Advent-weekend 18, 19, and 20

small felt balls, originally uploaded by *nichole*.

This past weekend we attended church and stayed close to home-and that's about it really. We looked at Charlie Brown Christmas on Saturday night-which I absolutely love. One of our Advent readings this weekend was from Revelation 21:1-7. My favorite verse from this passage is"Anyone who is thirsty may drink from the spring of the water of life. It doesn't cost anything" verse 6.
For Advent craft/gifts the girls and I made some felt balls and then the following evening they received a blank journal.
My candy making skills have been lacking lately. I have made two batches of toffee so far and both have been off. The first one was a bit salty-the second batch overheated and has a faint burnt taste. Last year I was on a roll with the toffee, so I'm a bit bummed out I'm having so much trouble with it this year. I even went out and got myself a new candy thermometer. I'm not deterred yet, but I am getting a little tired of not maximizing the loveliness of so much sugar and butter together-I won't give up, at least not yet (:


  1. Don't give up Nichole. :-) These felted balls look amazing!

  2. Thanks Libby!
    Don't worry I won't give up yet, I purchased more sugar and butter just this evening.
