Your Creative Timeout {No.59}

It’s been a busy week around here.  We’ve had rain, rain, and some more rain so the kids are going a little stir-crazy and so am I :)  My Nana was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and is not doing well.   She is being released from the hospital today and is returning to her nursing home with hospice care.    She is refusing treatment and they said she could pass any day now.  My Nana is the person that inspired me to get in the kitchen and cook and so many of her recipes remain favorites in our house.  She just turned 92 last Friday and has lived an incredible life.

This week I shared…

Candy Cane Reindeer| Maple Nut Chocolate Candies

Chocolate Pecan Sandies|Wood Snowman Ornaments
