Can you all believe that it's about a week until Christmas?? Whaaaaaaaat?!? I can hardly believe it. Today everyone from the Battalion (and Brigade) signed out for leave.
We are going to be out of town this year, heading to California. This is both good and bad, good because we won't have to stress out about some things but bad because it creates a whole set of new things stress about! This weekend I am focusing on wrapping gifts, cleaning the house, and making my Christmas gifts (more to come on this). Today I was *supposed* to focus on the cleaning portion...But tend to get distracted by the creative portion.
I am grateful that I'm pretty much done with my shopping...I will say, there are a few more things that need to be done...But other than that I think I'm good. And of all things, I am happy to say that I am done shopping for my family (we're having our makeshift Christmas on Sunday) and Jesse are taken care of. So whatever else needs to be done will be done during the work week...Even though I believe so many people are going to have the week off!
So touching on my creative projects, I was searching for things that I could easily make that wouldn't cost a fortune. If you bake or scrapbook, these things are simple...And you would have a lot of this around the house!
So this all got started on the internet of course....By someone that calls themself Bakerella. Have you heard? This is a project she made which is SO CUTE!
If you are interested in making the Cowgirl Cookies and more photos you can see them here.
So of course someone decided that they would make a Christmas edition...I know, not that hard. But here is their idea:

Both blogs do have templates for the labels. You can print them up on card stock and use double sided tape to adhere them to the jar. Super cute! This is just one of the gifts I'm making....I will post photos of my gifts when I'm finished!

Best of luck to you all with your shopping & gifts!
