Christmas Jam Jar Tombola
It is a very busy time of year, especially if you are running a small business – this week I have (
squeezed in) enjoyed preparing jam jars for the school jam jar tombola.
The kids loved making biscotti, and chocolate fudge, the left overs handily doubled up as my work colleagues Christmas cards (I would much rather share home made food than write out cards, perhaps it is my aversion to buying cards!). Thanks to Jen for the fudge recipe recommendation:)
Next I decided to triple up assisting my daughter in making her Christmas Tree Decoration for a school competition, entering December’s Pinaddicts challenge, and filling a jam jar!
The inspiration was this great tutorial for using scrap fabrics from Stumble & Stitches – this gave me the added boon of trying to teach my 6 year old how to use the sewing machine
We made Christmas trees, as this was easier on learning steering – lets just say that is a work in progress!
Other jars donated included red tomato chutney, mango chutney, plus flower hairslides. I do love using up tiny scraps of fabric to make the flower corsages, it’s very satisfying using up trimmings from knitting needle cases!!
In other exciting news please do check back tomorrow as I am hosting a fab giveaway… I will share a sneak preview:)
As usual I am pooping by Handmade Harbour – I missed you guys last week:)
