Some Christmassey type stuff...

Been trying to make myself feel festive...the kids make it fairly difficult to be 'Grinchy' LOL

These are SO cute...not my original idea,(got this one off Mel Goodesells blog...some amazing ideas here!) made for Sammy to take to the Family Day Care Christmas party yesterday.
Using Royale biscuits, dipped in white chocolate and topped off with a Jaffa and a Spearmint leaf lolly. They look MUCH more impressive than they should for such an easy (I was going to say recipe, but its not even cooking, more like assembling LOL) 'thing' (yeah, 'thing' works here) And I have been wanting to make a cup cake for forever. I know. They are SO 6 months ago. But I couldn't bring myself to make one without a reason. And, well, Christmas decorations are ALL about pretties with no real purpose!
I got the idea for the 'button berries' from Linda Albrecht's blog.

Ribbon from my D2U DT kit. Love this ribbon!

And kindy glitz...LOTS of kindy glitz.

Thanks for stopping by!
