While everyone was here for Thanksgiving, we bought a tree, made some ornaments, and decorated a bit.
|Elda made this amazing blue guitar out of felt|
|I made a Nora silhouette ornament|
|A felt dahlia to top the tree|
|Our back door|
|My snowflake garland from last year|
|The tree garland from last year|
|Nora pretending she's a cat|
|Our first fireplace with stockings!|
Since it's beginning to get a little cold, I have been crafting some re-usable hand-warmers. I love this project because I can finish them in one sitting. :) And it's inexpensive, useful, and simple. Here are the ones I have started so far.
|I've been following some embroidery tutorials online, so I|
practiced some here. The lace I got a yard sale.
I've also done some baking for my classes as well. I made sugar cookies and my favorite white chocolate sweet potato cake.
|I took the saran wrap off, and it looked terrible, so here is a|
view with it on. :)
I have more ideas I want to start on, but I also have to get through this lovely stack of papers to grade.
At least it's cold and gray outside - today it even snowed a little bit, which was amazing! So now I'm off to my hot coffee and papers.
