Christmas Cozy Jars ~ Almost FREE

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!
Christmas is almost here! And that means winter and cold are here too. These cozy jars will help warm you up though! And the price will make you smile.

Save up a few jars from the kitchen. I had a leftover mason jar, salsa jar and corn salsa jar. AND I didn't even have to pull the labels off
I used leftover yarn from other projects and crochet holders that fit each of the jars. I also grabbed some bakers twine and bells from leftover Christmas decor.
Wind the twine around the top of the jars leaving enough to make a bow and tie the bells to the end.
And your cozy jars are done!
 Place battery operated candles inside the jars for an extra glow
My new Rustic TV Stand makes for a nice collection of Christmas decor.
Once again, my helper was there to double check my work.
Thanks for stopping by!

The Lakeside Collection Gift Basket

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!
A few weeks ago I held a giveaway for one of five gift baskets from The Lakeside Collection and mentioned I would demonstrate how to create these gift baskets. Instructions are provided here but below are step-by-step instructions with pictures for creating your own baskets.

I chose the Curious Cook gift basket and once all my items arrived I set them out and got to work!
 Start with the biggest of the 3 Handled Bakers {green}.
Line with a one of the Terry Kitchen Towels. Place the towel inside so that the corners drape over the edges
Stack the next sized Handled Baker {red} inside.
Repeat the same step; adding a towel and stacking the last and smallest baker {yellow} inside.
Now push the red baker forward allowing you room to slide in The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook. 
Place another red towel within the yellow baker, add the Giftable Breakfast Delights - Fruit Crisp mix {can't wait to try this!!!} and then add the Bread Dipping Set and Gourmet 4 Compartment Seasoning Jar. Use extra towels as needed to prop up these items. Trust me, you'll have plenty!
Add in the remaining items, Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and a Serving Spatula. Again, use the extra towels as needed to prop up items and make the basket look full.
Add on some ribbons and bows and your gift basket is ready to go! Use cellophane wrap to cover the basket for easier transportation.
I had an assistant that was VERY interested in helping me! :) Good luck with your gift baskets!
