I am still drooling over the sugar cookies that I baked up for a baby shower this last weekend. I was frosting them at about midnight and got all crazy with the patterns in the icing. They were way soft and fluffy cookies too-- it's a recipe I found in JB's family cookbook-- Sour Cream Sugar Cookies.

Christmas Crafting Already?!

I am excited to share this adorable mini-accordion scrapbook project that my mom made. I think it's such a cute idea.

My little brother is still in Northern Italy serving a mission for our church, so he won't be home for Christmas (but will be shortly after! Yay!). So, he will miss the annual "Nativity Story" skit that that grandkids do on Christmas Eve. So, my mom dressed all of my nieces and nephews up in the Nativity clothes and took pictures of them. She then created this adorable little book to send to my brother.

Besides being a great gift to send to someone who isn't going to be home for the holidays, I think it would make a great decoration to sit on a shelf or across the mantle.

ps. don't forget, today is the last day to enter to win a Silhouette download card by commenting on this post!

Silhouette Download Card Giveaway


Did ya'll get that email from Silhouette this week that said the Quickutz issued download cards will expire on Dec. 31st of this year? Well, when I received it, it made me remember that I had a $25 Silhouette download card tucked way away in a box at the top of my closet!

I have dug it out, and am offering it to one lucky reader as a prize for being so lovely and reading my little blog. :)

So here's the deal:
-To enter, become a "follower" of my blog and then comment on this post. Pretty easy.
(And if you already follow the blog, just go ahead and commend and let me know).
-Include your name and email address ("loni AT email DOT com" or "loniatemaildotcom")

An additional entry in the drawing will be given if you blog, tweet, or facebook the giveaway. Just comment again and let me know that you did so!

This give away will close Wednesday night. I will use a random number generator and announce the winner on Thursday.

Good luck!

I am loving this "Hey" themed treasury. Just in case you don't know, a treasury is a member curated list of items for sale on etsy, in this case curated by OhMyAmersand (you won't be disappointed if you click the link to her awesome shop). I never cease to be amazed by the creativity of sellers--and treasury curators, in this case--on etsy.

Sorry I have been MIA for quite a while! I went to visit my family for a week, and I have been playing catch up on all my work since I got back. To make up for it, I have a free download today. Enjoy!
