This was such a fun swap! I really enjoyed seeing what everyone made, especially because we each received such different things! My partner was Jennifer of "Adventures in Mixed Media, from Canada. I hope you'll visit her blog! She has a house full of beautiful things, an art studio, a dog named Odelia, and even some chickens!
Instead of sending just one recipe, she made this little book for me! Darling!
Doesn't this sound good?
And these "Chocolate Bumps" ARE good! I know because I made them!
The tart mold is an old one! And so is the Santa paper she used. I love the mica around the edges!
I'm sure many of you will recognize the ornament on the right. Jennifer opened the vintage ornament and added a bottle brush tree. Can you believe that she made those teeny tiny cookies and candy canes out of clay? I love the little sugar bells on top too!
Look at the gingerbread ornament! It's made out of puzzle pieces!
Isn't that neat? You probably want to go make one now, don't you?
My things came in this wonderful Pillsbury tin. And then this little cookbook and two of the most perfect ornaments for a kitchen x-mas tree ever!
Next year, next year! :)
There was one more thing but it got
inhaled eaten within minutes of opening the box! I did share it with Angie though. It was this amazing fancy Canadian candy bar. WOW is all I can say!
See below for the description of a Maple Syrup Butter Crunch Bar!
This is a Canadian classic. A Butter Crunch toffee middle made with demerera and maple covered in a white chocolate and almond bark .
Jennifer, thank you so much for this wonderful package of kitchen themed things! It was a delight to get to know you and be your partner!
Here are a few pics of what I sent to Jennifer. But please visit her blog! You'll love it!
See you soon!
