I usually make some sweet goodies as gifts for the staff in the school office each year. But … I was a little pressed for time this year … so my usual fudge making day had to be canned … and instead I baked some cookies!
What made them that bit more special was that I used the fabulous Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps to decorate them. Such a fab idea … and made in super quick time. The recipe only took 12 mins to bake. I sprinkled some Cinnamon Sugar over the top for a bit more “sugar & spice”.
Stampin’ Up! made it super easy for me this year … with a wonderful gift packaging set in the Holiday Catalogue designed especially for these yummy cookies. It is called “Season of Sweets Designer Kit” … and so I bought 2 packs … anticipating that I would need a few. They came together so quickly and made a simple cookie look really special. Perfect for that little thank you gift!
So … with such a lack of time this year (because of the wedding) … I felt quite satisfied that I still managed some hand baked & hand crafted gifts. The kits are only available until 31 Jan. I know I sound like a SU! demo (habit) … but these are so fabulous. I think I might buy some more for next Christmas! Oh … YES! … Leonie – this is yours. There are still 3 sitting on my desk. I hadn’t managed to find the time to deliver. So … they are probably stale by now … but at least you know the thought was there! (Same for Jenny & Tracey!)
Bookwork catch up tomorrow. Bree is at her other nanny’s … as she was here on Wednesday instead. I also still have to strip the Christmas tree. Got sidetracked yesterday editing 2 1/2 years of photos to print some out for the kids albums. Now I just need to get them printed! Busy Busy Busy … AGAIN!
