Merry Christmas

Merry belated Christmas to all! Hope that all of you that celebrate enjoyed a wonderful time with your families.

I want to share what we made and gave out to our neighbors this year. The treat is Ghiradelli brownies that we baked in some throw away pans from the Container Store. I added a ribbon and tag to each.

The tag was stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto Gold shimmery paper. The "Merry Christmas" comes from Holiday Jar Fillers, and the tag image from Fillable Frames.

On a personal note, my kids and I delivered one of these to our special older neighbor across the street and chatted with him a bit at that time. We got a call two days ago that he had passed away on Christmas night. God bless, Mr Marc and rest in peace with your beloved wife. (I couldn't show these treats without thinking and mentioning him). We will truly miss him!
