I created this blog to share with my friends and families about what I love about life. Most of the entries may focus on the Little guy but will occasionally add my Other Love (Hubby, family; Love of creating; Drawing; Mixed Media art; Photography, Beading and Wire Art).

Christmas Baking - Day 2: Cherry Walnut and Sugar Cookie Cutouts
I prepped the Cherry Walnut on Tuesday but I didn't bake it until tonight night along with the Sugar Cookie Cutouts. Aidan requested Sugar Cookie Cutouts and voila. I've always dreaded rolling out dough (I'm not sure why). This year it seemed easier to do the sugar cookies - easier in rolling out the dough, doing the cutouts and the icing. I guess it's true when they say practice makes perfect. I don't know about perfect, but it didn't take me eons to do it.
The Cherry Walnut also has some dried cranberries with it.
All these cookies are for my cookie exchange with my friends this Friday.

Welcome to my blog entry for the OWOH - One World One Heart Event where bloggers get to meet new friends, renew friendship and get inspired. I live in Ontario, Canada. I'm a mixed media artist and love to create with different media. I love making cards, creating beaded jewelry; journaling and taking photographs. I'm a night owl and do most of my work at night when my little guy is asleep. I also teach at a local rubberstamp and scrapbook store. My hubby is very patient with my abundance of art supplies, packed in the basement. My little guy is also very creative and I try to post his creation on my blog. I have a black cat - Minx who adopted us six years ago.

For art Aidan had to create a MOLA design. His art inspired me to make one on my Journal.
"Mola or Molas, is a hand-made textile that forms part of the traditional women's clothing of the Kuna people. The full costume includes a patterned wrapped (saburet) a red and yellow. Themola, ormolas, is a hand-made textile that forms part of the traditional women's clothing of theKuna people." In Dulegaya, the Guna's native language, "mola" means "shirt" or "clothing". The mola originated with the tradition of Guna women painting their bodies with geometric designs, using available natural colors; in later years these same designs were woven in cotton, and later still, sewn using cloth bought from the European settlers of Panamá.. The source for traditional design inspiration for Molas include the following: natural-world native animals (iguanas, lizards, parrots, fish), local vegetation (palm trees, coconut crops, sea grasses), and t…
