Merry Christmas



I am a little late but I hope you all had a magical Christmas. I have been so busy this year that it seemed to have rushed by leaving me slightly behind for at least the last few months. Sort of sad. so I am taking this week to catch up. Wish me luck. 

Kodiak and I by the tree. She's so cute in her santa hat.

My Wild Thing Bag or Tote or Whatever...











But I painted mine cause I couldn't find any fabric or the shirt I wanted to cut up.... But I think it turned out just fine.

OHHHHH I am MAD today. Fire---rrrryyyyy red hots angry monster kind of thing. Which is lovely cause I started the day so happily with a lot of christmas spirit. Wrapping gifts and listening to music from Elf. but now its gone and I am MAD. 

So instead of doing the 15 things on my list today I am going to make one of these bad boys....


maybe later i'll post it.

Hello


Okay I am bad at posts cause I am too busy this season... but I have made a ton of stuff... all of which I have forgotten to take pictures of. but here is the cutest thing I have seen lately... 



Other things I have made are.... Christmas cookies, I had an ornament making party, hand warmers, um ... new hair things. ornaments. I can't think of anything else. But I am super crafty lately.

Happy Thanksgiving


Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent all day cooking and I never got to post about Thanksgiving.  
But now is my favorite time. I totally freak people out cause I am super in to Christmas, I have to make up for the years that I didn't like it. I also work with little kids so basically I believe you can't work with little ones and not love the magic of Christmas. Plus do I have to mention all those sparkles? 


so here are some things I am excited about.....


Hot chocolate on a stick..... from here. I made them they are so much fun and really delicious. 


making these paper lantern ornaments...... from here


Getting my first real christmas tree with the husband.... but he's sort of a grinch so I'll have to bribe him. 


Christmas movies.... especially Elf.


And ornament making parties. I used to love the idea of a cookie swap but I am gluten intolerant so no cookie swaps for me.

Pumpkin Scones


I found this recipe on The Marvelous Miss Elena Eous Blog... 
it looked too good I couldn't resist. And since we are nearing Halloween I just had to make them. 


I had to adjust the recipe slightly since I am gluten intolerant... but they are yummy... really yummy. I sprinkled mine with cinnamon.... cause I like it. 

and mine are a little messy cause I didn't use a knife to cut them. 

Pumpkin Yum!!!
