Yarn Is Everywhere!

I've decided to make purses this year for my sisters and mother. I should have found something a little quicker to make! These will be so cute though! The pattern shows you how to line them with fabric and add decorative flowers and/or buttons. I will post pictures of the finished products at the end of the month! So excited. I love making gifts. So...many....stitches....

Easy Warmth

Making hot chocolate from scratch is entirely too simple. Adding freshly made whipped cream is too! We make this all winter long. My little boys can't get enough of it! We also make a variation called Hot Vanilla which is just milk, vanilla and sugar. It's great also. Just heat your milk, add sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder (or not) to taste. The whipped cream is made from heavy whipping cream whipped with your mixer and then also add sugar and vanilla to taste. Simple. Amazing. And much, much better than hot chocolate mix!!
