Thanksgiving Bracelets

I've been a busy little beaver lately between going to school full-time, working and creating new designs.  Creating new designs has to be my favorite thing to do, though.  I can work on projects for 12 hours a day and it never feels like work to me.  Now - if I can only do it full-time for a living, that would be GREAT!  :)

In any case, here are some Thanksgiving bracelets I made for this season.  They feature wooden pieces which were decoupaged with vintage Thanksgiving images on one side, and painted on the other.  Beads which complement the painted sides surround the portrait charms.  The best part about these bracelets is that they are very lightweight and don't weigh down the arm.

In any case, if you want to see all of the new Thanksgiving bracelets I made for this season, you can check them out on my EBay or Etsy pages.

Also - if you've been following my craft room remodel project - I'm happy to tell you there will be more pics to come shortly.  The room is just about done. Thank goodness!  Stay tuned....

Easy Apple Pie Tarts - Perfect for Thanksgiving (or Anytime)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love to make extra special baked treats for the ones I love on the holidays.  However, I'm not one to make pie crusts or dough from scratch.  I admit it - I just don't have the patience to do it.  Instead, I like to come up with recipes that taste like they are made from scratch, but involve less hassle.

For breakfast this morning, I made Apple Pie Tarts and Cherry Tarts for my family.  The great thing about this recipe is you can use whatever pie filling you'd like.  These are also really good served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel ice cream topping.  I hope you enjoy making - and sharing - these tarts as much as I do.



1 can apple pie filling
2 cans biscuits (I use Pillsbury Grands, but anything will work)
1 stick melted, salted butter
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Sprinkle a pinch of sugar-cinnamon mixture onto the work surface.  Place one biscuit onto the mixture and roll it out with a rolling pin.  Place one tablespoon of pie filling onto the center of the biscuit.

Fold the left side of the biscuit over to the right side so edges meet and filling is covered.  Crimp edges with a fork.

Brush melted butter over both sides of the biscuit; roll entire biscuit into cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool on pan for a couple of minutes and place on serving plate.  Enjoy!
