I was pleased with how some of my pictures turned out from the Moss Mountain tour Mom and I took. You can read about the tour here.
Since Mother’s Day was the following Sunday, I decided to make Mom some notecards from my photos.
I should use “I” loosely. Actually my sweet hubby did most of the work. I did take the pictures! I did some of the layout, too. And the cutting–I did the cutting!
Check out the back. That was my idea.
Cellophane wrapping was my idea, too.
Everything looks better in a cellophane bag!
I was pleased with the way the cards looked in the little bags with envelopes. Mom loved the cards, especially since there was nothing like it in the gift shop.
Surely you have some photos worthy of becoming a gift. Start printing! Just don’t forget your cellophane bag.

It’s not too late to make Christmas goodies. I made Cranberry Pistachio Bark for my hubby to take to his Christmas party at work.
It was very easy and very yummy!
I’m convinced that you can glam up anything by placing it in a cellophane bag!
Recipe: Okay, it is not really a recipe. It’s just instructions. I doubt you really even need that!
Line a 10×15 pan with waxed paper. Be sure to let the paper hang over the edge.
Melt Almond Bark. I used the vanilla. You can use chocolate if you like.
Spread the melted Almond Bark into prepared pan.
Immediately sprinkle with chopped pistachios and chopped dried cranberries.
Let it sit until set.
Cut into pieces.
Package in cellophane bags. (optional-only for glamorous gifts)
I was inspired by Ina Garten’s version of this bark. She added apricots to hers.
It’s not too late! Head in the kitchen and whip up some Cranberry Pistachio Bark for your friends!
