Pumpkin Pastries

Who can believe that Thanksgiving is this week? Crazy right! I can’t believe the holidays are already here. Am I the only one or does it seem like 2012 has gone by really fast?

This year Chris and I are going to join all the crazies for Black Friday! This will be my first year. My family has never really been into it and so I guess that is why I have never gone. Plus I was always in school and would rather sleep on my extra day off.

We are going because we would like a new TV and are trying to find something affordable. I am also looking forward to browse everything else that will be marked down, like clothes and DVDs. It should be a real interesting experience.

With the holidays upon us I have really been craving pumpkin desserts. At Chocolate, Chocolate and More I found this great recipe for Brown Sugar Cheese Danish. I thought they looked delicious and I was inspired to create something similar but with a pumpkin center. A Google search led me to The Home Heart’s Pumpkin Pie Dip.

I altered the pumpkin pie dip recipe a bit and combined the two recipes together. This is what I got:

Polka Dot Ombre Painting


Do you guys remember me mentioning my gallery wall? If you don’t you can check it out here.

I’ve only had the one picture hanging there for a while now. I knew that I really needed to make more items for the gallery wall because one picture on a huge wall all by itself is depressing!

So as I’ve been surfing the web looking at everyone’s lovely blogs and whatnot I have kept my eye out for something I can make. That is how I came across the idea for this beauty:

10 Hot Chocolate Recipes




It's starting to get chillier here in Ohio and I love it. I can not wait for us to get our first big snow! I was hoping to go skiing last year but we missed out on any good snow due to a mild winter. I know that ski places can make their own snow, if it is cold enough, but it just isn't the same as real snow. Even better if it is actually snowing while you ski! Let's hope we can go this year. : )

Cold weather always makes me crave hot chocolate! Here are 10 super delicious looking hot chocolate recipes:

Toilet Paper Roll Stamped Frame




I have a lot of frames that I don’t like the style of anymore but just can’t get rid of. So I am always looking for new ways to repurpose them.  When I stumbled upon this post from Creative Carmella I was delighted. She used a toilet paper roll as a stamp for painting/stamping a canvas, which she put a photo on. What an awesome idea! I had paint, toilet paper rolls, but no canvas…hm… but then I remembered all my old frames. Ah ha! I could do something with this tutorial.
