Ahhh... The Fragrance!

Wish you could be at my place right now.  I have had these in the oven & the house just smells of cinnamon! Some early Christmas scent coming to town already!  

This morning we had playgroup.  This morning I made 3 batches of this dough.  Sadly there weren't many at playgroup this morning so I still have a batch left & managed to pass on half another.  We do have this lot of ornaments though.  I took them home to bake as it's easier as you have to leave them in the oven for a while after turning it off.  There are marks on the trays about who owns which ornaments.  Pencil lines & writing made that bit simple.   I did do a bunch of extra trees too for next week when the children who weren't there this time can finish them off with painting or just a string.  I think they look quite nice like this & some of them have glitter on them as there was glitter on the table that was left stuck from previous crafts!  All good!  It is an easy recipe though & I think I will be making a few more tomorrow when I have some more time to use up that other lump of dough.  Or maybe I will have to find some more children to give it too!  

Also on the agenda today is this hat.  BJ has a birthday party on Saturday.  We don't know this boy well, so a hat was a good idea I thought.  He hasn't had a hat at school that I have noticed, so this might be appreciated!  It will be unique anyway!  I have an order from the teacher for one now so these are proving to be a hit!  Not bad at all huh?  So the hats are lining up.  I have fabric to make 4 for Christmas presents for family friends of ours so that will be an in between job too.   Eventually I will get one made for me!  lol  

Playing here again!

The best form of advertising with goods is always word of mouth or in your case hat on heads.... xxxx
