I made a gift similar to dcjitterbug's gift.  Smiley My boyfriend just started playing guitar, so i figured some guitar strings, picks, and notebook would be good for him. He told me that he uses my picks all the time  Wink

Beaded snowflake x-mas tree ornaments:


Chocolate truffles in boxes that I made out of the thick glossy magazine covers:


Close up of the candy (I made the candy yesterday.  6 flavors -- coconut, mint, orange, almond, hazlenut, and kaluah -- all rolled in coconut shreds, crushed candy canes, crushed nuts, powdered sugar, cocoa, etc.):

I got those stones at Michaels in the bead section.  They have some that have holes in them already (for sewing rhinestones onto clothing or something).  I put stones that were the same shape back to back and tied them together with some sturdy fishing line and then repeated with another pair so that all 4 stones were tied together with a little strand of knotted fishing line.  I cut the line off at the ends and repeated until the bracelet was big enough to fit on my wrist.  You can finish it off with a clasp (also from the bead section in Michaels).  I varied the shapes of the stones (the stones @ Michaels come in a variety pack) so it would have a random look.

I originally saw a bracelet like that on vacation in Iceland.  One of the most beautiful women I've ever seen had a bracelet on like that and she looked like she'd stepped right out of Vogue. (long black hair, charcoal eye make up, some outrageous chartruse toule dress -- people in Iceland are very glam). It made me really want a bracelet like that so I sought out materials for one as soon as I got home. 

If you can't find the beads @ Michaels you can probably order some rhinestones online that have little holes in them.

Thanks!  These cookies are amazing.  My boyfriend ate an entire batch in 1 sitting.  Hope they work out well for you.

Ingredients:
1 c sugar
1/2 c margaine
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
cinnamon sugar

1. cream together sugar and margarine in a bowl
2. beat in egg and vanilla
3. combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.  belnd well.
4. shape dough into balls about 3/4" in diameter
5.  roll in cinnamon sugar to coat
6.  set cookies 1" apart on lightly greased cookie sheets
7.  bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins or until the edges are lightly browned

* Note: If you are making a vegan version of this recipe, replace the egg with 2 tbs of corn starch and a splash of soy milk.  Included this info because a lot of my friends and i are vegans.  I made the vegan version of these cookies but I am sure they are good either way.

dcjitterbug's cinnamon cookies are also known as snickerdoodles (hehe). I love making them and the recipe makes so many! I've tried quite a few recipes for these and some aren't as good as others. but I liked this version  Smiley
