So I was asked yesterday if I done any kind of craft or homemade goody for Christmas gifts this year as she knows I usually do something along those lines. Well, I must admit that I was a tad busier than I like to be right about the time the holidays was approaching so NO, I really didn't do anything crafty or homemade except for one gift for a friend but I do want to share it with you as I thought it turned out really cute!
I saw the idea of taking sprinkles and filling clear ornaments with them and making a little baking gift so decided to do this for my friend. The gold basket held ornaments with sprinkles, sugar cookie mix, dishtowel, hot chocolate, chocolate candy, peppermint, cookie cutters and etc. I wrapped the basket in cellophane,I tied a wooden spoon to it and a cookie cutter and it turned out really cute.
So now it's your turn. Did you whip up something during the holidays for a gift?
Okay now for a hard question. Do you STILL have chocolate left over from the holidays that you are hiding?
Well, no chocolate here...doesn't last long enough to hide but I did find a box of candy canes in the pantry! It's not chocolate but I use them to stir my hot chocolate!
Now that we are in the New Year is there a project that you are working on or are you still trying to tidy up after the holidays?
For me, I'm all cleaned up from the holidays and I ALWAYS have a project going on!
Right now I am trying to work on my outside shed that HOLDS ALL MY JUNK! It is about to kill me cause I am trying to declutter, throw away and label boxes as I clean. I do pretty good UNTIL I get to MY DISHES! You all know that "My name is Cindy and I'm a dishaholic! When you don't know what you have because you have too much....then that's your sign that something needs to GIVE!
I am NOT going to show you EVERYTHING but here's a glimpse of what I am dealing with..and believe me when I say a GLIMPSE.
My man told me that they have a show on television about people like me.....BUT at least it's not in MY HOUSE right? At least it's outside in a shed. I will show you pictures of when the declutter is over with! LOL!
What book are you currently reading right now? Or if you are currently doing a Bible Study would you share what?
Right now I am reading a small short book that I've read quite a few times over the years but from time to time but I need to read it again!
The Bible Study we just began is going to be so good too!
Matter of fact in my first week "this" jumped off the page at me.
Has anything sparked your interest from Pinterest lately? Well, I am a OFF and ON kinda Pinterest gal but recently this sparked my interest!

Isn't this adorable? My granddaughter Kyleigh would look adorable in this little outfit. She might just have to have one of these cute outfits!
And since we are just chatting...I am so excited that we've actually had a little cold weather in my neck of the woods and that we've got to build a fire in my fireplace!Matter of fact I am warming by it as I write!
A friend of mine sent this image to me as she knows I love coffee but I do love this sign too!
I do hope that you all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend and I'd like to end with some food for thought.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
