Pine Cone Bird Feeders

I decided that my granddaughters would enjoy making their gift to Mom & Dad and Miss Carol. So the pine cone with peanut butter and birdseed seem to be the best project for a 2 & 3 year olds. They had a ball. Not sure if they ate more of the peanut butter than actually got on the pine cones, but thats alright.  Even though I tried telling them this is a surprise for Mommy…

Ghiradelli Holders

I had a question from Dixie about my Ghiradelli holder that I posted last week. So Dixie here are some more photos. I hope this helps. Send me an email if you have any other questions.

Pretzel Jars

I gave this jar to Danelle who has been cutting my hair for over ten years. She always…

The others I make are much smaller. Since we have a screen door on our front door, I put ours as…

Ghirardelli Holders

I used the Peppermint Bark. This went in my goody trays that I make as gifts. This year I put all kinds of different little candy holders…
