And so here it is, near the end of the year. I love the holidays.
The Christmas china gets put in the cabinets to use on a daily basis, parties get planned and attended, my son comes home and all is good.
In my kitchen are fantastic cookie cutters for making sugar cookies. The cookies will be decorated and given to anyone who visits. There are impression cutters and outline cutters. The impression cutters are my favorites; they have been around my kitchen since 1978 and get used every year. I love filling in the designs with all kinds of colors and sparkling sugar. Since I am making some today, a post on them will soon follow.
We are making candles in my kitchen too. While these were made last year, we make them every year for gifts. They are nice to take along when visiting. Kayla made these for her mom last year. It is always nice when it is cold outside as the process goes along quicker.
My kitchen is busy making all sorts of gifts.
Here is one of my TV shows loaded with all sorts of gift giving ideas from my kitchen to yours! Have fun!
Head over to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial to see all the fun things going on in kitchens across the world.

I love the impression cutters. What a great idea. The videa was excellent. Lots of ideas there.
Those impression cutters make the cutest cookies too. I haven’t been able to find any others I like as much, ever.
I love everything in your kitchen!!

Great cookie cutters! Isn’t holiday baking great? I’m looking forward to your cookie recipe. I like the snow falling on your blog too by the way 🙂 How festive. Merry Christmas!

That plate is just lovely! Thank you for sharing the cooking show too, love the vanilla extract!
Thanks, Lizzy. I think the December IMKs are my favorite. Isn’t it great to peek inside all these kitchens!
Thanks for dropping in.
Wow! I recognize some of those cutters (snowman, etc) from when I was a kid – making and decorating spritz cookies. Wish I still had mine!
