There are some ideas I couldn't share before Christmas as they were gifts or to be eaten Chistmas Eve~
Things I loved making or baking~
The snowglobe cake was inspired by Aimee at Twigg Studios..if you are not familiar with her..you have to go meet her♥
I made the centerpiece using cookie cutters and stencils..( a kit) from Fancy Flours.
It's called The Winter Village set.
We don't have a TJ..so I loved this idea
Last..but not least..after years of making Alicia Paulson's felt ornaments in sets of threes..I completed the last set.I did not make a set for myself this year..
I'm thrilled that the girls..even though our tastes are so different..like these♥
I boxed them up in boxes I favored..:)♥
Not everything I attempted turned out..
I know..we don't usually trust people who say that.
You would have to see my face.;)
I had to throw out..
My snowflake cake.
Every nook and cranny stuck stuck stuck ..even with careful prep.
What a hot mess.. lol hot mess..new lingo;)
I am going to try again;)
My sugar cookies/shortbreads..to paint by hand..
as you know the icing never set..
So those were two projects I had looked forward to..that did not pan out.
Peanuts in the big picture.
That's a wrap for 2019..Christmas edition;)
Enjoy the rest of the year.♥
Have you all watched Call The Midwife Christmas Edition?
Oh how I love that show.♥
A newfound love for paper chains♥
I had to come back to add a very special footnote with pics..
I follow Val she charmed me from the get go with her kindness..intelligence and candor.
You may remember a while ago..I made a little lantern Christmas living room..
well look at hers.
She made it for her mom and dad for Christmas..♥
I would rather you read her post on it and all the special touches she added.
When I first saw it..before Chrsristmas:) I showed Jacques and he said Oh her place is so cute:) LOL men.. he didn't put 2plus 2 together and realize it was a lantern house.
But I concur..her place IS so cute.
Look at that furniture♥And do read about all her special touches.
She's a doll.
