Last minute hostess gifts.

Hello everyone and happy Christmas Eve!!!  Are you traveling today or spending the day/evening at your house?  We're having family over tonight so the girls and I will be busy today cooking the ham and potatoes and few quick appetizers.  My mom and sister will be bringing some more food to finish out the meal :)  I think of the whole holiday, Christmas Eve has always been my favorite.  There's always so much excitement and wonder and the kids have so much fun. 

Last night we were over at my cousins and I took her a bottle of wine for a hostess gift.  To dress it up a bit, I made a hang tag for it.

Her tree and decorations are all in these bright colors so I made the hanging tag to match.

Tomorrow we'll be over at my mom and dad's and this is her hanging tag :)  (if you're reading this mom, please act surprised when you see it, thanks)

I think Papertrey Ink makes a die specifically for this, but A) I didn't have it, and B) it was just as easy to trim one out myself.  For no more often than I make something like this, I really can't justify the cost.  I can't believe I just said that!  Hahahaha!

I want to wish you all the happiest of Christmases.  I hope you enjoy your holiday with family and friends and that Santa brings you all you asked for :)  I'm so grateful for each and every one of you.  I'll be back in a couple of days :)

    Ashley is giving some wine as a couple of gifts, I think I will show her this...even though I know I will be putting it together, lol.
    Enjoyed a nice family get together at my FIL with Waynes family. But I still had to cook.
    But the next couple of days no cooking for me, as we are invited out for dinner :)
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas.
