So, creations since November…aside from spray painting some pumpkins, I don't think I created any new items to add to my fall decorating, but below are the three areas I did decorate in my home.

I did create a new cookie/bar recipe this fall. My sister was talking about the spice bars from a local bakery that had closed and how much she missed them. I started fooling around with some pumpkin and spice bar recipes that I had used in the past and came up with one that was really, really close to what I remember from the bakery.
I'll have to find the recipe at home and add it later.
I also came to a very important discover in November. I missed my paper calendar. I have my iCal and my Google calendar, but I realized that I used my paper planner for so much more. I would write down things that had happened or things that I wanted to remember that a computer calendar just couldn't do, so after almost a year of no paper planner, I purchased one. Needless to say -- I'm happy again.
I threw together this Christmas card holder using some left over jute from a upholstery job I did and found a wooden star daughter #1 had for some reason. It didn't look too bad and gave us someplace to put all the cards.
I also managed to get my Christmas cards out before Christmas this year. I had several left over from last year and added this new one to the mix.
The bad thing about waiting so long to post, I cannot remember who the paper was from.
We had a exceptionally cold and snowy winter here and as a result it seemed our wonderful neighbors were always plowing our driveway for us.
We were forecasted to receive quite a snowfall on a Saturday, so I stopped by the store on the way home Friday night to pick up supplies for the weekend and they had blackberries for $1.00 a carton so I picked up several. That next morning as promised, we had 18" of snowfall and our neighbors had their work cut out for them. As a thank you, I made this blackberry buckle and delivered it to them nice and hot.
