NUTCRACKER'S GRANNY is finished just in time to celebrate ringing in the New Year!  So happy today, my brand new 3700 Epsom printer is up and running and corrected to my WIFI so I've been able to finish my orders and post them on Wednesday!  Now if I can just get my Quick Books organized life would be perfect.  Plan to spend January drawing up some snowmen and punching a few...Gathered lots of watercolor supplies and have not abandoned the idea of turning some of my designs into watercolor prints.  I've saved the best news til last... Hattie, Rizzo & I are going to get new puppy.  It she or he is expected to be born January 17th and will come home on March 16th.  It's another  Australian labradoodle from the Larbradoodle Corral!  Keep on punchin and Watch this space.

Almond Thumb Cookies
Blossom Cookies
CHRISTMAS TABLE...I had an entirely different day planned for today, but LIFE got in the way.  3 deigns to draw up, 3 covers to print out then off to Post orders, a stop at the bank with Rizzo where he always scores a treat, and a dash into Sendiks for lettuce, kale, a cucumber, and a jar of jam!   The problem occurred when the printer with 2 brand new ink cartridges would not PRINT.  Needless to it's the life blood of my business.  So after a couple of hours of research on line, Amazon will be delivering me a brand new Ipson (I've only had Cannons before) all in one on SUNDAY.  So hopefully I'll be able to have it up and running and printing by Monday so I can complete my orders and resume my plans!  I though this might be a good time to show you some of my Holiday decorations (most have collected over several years) and some cookies.  Happy to send any recipes please email me if you like.  Keep on punchn
