Cran-Orange Cookies

 
NOTE: There is still plenty of time to share your favorite Christmas cookie with us. Just mail us the recipe, photo if you have one, and a little "background" about the cookie. Also, if you'd like your blog shared, make sure to include your URL. Then email all the info to weefolkart@yahoo.com!

Below is a recipe Megan sent in from Ducks In A Row. It sounds "yumilicous"! The orange flavored cranberries and cinnamon make them "Holidayish" (imagine how wonderful these must smell when baking!) but the heartiness of the oatmeal make them a cookie to bake year round. Thanks, Megan, for sharing your recipe. Make sure you stop by Ducks In A Row and check out her blog. BTW... if you're not a Wee Folk Art FaceBook fan (I featured these there), scroll down and check out her November 18, 2009, "Half-Pint Pies Are Cute"! I adore these little pies. 

Hi! Megan here from Ducks in a Row with my recipe for Oatmeal Cran-Orange Cookies. I came up with it while trying to re-create a cookie that I got from a bakery. Traditionally,...Read more

Angel Watercolor Paintings

The kids created these beautiful Angels Rejoicing Paintings this week. I got the basic idea for the watercolor technique from Gail at ThatArtistWoman (I love her blog for kid art ideas) and from that I developed our own unique holiday related theme project. This project took us two days and incorporated several of my kids favorite things... painting and glitter!

Check out the Watercolor Angel Painting Directions here or in our Kids Crafts database.Read more

Checkerboard Mittens and Scarf


When we made plans to take a trip to visit my son and his wife, I wanted a project that I could work on in the car, and one that wouldn't be too complicated. I designed this pattern to be attractive but also easy enough that I could knit in the car, while talking to others or watching movies. No complex cables, just a very easy to follow, very repeatable pattern. I think I accomplished both goals. I love the way they turned out... I've been wearing them about town already :) and these patterns are suitable for beginners/advanced beginners.

The directions for the scarf can be found HERE or with our FREE Patterns.

It's a Wrap!

Many blogs participate in what has come to be known as Wordless Wednesdays. This gives bloggers a chance to share photos and to rest their weary fingers. Far be it from us to follow the beaten track. We're considering instituting Wordy Wednesdays. I originally shared this story with readers on December 1, 2008 on One Generation to Another. I hope it brings a smile to your face during your hectic pre-Holiday preparations :)

For any of you that have been with me since last Christmas, you know I've already conceded that I am obsessive, and where Christmas is concerned, certifiably insane! Over the years I've created so many traditions that I need to start preparing for the Holidays in June...truth be told, I should actually begin the day after Christmas when a virtual cornucopia of perfectly good items are being marked down, but I never seem to mustard the internal fortitude necessary to battle the post Christmas crowds! My first real delve into Christmas comes in June when the women in my family go on our annual "Girl's Trip". (The Girl's Trip will require several blog entries to share hair raising adventures...Read more

Visiting My Baby


This past weekend Tim and I headed out to visit my youngest son and his wife in Wisconsin. The children always "Come Home" for the holidays, and we never get a chance to share their holiday decorations. So, this year, we took a long weekend, drove the 7 hours, and had a lovely weekend! It was wonderful seeing their "decked halls", playing with their friends, and watching them observe their own newly growing traditions. One of the things that tickled me the most was watching them make cookies. They worked side by side in the kitchen, one tackling the gingerbread dough; the other Russian Teacakes. (I'll be sharing both recipes soon.) As I watched them I couldn't help but note differences and similarities to our family traditions.

There, on their counter, was their laptop. The screen was split; gingerbread recipe on one side, Russian Teacakes on the other. And, I thought of past generations. My grandmothers seldom worked from recipes, but rather baked from memory and "feel". My mom always had a recipe book propped open in some corner of the kitchen. I print off recipes from our family website. And my children bake directly from their computer. (BTW... since my baking habits could never...Read more

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

NOTE: There is still plenty of time to share your favorite Christmas cookie with us. Just mail us the recipe, photo if you have one, and a little "background" about the cookie. Also, if you'd like your blog shared, make sure to include your URL. Then email all the info to weefolkart@yahoo.com!

I am dying to try this recipe sent in by Rachel at Olives and Yarn. I like pumpkin and I like chocolate, but I never would have thought of combining the two. Now Tim, on the other hand, would consider combining chocolate with ANYTHING! Hmmm... maybe I could actually get him to eat asparagus if I dipped it in chocolate, but I digress! Anyway, we would like to thank Rachel for sharing these yummy looking cookies. Make sure you drop by Olives and Yarn and say hi!

Here is a cookie recipe for Wee Folk Art. This is a favorite recipe in our household. They are really good, and we bake them quite frequently. The original recipe actually came from another site,...Read more
