A Handmade Christmas

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all enjoying the holidays.
We had a wonderful 'handmade' Christmas this year,
and I thought I'd show you (over the next few days)
just a few of the projects I tried.
Thanks goodness for Pinterest!

Every year I make my girls a hamper each, to take away with them.
Usually full of lovely goodies that they wouldn't buy themselves.
Here's what went into my very simple, 'handmade' hamper.
Some thing were made up last minute and I forgot to take pics... duh!

 Vegetable Couscous and Savoury Rice

Christmas Trail Mix

Chocolate Fudge Oat Cookies from The Pink Whisk

Minestrone Soup Mix

Cajun Dirty Rice from Veggie Belly

Snowman Soup

One of the other things I added was a bottle of flavoured vodka each. 
Mr Kiss and I had great fun sampling each flavour on Christmas Morning - 
for quality control, you understand.
Werther's Original was a big hit, 
whilst After Eight should definitely come with a warning label !!
