Breast Cancer Survivor Choker

Well, I told you that I was making some new chokers for my etsy store. here is my newest creation, a breast cancer survivor choker. Choker sales have been way down, so I lowered the price of them hoping to bring in more sales. Let me know what you think!

Reuse of a jar

I have been saving jars all year, knowing that I would want to make some gift mixes for this Christmas. Needless to say, it didn't happen! So I decided to make a candy jar for us instead. I used pattern scrapbook paper, and ribbon to make it, very simple! I am so proud of myself for making something from reusable materials! 
I am in the process of making up a "Christmas" Journal to put all of my gift ideas in, and then will put when I want to make them on the calendar. I want to start earlier then this year!!!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!
We are spending Christmas alone this year because of the snow! My Mom is stuck down south and can't make it to us, and we can't make it to her. So this year will be very weird! 
The DH and I took Chelsea, our little Jack Russell, out for a walk tonight in the snow. It was fun, and we discussed getting snowshoes, and how great it would be for family fun. We'll have to check into the prices and see if that's truly what we would want to spend money on. 
Well, Everyone have a Merry Christmas! My menu hasn't changed at all, unless we don't make ham tomorrow. In that case we will have something different on Friday!!
