Pepperminty week

~ Frozen fruit pop's for my little man, sometimes with a drizzle of chocolate sauce for a treat
~ Fresh raspberries straight from the cane, we have been picking about 2 handfuls each day and my bubba will eat about half of that before we get inside. It's so nice to have fresh fruit literally in our backyard.
~ Crushed pepperminty goodness made into sweet creamy pepperminty goodness using this amazing peppermint bark recipe from Orangette. It's even better than it looks if that is possible. A sure hit for christmas and gorgeous little gifts when stacked in jars and tied with a bow.
~ A little last minute crafting for a few more gifts.

With most of my christmas gifts under control i'm turning my thoughts to prepping a summer craft for on the road. I love having something simple to pick up and put down easily to work in with the day. Hmmm redwork, blackwork, hand piecing some hexagons for quilts....  The next craft is always a big decision!

How's your christmas gift shopping or crafting going? 


  1. I'm thinking of my next project as well...but what to do, what to do?

    1. I know i always feel like a kid in a toy store when im thinking of a new project! ah bliss just in time for christmas
