Thanksgiving Pie and Monday Deals


I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend and ate lots of pie and other treats.  This year I made cherry pie - just to be different!

Our Thanksgiving was nice but my husband caught a bad cold last week and I have been fending the germs off with Airborne and soup while I take care of him!  So I haven't been out to the stores for the sales.  Fortunately there are a lot of deals to be found shopping online.  I thought I'd share a few of the places I have been shopping and let you all know about some great offers and some free digital items too. (Some of the links below are affiliate links and if you shop using my links I may make a small commission - your price remains the same. I appreciate your support - thanks!)

There are fabulous deals still available on the Cricut site (links to Cricut are affiliate links).  There are special prices and bundles for Explore machines.  I just got my new Explore Air2 set up to start testing it and the increased speed for cutting paper and writing is really great.  I will be posting a review of the new machine soon - I want to do some more testing cutting different materials first.

I posted  photo of my lattice pie crust cutter that I used to make my cherry pie for our family Thanksgiving dessert buffet on Facebook and several people have asked me where to get one.  I have had mine for years but I think they are still readily available in specialty kitchen shops. 



I also found several styles of cutters on Amazon and have linked to a similar one above that is very inexpensive and has free Prime shipping if you have Prime (affiliate link).


November is nearly over and Christmas is less than four weeks away - how did that happen!  I haven't put up any trees yet but I hope to get some of them up this week. Here is a little peek at the Santa tree from last year.  I spent a lot of time redoing the lights (they had finally gone bad so I had to take off the original lights) but this year I should just have to carry it up the stairs from our storage room.

Have a happy Monday and let me know in the comments if you find some great deals!

Happy Thanksgiving!


 
Thanksgiving
By Ralph Waldo Emerson

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends.

New for November


Happy November!  It's been an exciting week with Halloween on Monday, an amazing 7th game of the World Series last night, and, on a more personal note, the arrival of my new Cricut Explore Air2!


The new machine adds a "fast mode" for cutting some materials up to two times as fast.  I am not usually in that big of a hurry and I don't do a lot of mass production but there was something about the pretty ivory and gold Anna Griffin version that just was calling my name when the new machines were launched on HSN at the beginning of October.  I tried to resist but ended up ordering late in the day so I was on "extended delivery" with the arrival date projected at November 4th.  So I was excited to see an earlier date when I checked my order status!


I spent a couple of hours sweeping leaves and acorns from our very long driveway so I could keep a sharp eye out for the UPS truck.  I think they are gearing up for holiday deliveries because there were two men on the truck.  They were quite curious about what was in the box and why I was so excited for it to arrive...


I will spend the next few days putting this new machine through some comparisons with my Explore Air to see if I made the right decision.  I know it will be pretty and that it will match my Anna Griffin Cuttlebug machine.  With Christmas coming, I will be doing more multiples of projects so the increased speed should be helpful.


We had a couple of beautiful days to start the month but today it is rainy.  Here are a few photos of the gorgeous leaves and bright blue sky and some of the remaining flowers in our garden.




I hope you had a good time on Halloween.  We had around 30 trick-or-treaters here and it was fun to see their costumes.


Our new house is set at a funny angle, with the front door at the "back" of the house as you approach it, so we had the trick-or-treaters come to the sliding door from the deck to the kitchen.  I didn't do a lot of decorating this year but did have lights to lead the way to the candy!

How many costumed visitors did you have this year?

Happy Halloween!


It's nearly time for Trick-or-Treaters to arrive at our door!  After a lengthy "sabbatical," I am returning to blogging.  Have fun today enjoying the holiday.  Tomorrow, I will begin to fill you all in on what I have been up to and I will be sharing some crafty projects, product reviews and photos again.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Easter!


Happy Easter!  I hope you were able to spend time with family and friends.  We had a quick trip to California last week and it was great to see our little granddaughter (and her parents!).


We returned to New Hampshire in time for Easter at home.  It's hard having family on two coasts since you can't be in two places at the same time.  We loved this photo of our little bunny that we received today!


Before we left I was working on a few new designs - here is a sneak peek.  I will have more details to share soon.
