Weekly Craft Challenge Week 12

So this weekend has been very Christmas themed! Saturday morning was all about
Christmas shopping, trying to get super organised and I'm really impressed with what we've managed to get done.

Saturday afternoon was time to make some presents. I've started the process of making bourbon vanilla extract. We all a bunch of cake lovers and when I found out how easy this was to make I knew I had to make some. I had some lovely glass bottles in the cupboard that would look lovely. You literally cut the vanilla pods in half and pop into the bottle and pour over some good quality vodka, leave for around 3 months, shaking once a week. The smell from these pods was amazing!

They're going to look so lovely with festive ribbon and instruction tags. :-)

Today was hands on again making cross stitch Christmas cards -

Two down and around 10 to go!

I also made another little card for my dear Gran.

That's all for now :-)

  1. So excited about your vanilla essence, could you use the same technique with other flavours?

    Loving the cross stitch and super impressed with your organisational skills!
