What would Christmas be without a bling sale and some really good cookies? BORRRRRRRRRING
Yesterday our beading club had a "Holiday Bling Fling". There were 41 of us in a big square in the room where we go beading. There was so much bling it made your eyes water. My friend Evelyn and I shared a table. We both do mostly polymer clay, I do a little beading, Kumihimo, wire wrapping, bead crochet and yadda, yadda, yadda. When we saw how much bling there was we thought it was going to be a slow sale day.
This is my side of the table.
This is Evelyn and her side of the table but we actually combined some of our things. We had a lot of fun and we both made enough money to have some fun and buy lots more clay.
I love baking Christmas cookies and I have a couple recipes I would like to share with you that I make every year.
