Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Christmas Dish Soap

Hi All,


Today I have an idea for a gift that is not my own. This was inspired by my friend Holly who made this last year for party favors. She loved the dish soap they sell at Williams Sonoma, so she set out to see if she could make some herself. It turned out great. So....


My friend Laura made some this year, gave it to me, and I decided it was so fabulous, I had to make some too! We got all of our supplies here. They have everything...Scents and containers, different lids, you name it.


I shared some of my Vanilla Sugar scent with Laura....






and she gave me some of the White Christmas scent she had. I'm always so excited to make and give a gift that is not something that has to be eaten!


I printed out the labels on my computer and stamped some snowflakes on them. Then I made a simple tag and attached it with some ribbon.



I'm so happy to have some small gifts at the ready so early in the season!


The ladies over at A Passion for Papertrey have an easy challenge this week...Make something with a Christmas tree on it. Well, I guess this qualifies, so I'm linking this over there to help spread the holiday cheer!

Wonderful tag and a clever idea to make dish soap! I am afraid to click that link where you got your supplies... for fear of my wallet's contents going bye-bye! :) Great job, Karin! :)
