Goodies Galore...

Hi peeps! Wow, December 1st already... where does the time go?

Did you ever make a "little something" for someone and then discovered you have to keep up the new, so called, tradition? Yepper... That happened last year. I was looking for inexpensive little treats or goodies for the little ones and found some free digital designs and some that I paid just a few dollars for. Now, Being on a very limited income free is awesome and a million blessings to the designers who offer their hard work for free.

Anyway.... on to the fun stuff! Last year I made these little "Magic Reindeer Food" packets for the kiddos and they went crazy!! Sooo... I had to make them again this year so as not to dissapoint them.  Rule #1: Don't give them out early, like I did, or the moms will come and try to lynch you. (giggle) I found this free ready to print goodie from Rhonda Sue at CraftyMumz Creations 
I mixed up some food (quick oats and colored sugar sprinkles) and put a small amount into small plastic bags. Yeah, I forgot to take a photo of that part but you get the idea. The quick oats and the sprinkles cost less than $2.00 at my favorite bulk food store and I had enough for 20 packets of food and plenty leftovers for breakfast and cookie decorations. Hey - ya can't beat that with a stick!

The next batch of goodies I made are the "Reindeer Poop" and "Elf Pillows".  Yessss, everything is edible! The bag topper for the Reindeer Poop (pretzel balls from the bulk food store) also comes from Rhonda Sue and can be found here
Seriously... you have to go check out all she offers.

The bag topper for the elf pillows (mini mini marshmallows from the bulk food store) is from Dustin Pike  Unfortunately I don't see this on his site anymore. Ooops... am I allowed to say that! Doesn't matter, he still has lots of goodies available.

Well peeps, I gotta go now and make candy for us grown-ups. I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen and I thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
