Saturday Salutations

My morning coffee is being sipped from a holiday mug I received last year. I put a tsp of cinnamon in with the grounds as the coffee brewed. A delicious way to start the day.

Over the next few days, I will be baking for a women's shelter and for gift giving. The sugar cookie dough is ready for chillin'.

The Christmas mugs I bought yesterday from Pottery Barn (buy two get one free) are ready for fillin'.

Wednesday and Thursday were whirlwind days for me. I love Saturdays because they are quiet and free of obligations (except for Zack's baseball pratice from 3-4:30 pm). There's time for cleaning, crafting, baking. Last nite I started making holiday tags with my recycled cereal boxes and bits of scrapbooking paper.

I also did a little cross-stitching and tried my hand at a crocheted stocking. I didn't much like the pattern. Was too fiddly to hold as I crocheted round and round. Will look for another pattern to try.

So much I want to do. I CANNOT believe it is December 11th. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend in your neck of the woods! Friendship Blessings, Tammy

Oh my gosh, you have been busy- tag making, crocheting, baking and cross stitch. I love the idea of recycling cereal boxes for craft supplies- great card stock!

I also love hunkering
down days, Tammy!
Lucky for us, we are
having a blizzard today
and all kid activities
were cancelled, so it
will truly be cozy as
we wrap and write and
hopefully sneak in a
movie or two. Thinking
about you across the
world! Big hugs!
xx Suzanne
PS: Thanks for your
heartfelt comments.
Loved hearing from you : )

My goodness girl, you are always so busy with this and that. I envy your energy. I love those pretty mugs you found and I know the recipients will be thrilled to receive some of your homemade goodness. You are such a sweet friend.
You always inspire me.
Have a fantastic Saturday!

Sounds like a lovely day ahead, Tammy! I need to get baking today, much to do! I can't believe it's the 11th, either!

I hope it's a wonderful day, sweet friend!

Have a great weekend.
Love ya!

I am not surprised that you are doing something for a worthy cause. Can't believe you didn't tell me of your little find at Pottery Barn. I'm gonna have to go there to get some of those mugs, that's if you didn't take them all. The only thing I have been crafting are cookies. Its so true how this month goes by so fast because everyone is just busy with the holidays. Happy crafting and making people happy:)

Marilyn said...

it all looks so very merry!

Hi Tammy, We are having a super snowy weekend in my neck of the woods...the biggest snow in 19 years.

A bit of cinnamon in coffee sounds good. Lately, I am into drinking chai tea every morning with splash of milk and honey.

Time is ticking away and I can't seem to get into the baking Christmas routine. I bet you have a lot of "tasters" in your house. I hope your days are Merry and Christmas brings a wonderful joy to your heart! Hugs ♥

Diane said...

Yes, Tammy, time's flying! I know it will all get done somehow for all of us. Lovely sounding coffee and cute tags, too. Diane

Hi Tammy
I love the pic of your laptop and coffee, I have a similar one on my new blog! happy holidays!

Shane Pollard said...

I love your Christmas header Tammy!!
I thought about making a Christmas theme on mine but didn't want to wreck the whole thing!!!
The cross stitch and card making is a nice way to relax and destress I feel - it works with me!
How wonderful to help the women's refuge - especially at this time.
Have you got a pottery barn in Q8???
Christmas hugs
