I'm Here!

So with all of the holiday hullabuloo blogging has fallen by the wayside lately. We had Brett's whole family at our house over the Thanksgiving weekend, which made for some happy chaos and much dog walking. I made the cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie *with gingersnap crust*, and mini cornbread muffins *with whipped honey butter.* We have had leftovers. We have rebelled from leftovers and ordered in Chinese.

We have put up our brand new Christmas tree and decorated it with home made popcorn garlands and not home made candy canes (we spent the money on the tree and have nothing left for ornaments!). We have decorated our house with garlands and lights and bows. We even started a Christmas puzzle which I spent FOUR HOURS unable to step away from last night.

We have not so much cleaned up...

But I'm here and I'm being artsycraftsy!

Upcoming posts for December include:

1.) Microwave Peanut Brittle!
2.) The Unveiling of the Upholstered Ugly Pink Chairs
3.) Adventures in Sewing Holiday Placemats
4.) Holiday Wreath Alternative Door Decorations

Stay tuned...
