best invention, EVER!
I use Amazon alot for shopping and Christmas Time is no exception. It's wonderful being able to review an item and read reviews before making a purchase. I have only had to return one item in the past several years shopping with Amazon and have been very pleased with the many purchases I made. My son has Prime Shipping due to his job, if there is an item with high shipping costs he will use his Prime Account and save me the shipping costs. A win-win..!
Here are a few homemade gifts I made for this years Holiday Gift Giving...
I made these illuminated jar with personal pictures on them for those I am gifting to.
Very easy...I used Vellum Paper, chose a picture from my computer and printed. Then I cut the picture down to size and wrapped around the jar sealing it with Mog Podge....I placed a battery operated flicker candle inside. You can also place a small votive candle inside and burn.
The blotchy look on the jar is a frosted look I wanted created with the Mog Podge. The look turned out to my liking, it does look much better than in the pictures.
Here are some Mason Jars I spruced up a bit. I took labels I had or downloaded them to which I customized them, mod podged them onto the jars and also gave the jars an all over Frosted Look...The lids I spray painted black. Put some labels on with a very thin rope and filled with Tea, Coffee or my Homemade Cocoa.
This jar is a very Old Jar I purchased at my Aunt and Uncles Auction. I gifted this to my Besties' Daughter filled with Cocoa. These jars can be used as a storage container and displayed on the counter.
This label is one I personally created..
I made a Card Holder for a few friends and family members.
Clothes Pins made Prim on one side and clipped to a thick rope tied off and looped at the ends...
Lastly I made some homemade Cranberry Almond Biscotti
This was my first time making Biscotti and I am very pleased with the outcome.
It's perfect..! The taste, splendid!
And it was much easier to make than I had anticipated..
I hope they enjoy them..:)
If your out and about shopping this weekend, please take caution and be safe....!
There are people and cars...EVERYWHERE!
Have a very Blessed and Wonderful
