Happy Holidays!

I love a good project so when it came time to come up with a craft for preschool friend gifts I decided to make cookie jars. I got the idea from Stacy Claire Boyd's blog who got her idea from Bakerella's blog. I varied mine slightly by changing the colors to red, green, and brown, and omitted the pecans from the recipe for the classmates who have nut allergies. I created my own labels and gift tags, printed them on adhesive paper, stuck them to the jar and voila....homemade cookie jars! I included my husband and boys in the process and we had a great time assembling the jars together. We had so much fun working as a team this may be our new Holiday project for every year. The jars got a great response from all who received them and the cookies were super delicious!

Christmas Giveaway!

I have to admit, I have a slight obsession with Christmas cards! One of my favorite things about Christmas is opening the mailbox each day to see wonderful pictures of my family, friends, and their beautiful children. So in honor of one of my favorite Holiday traditions Busy Bee Paperie is hosting a Christmas Giveaway! Simply send us an image of your Christmas card ( and we will post them here on our blog. We will pick our favorite card by December 21th. The winner will receive a set of these cute flip flop note cards from Boatman Geller. Since we could all use a little summer fun in the middle of these cold winter months, you will definitely brighten a friend's day by sending them a cheerful note on one of these cards! This foldover note features a striped pattern of orange and white topped off with a pair of navy and pink flip flops at the bottom of the card. There is room for you to add a name in the center of the card. This item makes a great gift for friends and family. We can't wait to hear from you and see all your great Christmas Cards! Happy Holidays from Busy Bee Paperie!
