I finished my online classes from Kerri Bradford, so now maybe I can get back to doing my work and not playing! :)
I have been going a little bit crazy with my Silhouette machine again. I downloaded another class and this one is on cards! They are so fun to make and who does not love receiving a homemade card?
I thought that it would be fun to just do a round-up of some of our family’s favorite Christmas candies! Some of these recipes go way back and some are pretty new, but they have all become favorites!
Of course most anything with sugar in it, is a favorite around here! :)
I have fond memories of making candy for the holidays with my mom. We used to make all kinds of fondant and dip our own chocolates, we would make BIG batches of it and give it away to all of our friends. I also remember making anise candy, fudge, caramels and peanut brittle, those were great times and we had fun doing it all together! It still brings back good memories when I make them for my family now.
I don’t dip my own chocolates anymore but I do make fudge and peanut clusters, they are two of my favorite Christmas candies!
I finished my redwork quilt last weekend and I am so excited to put up all my Christmas decorations now! In fact, I had all my kids and grandkids haul up all my boxes with my decorations from the downstairs, so they are scattered in boxes all around the house! It usually takes me 2-3 days to put up all of my decorations, but for the most part, I take my time and just enjoy it. I usually have a little helper or two, so it goes up pretty quickly.
Here is my newest redwork project, to add to my collection:
This is a repost that I did a year ago. The original post said to use your leftover Halloween candy, but you could use any of these recipes before Halloween for your parties, get together’s or for a fun family night! These recipes are also great to give away as gifts for the holidays. Many of these recipes can be changed up just a little bit and you could use them for any time of the year!
Here is my visiting teaching handout for this month.
This is a message that the sisters of the church take out to each other when they go to visit them each month.
The message for this month is about welfare. The thought that I used is the one by President Erying, I love the overall message of this quote. There has always been a way provided for us to help others. We need to just keep our eyes and our hearts open to those around us that we could serve!

I made these fun file folder books for Father’s Day and so I decided that I would share them with you today. They are really pretty easy to put together, so if you still need a last minute idea for a gift, you could still make one of these!
