Family Favorites + a Giveaway!

christmas-food-gift-reduced

Today I'm excited to share this fun gift set called Family Favorites. It was accepted for publication in the December 2009 issue of Crafts 'n Things magazine and is on newsstands now! I used one of my very favorite sets of mystampBOX stamps called Neighborhoods to create this embellished cookie mix jar and matching card. Try using your stamps to jazz up premade packaging especially at holiday time. It will save you lots of time and make your family and friends feel extra loved by your handmade touch.

To celebrate we are giving away two free copies of the December 2009 Crafts 'n Things magazine that has the cookie recipe and more details about this gift set. For a chance to win, leave a comment here on this post about your favorite handmade gifts to give. For a second chance to win, click over to the myStampBOX blog and do the same thing. We'll accept comments until Sunday October 18th at noon EST. The winners will be announced at the mSB blog on Monday October 19th. Good luck!

Your creations are darling! I love to give handmade baked goods in cute cello bags with a decked out tag and ribbon. I also like to make personalized stationery for family and friends!
