Whoa!

I can't believe that its Christmas week already?!? Where has the time gone??

I feel like I am up to my eyeballs in finishing some handmade Christmas presents, wrapping presents, cleaning the house, getting laundry done before we leave for the holiday, etc, etc. Please tell me I am not alone?

One of the things on my list is to make my Christmas Spiced Nuts. These are a favorite of everyone in my family and I always make a few extra jars to put in my Dad and Brothers stockings.


Last year I just re-packaged them in their original containers- you can see those HERE.

But this year I am using glass jars that I collected and covering the tops like I did in this little craft.


Wrapped with a pretty ribbon and a nice tag, these are the perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer.


I use a Better Homes & Gardens recipe for the nuts, I like the way they taste the best- you can get it HERE


Happy Christmas week!!!

Oh great idea with the nuts! I have a huge stack of cookies I want, but I doubt I'm going to get too them. I have loads of christmas gifts to die. I seriously want to cry! So much to do.
