Let it Snow!

Christmas is the time for giving and I'm feeling the Christmas spirit, so here is another freebie.  Snowman and snowflake cupcake toppers and cupcake wrappers. 

My First Feature

Thank you Christine from "Life Happens Love Helps" for interviewing me and allowing me to sponsor a giveaway on her blog.  The blog is in German so my American friends might have to go into Google translate to get an idea of what it's saying.  If you'd like to leave a comment and enter this $20 Giveaway to my shop, Christine speaks perfect English so no worries.  Even if you're not interested in the giveaway you should stop by her blog just to check out her adorable children and beautiful photography.  Thanks again Christine for featuring my shop on your blog.

Oreo Truffles

I love this recipe.  It's so simple but very dangerous.  These little bites of oreo goodness are very addictive.  I only recommend you make these if you plan to send them or take them somewhere.  Otherwise you will end up eating all of them.  So proceed with caution.

Happy Holidays to all the teachers

Every year I give all of my children's teachers a little something before the winter break. With four children that equates to a multitude of teachers.  I typically do tons of baking and assemble a large container filled with yummy treats.  This year I realized that many parents do the same thing I'm doing and it's better to give a small more personal gift than to shower them with sweets. 

I kept it simple and sweet and yummy.  Just a holiday mug filled with Oreo truffles and a bag of vanilla Chi tea (my new favorite).  I also slid the recipe card in just in case.  It doesn't have to be fancy but it's always nice to let them know how much you care.  

Happy Holidays to all the teachers out there.  I hope you have a relaxing and stress free winter break.

Free Holiday Gift tags

Here are some free gift tags for any or all of your last minute Christmas presents.  I always run out of labels and I would much rather download them than run back to the crowded stores.  Just down load the pdf file here  and print and cut and voila you've got labels.  Easy peezy, lemon squeezy.

Pumpkin Roll

No Holiday would be complete without a pumpkin roll on the dessert table.  The flavors of pumpkin and cream cheese go together so well.
