Over the last few years we have made;
Candles---most turned out fairly ugly, not doing that one again.
Bath Salts---looked very pretty, very easy to make, didn't keep any for myself, so I don't actually know how they turned out.
Herb Soaps---turned out very pretty, and were fairly easy to make.
Liquors---this was a huge hit, but some didn't turn out great. The Kahlua was absolutely perfect. I need to make another big batch, but feel weird going into the liquor store with my big pregnant belly
Jar mixes---very economical, esp. since you can find the jars at goodwill, garage sales, etc.
This year we are thinking tye die...I need to get started soon. Baby is due Christmas week, so even though we are usually good about doing lots of shopping by Nov. this year I want to have it all done, and everything wrapped so I don't have to stress about the perfect Christmas, you know?
Let me know if you want any of the recipes, etc. I'd be happy to share.
