Hot Cocoa

Happy Wednesday!
I wanted to pop in here for a really quick post before starting my mad rush to get ready for our trip home to Michigan tomorrow morning.  It's been a crazy couple of days of crafting, baking, cleaning...all that fun stuff :)

Here is one of the many handmade gifts I am giving this year:
The jar is a layered mix for Peppermint Hot Cocoa!  I am all about hot chocolate in the winter...well all year actually :)  So making these up to give to family was a blast!  The cute jars are from Ikea.

I made a little tag using the sweet image Latte from Saturated Canary.  Colored her up with my colored pencils and then layered her onto a tag with a few overly glittered punched snowflakes.  I never seem to have enough ribbon to use for my tags, but I have a large spool of twine that seems to always work just fine :)

These all turned out so cute!  I loved putting them together!  They are going into little handmade fabric bags with some foot scrub or bath salts:
Pictured here with Lavender bath salts :)

I will be away for the next few weeks.  The posts that follow will be scheduled since I won't have a reliable computer connection while home.
I hope everyone has an absolutely Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!  Be safe, enjoy time with family, and remember that at Christmas-calories don't count :)
