The countdown 'til All Hallows' Eve is on!! Soon our munchkins will don their costumes and hit the streets to fill their pillow cases with treats, but first, pumpkin carving!! I am sure we aren't the only family tackling their pumpkin carving or decorating this weekend so I thought I would help you with the process.   Clean out your pumpkin I am sure you all know this but you first need to cut a hole into your pumpkin so you can clean out the guts.

Christmas Workshops

It is that time of year again and it is time to get you prepared and excited for the upcoming holiday season. In order to help you do this, the first thing I have created is an all day Christmas Retreat on Sunday, December 2, 2018. We will be doing stamp carving so you can make your own tags, cards and gift wrap.

For anyone who hasn't done a cookie exchange before they are a great way to get a variety of baking done without all of the work. You just need to make a ...
