BIG Holiday Wishes


This is going to probably be the extent of my homemade gifts this year.  I used a stamp from the Simon Says Stamp kit and stamped it in Gumball Green.  I stamped the "BIG" in red, cut it out and popped it over the "BIG" in the green.  Tied some twine on it, mounted it on some DP and it's a done deal.  Can y'all tell how much of a slacker I've been with my decorations on stuff this year!  LOL!

Inside that jar is the most delicious, sweetest, and non-fattening (YEAH, RIGHT!!!!) stuff you'd ever want to eat.  It's Candy Cane Peppermint Popcorn.  Carol (Our Little Inspirations) mentioned that she was going to be making some so I found her recipe on Pinterest and added it to my "Recipes I've Made" board.  Check it out......it's yummy in the tummy for sure - and I'm not big on eating sweets at all but that stuff is GOOD!

I'll see everyone back here on Thursday evening.....
Thanks for stopping by..........

Oh, yummy! I've never seen that recipe. I'll have to travel to your Pinterest and get it. I wish I wasn't big on eating sweets..truth is, I crave them. Ugh!

Love your label with the two-tone "BIG".

oh wow, so i knew you'd made the decoration, but it turns out you made the POPCORN, too, and it's fancy gourmet candy popcorn! pretty awesome, missus!!! (ps: i'm happy to pick up the slack on the "not eating sweets" thingie for ya!!!) :) :) :)

Awesome gift idea and it sounds delicious. Love the way you did the "Big" - very creative and so cool looking.

It is classy packaging, Lynn. You haven't slackened at all. CAS wins for me every single time.
Love,

This sounds so delicious. At least you did make some handmade gifts. You wanna talk slacker...come to my house! I used to spend a week making cookies, treats, etc to give away. Got to be a 2nd job at this time of year (and mind you I was working then too). Now that I have the time (?!) I don't have the energy or motivation. Loved the way you did the label with the dual colors of your letters. So pretty. Will see if I can find the recipe. Merry Christmas, and TFS

Bonnie said...

A super label for this BIG jar of popcorn. I've gotta go check out that recipe! Popcorn's good for you. Right?

Carol L said...

WOW! What an awesome container of that "Candy cane crack" as I call it because it's so addictive! I'm not big on popcorn, but I'll be quite happy with a big bowl of this stuff!! I have to bag mine up right away before I dig my paws into it!!! LOL The UPS guy who got a bag of this stuff politely said thank-you, but I'll bet he'll be surprised when he realizes it's not just plain popcorn! LOL

MiamiKel said...

I"m back!! Wow, I've missed so much! But glad I got to see this yumminess - not sure I"ve heard of candy cane popcorn but it looks fun!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Wow- this is so awesome! We are big popcorn eaters- My DAD especially! I am going to have to look up the recipe on Pintrest!

NanaConnie said...

Oh, Lynn, did you say you were sending peppermint popcorn to all your blogging buddies? Is that what I read? How generous of you to share your talents with all of us that way! LOL Love the whole idea of special popcorn as a gift and I may have to CASE that one. I always make fudge for everyone but flavored popcorn would be a terrific addition to the goodies.

Davi said...

Sounds pretty yummy Lynn and I love the way you did the label! Very clever cutting out the part on the big to make it multicolored :)

Jessi Fogan said...

I can't look at one more recipe...I'm stuck in my fat pants already just from thinking about cookies :) Haven't even made them yet! lol This is a fabulous gifty idea - and I love the simple treatment for decoration!

Shawna said...

Love it Lynn! I am still in Christmas denial, but I did make a very poor batch of fudge this morning.............

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

I'd be over the moon happy with this fab gift! X

Nancy in Iowa said...

Adorable tag! Love the red/green BIG! Genius! Pure GENIUS!!! The insides sound yummy! What a fun gift. I wish I had the energy to do something like this. I'm almost dreading the annual baked goods that will soon be arriving from a couple of neighbors. I TOTALLY cheated and bought hand-made jam at the Farmer's Market this fall. SLACKER!!!
Have a fabulous Christmas Lynn!
