Another homemade Christmas gift

Placed the dry ingredients into a quart jars in layers.
Placed a ribbon and a die cut circle with embelly that Lee gave me on lid.

Wrote the directions for adding ingredients and baking directions. Hope this will make a quick and easy treat for my friend.

Alicia's Count Down Challenge

Made this card for Alicia's Count Down Challenge at Whimsy Doodle.

Making some gifts for Christmas

Making hot chocolate mix, chex mix and cookies for friends. I am trying to give a few gifts this year that doesn't come from the store. :) Made my sweet granddaughter a memory book of the things we did during my last visit in Olathe. I have made her several and she seems to enjoy looking at them. I want her to remember all the good memories we had together. Think this may be something she will cherish as an adult also.
Have lots to get done before Christmas! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful 2011!!

Inside layers of previous album

This is the inner layer of the album.
This is the second layer. Sure hope she likes it!!!

Box album and gift card holder

My best friend's daughter is getting married November 13 and I made this box album for them.
Black, white and red are their colors so I used them.
The album has three layers and will hold 30 pictures. I hope to take some candid shots for her to use. Sometimes I think the pictures that are not posed are the best. Alicia, I used the gift card holder you gave me.....thanks sweety!

Autumn is a great time to think of all the fruits of our labor. Thank goodness for farmers and their bounty!

An Important Project

A dear friend of mine lost her battle with cancer 12 years ago. She was great at embroidery and her daughter gave me a table cloth that she had and never started. I am not very good at this but my plan is to get this finished before Spring so it can be on my dinning room table by Easter. My library has a Sit and Stitch time twice a month and I plan to go and sew on this so I will get it done. Wish me Luck!!!!!!!
