Treasured Treats This Christmas ~ CLEVER & NICE !

I am so pooped! The best Christmas pressie for me this year would definately be a Good-Nite's Sleep.

Have I told you that it's a blast to soap against the weather? (over the weekend, my orange slices a.k.a Sunshine Tangerine refused to set despite sitting pretty for more than 6 hours! gggrrrrr....) Such fun I had - gift-packaging, making deliverys and gobbling down "One-for-One" pizzas with the kids on route in the car.

I am still marvelling at how I have so far survived being on my feet almost 20 hours a day; for the last 2 weeks. Driven by humbled pride and a sense of satisfaction perhaps? to be able to create gifts that will bring joy and love to the intended recipients during this festive season of love and giving.

A cheeky dose of my favourite cassis liqueur, now and then, helped tremendously in calming those cranky sleep-LESS  nerves; I must admit! 

Amongst my surrounding madness, a girlfriend very cleverly picked out items from my haphazard photo albums on Facebook to put together personalised hampers for her loved ones. I handcut gable boxes, lined them with matt gold tissue and topped with a festive ribbon and gift-tag.

Aahhhh.... N-I-C-E ♥

The kids have packed their "Strawberry Milkshake" scented soapy favours, leftover from MeiMei's birthday party, into their lil travel bags...I am so looking forward to my mini "Strawberry Milkshake" get-away with the kids and Grumps during Christmas.

That's a sweet treat I will treasure and reminisce in years to come.

What treats have you chosen for your loved ones this Christmas?
