I have made a commitment to make Christmas gifts this year (to stretch my creativity and we are very poor these days (so why not buy a video game, right? He exchanged debit reward points so I let it slide...). I am attempting to make as many things as possible with paint samples! I would post some photos, but they are gifts so those photos have to wait till post-Christmas. Okay...here's something I did. I got the idea from Pinterest! I actually did something I pinned! It's a paint sample calendar in a frame - you write on the glass and viola! White board calendar. I'm excited. Oh- and I got dry erase pens at Joann.
Also, my good friend's mom gave me her wonderful recipe for her pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (drooling yet?) and tonight I had the courage to give it a try! I think they turned out well. After making a whole plateful I froze the rest of the dough for Thanksgiving - no need to eat all those cookies by ourselves.
Last, but certainly not least, let us remember that it is Veteran's Day.
Thank you to all those who serve and have served, though words are not enough.
Happy 11-11-11/OCD/Veteran's Day!
