Homemade Christmas- 2011 Version!

Last year, I made a lot of the Christmas gifts we gave! I canned apple pie filling, hand painted plates to serve it on, and packaged it all up... I loved them (And I hope their receipents did too!), but this year I am pregnant with twins and just don't have the energy to can, paint, etc. I have been using Pinterest to find some cute ideas, though!

Whipperberry posted this lovely idea of making HOMEMADE vanilla. Like the lovely ladies on Whipperberry, I always wondered what the cooking show hosts meant by "good vanilla" for baking! I guess now I know :) I just ordered my vanilla beans & will be making this homemade vanilla for some gifts. I am so excited to try it out! Whipperberry also posted the lovely packaging they made for the bottles!

Another lovely idea I found on Pinterest was this awesome quick bread in a jar! My friend Hannah was awesome enough to make the label for me!! I am only wishing the recipe called for vanilla so I could package both together. Oh well ;(
