Merry Christmas

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..

 That's all I have for now...I was able to gift 6 people with my homemade items...
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
