Happy December! and A Festive Little Share!!

HAPPY DECEMBER! (can you BELIEVE that! Time is FLYING by me!!)

So today I have a fun share for you.. I LOVE the 12 days of xmas ideas out there... crafts, stamping, baking - I am sure you get all the emails daily! LOVE them!).. Michelle and Melissa are doing a FUN one.. and you know I LOVE those PTI girls! SOOO I got the idea to ask on the boards if anyone wanted to join along.. and guess what they did!! (Day 1 can be found HERE!)

So today starts our Day 1 of the 12 days of xmas shares (I will have more.. maybe I can talk them into more too! HA!)- Also gonna enter this in some challenges!! (which was my goal in 2010.. more challenges...and GASP 2010 is almost done.. I better get busy on that! ;) )
This fun box is PERFECT size for some candy and a gift card! :) or a little homemade goodie!
Template is from MTME (cutesy cover.. its FREE!), CS- all from PTI , PP- October Afternoon, Ribbon from an ebay store, stamp from Impress, Snowflake made by me using Accent Essentials Cricut Cart.

I also LOVE recipes.. so while I havent started my baking yet, and I thought it was a GREAT idea Michelle and Melissa were sharing a recipe a day too.. I thought I would add that on to my post! These are some of our FAVORITES to make.. HERE is the recipe! (it says 20.. UM lets just say I can eat that many myself.. we usually TRIPLE it.. and still make 2 batches.. they are that yummy and EASY.. the kids LOVE to help make them! )
