December has flown by and Christmas is here!! It has been a busy month and I think all I have left to do is wrap a couple of gifts and buy all my canine friends a little something. At last count, I needed twelve doggie treats ...LOL!!! I’ll pick those up tomorrow after work, get a few things at the grocery store and then head home to prepare for our family get together on Christmas Eve.
I’m not sure I will have an opportunity to post over the next few days so I just wanted to leave a quick note to wish all my friends a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and say THANK YOU for your visits and comments. I have made lots of new friends through blogland and look forward to more friendships in the coming new year.
May God shower you with blessings at Christmas and all through the year!! Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope Santa is good to you!!!

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
