My mom and I made cookies on Christmas. We did this every year when I was a little girl. Between the two of us we must have 100 cookbooks. We narrowed the selection down to Cocoa Crinkles, Lemon Madelines, and Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies-this recipe called for 20 oz of chocolate! YUM!

Christmas Gifts

I am so excited. This is the first year I've made almost all of my Christmas gifts. The only person I didn't make something for is my boyfriend. He's not so much into the bag thing. I just have to finish a stegosaurus for my neighbor's little boy and the gifts for my mom. I took these pictures with my phone, so they are not the best. Here's what I've made so far:

Now to start on the cookies...

Getting in the Christmas spirit

I've been distracted by Christmas. I needed something for the tree so I made a topper out of some left over fabric. (The teeny little star from Target wasn't cutting it anymore.)

That wasn't enough. I've seen all these tutorials for tree skirts and had to make one. I stopped by Fiberologie for an emergency purchase. Instead of my usual turquoise and orange I knew I needed some red and green for this one.

Yeah, little tree.
