First up is the simple but genius "cookies in a jar"which I got from here (I just used choc chips). I had enough ingredients on hand to make 4 of these...and they are too cute!
Next I wanted to make a hot chocolate treat for the girl's class. I made these last year also but didn't have a blog then. Wilton decorator bags, hot cocoa mix, sprinkles, marshmallows. Easy. Cute.
Yesterday I made Candy Cane Sugar scrub. I got the idea from here. Here are the ingredients you will need:
2 Cups of white sugar
some coconut oil
some olive oil (perhaps)
red food coloring
peppermint essential oil
First batch I mixed up the sugar with about 1/2 cup of coconut oil and 1/2 cup of olive oil until I achieved the texture I wanted...you can always add more sugar or more oil! Then I divided the mix, dyed one half red and added the peppermint to that half. Then you layer the white and red in a clean jar, packing it down as you go...

I am obsessed with little trees this year....I saw a bunch of different colored ones on Pinterest and knew I had to get some and color them! These are the good ones to get if you are going to do this. I got them at Michaels with a 50% off coupon so they cost about $10 for the big bag of different sizes. The dollar store ones did NOT bleach out for me, even after hours, days in the bleach.
So I decided to color them up using my different ink sprays from all different companies (yes I have many) and it was SO fun. I was supposed to wait for my daughter's to get home to do this but I couldn't stop. I think I left them 4. Well, we can always get more! Here are some pics....
I think this post has gone on too long so I will continue tomorrow. Have a great day!
