Coming down the stretch...

I'm so into pretty wrapping today! Anilu totally inspired me the other day, and tonight I plan on digging in and finishing up some gifts. I'll try and post more tomorrow...My daughter has a "big sis" at school who is a dream. We covered these giant sized chocolate bars for her last night, using the December WIP Kit leftovers. Quick and fun! And what 5th grader wouldn't love that?
And these are the chocolate covered spoons that I made to go along with the homemade cocoa, chocolate covered marshmallows and peppermint sticks. I added little gingerbread candies to match some of the mugs I had, bagged them up and tied with a ribbon. (Can't take credit for this--thanks again, Val!)

Can I also say that my friends and family that have received Anilu's jewelry have simply loved it? It wouldn't be a bad idea to email your husband the link and tell him that you'd like something for New Year's! Seriously, if you're a mom who doesn't do much for yourself, you should wander over to her etsy shop. The quality of her jewelry is top notch--and it is so unique! It has been the big hit so far this giving season for me...

And to end this post, I wanted to thank you all for your interest in the January Project Kit. It sold out this afternoon! BOTH kits will have newsletters sent out on January 1st this time around.

Enjoy a festive evening everyone!
