Blog Hop - My favourite handmade
Holiday Tradition

I'm super excited about the Etsy Greetings Team Blog hop.
What a perfect way to follow the links and learn all about everyone's Holiday Traditions...

Id have to say mine would be baking.

having the house smell of baked goods during the festive month is always wonderful!.

I always find time to make shortbread and fruit mince pies to offer when visitors come by.
I also love Greek Christmas biscuits Kourabiedes.

It can be a little dangerous having them in the house as I can eat SO many!!
...and who can say 'No' to Chocolate Truffles and Rum Balls.

This year im planning to make some Mini Bundt cakes - these are made with olive oil and are light and moist.
Wrap in brown paper bags with red ribbon - an adorable gift for your collegues or neighbours!
