Wahhoooo!!! I hit the big 500!!! I can't believe it..but it has been so much fun being in blog land getting to know each and everyone of you and seeing and meeting new faces...and getting new followers..I love it!!...Sharing ideas, recipes etc..I have found some really neat recipes that I am trying this christmas..just found another one from Karin at countryfolk keepsakes that I can't wait to add to my baking tomorrow...they sure look tasty..Thanks for sharing Peanut..:)The above photo are mugs that I got at walmart for a $1...so I will pop those in to my bags that I make every year to give to the neighbors my hubbys co-workers etc..more photos down below of what I will be adding to the bags..
I purchased these too puppys at walmart and sliced open their backs and added a velcro opening..I made little rice packet pillows that you can heat up and put back in to the puppy and velcro it shut..great for little ones to take to bed to keep them warm..I made these for my little nephews...I tell you the velcro part was a bugger but they turned out pretty well..Ron Smith the guy that had all the metal stuff at my last show gave me this idea..I just have to figure out a better way to add the velcro or put snaps in place of it..would be great sellers I suppose...but will let the nephews give them a shot and see if they are worth doing more..
I made more hot cocoa mix on tuesday..gotta put on a topper and the directions on how to mix it up...
I also made more christmas jam...I kept a jar for me and use it every morning..yumm..:)
and last but not least I made gingerbread coffee/tea creamer..got the recipe from a fellow blogger but don't know who...simple and easy...would love to know how it is..but I don't do coffee and I rarely if ever drink tea...
I made another coffee cozy..this one is a beefed up mustang..I love the old muscle cars and these remind me of the stickers you got in the gum packets as kids and you could mix or match them with a monster driving the car...does anyone remember these...I used to draw the cars..my brother had a whole slew of them on his wall..
and I finished up this hat/scarf set for Angie of love the prim look..she and are in swap mode and she is getting these and I am getting a doughboard/tray to fit on my stove..I can't wait...I am also getting my 2 prim cabinets this sunday..Steve called to tell me they are all nicely distressed and he is dropping them by...I can't wait to decorate them up for the holiday and then with all my regular everyday stuff ...well I have to package up my little sisters ever growing package and get hers and 2 others mailed off today and hope they make it by christmas..I still have more stuff to make and baking to do..so gotta keep on trucking...I do love keeping busy though...and watching some christmas shows in between...My all time favorite christmas movies are: Christmas Story, Young Pioneers christmas,(you must see this one), the waltons homecoming, and the house without a christmas tree..that one is an oldie..but found it on DVD..anyway..we are having over 2 guys from Mikes work tonight over for dinner..the menu, huge porterhouse steaks, potatoes augratain(?) new recipe..brussel sprouts and for dessert and edwards key lime pie...they are the best..these 2 are single and a good home cooked meal will be good for these 2...Gotta run and pick up some stuff at the grocery store and mail off packages..have a wonderful day everyone..:) and thanks for stopping by...:>)
