Ornaments

 A friend had given me a little ornament kit a few years ago. I wanted to finish it before Christmas

but was too busy. I was able to finish it a few days after Christmas.

I had ordered a photo ornament of my Grandchildren the middle of Dec. I just received it.

I have taken down my tree, so both ornaments will be saved for next Christmas.

Wishing everyone a blessed and safe New Year.

Christmas Crafts

 I haven't sewed in so long but decided to make some snowgirls, pattern by "Chestnut Junction". I was rather tickled how they turned out. I also made me some beaded garland for my three tier tray.







I love watching "Six Sister" videos on you tube. Especially their instant pot recipes.

They have a new video out ," 10 of their best Christmas Cookies." They are all

quick , fun and easy. I wanted to share this with you. I think I may have time to make one or two of 

these recipes. Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!!!!

Annual Chirstmas Cookie Bake

 For the last several years me, my daughter and grandaughters, sisters, nieces and friends have met in WV at our Farmhouse to bake cookies and watch Christmas movies. Plus we have lots of food and dips made for the weekend. Such a fun and relaxing time. We bake cookies, do a small craft and have a gift exchange. What fun and awesome memories.

A little Christmas around my house

This has been the first year since my mom passed away 4 years ago that I have had any interest in decorating for Christmas. This year I even put a small tree in my bedroom. Other years I went though the motion for my kids and grandchildren, but this year I finally enjoyed decorating. I even bought one of those green ceramic trees with lights that probably all houses had several years ago. My mom always put hers out at Christmas, so I got one in remembrance of her. Here is some of my decor.

Pin Keep and apple cake

 Since I have retired from my school nurse job, I am having fun catching up on some crafting projects.

I finished a pin keep pattern by, Joyce Reed.


I live near an apple orchard so I love getting fresh apples and making apple pies and apple cakes.

I am sharing an apple cake recipe. I use 6 cups of apples instead of the 3 cups. I bake it in a 9" x 13"

pan at 350 degrees, for 45 minutes.

I made her Candy Land Christmas swag today using two $1.00 Christmas trees from dollar tree. Supplies are from dollar tree and walmart with the exception of the roll of deco mesh from family dollar.
