I suppose this post is a bit of a cop out, like on TV shows when it ends up being a clips show because the writers all took a week off. Well I didn't take a week off but I had two no good posts that had to be binned. One recipe was great but when I looked at the photos on the computer I hated them and couldn't bring myself to put them out there and the other post had great photos but in the end I had to be honest with myself and admit the recipe wasn't right and I'm not putting a recipe up that isn't going to be successful.
Seeing as I'm back at work and don't have access to decent light until Saturday I didn't want to leave it two weeks with no post so I thought I'd post a little round-up of some past posts that would be great handmade gift ideas for the festive season ahead. There's also lots of old photography in this post so that might keep you amused. I would highly recommend the coconut and almond millionaires shortbread or the granola.
