345/365 Craft Time

Sleep over with the grands so we spent 4 hours at the kitchen table spreading Modge Podge EVERYWHERE and have a grand time! We made two great crafts - but one I can't show you because it is a secret. shhhh ( a present for Mom and Dad for Christmas).
Then we cleared off all the paper and paint and tissue paper and chisled off the modge podge and decorated Christmas cookies.

This photo is the final product after waiting forever for the Modge Podge to dry.

Festivities from the day are on the regular blog HERE

340/365 Tourtiere

Because I thought you might like a break from little girls and glitter.
Sweetheart and I made these this afternoon. Supper for those cold winter nights when you get home from work and want something yummy and filling but only have the energy to make a salad. :) 
Four went in the freezer and one went in the oven. It was yummy and filling!!
