This coming year I’d love to experiment with different ideas to bring folks together for a little kitchen fellowship. One thought I had was to put together boxes of goodies for you that contain most of the items you need to host a small, meaningful gathering with a craft or kitchen-y project. I have a box theme in mind for January/February but wanted to do a “test run” first.
So I created ONE Cinnamon Ornament Kit Box!
1 homemade potholder
1 jar of cinnamon
1 package of bags
1 spool of ribbon
2 star cookie cutters
6 blank notecards + envelopes
1 cinnamon ornament recipe card
several ideas for snacks to make during the gathering
Gather a few friends (or folks you’d like to get to know better) and bake cinnamon ornaments together.
While the ornaments bake — enjoy meaningful conversation. As a group you could use the blank cards to write notes of encouragement to people in your community.
Once the ornaments have been baked and cooled they can be packaged in the pretty, clear bags, tied up with ribbon, paired with a note card and given away to a neighbor, friend, or stranger. (Of course participants can also keep the ornaments if they’d like!).
Leave a comment below, and in your comment say hello/introduce yourself to the person who commented before you. Share a little bit about what’s bringing you joy today. (If you can’t leave a comment – email me at email@example.com and let me know. The comment form has been acting up for a few people lately.)
I’ll randomly pick one winner on Monday, December 14th and will ship it out to you that same day. (This time around it’s for US residents only). Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book; that’s how I’ll contact the winner.
