Baby, It's Cold Outside!

And what better way to warm up than a cup of a Family Favorite! Here is a hot chocolate mix (scroll down in the post for recipe) and that yummy Julie Ebersole chocolate popcorn (again, scroll down in post for recipe and instructions). Makes for a perfect combination! It is sooo cold here in Michigan. I know I should expect that, since it's winter and all, but truthfully, my bones do not like winter anymore! But I am thankful amongst all the snow, ice, and family travels, everyone arrived to their destinations and back home safely. The containers are ones my daughter saved for me. They had little melt in your mouth puffs for little ones starting to eat. All different flavors and our grandson loves them...he can pick them up by himself and that is a big deal!
JustRite sets used for the hot chocolate lid and the tag rim are from What's Cookin' and Christmas Joy respectively. I'm still using Christmas sets for winter creations! These sets offer so much more than just utilizing for the holidays...gotta love that!
JustRite's Something Sweet Set is where the adorable mug image is found! Perfect! Circle and oval Spellbinder dies are used for cutouts.
Closeup of the mug image. I Copic colored and added Dazzling Diamonds to the snowflakes and around the blue oval. Looks frosty! Ribbons used are from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
Here are the Copic colors used. I loved how this food gift came together. And to be able to add the perfect embellishments, well, makes it JustRite!
Hope you and your loved ones experienced the best Christmas holiday ever! The new year is around the corner, ushering out 2009 and welcoming 2010! Thanks so much for stopping by and take good care!
