Eggnog Truffles

I tried my hand at making eggnog truffles today for our Christmas celebration.  I overheated the first batch of dipping chocolate and had to throw it away.  I was thankful I had enough white chocolate for another batch.  Yum!

Melt in Your Mouth Cookies

My daughter made these melt-in-your-mouth cookies yesterday.  They are called The Treats Truck's Caramel Crème Sandwich Cookies and are like a shortbread, only better!  Yum!

I used two textures on the photo.  One by inSight Designs, which you can download for free here:

and one by my friend and photographer, David Gunter, which you can find here:

By Wisdom a House Is Built


A friend has a collection of her father's handmade birdhouses throughout her yard.  He hated seeing wood go to waste and found a way to save it and build these beautiful creations.

Embrace Life

I needed an image for my most recent blog post, so I searched my archives for a cross.  This was taken in February during my visit to NC on a photo safari with an online photographer friend.  I edited it using some of Michelle Kane's HeARTy Actions and one of my own texture images.
