Favorite Things About Today:

1.  No school till January 6

2.  Sledding party for Coleman over at Quinn’s house


3.  Mini BLTs in the works for the family party at Grandma’s (evening will include the Nativity reenactment by the grandkids and the telling of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” – from memory – by my brother, Uncle Kent)


How to make these tasty treats:

  • cut white bread into about 1.5″ circles using a fondant cutter
  • toast bread quickly in the oven
  • add a dab of mayo to each circle using a condiment squeeze bottle
  • place a slice of tomato on top (I use cherry tomatoes and can get about 2 slices per tomato)
  • add another dab of mayo then top with crumbled bacon

4.  I finally buckled down and tackled some EPIC Christmas quotes for the Silhouette store.  Click here for the Grinch, here for the Messiah and here for the Night Before Christmas.

5.  Birch tree card tutorial over at the Silhouette blog.


This card uses my Seasons Greetings shape but I’m in love with those birch trees.  Use this idea all winter long, just add an appropriate phrase from my shop to fit your occasion.   Here’s one that I just added last week.  Most of my phrases come with a layered option as well as a merged option depending on your project.
