A friend of mine mentioned that lastyear one of her friends gifted her 10 reusable grocery bags

I think that's a great idea!

I bought a pretty sheet at Goodwill a few months ago thinking I could make a set of matching reusable bags out of it. Maybe I can still do that and give it as a gift.

I've started making my list (ha, I sound like Santa) and am trying to do mostly handmade gifts this year. I've made and canned a batch of strawberry jam and I just bought apples yesterday to make apple butter with.

What's everyone else giving this year?

A friend recently gave me a box full of apples. Can you tell me how you made apple butter? I would LOVE to do that!!

I didn't get a chance to make it yesterday, but I'm going to do it today. Here's the recipe I'm using. Sounds super easy! (I love this blog too - so many good recipes!)
