I meant to take pictures of everything I made, but I have been SO busy making all this stuff it slipped my mind and then all of a sudden everything was given away already! So I will just list them off:

  1. Cinnamon Sugared Almonds
  2. Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans
  3. Vinatarta Cookies
  4. Spicy BBQ Rub
  5. Jamaican Jerk Rub
  6. Fruited Vinegar
  7. Basil Olive Oil
  8. Oregano Olive Oil
  9. Toffee
  10. Tree Skirt for Eloa
  11. 12 Placemats for my Mom
  12. Knit Toques
  13. Knit Mittens
  14. Knit Slippers
  15. Fabric Coffee Sleeves ( like the cardboard things)
  16. Oven Mitts and Pot Holders
  17. Lemongrass Olive Oil Body Scrub
  18. Cucumber Bath Salts
  19. Sugar Plum Bath Salts
  20. Chamomile Mint Bath Salts
  21. Grape Strawberry Lip Balm with beeswax, olive oil, shea butter and vitamin E.
  22. Strawberry Limeade, Mandarin Mango, and Grapefruit bath bombs
  23. Green Apple Shea Butter Soap
  24. Warm Vanilla Sugar Shea Butter Soap
  25. Turkey Jerky
  26. Indian Paneer Cheese with hot Chillis
  27. Rye Multigrain Cracker
Wow, when I write it out in a list like that it seems like a lot of different things! No wonder my life has been completely consumed in the last month by making gifts! Pretty much every spare minute I had, I made gifts. I truly did enjoy it, and I am glad I did it.

My favorite part was probably making the bath stuff, mostly the bath bombs! So much so that I think I would like to start selling them. We need to pay for our fertility treatments/adoption some how, so why not make bath stuff in my spare time. I could sell it at local craft shows and on Etsy! We will see...
