Christmas Gift Ideas . . .

I want to thank a new blogging friend, Melissa, for this beautiful friendship award. Melissa is a brand new blogger, pay her a visit @ She has a beautiful home!
Stacey @ got me thinking yesterday about making homemade gifts for Christmas this year. I remembered that I had some books called 'Gifts in a Jar'.

Here's one of the recipes from the soup book.

I also have a muffin & bread book.

Each recipe has 6 cards to cut out & attach to jars. Now all I have to do is decide which jars I want to make! I've always wanted to make these for gifts, but never had the time or energy when I was teaching. Now I can! I'm excited about this project!

Thanks Stacey for sparking the inspiration!

Hi Carol, I was happy to pass on the award to you. It's well deserved! Don't forget to post the question "5 things you want to do" and to pass it to 3 more bloggers. Have fun!
Hope you're having a great weekend. ~Melissa :)
