Cookie Exchange

This last Christmas I decided to host a cookie exchange. My friend Ashley brought every guest a sugar cookie Christmas tree. They were amazing. I made chocolate chip cookies, sugared cranberries, chocolate covered pretzels and brownie covered oreos. Yum!

Details: Red paper is Berries from the Wintertime line by Echo Park. Snowflake paper is Falling Snowflakes from the same Echo Park line.

Turkey Ball

I love to make cheese balls. People love to eat my cheese balls. Some people even go so far as to request one whenever they see me. I decided this year I was going to make one as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. I thought it would be more festive if it looked like a turkey (I have been known to make a snowman around Christmas time). It was so great, even though I got made fun of for my creativity, that I decided to scrap it.

Details: Orange paper is Marigold by Bazzill Basics. Leaf and green paper are the A&B sides of Changing Leaves from the Apple Cider collection by Imaginisce. Leaf stickers are from the same line.

I haven't scrapbooked or done anything crafty in months. I have a good reason though:

We Moved!

We bought our first house and we are finally done with some home renovations and have moved in. I will be scrapping this weekend. I think it will feel good to get back in the creative groove. :)
