HOLLY BLOGGY CHRISTMAS-GIFT(COOKIE)EXCHANGE-DAY1




There's nothing as heart warming as Home-made or hand made Christams gifts this season!!!!
I love Diy's so handmade or rather here ,home baked cookies are no exception.....

TO begin with ,begining today ,we are having 5days of pure fun & good cheer at SIMPLY SWEET HOME, and today,14th is the day of handmade gifts.
Honestly its the best to begin with-i have always loved indulging & my shopping to resource stuff-all from scratch begins way ahead to the last min....
Whether its give aways for all or take aways for all that stop by at our home on Christmas ,its all so exciting for me to do it myself!!!!
I love putting up my tree and all red,green and god hued linen by mid -nov latest & belive it stays put till feb,around valentines,jus the red remains and then i love to plunge in to the summery hues of yellow,green & creamy tones....
This time its a wee bit different coz our homes are under remodelation ,we have moved (temprly),and are finalizing on another place too....
so till then ,most of our linen has been ,laundered pressed and packed in(a lot given away=more shopping but later)with sandalwood sticks & some with napthelene balls and sheets to keep 'em safe.....
Most of our cutlery,crockery and home stuff has been cleant,polished ,wrapped individually and packed up too.....
Plus we as a family are going to be admist beautiful nature ,far away from the hustling ,bustling life for a few days ....am i making a excuse for the lack of putting in my best....no no...jus the whole situation and i still haven gone down to the city shopping for colored papers et all ,so this post is jus with what i have in at home which me picked up awhile back.....
I did so try 12 cookies @ christmas and by 24th belive i should complete 'em all....and have a few bigger hampers....
Ok so lets begin today by working on a few hampers and build it up step by step....instead of a goody basket filled with local goan portuguese sweets i tweaked it to cookies this time round and boy ,was it fun....
Read on ......

  1. This post is filled with so many awesome things. I don't even know where to begin. First of all chocolate chip cookies speak to me. Second of all, so do snickerdoodles. I LOVE cinnamon sugar. Love it.

    Plus all of the decorations have gotten me in the Christmas spirit. It seems like you're making the best of a hectic situation. The holidays are all about who you're with and not where you are or what you're doing. Seems like you've got that covered though :D

  11. Dress-up a
    personality from Naruto, Sakura or maybe Spongbob having a whimsical outfit.
    This is why they are so budget-friendly and stylish.
    Heavier dresses should be avoided by broad shoulder women in order to avoid heavy look.
    You can change colors and add accessories to personalize the look before you buy.
