This week leading up to Christmas has certainly been a busy one, but I have to say that I am so excited to have a regular post fall on Christmas Eve! I have got to start taking notes throughout the week so I can have somewhat more organized weekly posts. (New Years resolution, hm?)
I saw a pin on pinterest. This one actually: Sweater Restyle And made my own version. I'm not so sure I love it yet. I think maybe by spring I may learn to.
I finished another Christmas present. It has to be mailed out still...so no pictures yet. (Well, it is on Instagram ;) )
Finally, some baking. I braved the supermarket today and got some red and green chocolate chips to put on brownies and I bought a sugar cookie mix. Yeah, totally copping out this year. In the cookie department. I have got to come up with a better plan for picture taking and sweet baking next year.
I did manage to get some pictures of making ever so festive kale chips! I had to put my ipad on a stool which is why I appear to be a giant! These were deliciously simple. Literally. They also gave me a chance to wear my Olivia Walton apron. The most time consuming part was cutting the spine out of each kale leaf. After that I just tore them into 1 to 2 inch pieces mixed it with copious amounts of olive oil, speared a layer on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet, sprinkled with salt ,and baked at 300 degrees for 16-20 minutes. very easy appetizer for Christmas! And as Lucy Ricardo says "It's so tasty too!"
Merry Christmas to you all, and I wish you a very happy and healthy new year!
