First, for all those that celebrate, may this holiday be joyous!
We've been busy the past week getting ready for both Hanukkah and Christmas. Adrienne and I did some baking this past weekend (fudge (in cookie cutter molds), pretzel "cookies", sugar cookies, and chex mix), I made 4 jars of beyond bitter grapefruit marmalade (which I can't give as gifts - ugh, it's really bitter - so I'm going to try to incorporate it into BBQ sauce over the next few weeks), and Adrienne and I have done a little crafting (yeah!).
Adrienne's gifts to her friends are bird nest necklaces (we took the idea from here - awesome!) - they weren't that expensive to make and they came out super cute.
And I decided to start sewing again ... my two projects were owls (pattern here) and gift card holders for those that get gift cards this year (pattern here). There was so much more I wanted to do but I think I'm running out of time. :)
The only other thing I'm hoping to accomplish is this cute fleece hat. Let's see if it can get done! (Oh, and I did get one other thing done but since the recipient reads my blog, it'll have to wait until after Christmas for me to share it!)
