I thought with Chinese New Year as my new deadline, I'd have plenty of time. Unfortunately, it didn't really work out that way. It seems as Rain Dragon gets into toddlerhood she is even more time-consuming than as a baby. In a good way, of course, but it did make time for additional projects slim. In the end, both Sasquatch and his sister had to help out (okay, maybe they made everything and I helped out. sigh).
But, we made yummy things! Over Christmas, we received a fruit basket with an enormous amount of oranges. Thanks to Martha Stewart, we made those oranges (as well as some lemons and grapefruit) into candied citrus peels:
I thought this was an appropriate gift for the Lunar New Year, as oranges are lucky in Chinese culture.
I'm particularly proud of the packaging. My gingerbread baking was very useful for all the labels:
as well as my holiday card, too:
Hope it's sweet year for everyone!
