Christmas goodies from Sharon

Put on your baking gloves and get to it! It’s truly the season to be getting all warmed up in front of the oven and dishing out gingerbread and cookies and cakes and sweets and what not! And Sharon got down to it alright! What I loved about Sharon’s baking was her innovative use of […]

Holiday gifting!

I like to say I like giving more than receiving, but then who’d believe me  😉 ? The DIY bug, however, has put me a very giving mood I must say. And gifting something that you’ve put effort into can be very satisfying. So I gift wrapped some cookies I’d made.  Actually, you don’t even […]
