(This is the Christmas card I sent out last year - Mary Engelbreit - I'm so glad I saved one!)

You Are Cordially Invited
To Take Part In A
Christmas Cookie Swap
Hosted By
Cute Stuff Inside
Sunday, December 14th

Bake up a batch or two of your favorite Christmas cookies
(hey, make 3 or 4 batches, who's counting?!)
Invite your friends and family over
Take lots of pictures
Write up your recipe
Enjoy Your Cookies!
Then, on Sunday, December 14th
(or a day or two before if necessary)
post everything to your blog
Next, check in with Cute Stuff Inside to find links connecting you
to everyone who's joining the party
Print out all those recipes that look yummy!

To join in, leave a comment telling me that you want to sign up for the Christmas Cookie Swap with your name and blog address. I will put up links to everyone who participates. Maybe there will be Christmas music - if I can figure out how to do it. :) You may even want to offer a fun holiday giveaway like I'm doing. As a matter of fact, everyone who signs up has a chance to win this fabulous prize :)

Remember, The More The Merrier, so, if you can, let's share the fun with everyone by putting up the Christmas Cookie Swap icon on your blog with a link (it's the red one above with the Mary Engelbreit card in the center).

Okay ladies, start your engines - I mean ovens! :)

Let's make this holiday a little more SCRUMPTIOUS!

As promised, here's a photo of all the wonderful goodies I received from my Polka-Dot and Rick Rack Swap partner. Look at that haul! Santa couldn't have done better himself! Janet, thank you ever so kindly.

Okay Frannie, you can wrap your doll up in the Christmas quilt now. Sharon, you've got competition! :)

Count me in! I'll participate for sure. But I'm not making many cookies this year. I've decided to make more candy treats. A few cookies will be made, but not many.

Hi Marsha (and Frannie!)
I'm so glad you like the polka-dot goodies! It was fun and surprisingly easy to find polka dot and rick rack decorated items! And the little quilt and angel towel were quick and easy to make. Now I just need to get busy and make more!

Please enter me in the Peppermint contest! I'll post the icon on my blog when the hectic weekend is over. I think I've been pretty nice this year!

WOW you did make a haul. Janet did a great job. I love everything.

I wanna play! I was thinking of doing this anyway! Thanks!
Oh and I'm going to make peppermint caramels. Do those count?!

Hi Marsha, I am in and will post tomorrow pictures of my cookies...although I am taking them into work on Monday, so there will be no people pictures, I hope that is okay. I probably will just post 2 recipes though.

Hey Marsha- I'm all posted up but no recipes right now. I'm beat! But my pictures and descriptions are on my blog. Go check it out!
