Christmas Treats

Hi all,

I hope you have had a merry Christmas. It has felt like Tuesday for me all day (even though it's Wednesday) because of the public holiday yesterday... trying to catch up on all the household jobs today.
Here are a couple of items I made for our Christmas table - we celebrated lunch with family. I made some very simple mini easel cards (all one piece, since they were small) for our place cards:

And I have had these little cuties bookmarked from Bronwyn Eastley's blog here since last Christmas - I even tried to make them for my Christmas in July event, but could not find any candy canes anywhere! So I've finally had a chance to make them (my son helped, which you can probably tell!) I changed the ears and left off the whiskers:

Lastly, here are some skinny treat bags filled with M&Ms....yum! The ones hiding at the back contain Crispy Mint M&Ms, which don't go with my colour scheme, so they are hiding! Angie Jones had the idea to use Crispy Mint M&Ms as a cute Christmas version of an after dinner mint, and I got the topper idea from Adele Khoo:

The holder is simply a decorated Fancy Favour box using the Big Shot - I love it! I've decorated it with Jolly Holiday DSP, Very Vanilla satin ribbon and Holly & Jolly rub-ons. Here's a closer view of the box:

And lastly, not a craft-related photo... but one of my pudding! I always use my Nanna's recipe, which Mum always made for us growing up. As I was listening to it simmering away this year I thought about all the Christmas memories and traditions in our family. It made me a bit sentimental and I am contemplating making a Christmas scrapbook album to record these special memories... since you know scrapping is a huge challenge for me, we'll see how that goes!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new special from Stampin' Up! and some more projects,
