Only Four More Days.....

I cannot believe Christmas will be here in just four more days. I have been so busy getting ready and cannot believe my last post was on December 7th. This year seems to have gone by so fast!

My niece and I spent the day baking some cookies. We made some awesome Oatmeal raisin cookies with chocolate chips and walnuts....one of our favorites and some good old Toll House chocolate chip cookies. Want to know how to get nice and puffy cookies? A friend of mine told me to hand mix the cookie dough and it really works and also gives you a little work out, lol! We still have some brownies and a couple cheese cakes to make.
































I am so glad to have a short work week and a long weekend, I could use some time off to relax and to get back to doing what I enjoy....creating! I have been jotting down some new designs and will be getting back to making some patterns.

I am also working on my first tutorial to share with you. I wanted to post it before Christmas but will have to wait until this weekend to finish it.

I will try not to wait so long to post again!
