Guest Post: Christmas Holly Cookie Tray by Haniela’s

So, did you know that newborns take up, like, ALL of your time? I consider the day a win if I brush my teeth AND put on a new shirt! To make things a bit easier while the wee one is still…well…wee, I’ve enlisted a couple wonderfully talented bloggers to share fun recipes with you! Today, I’m super excited to introduce by bloggy friend, Hani, from Haniela’s. She is the real deal – she makes GORGEOUS, elegant treats (like these lovely Winter Doll Cookies, Poinsettia Meringues, and beautiful Angel Gingerbread Cookies). Plus, she makes video tutorials. I mean, how awesome is that? She’s got some serious skills!   Jennifer is one of the sweetest bloggers I know. But you probably already knew that. Thank you for having me over today Jennifer. This is the last weekend before Christmas. I’m sure many of you are finishing decking the halls  for the most magical time of year. And perhaps some of you are behind(like myself) and are looking for last minute ideas for desserts or a pretty edible gift? […]

She is incredibly funny. Like, seriously one of the funniest bloggers I know! I look forward to reading each and every one of her posts. ***This post was written when I was still preggers (and posted late by me), so let’s hop in a time machine and pretend that I’ve still got a bun in the oven, shall we? I’ll catch up on my sleep while we’re there!***   Hi there! My name is Hayley from The Domestic Rebel, and I am so happy to be guest posting for Jennifer today! Jennifer and I met through this huge, insane blog world and instantly became bloggy BFFs because we have one thing in common: we’re awesome.
