So, Christmas is over and I guess we've all spent the past few days soaking in the last few of the Christmas spirit that's left. I made some 'Pear Pies' which basically are Mince Pies but much nicer (to me) because they have bits of pear inside instead of the filling in Mince Pies. You simmer some butter, brown sugar, cranberries. pear and cinnamon in a pan and after a while you begin to smell the ingredients all together and it's divine (and that comes from someone who doesn't even like Mince Pies!) I also made some Christmas punch which was mulled wine without the wine and some Raspberry Swirls. Present wise I got some craft bits, quilting rolls, an amazing gingerbread all-in-one,a CD and after with some money I had I bought a studio mic for my singing and stuff trouble was it went faulty so we had to return it and tomorrow I'll be collecting another. I've loved Christmas and hope you have too. An update is need for my last Saturday styles and there will be one final one in Saturday. After, I will put up a poll for you to vote on your favorite.The next Saturday Styles will be in next year. Now, I've got to go finish painting my walls-pink...
Christmas tomorrow and I found some more Pinterest Christmas Ideas you should try. I'm making non-alcoholic mulled wine with spice infusions and fruit (delish!) What are you doing now? I'm pretty sure I won't be able to sleep tomight but I'm looking forward to tomorrows celebrations....
Hope your getting excited-I know I am. I love Christmas, it's what I look forward to all year and it's worth the wait just to get that sense of morning joy as you open the presents. But I do love those 'all-the-trimmings' meals you eat and T.V specials you watch with the family. I love getting the decorations out of the loft and turning our house into a Christmas one. Have fun this Christmas!
I've been baking today just getting a spot of Christmas cooking done. I started baking little wafer biscuits which taste a bit like thin shortbread. Then, chewy gingerbread boys (which were delish!) and my mum made mince pies-can't beat warm from the oven (even though I don't even like mince pies?) Next time I'll see them is next weekend cosied-up with hot chocolate and a film aaah.
'I'M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS JUST LIKE THE ONES I USED TO KNOW'
Enjoy this week before christmas (finish those things you said you would do)
Hey there, I managed to get my photos on here but i'm not sure how long it'll stay on. Anyway, mum and I went to do a craft stall about two weeks ago and it was loads of fun. Below are a few pics of the stall and things we made x
