Hello, friends! How’s this week going? Are you having fun? Are your projects and recipes turning out? Are you on to Plan B or even C already?
I snuck a some early morning moments and made a couple art journaling pages yesterday with some old Christmas scraps. Including vintage mailbox letters from my grandparents. They were still sticky!
Hunting through old Christmas scraps reminded me that I have a bit of the Grooviest Christmas Wrapping Paper Ever, acquired at that estate sale.
I haven’t decided what I’m going to make with it yet, but something more than an art journal page to show it off well!
I added Oatmeal Scotchies to the repertoire this year. My mom makes them every year and I recently found out Joe really likes them.
Howevah…I tried subbing in Luke’s gluten free flour to the Nestle recipe and we ended up with more of a cookie crumble aka. ice cream topping/fancy granola. Even though I ended up baking them almost twice as long.
p.s. That amazing swirled ornament is from the Finland tree.
So, plan B: Luke has an awesome crumble/topping and I’ll remake the batch properly to get some cookies for Joe.
Obviously a gluten-free/kitchen chemistry novice.
The Fantasy Fudge – Best Fudge in the World – came out as stellar as it ever does. I’m telling you, just buy the jar of marshmallow creme – it’s so much better than the supposedly fancy touristy fudge made on marble slabs!
Don’t be a fudge snob! ;) (But good luck finding a jar on the shelves this week.)
The other thing I “made” yesterday was 363 photos at Meijer Gardens Christmas & Holiday Traditions display!
Dozens of Christmas trees? Ornaments? Handmade from all over the globe? Check, check, check!!! All my favorite things in one spot?? Yes!!!
I hope your merry making is going well. Don’t stress friends. It all works out every year one way or the other! XOXO
More of the Christmas tree photos tomorrow!
