We are blessed by a quiet life but I realize have been busy enough that I have not posted very much to my blog lately. Some "little things" have kept me away : )
This month I had a little bug (bluck), and I've been blessed to have been able to be able to enjoy THREE "little people" Christmas programs! and I been covered up with "little houses" like the ones I'll share today.
I was so excited when my DH blessed me with the Make It Market "Tinsel & Tags" Kit this month. It is my first ever MIM kit and I cannot imagine loving any Papertrey product more! There are so many many delightful projects you can do with this (now sold out) kit.
This one is for my Dad. He has a little cabin nestled in the woods that he lovingly calls "Der Voods" : ) I created this little snowy replica of his beloved summer home. He lives in Florida and happily never actually sees the woods in the winter LOL but I think he'll like it just the same : ) The snow globe fits perfectly on the top of a canning jar.
|The banner reads " From Our House To Yours"|
I created about 10 of these jars for little gifts to give away. I filled them with the ingredients for "Blizzard Bites" a really yummy recipe which I will include later in this post. It layers nicely and looks pretty in the jar. Topping it off with the snow globe it really makes for a sweet little gift.
My Shaker Card design followed the same snow globe theme this year : ) and were really fun to make.
Fun! times. I almost feel like an architect heehee.
That is it for me today. Have a great day!!
Papertrey Ink's Make It Market - Tinsel & Tags Kit : )

1 Jar Blizzard Bites
Remove white chocolate chips from Blizzard Bites Mix and set aside. Place remaining contents into a medium bowl, stirring to combine. Place white chocolate chips in a small saucepan and melt over low heat or melt in the microwave on 50% power (be careful not to overheat chocolate). Pour melted white chocolate chips over snack mixture. Stir until snack mixture is evenly coated with melted chocolate. Spread mixture in a single layer on a waxed paper to harden. Store in an airtight container.
