I hope you are enjoying the first few days of 2023 and relaxing at least a bit after all the fanfare of the holidays. While I’m enjoying the calm after the storm, I’m also hoping you made it through the last month with a little more grace than I managed. I rolled into Christmas with my hair on fire, fueled by the gale force winds and bitter cold temps as I was forced to purchase gifts as a product of my own procrastination.
What I really sat down to write about (because it I need and want to write! It has been way too long), was to tell you all about these fun little puff pastries I made for yesterday’s Independence Day party. I love puff pastry anything but I’ve never actually baked it, so this was a little something new for me.
One little project that adds a bit of warmth to my outings, is a cute set of homemade hand warmers. I simply plop them in the microwave for a minute or so, drop them in my coat pockets and soak up the heat on cold, blustery days. Their warmth doesn’t last as long as commercial hand warmers, but you also don’t have to shake them until your fingers go numb. Plus, they are all-natural, reusable and super stinkin’ cute!
