Present Idea: Honey Dipper with Honey and a Bow


Giving unique gifts takes creativity. Not everyone has this talent, so here is a simple idea for those of you who are not gifted in this way.

Not only will you be giving a thoughtful, delicious present, but you will also be purchasing a fair trade, handmade product from Jordan. Remember that behind each From The Earth product is a valuable life. Be sure to mention this fact to your present receiver and watch their smile grow. 

 
Voila! You now have a thoughtful, unique gift.

Christmas Party Sale Wrap Up

Wow! The From The Earth store was buzzing with people all day long at our Saturday Christmas Party Sale. Lots of presents were bought; some of these presents were for others and some of the presents were for the buyers, themselves. 


Our most popular items of the day were our new earrings (they come in brown, red, or teal beads), 

 

our calendars (on sale on Amazon.com), 


and our camel figurines, 


Everyone left happy with beautiful gifts, yummy Christmas cookies, and hope that they would win the grand prize basket with over 100 JD worth of product.


However, there could be only one winner and in the end Wendy Meridian won the grand prize. She was so excited when we called her. She is planning on sharing some of the prizes with her friends. Isn't that wonderful? Congratulations Wendy!


Before closing out this post, several people requested the cheese ball recipe from the party. Here it is!

1 container of cream cheese
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp grated onion
1/2 tsp dill (or sometimes I use Za'atar instead)

Mix all ingredients together. Drop mixture onto plastic wrap and form into ball. Allow at least a few hours before serving so that the flavors mix together. It can be made up to a month a head of time and stored in the freezer too.
