Bubblegum Mice....

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. We had a nice quiet one at home. I made homemade cranberry sauce for the first time and it came out fantastic! No more canned stuff here.
My house is almost completely decorated for Christmas, did it in a little over one day before Thanksgiving, a record for me :) Of course there is still some tweaking to do.

My 15 year old daughter is getting very crafty and when she saw a gumball snowglobe on pinterest she just had to make one.... well five!  She was collecting gumball machines for awhile, but for the past year they were just sitting in her closet. So she put them to use, along with some of my craft supplies :)

Aren't they adorable?  The silver one was my favorite.
 Each one had a little velveteen mouse in it.

 The biggest one had button snowflakes hanging...
 And she is a little entrepreneur... she sold them all to two local shops. So if you want one, check them out at The Mustard House in Buxton or Tinsel Bright in Gorham.  She is a very happy camper with a little extra cash in her pocket for Christmas shopping.

And speaking of happy campers... this is more of a full and content camper... Mason after Thanksgiving dinner.... he was stuffed!

Tis the season....
