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.

Fresh Face for Winter

Fresh Face

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.

Baking Pumpkin Pie

Baking Pumpkin Pie

Pie is one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner. There is usually a pecan, sweet potato, apple, chocolate, and pumpkin pie. That is a lot of pie. Dust Bunny has a complete Harvest Feast at Collabor88. You can buy the whole thing or individual pieces.

I found a recipe for you, so that you can make your very own Dust Bunny Pumpkin Pie. Check out the Great Pumpkin Pie Recipe by Sally. Complete with leaf decor how-to!

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice

Yes, it is fall y’all! I do love pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin carving, etc. When I was choosing a color for my Blueberry Poppy jacket I loved the orange. It is a pumpkin color. The Cae Sawyer jewelry set also had orange in the gemstone settings to match. My hair was released earlier this year, but I LOVE this style. It is so cute and fresh.
