Felt Bow Tie Pasta

In less than 5 minutes, I made 24 pieces of pasta. Super easy and I can't wait to see how they hold up against a two and half year old!

Cut a 1.5" felt rectangle. Trim edges with pinking shears.

Pinch felt and glue (or sew) together in the middle to form the shape.

More felt food to come...

Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

Create a super easy treat using left over holiday candy canes!

Unwrap your candies and lay them out on parchment paper in the shape of hearts.

Melt chocolate.

Snap a shot of your adorable assistant.

Spoon the chocolate into the hearts. Be sure to get every nook. We opted to use colored sprinkles we had on-hand but I would've loved to top these with silver dragees.

A personalized message from Santa Claus

I found a super cute site called Portable North Pole. You answer a few fun questions about your child like name, age, state, something they have been good at all year and a gift they will be receiving for Christmas. Next upload a photo of him/her and the site puts together a personalized video from Santa.

My daughter was delighted (and shocked) when she saw Santa had a photo of her in his book. We've watched the video numerous times (seriously at least 10 times just today alone).

Holiday Cookie Exchange

Every year I host a cookie exchange. So in my quest to create something new and fabulous, I stumbled across Eleni's. Oh my goodness! I've died and gone to cookie heaven. These cookies are works of art and I think I'd feel guilty actually eating one of these beauties.

Do you have a favorite holiday cookie? A recipe you'd like to share?
