Wow, we have quite the nor'easter (rain and wind - no snow) going on here!  And it is only going to get worse.  They are already talking about calling off colleges and schools tomorrow.  Yikes!  And yesterday was such a pretty day!  Stay dry, everyone!

Oh well, I am using the time indoors to prepare for my Christmas Punch Class on Saturday.  I just love making punch art!  Here is a little glimpse of what we'll be doing on Saturday.  Click HERE for more info!

Below is the Reindeer Poop that my daughter, Jenni, and I are demonstrating at our November workshops. We also did a Magic Reindeer Food version as well, posted here with Rudoph's girlfriend, Clarice:  MAGIC REINDEER FOOD.  Jenni wanted to do the Reindeer Poop with the Kisses instead of the usual Chocolate Covered Raisins.  The topper would work with either and the bottom picture shows the tags you could put on the back for either one.  You pick whichever one you would like to share!

I woke up with such a scare when I heard Santa call...
"Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts".
I got an old shovel and started to scoop
neat little piles of "reindeer poop".
But to throw them away, seemed such a waste,
So I saved them, thinking ~ you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile,
Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he rose in the sky ~
"Well, they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"
