Monday Made It -- Let it Snow!!

It has been a snowy day here in southeastern Wisconsin!  I guess you could say that winter has arrived.  It actually was kind of nice -- I could sit inside and watch the beautiful snow fall outside with a nice mug of cocoa and I didn't have to go anywhere.  Pure heaven!  My Puggle, Rosie, also enjoyed watching the snow fall.

The snowy day also gave me some time to finish up some crafting projects for this month's Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics.
Most of my creative energy this past month has gone into getting my home ready for Christmas.  I made some wreaths to hang on the doors and got out a cute table runner for the kitchen table.

My mom and I were at a craft fair last weekend and she mentioned that there were not a lot of holiday decorations in more modern colors.  Her tree and house are decorated in purples and turquoise so I made her this wreath.  She was very happy!  :)
I also made my annual batch of Peanut Brittle -- my husband's favorite!  I found a new recipe this year that uses the microwave rather than an hour on the stove top.  It is delicious and so easy that I will probably make a few more batches.  (Peanut brittle never lasts long in our house! :)  You can find the recipe here.
I'm looking forward to catching up on other "Made Its" at 4th Grade Frolics!  Have a great week!!

Since I am posting this on Sunday and if you are looking to link up with my weekly linky party, A Peek at My Week, just scroll down to the next post and link up!  (I'm just trying to stay ahead of the game during this crazy time of year. :)


  1. I am always envious of everyone that makes the GORGEOUS wreaths! You did a fabulous job. One day I will attempt this! The peanut brittle would not last long in my house either...looks yumm-o! I always giggle when I read your puppy's name...Rosie is my nickname that everyone calls me at school, including the kids!

  2. Jennifer~ You were so crafty this weekend! My sister made similar wreaths over the Thanksgiving holiday and I was so jealous because I couldnt make one! I had no way of getting it home without crushing it! Your table runner is beautiful!
    Enjoy your week!

  3. Love LOVE LOVE your wreaths. You have been busy. I need to try some peanut brittle. Haven't had any in years.Thanks for the recipe.

  4. That is an easy recipe, and I do not like peanut brittle, which means I won't eat any...which makes it perfect for holiday gifts!

  5. I will be checking out this peanut brittle immediately!

  6. Your wreaths are too cute! And I would love to sit and watch it snow!! Southern Problems!
