Here is a felt seahorse that I made....
...and a retro santa that we've had forever.......

Sugar Cookies

Here are a couple pictures of this year's Christmas cookies. Typically, we make peanut butter cookie cut outs and decorate. This year I made sugar cookies from this recipe: Above you can see Melanie's Obama Tribute Cookie. The weird clown below started out as a regular cookie man but I just kept adding frosting until it was crazy enough.

Christmas Eve

It must be Christmas Eve because Santa is here! Ha! Okay, don't worry; this is not becoming a cute cat blog. I couldn't resist, though.

It's almost Christmas! I've been so busy with cookies and crafts for sale, that I don't feel very prepared. Above is one of the designs I made for Christmas cards this year.

Mr. Boots "helps" me make a wreath.....

I'll post a picture of the finished wreath (sans cat) soon. The battery on the camera died before I could get a good pic.

More Felt Ornaments

Yes, I know - more owls! What can I say? Owls are very fun to make. They all have their own quirky personalities, depending on how long the ears are, the color of their beaks, which buttons I pick for the eyes. Do you like the cupcake? I'm pretty pleased with it.

Christmas Cookies

As I mentioned, I've been baking cookies for sale these past few weeks. I do an assortment of oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, butter cookies, and oatmeal chocolate chip. They are pretty delicious and fun to wrap but pretty exhausting, too, in such large batches. I would like to make and decorate some cut out cookies for family and friends but don't know if I will have time.

I got my PB cookie recipe from and the only change I made was to substitute about a 1/4 cup of the flour for wheat flour:

Lots of December Projects......

I can't believe it's already December 7th! I've been terrible about blogging lately but have been busy with lots of Christmas projects. I am making felt ornaments for sale, baking cookies for sale, and trying to get my apartment decorated for Christmas. I will try to post some more pictures soon but here is a picture of a snowman ATC I did earlier this month. We've been getting lots of snow lately - it doesn't accumulate to much but it seems like it is always snowing.
