Day Ten of Vlogmas: Today was a pretty quiet day.  We did our schoolwork, I made another batch of applesauce cinnamon ornaments (that came out so much nicer than yesterday's), and we had basketball.  My husband and I also tested out a new little tool for getting better shots for videos.  Can you spot the clips that use it in this video?

Day Nine of Vlogmas: I was able to fit in some ornament making amid the tasks I accomplished today.  I finished up the grapefruit ornaments by adding some string to them and made an imperfect batch of applesauce cinnamon ornaments.  I learned a lot, so I hope that my next round of these pretty ornaments will be more polished.

Here are some things that I used:

Day Six of Vlogmas:  Happy Saint Nicholas Day!  I hope that you had a terrific feast day! 

Here are some simple steps for making baked salmon:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Cut up salmon fillets into portions.  Poke each piece of salmon with a fork.  If making lemon herb salmon, dress the fish with lemon juice, salt, pepper, and dill on salmon.  If making Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon, top the fish with soy sauce and freshly ground black pepper.  Bake salmon for 15 minutes or until done.  Remove Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon from oven after ten minutes and sprinkle with brown sugar. Return to oven for another five minutes or until done. Enjoy!

A Juniper Bonnet


I finished knitting another @foxandfolk Juniper Bonnet just a few minutes ago. I love this pattern! It's so quick and easy. Since this bonnet is for a little boy, I left out the lace. This particular shade of grey is so perfect for the rosy complexions of newborns.
