Holiday gifts

The girls and I had a great time making our Pretzel Hugs again this year. It has become quite a fun little December tradition in our house. :)

I found these adorable glass Christmas trees at Target and knew they would be perfect to hold my tasty little treats. Now all I needed was a tag…

Perfect! Love that little snowman of mine. I just pulled up his picture and added some text and a frame in Photoshop…

and then put two pics together and developed them as a 4×6.

A fun and simple gift for friends and neighbors.

We drove around listening to the Chipmunks Christmas CD in the rain last night (man has it ever been raining here!) and delivered our little gifts. The girls were simply giddy running up to doorsteps and handing out treats and telling everyone Merry Christmas. And I was simply giddy watching them.

    How adorable that photo of your little man is!! You sure are creative. I would never know how to photoshop that in….
    And those treats make such a nice gift, especially in the glass Christmas tree container.
    Hey, does south Orange County count as being your neighbor? LOL I want me one of those trees!!!
    Yes, the rain has been crazy, hasn’t it? And the wind. We have fallen trees all over our little town. So sad for the trees. But I’ll admit that I’m seriously loving this crazy storm. I guess because it’s something that doesn’t happen often where we live. I guess it’s supposed to let up on Thursday, though, right? So Christmas Day should be nice.
    Merry Christmas to you!

    We made pretzel hugs for gifts this year, and gave them to just about everyone we know! I fixed them in small mason jars, and just made a cute tag on my cricut. Everyone raved about them!! My husband even took a bag of them to work to share, and said everyone just fell in love! Thank you so much for the idea!
