I know, I know, Thanksgiving isn't even here yet but I love Christmas and start doing things for it long before most people want to even think about it. My youngest daughter is the same way. Only she listens to Christmas music all year long.
Anyway, this is my new favorite breakfast treat....Spiced Eggnog Scones. So Yummy!!!! I picked up the mix at Safeway and its made by a company called Sticky Fingers. So easy and so good!!!
And here is a little Christmas card that I made using a SVG file on the cricut and then just some scraps and things that I had. I filled in the mittens, hat and pant cuffs with Frosted Lace stickles. They don't show up so well in the picture but add just the right touch to all the white.
So hubby was out of town this weekend quad riding so I planned lots of girl stuff for me. Friday night started out with a couple of girlfriends that I scrapbook with came over so we could watch the movie "New in Town" - I love this movie!! So after 3 bottles of wine and snacks at about 10 pm we settled down to watch the movie. Mind you this movie is only 1 1/2 hour long but we didn't finish until 1 am - we having too much fun and had to keep pausing it.
Saturday morning I went to a couple of craft fairs with Kendall and some shopping at Kohl's. We found some great jams at the craft fair and I bought the cutest little gingerbread girl candy dish. I will have to post a picture later of it. Such a cute idea and anyone could make it.
Saturday afternoon I met Amanda and a friend at our little museum where for this month they have an exhibit called "Schindler's List" (I loved this movie) and a local speaker who survived the holocaust. It was all very, very interesting. We are going back next Saturday for another speaker - a lady who is in our book club.
Saturday night was the best part. Not only did I get to spend the evening with my 2 daughters but there was Chocolate involved.
We went to this little Chocolate place down town that does Chocolate Fondue. It was so good!!!!
All that for only $20 - what a deal. They also have cases full of yummy looking desserts and chocolates...... I was in heaven!!!!
Needless to say that by Sunday I was exhausted but pleasantly so. Hope you had a good weekend to.
So I am the type of person that needs to have a clock in almost every room of my house including my bathroom. And I just happen to find this clock kit at Big Lots for $3.99.
So I bought it and decided to use it in the bathroom but first I had to decorate it to fit the beach theme we have in our bathroom. So I pulled out all the beach themed embellishments that I had and came up with a great little set of Studio G stamps that I had picked up to use in our Disneyland album. And I had some ribbon and an ink pad that matched the paint color and a sand colored paper for the background. I used number stickers and circles for the clock part.
As I was getting everything together I decided that I should decoupage the background paper so that it could stand up to the steam from showers. I also pulled out my chalks to highlight the dye cuts that I was using.
So here it is the finished product. I am super happy with it and love having a clock in the bathroom again.
I am still here, just super busy lately. The good news is that I have a job. Yipppeeee!!! The bad news is that I have a to-do list a mile long and I am trying to get everything done and organized before I go back to work. The last 4 months have been wonderful but I am ready to go back to work.
Our 5th annual Pumpkin Dinner was a lot of fun and the pumpkins turned out great. I was so bummed that they all molded before we got to light them for Halloween but I guess that is what happens when it's the end of October and the weather is still in the 70's. Crazy weather for this time of year.
Anyway, wanted to share a few pictures from Pumpkin dinner. The 1st one is of the treats that I made for every one's place at the table. They all got their favorite candy.
Here are some from the pumpkin patch:
And of course our finished pumpkins...
And here is one last Halloween card that I made:
Thanks for stopping by...
