It’s December 1st! Bust out the Christmas tree, deck the halls, get ready to roast some chestnuts, and so on. I can hear the carols playing already. Although, I’m not as gung ho as my dear friend, Lindsey of Sweet Tweats, (you should totally check out her page, by the way), I have been putting a splash of eggnog in my coffee for a couple of weeks now and I am definitely looking forward to seeing my family for a White Christmas in the Northeast.
But what’s got me the most excited about the Christmas season this year? Crafting! I will be participating in my first craft fair! This is something I have always wanted to do. Admittedly, it has always seemed a little far out of reach and intimidating, but I’m doing it! I will be a vendor at the BluebonnetBazaar!
This little market will be taking place on Saturday, December 13th in South Austin. Everyday leading up to the Bazaar, I will share a post highlighting an item that I have made and will be available at my booth.
This post is dedicated to Day 1 of the 12 Days of Crafting: Blackberry Bourbon Jam! This jam is the perfect blend of tart, caramelized, spiced goodness. My apartment now smells like a bourbon distillery after cooking the jam down for a few hours. I even had a neighbor know on my door to let me know how great it smelled!
