I know that we are technically still in October…..but Christmas is right around the corner! So I am going to be doing a lot of Christmas projects so I hope you’re prepared!

This is just a small project. It only took me about 30 minutes. I made this with a small piece of wood that I bought at walmart for like a buck and then just decorated it with some paper and buttons. I love the quote in the middle, I just cut it out of a piece of scrapbook paper that had the quote on it.

You can hang this on your wall with some ribbon or just lean it against a wall or put it on a shelf! I like how it turned out and I only spent a dollar on the whole thing.

I love this this time of year, but can I just say it is FREEZING cold here in Utah and I am so ready for the warm weather to come back! It is so cold that I made some Hot Apple Cider. It was so yummy. I got the recipe out of my Kraft Magazine and it was super easy.

1 Gallon of Apple Cider

1 tub of “sunrise” crystal light

4 cinnamon sticks

2 tsp whole cloves

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Put all of the ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer and let simmer for about 20 minutes and then remove your cinnamon sticks and cloves and enjoy!

This recipe is definitely going in my recipe box!
