Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Christmas Fun

We've been having some Christmas fun around Mimi's Cottage this week.

We started out on Sunday with cinnamon rolls for dinner.
A cinnamon roll and a cup of hot chocolate.
Well balanced and oh so healthy.

Then on Monday we made a boatload of candy cane popcorn
for neighbors and friends.  I found the recipe and downloadable tag

On Tuesday I made a couple of Christmas stockings for a son in law
and our newest little grandgirl.

Today one of the grandboys and I made these snowman ornaments for
his mommy and his Mimi's tree.

They are made with the littlest canvas painted red.
The snowmen bodies are fingers painted white and used as
a stamp.  Snowflake fingerprints, sharpie pens for the details,
and ribbon to hang them by.  We tried to make some
with his 6 month old sister but that turned into a disaster!

Got the idea from HERE

Last week I made a couple of these cute candy holders.  They're made out of an old jar with the lid painted red and a Dollar Store candlestick also painted red.  I got the idea from HERE.

While the paint was drying on the snowmen ornament we made reindeer
cookies that I saw on Pinterest.

Sooo many fun ideas out there! 

Not one single original idea once again.

Tomorrow I hope to come down from my sugar high.

And clean up the mess we've made having all this fun.
