 For Christmas I always like to make a snack gift basket for my friends and family.  I usually buy a bunch of different flavoured nuts chocolate and yoghurt covered nuts and raisins, dried fruit, etc.  And I mix it all up and package it in Christmas cellophane bags (that I get from Dollar Tree) and ribbon.  Then I like to throw in handmade chocolates.  Last year I made chocolate peanut butter crisps, the year before I made dark chocolate mango almond clusters and candied coconut walnut clusters, and the year before I made Peanut butter and Kahlua truffles.

Best of Homemade Gift Ideals (including free printable labels, and packaging ideals)


My other blog OhYouCraftyGal: Top 10 Kick ass Handmade Gifts
If your not sure of what to get for someone on your list, consider a handmade gift.  Most people appreciate the love that goes into making a gift and especially the uniqueness and personalization of it.  With that said, by this time of year I would keep it simple.  Think of projects you can make in a couple days or less and think of gifts that you really couldn't find anywhere else, since that's really the beauty of making handmade gifts.

Today I feel like doing cartwheels.  I finally mastered the art of making hummus.  I've made some plenty of times in the past and it's always just been OK.  No where near as good as the hummus we have at Good Earth.

Yep this about says it all!       image via
For the last few years I have been making most of our food from scratch. Lately I've been much busier working on making fashion accessories for my store Ornute and remodelling our house, so I'm trying to spend less time cooking but still eat healthy.
