i made very few new years resolutions, but one i did was to be a better friend. i have a few amazing friends that i treasure, but i feel like i need to show it more.
if you haven’t noticed, i have wonderful sponsors on my sidebar —–> over there. the sweet folks at garnish let me choose some goodies, and i decided to use them to bless my friends – thanks garnish!
it took me forever to decide what to get! they really have great products at very reasonable prices. i ended up getting some berry baskets, mini milk jugs, and a sheet of kraft labels. but i was also eying lots of other things, like the birch bark paper straws and the wooden utensils – so stinkin’ cute!
my sister makes some amazing cookies. every time i make them i think of her. they are so super yum! i accidentally made this batch a little too crunchy, but a zap in the microwave solves that!
i lined each berry basket with strips of parchment that i cut to fit.
6 cookies fit just perfectly!
then i just folded up the side of the parchment paper
and tied in a bow with some extra thick yarn i had on hand
i’m sure the sheet of labels i had could’ve been printed on, but i decided to skip the its-too-hard-for-me-figure-it-out part, and just hand wrote on them.
and this chilly weather calls for warm drinks. my childhood winter holidays were filled with the smell of wassail (pronounced wassle, like waffle) that my mom would leave on the stove all day to make the house smell yummy. wassail was the perfect easy drink to give with the cookies!
the tiny milk jugs held a quart of wassail, probably 3 or 4 servings worth.
and i had a little for myself :)
thank you garnish, for helping me show my friends a little love!
