A Very Domesticated Holiday

January 9, 2011 § 1 Comment

I was at Michael’s chatting with the cashier and I said to her “There really ought to be more holidays centered around baking and crafts!” Being a Michael’s employee, of course she couldn’t agree more.

I made this Christmas card using blank gift tags, a glue pen, and lots of glitter on a basic white card with a textured red background.

then I made another 50. I did not send out a single one. So if you’re one of my friends reading this- yours is in there somewhere. Merry Christmas.

Because the cost of Thanksgiving skyrocketed after I picked up cooking- my mother has limited my meal planning to the appetizer. Above is a puff pastry tart topped with brie, carmelized onions, and dried cranberries. And butter. Lots of butter.

Cake pop bouquet- the mason jar made the perfect container. The cake pops were red velvet on the inside, white candy melts on the outside, then rolled in crushed candy canes, inspired by this post on HWTM.

Presents wrapped Northwest style!

Hope you all had a very safe and Happy Holidays! Definitely sending out my Christmas cards early next time…

Where Am I?
