No Fear


There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.   1 John 4:18

Candy Corn Cookies

Here’s something fun to try with your kids this fall…  Candy Corn Cookies.  No real candy corn is involved :)  They were easy and always turn out so cute!
You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe.  We always use Grammy Snelling’s sugar cookie dough.
When your cookie dough is finished, divide it into 3 portions.     Then use gel food coloring to make the orange and yellow sections.  I make a slightly larger amount yellow, then some orange, leaving a smaller portion plain white. 
They look suspiciously like play dough at this point!

Fold a piece of wax paper or parchment paper so that it fits in a loaf pan.  Smoosh the dough into the loaf pan… orange first, then yellow and finally the plain sugar dough.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just get your layers in there: 
November 057
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is thoroughly chilled and firm.  Remove and use the wax paper to help coax the dough loaf out of the pan. 
November 060
Carefully cut into thin slices: 
November 062
Cut each slice into little triangles.  They’re already looking like “candy corn.”  Dust with sprinkles or sugar and bake per your recipe’s instructions.

What’s your color personality?


Better Homes and Gardens offers this quiz to help you decide what color to paint your walls, based on your answers to eight questions.

Hmm.  Apparently my color personality is YELLOW

And strangely, it came out yellow all 3 times I took it…

(I couldn’t decide if my favorite season was spring, summer, or autumn). 

(Because I am NOTHING, if not decisive). 

Sooo... What color is your personality?!

Your color personality is: Yellow
Like yellow's strongest symbol, the sun, you radiate warmth. Others love to be around you because you have a gift for always looking on the bright side, and your ready smile can be infectious. Chances are your calendar is packed -- yellow lovers tend to be always on the go! Your signature color indicates someone imaginative and creative, so don't be afraid to express yourself through the way you dress and the way you decorate your home. Cheerful yellow is the ideal hue for a kitchen, laundry room, or any room that needs some extra brightness.

Punkin’ Toes

Autumn has been making it’s presence felt here in WY.  Actually, fall arrives here much sooner than many parts of the country :) The leaves are mostly gone and it is freezing nearly every night now. 
Pumpkins are one of my favorite fall themes and these sweet little pumpkin booties make me smile.  I’m so happy with out they turned out!
September 071
There’s even a matching hat.
September 024
I ♥ them! 
Sweet autumn punkin’ toes in sizes 0-12 months are up in the shop.

What have you all been working on this week?

Pear Raspberry Jam

Oct 008
 A sweet and tangy treat… 
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped peeled ripe pears
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bottled lemon juice
  • 1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin
In a Dutch oven, combine the first 4 ingredients; bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.  Quickly stir in pectin; return to a full rolling boil.  Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat; skim off foam.  Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/2-in. headspace.  Wipe rims and adjust lids.  Process for 10 minutes** in a boiling water canner.    Makes 6 half-pints.
**The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.
