Since we are all in the Holiday Spirit from our Blog Hop... I thought I would share with you some pictures of my annual cookie swap that was held today... It was suppose to be yesterday but the 17 inches of snow (which caused our Metrodome to collapse) made things a little interesting...
Each year I gather some of my most dear friends and have them over to my home (this year) or we gather at the studio. Each gal rsvp's her recipe to avoid dups. Then we each bring 6 cookies for each person that attends. We each bring one extra set to donate to someone close who is going through a trying time. This year our set will be heading all the way out to CA! I can not wait to hear the response, as it is always a BIG surprise for the receiver!
I didn't get photos of everything (didn't even get of my amazing display of yummy food!) but this should give you a little bit of an idea of what we do... See if you can guess the winner of the Most Creative Packaging? (Oh yes - Prizes are a MUST!!) Enjoy!
