Homemade Granola Gift Giving

i thought the previous post was the last one
for 2011, but i had to share this little gift
i made for my son's teachers.

i made some granola at home using this recipe.

added my personal touch with these diy tags. 
used sticky back canvas and stamped letters
including the date it was made. 
stamped the sides using
these beautiful stamps.

of course, i had to try it with a little bit of yogurt.
happy creating. happy holidays.

now it's time to
enjoy all that this holiday season brings. 

best wishes for you and your families.
