Making

'Tis that time of year when we elves are busy busy busy making making making.

From cookies (I made peppermint snowballs and dark chocolate espresso ones)
to homemade gifts like our Peppermint Playdough (real-life friends, look away!)
The playdough was super-simple to make, and S and I had fun creating it to give to our little friends.
I used this recipe and it yielded 8 pints of the dough, enough for 8 friends.

We even made some gifts for the dads, like these popsicle stick frames, which are waiting for photos.
And here are my ever-present takeout boxes, waiting to be filled with Spicy Party Mix (forgive the awful photos in that post--it was pre-DSLR camera) for Chris' co-workers.  Yum!

Despite the chaos in the house, I love having spools of ribbon and scraps of paper underfoot.
I'm still behind in a few gifts for Soren, as well as a few knitted gifts and teacher "breakfast" baskets with homemade pancake mix and cocoa.

What are you busy making this week?
