"Børk! Børk! Børk!"

No pictures at the moment, but some to come soon.

  We've been pretty busy. I'll be able to talk about it next week but it's hush-hush at the moment. In the mean time, we're working hard to get things ready for our upcoming Christmas party. We're hosting a white elephant gift exchange which should be fun. Neither of us have ever attended one, but I hear they are fun and  would love to make it an annual tradition. I was able to score some extra tree trimmings for free at a local Christmas tree farm so I've spent the last two afternoon making garlands for around the house. Total cost $1.99 for some floral wire at Joann's, plus the cost of the hooks to hang them from. I made a paper angel last night and cut out the aluminum shapes for my embossed Dala horses. They'll be going on the taper candles.

I signed up for a sock making class. (knitting). Holy moly four needles take some getting used to. I'm waiting to hear if I can get a rain check on the next class. I bit off more than I can chew in the last two weeks and my  sock project has been deemed  "lowest priority". I'm also working on a knit scarf for a Christmas gift and have plans to crochet a couple of pairs of fingerless gloves.  But first, beaded earrings and and a Christmas party, as the earrings will be going to a party guest.

For the party, we're going to have a Scandinavian smorgasbord in one room and all of the desserts and sweet treats in another. I've not made most of these recipes before, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

The way I see it.... If I serve enough glogg, the food won't matter.  Happy Holidays!
