christmas crafting 2009

I'm on holidays. Totally. Two weeks. Bloody awesome. I'm going to craft just for crafting/gifting sake, not for sale. A nice feeling.

This year my festive baking is cookies in a jar minus the nuts, as per Bakerella, cherry and cinnamon biscotti from Donna Hay Dec/Jan issue and cinnamon roasted almonds from Instructables. That cute deer graphic on the packaging below I pinched from Eat, Drink, Chic.

For the humbugs below I used butchers paper and Japanese Washi Masking Tape to decorate. These were our "crackers" for our work lunch. They had balloons, poppers, hats, chocolates and other small gifties in them. Always a hit with the crew, a small business of 7 people so thankfully pretty quick to put together.

    Your baking gifts looks gorgeous!!! I made something similar for my secret santa this year – Christmas Muffins in a jar. Went down really well. There’s a pic on my blog if you want to have a look.
    I love your labels as well.

    Your pressies look so fabulous. I am trying to decide whether to attempt an evening of Christmas baking tonight, or to accept defeat on Christmas plans for this year. We shall see…
