First and foremost, let me wish you a healthy and content 2014.

Folks, it is cold here in the mid-west, and I have been recovering from the Christmas craft and cooking frenzy.  I was proud of the ornaments for the grandchildren this year.

With a cardboard circle and paper towel, water and flour, I made these old fellows.  I attached a wire for hanging and painted them.  They were fun to make and it brought back childhood, playing with the homemade paste ;) 
With ornaments made it was time to start their baskets of homemade hot cocoa and coffee mix, candies, cookies and chocolate covered pretzels.  I ran out of time before I ran out of items to make.  Well there is always Valentine Day!

I started getting back to crafting and found a video friend using a great little bottle with a metal tip and stopper that doesn't clog with dried glue and lays a tiny dot or line of glue.  I ordered some for my self and was so pleased I contacted the couple in the UK that make and sell the fine tip bottles.  Hubby and I decided to distribute them thru TILLYSBRIDGE on ZIBBET.

I didn't have it in my store for longer than 4 hours before I got my first order.  I do hope others find this little gem as great as I.
Again, I wish you all a wonderful new year and will strive to be more faithful to my blog!!
May this find you all happy and healthy!!
