December Ideas and Inspirations

I like Christmas cut out cookies.  They are so easy to make and so fun to decorate.

I like the King Arthur Flour cookie cutters.  So cute.

I have the King Arthur Flour ’54 Pickup truck with the Christmas tree in the back, which is just too cute.

Gingerbread Cookies are always fun.

I got the Lock N Lock containers with the gift bags when they were a “todays special” a few weeks ago on QVC.  I think they will be cute to put Christmas cookies in for little gifts.

I like thumb print cookies or Raspberry Shortbread Cookies.  I put the recipe in my Pinterest Christmas recipes.

I also like the King Arthur Flour Polar Bear cookie cutter.  So fun to decorate.

The Snow Globe cookie cutter at King Arthur Flour is such a cute idea.

You can decorate the cookies any way you want.

I like the idea of the star string lights for a kitchen window.

Keene, NH is so pretty at Christmas time.

A sleigh ride in Iowa.

I’ve never been on a sleigh ride, but they have them available to try in a lot of local places.  Looks like fun.

I like Norman Rockwell’s painting of Stockbridge, Massachusetts.  I always get a Norman Rockwell desk calendar free from the Walpole Savings Bank this time of year.

Stockbridge celebrates Norman Rockwell each December with old time cars and all.  Looks like fun.

I saw a recipe for a No Bake Eggnog Cheesecake that sounded interesting.  I pinned the recipe in my Christmas recipes board on my Pinterest.

Maple Nut Fudge sounds really good.  I found several recipes, but the recipe with a cup and a half of real maple syrup sounded the best.  Some recipes called for a teaspoon of maple extract.   I don’t think so.  I like the real maple syrup idea.  I pinned the recipes on my Christmas Recipes on my Pinterest.

I like Colonial Lantern lights with greens on them all dressed up for Christmas.

I think that twilight just after a new snowfall is beautiful.

I used the above photo to make my Christmas cards this year.  I just make photo cards on line at Walgreens.   I made labels for my Christmas Cards by using a photo of a ’54  Chevy Pickup Truck with a Christmas tree in the back and making them on line on the Avery website.

 

And that’s my ideas and inspirations for the moment.  🙂

  2. Hi Rhonda Sittig……….We haven’t got snow yet here either but it’s supposed to snow by next week, maybe. Those cookies are my inspiration from King Arthur Flour. I have the cookie cutters and can’t fail recipes. So I just will have fun with them. I didn’t decorate those cookies for sure. I just like to have fun and sometimes I surprise myself and stuff comes out the way I want. I emphasize “sometimes”. Merry Christmas!! Hope it’s a sweet time of year for you there, also! xox
