DIY Christmas Cookie Mix in a Jar

Jar of Love//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Yesterday we spent all day baking and decorating Christmas cookies. Sometimes we just do not have the time to make and bake. Another great way to gift cookies to your loved ones is putting all of the ingredients in a jar. It looks great layered.

Pour your ingredients one by one into a Mason jar. Wrap some ribbon or string around the lid and attach a homemade gift tag. You can write the directions on a recipe card and slip it in to their Christmas card. I found several different recipes on The Domestic Geek blog.

How-to Christmas Ornament Cookies

How-to Baking Christmas Cookies

We have been baking and decorating Christmas cookies today. I have two recipes to share with you to make your own at home. The first batch are easy sugar cookies. Just add some icing, m&m’s, and a ROLO candy and you have a Christmas Ornament cookie. Use any assortment of colors for your ornament decoration.

Christmas Ornament Cookies Recipe

To keep things easy, I’m going to show you a recipe from the same blog for the next cookie. It is so easy to make! 4 ingredient Christmas cookies cannot be more simple. Prepare the cake mix, scoop small dough balls on to cookie sheet, bake, cool, and place your Hershey’s Kiss candy on top.

Trimming the Tree with My Deer

Trimming the Tree with My Deer

I have been to The Arcade and loaded up on Christmas decor! The Trompe Loeil advent calendar and the moss&mink collection are a couple of my favorites this year. Now I need to get back to decorating the house. Tomorrow is a big baking day!

I am still loving my CATWA Lilly bento mesh head. It looks great with Glam Affair makeup. Which you may realize is my favorite. I’ve also been digging the Veechi eyeshadows lately.

Under the Christmas Tree – Catwa Lilly

Under the Tree

Catwa recently released the new bento head Lilly.  I think it is adorable, and with bento you can pretty much make it to be your own look. Even if many people buy it you will not all look identical. I am wearing it with a Glam Affair applier and Veechi eyeshadow.

Checking Out Some Rental Property

Rental Land

If you are in the market for some commercial property and need someone to show you around then I am your girl. Lo Lo has 8192 sq m (1/8 sim) up to 1/4 sim. The price is right and so are your neighbors. Give me a ring if you want to see the place or take this taxi!

Place your landscaping and store. Terrain height can be edited. Sim changes with the seasons.

Why is it called Black Friday?

Cherishville

From what I have read, Black Friday got its name from the heavy traffic the shopping sales caused. Now the sales begin sooner than ever and Cyber Monday seems to start the Monday before Thanksgiving.

Black Friday sales are coming to an end. Did you get everything you wanted? After all that shopping  I needed to stop in this little cafe in Cherishville. Listed are just a few from stores that I blog for.

Cae has 50% off gift cards through November 27th.
Blueberry is 40-60% off through November 29th
An Lar Poses is 50% off until November 27th
Truth is 50% off until November 30th

Fresh Face for Winter

Let’s face it, wintertime is here. The cold temperatures and blistering winds will dry your skin out quick. You want your face to be glowing and soft. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and keep your face moisturized. A good exfoliation will help brighten your face. Or, here in Second Life you can just got to Glam Affair and pick up your wintertime look.
