Frosting Cookies!

I thought I share a few pics real quick of the "top" cookies from each of the boys. As you can tell we had quite a varity from the joker to a "gingerbread man" santa! The boys all had fun trying to make the "best" cookie.

Here is a picture of them all frosting a table full of cookies. We play Christmas music and (almost) all of them wear their santa hats. Afterwards we all had some home made Christmas candies and drinks and then the older boys went out and played in the snow while the younger ones and I went and watched Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.
I hope everyone has a wonderful MERRY CHRISTMAS & a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Presents all around!!!!

Hi ya girls! Hope you are all done Christmas shopping, wrapping, and baking! I know that I am not! In fact as I am sitting here (in PJ's) I am getting ready to do my annual Christmas frosting of the cookies with my nephews! In fact, I should be getting ready, but wanted to get this up real quick as I do not know when I might have a spare minute for a while. I still have wrapping to do yet!!!!

Any way, these are some decorated tins that I did and filled with homemade snickers to sell at the craft fair. Each are filled with 5 bite sized pieces of heaven! You almost can't eat just one, but then they are so rich one will sometimes do! These tins are getting harder to find so I am going to be sure to be stocking up during the year.

Christmas Cards

Ok, so I am going to post 2 times today! I just wanted to share my Christmas cards with you. While nearing the end of making them I remembered to take a quick picture. The main idea for this card came from Jamie Sears on SCS. I just added some dimention and some more color in the words.

It's the Holiday Season........

Well girls, it's the holidays! I for one LOVE this time of year! I love to bake Christmas cookies and candies, watch all those old Christmas favorites, and listening to Christmas music, oh yeah, how could I with my job, I've been working quite a bit (because of Christmas). After Christmas things will slow down and I will have time to come into my little room and play, but for now I just pass by and wish I some more time.

Here below is one of the things I made for the craft show earlier this month. It is one of the "Peeps" jars made with peppermint peeps! I know it's hard to tell, but they are star shaped sprinkled with peppermint. They are really good. Got them from Hy-Vee for all you mid-westerners out there wondering.

I wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS & a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving last week. I don't know about all of you, but it was crazy here last week so I did not get much done other than eating and shopping! LOL Here is my latest creation for another upcoming Name Frame Stamp Camp. Both of my Classic Blacks are looking purple even with new ink refills. I think it is time for new pads!
