The Christmas Eve Edition- Part I

There’s always silliness abound on Christmas Eve. For some reason the dizzying excitement of holidays mixed with the frustration of having to duck to the supermarket to grab forgotten cream makes for very silly people. We’re having a little bit of a silly day here at Rose Cottage, but we’re also being very serious and sensible as we rush to finish homemade goodies for the family.

Before we get to the Christmas Eve baking rush, I’d like you to turn your eye to this link. Scrunchies. Are we ready for them to make a come back? On one hand ‘yes’ because think about how easy they were to make! This time next year we could whip up hundreds of them for our family and friends. But on the other hand ‘no’. While there might be a slight temptation to have a matching scrunchie/culotte combo again, I think some fashion trends are best forgotten.

Can you guess what we’re baking? All will be revealed in Part II.

labels

I made some labels this morning in Illustrator using free Christmas vectors available here from Blog.SpoonGraphics. Even though I just had to draw a rectangle, apply a brush and add some text, I am proud of my efforts as I’m very new to Illustrator. I’ll share the finished product later on*.

I hope you’re enjoying your day whether you’re baking, working, relaxing or any of the other things that coincide with the Season.

*later on may be tonight, it may be Boxing Day, it could even be never if I forget to take a photo in all the silliness of the season!

    Have a wonderful Christmas.

    Sorry, I cannot guess what you are making because I have no idea what Treacle is.

    Thankfully the children are boys and my hair is a bit too short to tie up … otherwise I might be tempted by a little recreational scrunchie-making!!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. (I wonder if you were making gingerbread?)

    I say an emphatic no to the return of the scrunchie … they’ve had their time and we should let them be in history :)
