I think I may have found the perfect gift for neighbors this year. Energy and money are always running low (what's new LOL) which makes this gift idea perfect.
Using either a store bought or homemade cake mix (don't forget the directions), place it in a cute bag (of which there are so many options!) and add this poem:
I hope you will excuse me for giving you this bag,
I did the very best I could with the precious time I had.
I should have known from the start when the eggs fell through the shopping cart.
I set aside a day to bake, the only day I didn't wake.
Then the flour fell off the shelf, not on the floor but over myself.
I tried again with no success with cake mix running down my dress.
I've given up! its yours to bake, I hope you enjoy it for goodness sake.
There you go; easy, simple and clever! Thank you craftbits.com for the great idea!!
