There is just something about making a batch of homemade potpourri to simmer on the stove all day long in the winter, right? I have a recipe that my mom always likes to use with cloves and ginger and cinnamon. I can smell it now just thinking about it. I am going to have to make up some now.

Mmm, these look great. I love the smells of the holiday season. The spiced cranberry magic potpourri looks like it might be my favorite of the lot. The others look nice too, but I am not a fan of the smell of cloves simmering. These will make a very nice, personalized gift.

What a very good project . It doesn't take much, it's extremely easy and it has all of my favorite scents. I am going to make up some for me and for my daughter and my sons family. It will be something special that they won't get from some one else.
