Angels.... and snowman biscuits...

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called "Opportunity" and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

Edith Lovejoy Pierce

... I'm wishing a lovely book full of happy projects ....

how sweet is this babushka angel that arrived from Susan to hang around in my house.....

.... I think I need an angel all year so I don't think she will be put away in the decoration box....
such delicate wings and pretty blings

thanks susan.... love her....

Helen is a lovely person I am yet to meet in person .... her husband is fighting a great big battle at the moment and so I was so touched that she had time to make me this lovely hexagon mug rug.... it is the perfect size for next to my computer... thanks so much Helen and all the very best to you and your husband... 

Melody has been ill over Christmas ... lots of love to you and thank you so much for this awesome wool pincushion and special bow pins....
(filled with crushed walnut shells and she said you get it from the pet shops... great tip!!)

... this picture is not the best but another hand made.. this time by widget... a cute little tea light candle glass....

A quick how to... demonstrated by widget....

Add some plain white icing to the top of a biscuit....

... press on a marshmallow....

... ask Nana (or someone more sensible) to microwave for a few seconds ...
(10 seconds is too much!!)

.. then add some little chocolate eyes.... and nose....

... and we have melted snowmen.....

.... well... we live in Queensland so they get very melted!! ....
(in fact snowmens don't live here at all but that is beside the point... I still like them!)

.... then eat....

Have fun making your melted snowmens..... or womens....

Righto, Gotto Go.... it's amazing the mess in the kitchen after a widget has been there!
