Santa’s Hat brownie dessert

I am sure if you are on pinterest….or follow me…you may have seen this. But I know many of my friends aren’t on pinterest so I wanted to share this with you too. How flippin cute is this dessert?!?! I made this for the teachers Christmas lunch the other day and I thought they turned out sweet.
Very easy….looks like it takes much longer than it actually does!!

Oh my so cute right?!?! One 13 by 9 pan made about 25 hats.
I baked a pan of brownies (family size) and let cool. Cut out with a small round cutter your circles. Set on your plate.

You could make a buttercream frosting….but I was going for quick and easy. I just put some canned frosting in a ziploc, snipped the corner…and made little circles for the strawberries to sit on. Place a small little dot of frosting on top of the strawberry! That’s it. How cute!!! Again I say, how cute?!?!
Maybe leave some for the guy in the big red suit????
Here is the source for the original
PS, if you would like to get on pinterest I can email you an invite….just email me

Grab a favorite muffin and warm coffee and enjoy a little tour of the decorations at night. I hope you enjoy :)

Candles in the windows….
I miss all the lights in January when we have to take them all down.
So festive and bright!
Enjoy the season…:)

Handpainted Snowman

I used to do a bunch of hand painted clothing when my daughter was younger. It was an easy way to make a special outfit for the holidays..and not spend a whole bunch. I recently made a jean set for a friends daughter and I thought I would document it in case you wanted to give it a go.
Video taping and painting at the same time is kind of hard…I apologize for the camera shake. I hope you get the point though. If you are just starting out…maybe start with a old shirt that you aren’t worried about…then as you feel more confident you can do a new shirt. It is basic geometric shapes, along with a few shades of paint and layering. I hope you go for it…it is just paint after all!

I use Tulip brand paints. I think they dry the softest and wear the best after washing.

Here is the youtube video….again…I apologize for the shaky camera :)
