December 24: Merry Christmas to All

Today we wrap up our 24 Days of Christmas and hope you have enjoyed the fun.
Please note we will be closed today and tomorrow for Christmas, but will be back in action on Friday & Saturday with our big after Christmas sale.
The Blue Sky Bulky trunk show has departed, and we have a winner of the Frosty Cowl kit to announce. Congratulations Peggy Smith, you can pick up your kit next time you’re in the shop.
Another fun trunk show from Blue Sky Alpacas will be arriving shortly after the first of the year featuring Metalico. More on that soon.
Mason and I spent the day baking yesterday. We made Christmas cookies and our traditional gingerbread house. This year he was the lead designer and decorator. I am now just the lowly assistant.
I think he did an excellent job! If you have nothing better to do today, you really need to make some Christmas cookies for yourself. Boy are they good. You can find my recipe here.
Mason is always afoot when I’m decorating cookies. He is crazy about icing! This video is from when Mason was just 2 years old and was “helping” me decorate Halloween cookies.

I don’t know how many times today I had to tell him not to squirt the icing in his mouth. Some things never change!
He also helped me wrap Fleur de Sel Caramels  – you really must make these too! We had a busy day. Now if I just don’t eat myself into a diabetic coma, we’ll be doing good.
Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas. Also, where did you get the sqirt bottles for the frosting and ate they reusable?

      Jenny I bought some from Pampered Chef. I love them. They are a little hard to clean but so worth the effort.
