Friday Favorites: December 9

It was another busy week for our family.  There were band concerts and book reports due. Not to mention all the extra preparations for Christmas.  Here’s a few of my favorites from the first full week of December.

  • Helping the 8 – 11 year old girls at church deliver bags for their food drive.
  • I finished reading The Christmas List.  It was a great Christmas book that challenged me to think of five people I’ve hurt in my life and how to make amends with them.
  • Catching up on ordering pictures from this year.  I’ve ordered pictures from half the year!
  • Attending a baking party with one of my friends. Cooking is much more enjoyable to do with friends. It was one those times that reminds me to not be so busy that I don’t have time to be social. And it was an excuse to whip up a batch of Hot Chocolate Cookies!
  • I figured out how to make the outline of a picture on my Silhouette.  It would be better if I could add some more detail, but I’m learning!

Since I can’t have all the fun, here’s some cool things I found online!

  • This scrapbook layout from Got Sketch? makes me want to ditch my other responsibilities and spend time being creative.
  • But since that’s not possible, I could whip up Cookie & Cups’ great Krispie Treat Christmas Tree for next’s week’s classroom party.
  • Or I could bone up on Somewhat Simple’s Christmas light photography tutorial.  I love the heart shape sparkle in the last picture.
  • It’s never too early to start thinking about next year’s goals.  Latter Day Woman has some great tips!
