Favorite Christmas Pins on Pinterest

What has consumed all my blogging time lately, one might ask?  The response would include a mix of many of the following:  my day job, holiday parties, Christmas programs, a trip to Silver Dollar City in Branson to see Christmas lights, shopping, baking, wrapping packages, cookie exchange at my home and I can’t forget to mention cooking, cleaning and stocking my kitchen for the holiday season.  Eating out has been a regular routine lately and that makes me weary and very little to blog and photograph, but January is on the horizon and a possible blizzard, snow days at school and a well-stocked kitchen will provide blog posts for the future.  When my evenings wind down and I’m too keyed-up to sleep, I sometimes turn to Pinterest to relax before hitting my  fluffy pillow.  Here are some of my recent favorite pins on my Christmas board at Pinterest. 

Let’s start with pretty and then I’ll show you
cute.  These irresistible O’ Tannenbaum
Cupcakes by Better Homes and Gardens
are stunning!  
I follow Bakerella on a regular basis. Look at these 
amazing Candy Cane Christmas Trees.  Too cute!

More cute to share.  I saw these and thought, “Wow,
some people are so creative!”  These Santa Hat Brownies
come to us via Daisy’s World blog.  

I actually made these Colorful Spiral Cookies. 
Are they not beautiful??
My spirals were not as precise on the design, but
they were still very colorful and tasty.  I used 
Christmas sprinkles (stars and trees). 
I also found a great new blog to 
follow when I found these cookies
on Pinterest.  Sprinkle Bakes is my new found
friend!  Forgot to mention…
these were the cookies I shared at 
our annual cookie exchange.  

If I don’t talk to you again soon, before Christmas…
Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 my friends.
I appreciate your support and hope you will continue to
