hope you all had a delish Thanksgiving

I did it!! I made a delish Thanksgiving meal...  Some new things i tried this year... crock pot stuffing...turned out great.... brined my turkey... turned out great... made my own cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries.... turned out great. So all in all I am pretty proud of myself!!! Not to boast or anything... but i don't usually make the Thanksgiving meal... so YES i guess I am kind of boasting.

I also just found a AZ blog... that has THE BIGGEST BLOG ROLL I HAVE EVER SEEN... I am so excited to check them all out.... go to

So hope you all had a great Thanksgiving day spent with family and friends.... and don't forget to give all your family and friends hugs and kisses and tell them how much you love and appreciate them!!

And also don't forget to GO TO to find all kinds of DIY gifts to get started on for this holiday season...

Happy Crafting!!

So, its time to think about gift giving..and making!!!

I love making gifts!!! the problem is... I never have enough time to make them!!! And that is a BIG problem. These are some things that i would love to try and make this holiday season...

Owl hats... love them!!! they are so fun!! I would need to make two of them
Beanies for the boys and man in my life(my sweet husband)... so that would be three of those
Goat milk soap... OMGoodness i forgot to post about my goat milking adventure.. i will have to do that
Goat milk fudge...yum!!

So this is all I can remember right at this moment... but I think i can do it!!! now that soccer season is over ( so our 3 games a week and 3 practices a week ) and we just have 3 kids in basket ball.. so that only means between 4 and 6 games a week and 6 practices a week that i would have to taxi for... well that does mean alot of sitting at games and practices that i could be crocheting my hats... RIGHT!!!

 So everyone get started on making your gifts for the holiday season!!
