I'm always looking for a few new cookie recipes around the holidays. This usually means spending a few hours looking at recipe after recipe, and coming up with very little. So this year, I've decided to host a Virtual Cookie Swap.
Date: Friday, December 4 - 6, 2009
Where: Right here!
How: Mr. Linky will be at the bottom of my post that day - all you have to do is add your link!
Spread the Word: Please feel free to add my cookie swap button to your blog, linking back to this post. The more the merrier!

In the meantime, I'll share with you what we're giving my in-laws and my parents for Christmas.
The original plan was to use a black frame with a double white matting. That would have been insanely expensive, so I was thrilled when I found a couple of frames at Gordman's for $15-$17 that had the right number of spaces! I found the letters at Hobby Lobby when the unfinished wood items were 50% off, so they were only $1 each, and the photos were developed at Wal-Mart. The total cost for both gifts was less than $50!
If your mom and dad are like mine, and my in-laws, and are running out of room to put all those fantastic knick-knacks, I recommend doing something like this. Every year, we plan to retake photos so there are always updated photos of the grandkids.
I really like the way they turned out, so I even picked up another frame yesterday to make one for us!
