Another Small Gift Idea....

I've really been absent, haven't I? Getting ready for Christmas has taken most of my time. We picked up our younger son from the airport on Saturday. (My family blog has more updates on that.) It's so good to see him. We haven't seen him in almost a year! Jake and Megan arrive on Sunday. I'll be even more absent the next couple of weeks I am afraid. Family time is a premium, you know?
Before Brian arrived I put together some tea and coffee mixes, made some cookies and candy and snack mixes and other little goodies. I have to find some boxes and get these in the mail so I can show you more of them. Here is a peek at one of the dips I packaged up.

A quick and easy topper was made using my new Top Note die from Stampin' Up. I absolutely "LOVE" this die. I've used it on SO many projects and I've only just received it. I printed the label on my computer. the directions are on the opposite side of the topper. There are lots of mix ideas on the internet. This one made 5 little baggies of Party Dill Dip- an easy mix of spices which you add to one cup or sour cream and one cup of mayo. If you're interested in this particular recipe, just let me know!
I'll be back shortly after Christmas with a peek at a new ODBD set!
Have a fabulous Christmas, friends!

Angel, Merry Christmas! I want to thank you for your wonderful blog - it's been a fun, fantastic year and though I didn't get to play as much as I wanted during your blog celebration, it was still so much fun! Your dill dip sounds delish - send the recipe please! :)

Take care dear friend...

What a great idea! I love making my own dip mixes and never thought that they would be cute enough to give them away. Think I'll start on these early and do some of the top note labels before I forget about them next year when I am trying to think of stuff to make! ...please send the recipe for yours - I love dill!
Thank you so much! These are really great!
