Getting Ready for Christmas Now Part 1 - Frozen Cookie Dough

Hi Friends,

I ran across the idea for this yummy treat on other blogs last year and I thought how perfect to make frozen cookie dough for Christmas gifts for the neighbors and my children's friends.

My children love cookies and are always asking for me to buy ready-made cookie dough just for the convenience.  Schools sell ready-made cookie dough for fundraisers and it is so tempting for the kids.
I know my three kiddos would be thrilled to received a package of cookie dough so they could bake just the quantity they want at their convenience.

There are several reasons I like this idea so much.  First is because between Thanksgiving and Christmas our home is laden with sweets from kind gift givers.  How nice it would be to receive something we could put into the freezer and enjoy later when the holidays are over.  Second, this is a budget friendly gift that doesn't add clutter.  How nice is that!  Third, this is gift preparation I can do well in advance and it will free my busy holiday time up for other fun activities. Fourth and finally, this is a gift my children can make for others.  My children are all teenagers and require only minimal supervision in the kitchen so they can do this all themselves for their friends.  And they can clean up my kitchen too when they are finished!!

When giving frozen cookie dough as a gift, be sure to double wrap the dough.  Write the name of the cookie and the baking instructions on a gift tag included with the dough.

It's time to start thinking about Christmas now.

Happy Homemaking and Blessings,

Holiday Catalog



Hi Friends,
I know I'm showing a lot of Scentsy stuff lately.   I never want to be pushy about this (or anything) but when I am excited about something, I love to share it! People have been telling me to share Scentsy products and opportunity with you all more, so I'm really trying to NOT come across as being too forward.  I would like to show you the great new things Scentsy has come out with for the holidays.  If you are considering some Scentsy items, warmers with wonderful holiday fragrances and the sweet buddies for children, for the holidays, would you please consider getting them from my Scentsy site.  It is truly a blessing to me and my family and I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate YOU. 
Could I ask one more favor please...If you know of someone who is looking for Scentsy, could you direct them to me as well.
Thank you so very much.
Love and Blessings,
Nancy
