Why I believe the chicks have discovered Santa! Sam just had
to take Mama and the chicks to see the big guy…what a great pup!!
I turned the calendar to a new month. I'm not ready for this month
to begin because it goes quickly and I want it to last just a little bit
longer. December's a time of cold and snow, of glittering lights
and cookies galore. It's about celebrating the season and finding
the joy. Most of all it's about family and faith. Yep 22 days until
Christmas folks. Make your December merry and bright.
Let's have some fun facts this month about the Xmas season.
Here's the first about a very favorite treat.
I think it's thyme for a couple of Christmas crafts. Easy and
inexpensive. How about a Christmas Snow Bowl and a
Cranberry/Vanilla Light In A Jar. Here's how to do them both.
Everything for each project can be found at Walmart. For the
snow bowl you'll need a small fish bowl, artificial snow, red and
green felt balls (mine are glittery balls I've had,) a miniature Xmas
tree, plus other small items of a Xmas nature. An angel, tiny
houses, reindeer, a santa or snowman are also great items.
Put the snow in the bowl, add the extras for your Xmas scene.
That's it. What a sweet gift for someone as well.
For the next project you'll need a jar. It can be a candy jar, a
mason jar, or a small bowl. Make sure it's clear glass. A bag
of fresh cranberries, some artificial greenery, vanilla scented
tea lights, and water. That's it. Place your greenery and
cranberries in the jar, fill with water and place the votive
on top. Light the candle and wait for that wonderful scent.
Do several for a table display.
