Crazy Daisy Open house...and Christmas Cookies!

Last weekend was a pretty great weekend! Friday afternoon I found out that my pregnancy is on the right track..which was such a relief! I was going out of my mind from Wed afternoon until Friday! On Friday night I had a "Crazy daisy open house". I sent out evites to my friends and family. I had lots of candles for sale of course. I also had jewelry, and other fun gifts. It went wonderful...I had a great turn out and I made about $300.00! So between this open house and both my craft fairs that I was in...I think i managed to make about $700.00. I 'm proud of myself for putting in all the hard work, it was so worth it!

I made these white elephant gift bags filled with goodies for anyone who needed a gift for a white elephant gift exchange! They were a hit...I sold all of them but One!

Whats a open house without lots and lots of yummy food!

Cream puffs...yummo!!

This was my candle display on the kitchen table

Saturday my sister and my brother in law came over for lunch and to make Christmas cookies!

she is so cute...and today...December 16th is her Bday! Happy birthday Anna Banana!

Yep...even uncle Gabe could not resist the fun!!

They turned out yummy...oh ya...thanks lis for the frosting recipe...they were perfect!!!

Have a wonderful day everyone!!
