A Season of Contemplation: A Couch Adventure
We are still experiencing a busy season and crafty time has been limited. I did sit and make a few Christmas cards this morning but I forgot to photograph them before sending them out in the mail. I also made a few stamps to join in the #carvedecemberchallenge hosted by Julie Balzer but I have yet to make anything with them so hopefully next week I will have more crafty things to share.
During the Christmas season, I get so caught up with busyness that I tend to lose the reason for all the joy. This year I have been joining in an advent study by Dee Brestin. She has amazing studies on her blog. If you need some encouragement during this difficult time or just want something to help you reflect on the meaning of the season, check out her free study HERE. I have found it to be very uplifting.
The Little Chef
As you can tell, my little that likes to bake has been busy. He is not yet able to complete everything without assistance so I am present throughout the (virtual) class to help clarify instructions and help where needed.
Last week, my son made candy cane cookies in his Baking from Scratch class. They are sugar cookies twisted into candy canes and dusted with peppermint.
For my son’s Dinner in December class, he made Pasta al Limone, chicken breast and garlic bread.
On the menu this week in his baking classes are brown butter blondies, pumpkin spice hot chocolate, and Italian sugar cookies. Yum! I can’t wait to sample all of these.
I had a little extra time to sketch this week so I am making a little more progress on this image. I am struggling to get the right texture for her skin. It appears too smooth to me.
I am joining the T ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is a white peach. White tea is my favorite and I love the dried pieces of peach.
Happy Tea Day,
