Five things

Just one more week ’til Christmas and you know what that means: time to bake all the cookies! Here I used two simple gingerbread and sugar cookie recipes to make DIY holiday garlands.

Oh the kitchen’s been smelling so good! Yesterday I made these triple chocolate sour cream cookies by Christine at Life on Manitoulin. Their cakey texture makes them almost brownie-like (yum!) and the m&m’s give them a nice crunch.

We shared them with friends who came over for a playdate after school.

We’ve also made a few ornaments for the tree, like these Christmas pom pom ones over at So Fawned Lifestyle.

How much do we love personalized notebooks? I ordered these ones from minted a couple of weeks ago using a gift certificate I’d won in a contest (woot!) and couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out. It’s Christmas come early!


And speaking of Christmas, one try small things reader is going to find this surprise prezzie at their door in the next couple of days, maybe even tomorrow! Is it you? Oh I can’t wait for it to arrive!
