goodies arrived this week from Tammy and they are wonderful. Look at what I got!!!
The textile item is a great snowman stitchery which now sits on a cabinet shelf, wooden item is the Joy to the World sign, lighted item is a wonderful smelling jar candle, smell good item is a bag of Lemon Rose Creations (you put 3 T. in a sink of hot water and man it smells sooo goooood!!), three ornies are a snowman head, candy cane and Santa cat which has found a home on my tree and the wild card item is a great little Annie doll who also found a place on my tree. Tammy, thank you so much, I sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness and love all my items!
Well, yesterday my g’daughter and I tried making some cinnamon salt dough gingerbread men but hmmmm, while baking, they turned almost white. Don’t know what I did wrong but I am not pleased with them so I am on the lookout for a different recipe that will keep my gingerbread men looking like gingerbread men!! LOL!!! We also made a few jars for her to give to teachers as gifts. Very easy and fun to make. Click here for instructions.
Oh, I almost forgot! I purchased myself a Christmas present….well, actually two Christmas presents. I have been wanting a snowman from Arnett’s Country and just happened to come across their Christmas Open House the other night. I tried to purchase a Santa and a Snowman from the open house but she sold out of ALL of them on the site. So, after many emails back and forth, I called her to see if she had anything left and she was finishing up on a Santa and a snowman. I purchased them, site unseen while on the phone. I still can’t believe I did that without even looking at them but I have never seen any of her items that I didn’t like so I took a chance. Take a look……
Did I go wrong? I don’t think so, I am very pleased. So the tweaking continues and my mantle got another makeover to add these two pieces. I will definitely be saving my money so I can start a collection and get a snowman and/or Santa each year!!!
Have you wrapped all your presents yet? I have not wrapped anything yet so that is what I will get off of here and do now. LOL!! Take care and remember the reason for the season!! Hugs, Chatty Kathy
