My Everyday Life: Week 46

Here’s what this past week looked like – My Everyday Life Week 46

This week we’ve been stuck indoors because the smoke from the fires has made it unbearable to be outside.

My throat has been irritated by it.

So, we spent a lot of time laying low at home.

That means I’ve done some baking.

Hippie Banana Bread turned into muffins!  Took about 20  minutes in the oven at 350F.

Made 12.

We accomplished a lot around the house while we were here.

I’m most excited that my closet looks a lot like this again.

Homemade Holiday Gift Party

Host a Homemade Holiday Gift Party with the help of Nugget Markets! Find the recipes to sugar scrubs, infused vodka and vanilla extract on Shutterbean.com!

 Last year, my friend Sonia and I put together the idea of a Homemade Holiday Gift Party as one of the auction items at Cooper’s school.  Earlier this month I hosted the party at my house with the help of Nugget Markets. Let me show you what was involved in hosting the party!

It all started with a flyer! This is what I made for our auction party so people would sign up.

Questions to ask yourself before planning a party:

  • How many people can we accommodate?
  • What items should we make?
  • How long does it take to make said items?
  • Do items need time to set/cure?
  • What instruments/tools do you need for the party?
  • How many items will everyone leave with?
  • What will they take their items home with?
  • What will be on the grocery list?
  • Food/drink?
  • What does my space need to welcome guests?

If you’re working with a friend, you can easily divide and conquer!
