Getting Ready for A Craft Show

Hello again blog readers! First of all I wanted to wish my US readers a Happy belated Thanksgiving. Hope you had a wonderful holiday. :) I have been busy getting ready for a craft show we are doing next weekend with a friend of my mom. I am contributing some yo-yo magnets and bags of cat toys. We will be selling our wares in Lancaster, Pa at the Eastern Market's Holiday City Arts Market on December 4th and 5th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. I am excited-Hope we do well.

Black Raspberry Swirled Muffins

I was going to try out another recipe from my muffin book but then I stumbled onto a recipe for Jam Swirled Muffins. I found it on a lovely blog called Technicolor Kitchen-here's the recipe. They are very tasty and I can't wait to try it again with other types of jam. The recipe calls for lemon juice if you need to thin the jam but I used some apple cider. Next time I will go back to my muffin book unless of course I stumble upon another recipe on the net.

Fabric Coiled Bowl

Christmas will be here before we know it so I decided that it was time to start working on some fun gifts. I have been meaning to try to make fabric coiled bowls for a while now. I finally roped my mom into attempting them with me-I don't know how to use a sewing machine yet. I will have to get my mom to teach me how some time. :) Until then we can just do collaborations. I really like how the first one turned out and can't wait to try some more of these out. Here's the tutorial on CraftStylish-Fabric Coiled Bowls.
