It's just a few days before Christmas now and I'm just getting my presents wrapped! Each year I get later and later at this. My kids are coming home this weekend so we're pretty excited that we'll all be together again this year.
We did not finish our flood home in time for Christmas but we do expect to move in January. We're waiting on some of our flooring to arrive. But - doing these final touches to it is a lot more fun than many of the tasks we were doing before. We have running water, one working toilet, painted walls, counter tops, quite a few cabinets in place and some flooring done. So nice to see it getting completed!
Here's a photo of my studio; cannot wait to get in there again!
I made my second batch of Christmas goodies last night too. I used to make at least 15 different things! This year; two! But it helps that we did a cookie exchange this year again.
I couldn't find my Christmas paper goods box this year so I just packaged mine in baggies! They're on the right. But the cookies are sooo good! If you like mint and an easy chocolate cookie try this recipe. I used both Creme de Menthe and Peppermint candies for variety.
My second effort is Oreo Truffles; it's the one thing everyone loves. If you've never tried them you should! Delicious!
Don't let my procrastinations make you think I don't love Christmas. It's my very favorite time of year; hands down. Besides the joy of being together as a family I see people out shopping and driving around with sparkly eyes and a ready smile and it truly warms my heart! What a wonderful time of year; I get kind of sappy over it!
Merry Christmas to each of you.
