4 more days till Christmas! Yikes! How fast it went this year. Still have shopping to do. Still have baking to do. Last week was a busy week. Between the kids school events, work and just trying to fit things in. Gosh, wish I had another week to work with. Been receiving some ornaments from the swaps I signed up for. Some beautiful ornaments. Such talented ladies out there. They are all hanging on my tree.

I also been sending out. Had quite a few to send out. Really enjoyed making them. This was one of the batches I sent out.

When I get a chance, I'll post some more swap pictures. Really need to get off this thing and get some things done. Will be busy making Christmas bark today and cookies. Lots of cookies! My tree is lite and the carols are playing.

Have a Holly Jolly Day!!

The week started out with a blanket of snow. Unusually for us. We never get any snow. Thinking maybe it'll be a bad winter.

Spent most of the week finishing up on some ornaments. Need to get them in the mail this weekend. Thinking of doing some more for our own tree. Some of them came out so cute.

Also going out this weekend will be my Snowman swap and my Secret Santa. Had fun putting together those packages. Something about picking out holiday items. There are so many cute things to put into the packages. Never have a problem making or picking something out. Just hope my partners like their packages.

Today I'll be baking up some cookies. Have a dozen or so plates to make for gifts. So need to get started on that. If anyone has any tried and true cookie recipes to share, would love to have them. I'm always looking for some different cookies to make. Off I go.......

Enjoy your day!

Turned out to be a beautiful day outside. Was able to put up some decorations and lights. The warmer weather does make it easier to do. Plus, that cup of pumpkin latte helped a bit. Which I keep telling myself. Need to stop spending on the little things that add up. Honestly, don't need the extra calories. But I do enjoy it so much.

Wanted to post some pictures. Cant. When I went to take them, my battery needed charging. So the pictures must wait. Been busy working on my swaps and some holiday decorations. Didn't have to spend anything this year on supplies. Had so much from last year and the years prior. Love those kind of projects that don't cost a penny.

Well off I go back outside to finish up. Wishing you all a good day!
