Productive Sunday...

I finally finished putting together my sister's presents (x4) - lavender fragranced wheat heat bags and draw string lingerie bags. For a giggle, inside each lingerie bag is a pair of Size 28 big undies with their initial appliqued on the rear! Should get some laughs on Christmas Day!
The theme for the presents this year was 'fabric' and must be home made. I attached a verse for the heat bags and I found cute little silver charms which came in organza bags which say 'Sisters...best friends always'.
I am really pleased with how they turned out, considering I don't sew.

I also got creative and made this Cookie Christmas Tree. It was quite a tedious task as it took over an hour to ice. Each biscuit is individually drizzled with icing then decorated with cachous balls. It looks really cool!
My family were not that thrilled when I said "I think I'll take this to work tomorrow for the staff for their morning tea". The staff really enjoyed it.

I plan to make a Gingerbread one and go all out, decorating it with different lollies on each branch. You'll need an insulin drip to eat it!

I have it in my head that I am not going to stress now that there are only 10 days to go. I have most presents organised, I know what I need to cook for Christmas Day so that's set and my girls are home now so if I need chores done, they can help out.
Stress less and enjoy....

Cheers - Joolz
