I have been a busy crafter this last month!!! I was on a mission to handmade something for everyone in my family this year. So I made 13 lavender/rice heating pads and a few hand warmers, three scarfs, one with a hood and pockets, three pair of wrist warmers, and a hat. We also had a big home cooked dinner and everyone contributed! We had tamales, pork and sweet spiced rums and raisins, enchiladas, homemade salsa and guacamole, black beans and Spanish rice. We made black berry cobbler (blackberries came from my garden this summer) and homemade whip cream and sugar cookies. It was a good time and having family close and the wonderful white winter day topped it off. I'm looking towards the next year with my heart and eyes wide open!
