Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas

With the holidays just around the corner, it's the prefect time to share some unique gift wrapping ideas with you. When I give presents, I try to make sure the wrapping is just as special as the present. A well wrapped present makes a gift feel special no matter how much money was spent on it. It says to the receiver, that you took time with it and didn't just quickly throw something into a bag. For ideas and step by step photos, click below.

Children's Apron: A Step by Step Guide

Well it's offical, my oldest bear is now 6 years old! Last weekend we hosted a gingerbread house decorating party and each little guest received one of these cute aprons to use at the party and take home. These would be perfect to make and give along with a set of baking utensils for birthday presents or to make for your little kitchen helper(s) this holiday season. For a downloadable FREE PDF pattern and a step by step guide with lots of photos, click below.

Who doesn't love a party!

It's that time of year again, my oldest bear will be celebrating her 6th birthday soon (how in the world is it possible that she's turing six!) and this year for her party she wanted to decorate gingerbread houses with her friends. I've written about how special it is for kids to receive fun and creative party invites (click here for the post), so this year I thought it would be fun to bake mini gingerbread house cookies to match the invites. For photos of the invites and where to find them along with gingerbread recipe (which makes the softest, tastiest gingerbread) click below.

Trick or Treat... definitely Treat

Once again a holiday has snuck up on me. This week has been a whirlwind of assignments, study, baking, sewing halloween costumes and making treats for the little bears to take to school. I have promised myself that next year, I will be more organised and pace myself instead of the craziness that has been my week! If you're looking for a relatively quick and fun treat to give the kiddos this halloween then these mummy pops are just the ticket. Read on for directions.
