December 20, 2014


We did a whole bunch of baking gifts this year. The treats were housed in these wonderful boxes. We kept them in the fridge and it just cracked me up to see them there!


I had a blast watching the finale 2 episodes of The Voice S7 with Jamie. It's been a great season, and they pulled out the big guns for the final show and it totally rocked. What a fun ride, and so much good music and great singing to enjoy through the entire season.


I know I shared this on Facebook already but making these ears made me so happy yesterday. I am also seriously getting the hang of using the sewing machine which made these puppies in no time flat! Which I found very exciting. I have officially wound a bobbin, treaded it and the machine all by myself. I'm playing with tension, threading… You name it! Once I realized I just want to go crazy with the machine first and just play and make silly stuff, there was no stopping me. Except the noise. Gotta be kind to the neighbours, LOL.

You are totally making me want to check out the show again! I'm glad it's so much fun and entertaining. :)

Those look amazing Suzie! How are they staying together? Are they on a band, or barettes? I love them. So fuzzy and fabulous. I am so glad you are getting the hang of the sewing machine, and ...what you want to use it for! That makes a huge difference. Woohoo!

This season of The Voice was really good. I enjoyed so many of the performances and really was rooting for many of the contestants. A new season starts in February if you want to check it out :)

I sewed the ears onto barrettes and it worked quite well but I am sure you could also sew them to a headband. Thank you! So glad you like them.

That's great you get so much out of The Voice Shannon and yup, I might check it out in February. Thanks for letting me know!

What a great year for The Voice!! The finale was awesome (so much so we even watched some of the songs twice!) and there were so many great contestants to root for. I loved watching it together and was so delighted it was so inspiring and heart-grabbing!

Suzie, those are totally amazing! I just love them. That's so cool to have them on barrettes. And yay you for starting to really get comfortable with the sewing machine. I am deeply impressed!

(very late add for me)

A little house in the fridge! It feels like some kind of optical illusion ;)

It was so much fun to watch The Voice together Jamie, and even re-watching a lot of the finale! What a great season of the show.
