Creative couple of weeks

I have been busy creating but not in the paper sense.  I decorated three trees in my home last week.  The first, on Monday is a little 4-foot tree that I hang on the wall and decorate with glass ornaments.  The second tree, I didn't "put-up" (thank you hubby and boyfriend of daughter #2) our 12' tree in the family room but I did decorate it. The third tree was a 7' tree that my sister helped me put up and decorate in our front room.  As much work as it was to put them up, it's even more work taking them down and I am not looking forward to that.

I've have also been busy baking. I made 6 different kinds of cookies: (chocolate krinkles, chocolate surprise, chocolate thumbprints w/peppermint frosting, fruit thumbprints, cranberry/orange sugar cookies, butterscotch noodle cookies and coconut macaroons), I also decorated some nutter butter cookies to look like snowmen. PLUS - I made buckeyes, potato candy and chocolate covered cherries. There are actually a few kinds that I still want to make but OMG I am over baking right now.  

It's hard to tell from the picture but this is my deep freeze with several of the cookies in it.

I also spent yesterday afternoon out in the scrapbook room and made a variety of Christmas cards. Can you believe it?? I actually made Christmas cards this year! :)

It's been a joke in my family for the past several years because the cards always get pushed to the back burner and never get made. I'm quite proud of myself and if I hadn't had to get up at 4:00 a.m. to get hubby to the airport, I might very well go back out there tonight but, I don't know if I have the energy.
