Oh Happy Day!

Chanukah came early for me this week. My wonderful friend Pinkadotquilts gave me this wonderful Sew Together Bag. 
To say I was elated is putting it mildly. Her workmanship is impeccable. The fabrics are to die for. 
And it looks so unbelievably difficult to construct. I'm not sure I am going to use it because I want it to stay pristine. Check out the paw print fabric too. 
 I just can't stop staring at it. Thank you Kelly. You're the best!

Yesterday, Henry and I made these adorable marshmallow dreidels for our Chanukah celebration on Sunday. 
I did not come up with this idea. It's all over Pinterest if you look for it. It was a great craft for a 2 year old, especially one that loves marshmallows. He definitely ate more than he made. When I picked up the last few dreidels to add the sprinkles ( by this time he was off  playing with his toys) I noticed there was a bite out of each marshmallow! Don't worry, they went in the garbage. 

When I was looking for sprinkles/ colored sugar in my cupboard to use for decorating the dreidels, I found this. At 39 cents, how old do you think this package is?  

I have lots to show after Sunday, when my gifts have been gifted. I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipients. 
Wishing all of my Jewish friends a Happy Chanukah. Enjoy the latkes!


  1. That is a beautiful bag and someday I will try some easier ones to start.
