Merry Christmas!

It’s almost Christmas Eve… who needs a drink?

My husband hosted eight of my son’s friends for a cookie-decorating party this week. For the adults, he made batches of a “Christmas Cocktail,” which is served in a glass rimmed with crushed candy canes. To decorate the jars, I made polymer clay snowman heads that I first spotted in Holiday with Matthew Mead. I was thrilled to see that the very talented ornament makers at Swirly Designs were generous enough to provide a tutorial for making the adorable snowman in a really great free, downloadable magazine: Amy Powers’ Inspired Ideas. I only wish I had added eye hooks to a few of the leftover snowmen I have so I could turn them into ornaments. Next year!

The “Merry Christmas” label is a free download at Wee Life, though I altered the colors a bit. The tall jars are from some awful health drink my husband likes. And we have a ton of baby food jars because our elderly cat eats nothing but baby food, spoon fed to her. Poor thing!

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas!

(and here’s the cocktail recipe)
