Final Spoilers (#4,#5,& #6)

(#4) Zippered pouches from Amy Karol's first book:
(Message to peeps on my gift list: These are the only two of these I made for giving, so unless you see your name on one of them, don't be dissappointed when I don't give you one!)


I made a few subtle changes to the pattern and it took me a few tries to get my process down (these are my fourth and fifth ones), but in the end I was really pleased with the outcome. Among a few other differences, I added the embroidered names and an extra layer of fabric to make these a tad sturdier. I also made my pouches a little smaller (mostly just width-wise) than the pattern specified.

(#5) 4-ingredient sugar scrub (very similar to this one I made awhile back):


And finally, (#6) Pinched Orange Macaroons:

Well, sort of. The recipe was not followed exactly. What I did was first make almond paste from scratch, and to this I added a few drops of almond extract, then orange zest and Grand Marnier to taste. Then bake, cool, and drizzle with melted dark chocolate. I think most of us agree that orange+chocolate=crazy delicious, right?
