This Friday I’m having a Celebrating Home and a Gold Party at my house so I’ve been busy getting ready. And by busy I mean baking and cleaning and a little bit of crafting in between. Here’s just a little glimpse of what I’ve managed to do in between all my “housely” duties:

Here are the Christmas Countdown blocks that I managed to finish in time for today, December 1.

I took an ordinary candle, brushed it with Mod Podge and rolled it in Epsom Salt just like Remodeling This Life did. It was super easy.

Tonight I tried a new recipe for my upcoming party. The hubs and the girls gave them their approval so that’s good. Somehow I managed to resist the temptation to taste them. It helps that I have Weight Watchers in 2 days and I’m fresh out of flex points. lol

I may be MIA for the next few days but you can bet that I’ll be back in full swing in time for our Creating Christmas Blog Fest starting Monday, December 7.

  2. You have been a busy bee! I am loving it all but I seriously want a bite of that dessert. Yum! I’m not sure how you resisted that beauty. Have a great party!

  3. I’d love to make one of the count downs do you have any way of explaing how you made it? I want to do one for my kids for when my husband deploys again for a full year. I think having something like that they could change and see the days fly by would be a big help. Please and thanks hon!
