Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

With the big 'C' word looming, the kids are at fever pitch & Mama is slightly panicked about the gifts that still require much more thought, the gifts that need to be purchased & of course then there is the gifts that still need making!!!

So much to do, so much to do!

Again I hit the Net for some homemade inspiration and found  these wonderful ideas...

Classic Cocoa

Peppermint Stick Cocoa

Four Jars

If you head on over to Bakerella who is responsible for the adorable Cowgirl Cookies, you can also download the PDF label!! But be warned, you may lose hours just she has some fabulous recipes!! OK maybe you should give yourself the whole day... I think I have a serious crush!!!!

Aren't they a beauty? You could grab any of your favourite Cookie or Slice recipes, make up some lovely labels and layer them into jars. I think that it looks fabulous, and I know that I love receiving homemade with love gifts, & I am sure your family, friends, neighbours or Teachers would too! Click the link to see the recipe's and to get you started, then once you have made a few, you probably wont be able to stop!! Cookies are also very easy to manipulate, so by swapping choc bits for selected colored M & M's you could create your own Cristmassy ones!

Here are some other gorgeous ideas that I could not resist sharing!

Feel free to pop back with your link for others to share, after all everyone could do with some inspiration at times!

You may want to make sure you are keeping all those empty jars, you never know when you may need them, you could just cover the lid with fabric, or some gorgeous printable!

Happy Baking & Gift Making!
Oh and don't forget to make some to leave out for Santa *insert Mama smirk here*
