10 Delicious Homemade Spice Blends to Spice Up Your Christmas Gift Giving Christmas is a time when budgets are stretched, people are busier than usual, and we're all looking for some type of unique gift idea that will be a hit. In my cooking adventures, I often mix up spice blends to use for certain recipes. A few years ago I hit on the idea of making large quantities of one of my favorite spice blends from that year and giving it as Christmas gifts for neighbors, co-workers and friends. Even if you can't cook, if you have a recipe it's easy to mix together quantities of ground spices into a mixture where the sum becomes greater than the parts. If you want to make the gift a little more special, you can include a recipe using that mixture. The most important thing about the success of this as a gift idea is probably matching the spice mix to the cooking style of the recipient. Salt Blends One of my first ventures into making spice blends was Rosemary Salt, which I made to re-create a salt blend I'd purchased in San Francisco.

How to Make B Vitamin Water for Natural Energy Similar to electrolyte drinks, vitamin water plays into a public that is trying to become more and more aware of their health. Its sleek packaging and appealing names make it sound like the perfect combination-you get vitamins while drinking a healthy dose of water. Again, like electrolyte drinks, there’s not really a whole lot to it. Vitamin water actually contains 13 grams of refined sugar in each serving, which equates to 32.5 grams of sugar in a bottle. Regular Coke, which has 39 grams of sugar, isn’t a far cry from that. A regular can of Coke also has 140 calories, while a bottle of vitamin water has anywhere from 100-125 calories. Vitamin B complex This water focuses on the vitamin B complex, which is comprised of 8 different B vitamins needed to carry out vital functions in the body. B1 (Thiamine)-Thiamine helps generate energy from carbohydrates, is involved with DNA and RNA production, and nerve function. You will need… Directions By Claire Goodall

DIY Personalised Clock – A FUN way to learn to tell the time! I found this fantastic idea over on Pinterest here and just HAD to make it. I’m keen to start Master L (5yo) on learning the time so I thought this was a FUN way to get his learning juices flowing! This would also make a wonderful gift too! You will need: 22cm clock (9 inches) Glue (I always use a glue gun, but craft glue would work just as well) Screwdriver Clock battery Scissors First take a photo of your ‘subject’. Make sure you get the whole ‘subject’ in the shot from the tip of their finger to the bottom of their toes and take the photo front on. The ideal pose it to have one finger pointing straight up with their arm close to their ear & the other arm down by their side. I printed the images on both a 6×4 and 5×7 size photo. Now using your screwdriver, take the front off the clock and keep the screws in a safe place! You can pull off the seconds hand at this point, but I didn’t bother. Now cut your subjects out of the photos carefully all the way around. Sand Footprint Craft

Cutlery Tray for Jewelry! I LOVE Jewelry, real jewelry, costume jewelry, all of it . . . almost as much as I love shoes! I have a small jewelry box for my "real" jewelry. As much as I'd love to fill a wall with gold and diamond jewelry, we can't afford that :( so as far as my real items go, I only own the classics. A small pair of diamond studs, a pair of peal earrings, a pearl necklace, a cocktail ring, a couple of white gold bands, and of coarse my wedding band and engagement ring!! But it wasn't my "good" jewelry I was having a hard time storing, it was my costume jewelry I couldn't make room for! So while at walmart, I found some bamboo cutlery trays for $10 each! Second: I decided on what jewelry I wanted where and Lee started screwing in the hooks, which immediately cracked the back panel. Last: We screwed the tray to the wall using an anchor and a screw (super simple). I organized my jewelry by color, and style. Then I stored my brighter more colorful jewelry together, Total Cost: p.s. Linking to:
