…of Christmas. I’ve done so much today – I love being off work! And I love being able to create home-made Christmas ‘things’ when I have the time – very good reason to take annual leave in the run-up to Christmas.
I found out some Christmas cups…
…and made a Christmas cuppa(or several!).
I made lots of Christmas cards for friends and family.
I took these beautiful berries.
And turned them into Cranberry Sauce.
The sauce is very sharp – almost too sharp – because I reduced the sugar content. I’m going to make another batch next week and I’ll post the recipe then.
I made a gift for a friend.
I know she’ll enjoy 😉
Do you know it is very time-consuming to make gifts and cards for people? So, if you ever receive home-made gifts and cards, please be thankful and appreciative of them. A lot of love and effort is put into them! Depending on the resources used they can be financially costly, too.
And of course, I ate good food including BBQ Baked Beans 😛
What sort of things ease you into the festive spirit?
