This year I will fulfill my wish to deliver all our gifts before December 15!
I'm just waiting for our personalized Christmas cards to be ready this Friday (November 23) & starting next week we can start delivering our gifts.
I wanted to support Pinoy entrepreneurs. I have an organic soap basket w/ Bench hand towels. I was also able to order soy candles in a special lavender-mint blend & my all-time favorite baby powder scent.
I work hard to personalize my greetings so this Friday, Saturday & Sunday I'll be busy writing on our Christmas cards.
This year has been wonderful because I visited so many new places, was entertained by so many charming hosts & I get to show my appreciation to everybody during this holiday season.

I have a new friend who bakes delicious cupcakes & from her I'm ordering Christmas tree cupcakes. I had some delivered to my inaanak Carmina & to Dawn to say thank you for being my guests on Kris Tv.
I'm now sharing my cupcakes pic with all of you.
For someone who loves to cook at home like Kris, the thought of having a personal herb garden is an irresistible idea. This is something that can be easily done if you put much time and thought into it. Herbs like basil, dill and thyme are so handy that they can be grown even small apartments or condo units, for as long as you have a spot that receives regular sunlight. Transport your herb pots to the kitchen when you need them for cooking or decorate the pot with native ribbons or wrapper for an added touch to your dinner table or party. The herbs emit a natural scent. Who knows, they can also be a good conversation piece for you and your friends. Here are some tips for planting your own herbs at home:
