Tidings of Comfort & Joy

I've officially jumped on the Holiday bandwagon !

After designing a jewelry box worth of new baubles,
I've spent the last week decompressing
& working on holiday goodies!
~No finished pics yet as some of them will become gifts~
(& also because I haven't actually finished any of them!)

I've already whipped up the first batch of Christmas'ish cookies
{Cranberry Thumbprints}

I even got to enjoy them with the Revamper
& a spot of Peppermint tea :)

She popped by at the most perfect time!
The recipe is from Dec. Martha Stewart mag
(which I somehow ended up with 2 copies of
...I must be hording all things craft related!
).
{Recipe here}
Ok, so I can't find the recipe becuase the Dec. issue isn't up on the website.
Arg! If you are desperate for it & can't get your hands on the Dec. issue let me know & I'll send you the info!


The cranberry jam is soo yummy I was eating it by the spoonful. I might make some more & keep it for toast. I saved a tad of it & put it in my pancakes for dinner!
(yes, we had Brinner tonight: breakfast for dinner! Tyler's fave!)
******************

In other current events: If you ever stumble in here & I'm going on about signing up for the Durham Art Walk again....Please stop me !! Not to be a complainy pants but it was bad! SO bad that I canceled for Sun. :( Not sure what the deal was...great location & Heather was awesome. Just no shoppers this go round. Luckily the trunk show at Blo rocked it out & was one of my most successful trunk shows to date! Go figure!?!
(set up at Heather's for the Art Walk)

hmmm....what else??
I'm updating the shop this week & have snuck in a few pieces already.
The Muse is finally up for grabs!

Along with...
~Love Struck~

& for all you Capricorn babies...
~Birthday Girl~
...every year she was the same story..."Here's your birthday/Christmas present!" they'd say with a smile on their face. Well not this year! She was changing her birthday & having her party well before the holidays so she got her fair share of gifts!

heheheee...I'm really not bitter ;)

What are you waiting for!?!
A bribe?
How about a cookie :)
Smoooches,

You are a lady of many talents! Those cookies look divine!!

"complainy pants" I love it and I'm stealing it unless you have it copyrighted of course!

Sorry the art walk was a bust, but happy to hear you did well at Blo. Whoever lays there eyes on your work and doesn't buy is not very smart in my book.

I can't wait to get done with our remodel here so I can have a few bucks in my pocket...I will be heading straight over to your place for one of your goregeous creations!

So...not exactly sure, but it sounds like you have/had a birthday, if so happy birthday sweet friend! I know all about the combo gift being a December baby...sigh!

BTW...all of your creations are fantastic but I'm swooning over that cuff...fabulous with a capital F!

Have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving!

Love and hugs,
Karyn
