Happy Birthday Adam

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly

Another fun, family friendly challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘of course’ it’s “Anything Goes” as far as styles or projects.
This is our 163rd challenge.  A TWO week challenge for you this time. 
Thank you so much for taking time to share your magnificent art with us. We appreciate your participation and we love seeing the creations.
Congratulations to the winners from last week.  Once again, we had so beautiful entries.

I burned two dozen buns yesterday and I am now out of yeast. The bun making is on hold until I get to the store.  I did get the meat mixture cooked and frozen until the pastry is made for the tourtiere.
Adam will turn 14 on December 19th hence the rather ‘embellishment free’ birthday bag to hold his gift. I used the sketch from ODBD.

Here is some wonderful free Word Art for you.

Happy 20th Birthday Dakota

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
Another fun, family friendly challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘of course’ it’s “Anything Goes” as far as styles or projects.
This is our 162nd challenge.  Thank you so much for taking time share your magnificent art with us. We appreciate your participation and we love seeing your creations.

Yesterday was my Grandson’s twentieth birthday. He was our first grandchild. I prepared a gift bag to hold homemade buns chocolate chip muffins and his gift.
 I used the wonderful Word Art for the tag with a snowflake stamped with Versamark.  On the bag I randomly stamped swirly snowflakes which were embossed. I used some
stickles on the candle, and green parts of the December calendar from Diane’s Daydream Designs.

The bag really sparkled, the 9th was highlighted, Dakota quite liked it.
I made three dozen lovely light buns as well as two dozen chocolate chip muffins yesterday. I think I need to buy fresh yeast. The buns rose and are more than tasty, snow white inside; why didn't I take some pictures? This is the season where I make at least two dozen buns each day for my children and grandchildren. I will start to introduce whole wheat flour in a few weeks.
It’s been a week where counting it all joy was the main thing on the menu.
The Advent scriptures are heartwarming.

He Shall Save His People

I have many things accomplished from my seemingly never ending to do list. The house must be spotless for the holidays and all the tedium must be finished before baking begins. I have birch bark, kindling, chopped wood and the big pieces of wood to keep the fire burning.  Empty apple juice cans holding water, cinnamon, apple and lemon fill the air with wonderful scent as the fire heats things up.
This is a Christmas card for my son David from his sweet daughter Taylor. She nabbed it quickly.

The Mouse Who Got Away!

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
The adventures continue here at 1718. The other night when I awakened to go to the bathroom I heard the most interesting scratching noise under the sink. I feared a mouse had been caught and hadn't quite expired. After tossing and turning in bed for another hour I went back to check and, the curious scratching had not ceased. I looked, and the wee mousy had his tail caught in the trap and was trying to exit in the space around the pipes. Alas the size of the trap  wouldn't accommodate his retreat although he was trying. I picked the trap up and he played possum as I carried him out the front door. Greased lightning left the trap with a bit of a crink in the tip of his tail, He has decided not to return. I was so happy he got away. Finally I see where they are getting in which will solve the problem.
