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 Gifts

Hi Friends,

Here are some more of my homemade gifts that I plan on passing out this year. This is my Snowman Soup ( Hot Chocolate ) and I used the templates from Nichole Heady's blog for the hanging tag. The top of the containers are embellished with a snowflake from my PTI holiday tags set.

This is the cocoa recipe that I used :

10 c. dry milk powder

4 3/4 c. confectioners sugar
1 3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa

1 3/4 c. non dairy creamer

Mix 3/4 c. boiling water with 1/3 c. mix. Enjoy!

This Chili Spice Mix was a last minute addition to my gifts. My sweet blogging friend and design team mate, Cheryl , turned me on to this site here , and that is where the idea came from.

They even had a link to these cool tags for the top!

Thanks for visiting and I hope this helps someone for a last minute gift idea!

PS- Keep in mind that the sale is still going on over at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Stamp sets are still Buy 2 Get 1 free until December 23rd!

Details not mentioned above-Ink: Stampin Up, ribbon from my supplies.

I love the idea for the Chili Spice mix. Your jars look great, love the snowflake on the lids. I don't know if you have ever done this, but sometimes when I am making the hot chocolate mix, I will used flavored creamer for a different taste.
