November - Fall for Me!

Wednesday, November 12 2014

What happened to September and October? Totally flew by! Are you getting geared up for the holidays coming up? As we head into Thanksgiving what are you thankful for this year? I'm thankful that despite losing a pet I was blessed with a new one! She's a feisty Doberman and it didn't take long to fall in love with her. Lots of energy, oh my- I had no idea how playful she can be and tough at the same time! She's pushed me over a couple of times already! We're taking classes so I can learn all the commands and hopefully be able to tame her a bit. So, in between the doggie classes, I'm starting on a few of my crafty projects along with several other things I have going on. How many of you purchased a fake pumpkin for Halloween? Don't put it way, paint it gold or silver, add some fall leaves, a bow and POP you have your Thanksgiving centerpiece! You'll have to visit my #Pinterest board... ... also check out all the great pins for making Christmas cards and gift wrap ideas! Here are a couple of recipes on my board I'd love for you to try: Pumpkin Spice Blossoms -inspired recipe from Betty Crocker 1 batch of your favorite sugar cookie dough, or mix, 24 Hershey Pumpkin Spice Kisses, unwrapped 1 teaspoon cinnamon/sugar mixture, for sprinkling Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make dough as directed and scoop into 2 mini muffin pans (should make 24 cookies). Sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mixture and bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are golden brown. Let cool for about 3 minutes, then gently press a pumpkin spice kiss into each cookie, sprinkle with a little orange decorating sugar- totally optional! Lets not forget the Hot Apple Cider... try out this Crock Pot Hot Spiced Cider- 1 gallon apple cider 1 cup brown sugar (or a little more to taste) 1 teaspoon whole cloves 2 cinnamon sticks & 1 orange sliced, heat to perfection! I'm excited to be selling Avon at a few flea markets and craft fairs this year! I've stocked up on products and am looking forward to meeting some new customers! I've made some nice gift wrap bags to give away to those who purchase over $20. I have to send a big shout out to my online customers! Thank you for ordering online! Don't forget to request a free catalog with your order - especially if you like having a book on hand. I'd love for you to share it with a friend! Thank you again for being my customer and taking time out of your busy schedule to read my blog. I pray you have a blessed Thanksgiving with lots of leftovers to enjoy! Thanksgiving Prayer... For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends.~Amen ~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
