Day 3- Sweets…the edible and the huggable kind…


I know I know…do we really need sweets?…Um yes…We left one day open in our line up of 12 days in case something came up that we wanted to promote…well…nothing did …so we thought we would help another little business and sell what we think is a great must have can’t live life without item…

In our Subscription Wooly Boxes we always include two of these  big caramels that are made by a local candy maker…Some of the box subscribers have stated they want to be able to buy more…cause two really aren’t enough…so…here they are..they are .45 cents each or 1lb for $10 approx 25 caramels...Order Caramels HERE.

Yesterday… It was sleep over at MiMi’s house…Jace came to trim the tree…and help me make candy…He wears his little elf hat and slippers that Sharon made him so proudly!IMG_8071

Only a little chocolate on the face and shirt…

It’s bath time ALWAYS here and Mimi found some new glow thing-ies for the bath… (Thanks Kristi, he loved for more colors!!)

IMG_8074I hope you are enjoying getting ready for your Holiday(s)…I am baking cookies today with my Sister…we are making one of her Mom’s recipes…I’ll let you know how that goes…

So to make today easy…enter a name in the comment section of a person who is special to you…you just have to enter the name unless you want to give an explanation why…

I will be giving away a secret something (plus the caramels) I have from market for this post Jan 1st!

Have a sweet Sunday!!! LB

    My son A.J. (Arthur Giles Potter IV) he is my heart and soul. We were married 1 month shy of 12 years when my favorite person in the world was born. When he was 6 yrs. old he gave me a reason to fight breast cancer and all it’s horrible lasting effects and setbacks. He’s now 20 in his 3rd yr. of college with a major in mechanical engineering. I’m so proud of him and the generous, caring, hardworking person he’s become.

    Making cookies with little ones is special, as is making them with a special sister. My young freshly graduated granddaughter left a couple of weeks ago to work at Powder King, a ski resort on the other side of our country in BC. It is heart wrenching, but everyone of us applaud her trying out her wings, and wish her the very best experience. This will be the first Christmas we will not see her open her gifts and enjoy her stocking from Santa. Love her forever

    Very nice of you to share your family with us. I love the tree skirt. Do you have it in a kit

    1. lisabongean Avatar

      Phyllis…I do have it in a kit for a smaller tree like 18” the pattern is in Christmas Gathering book..I enlarged it…the kit for wool tree skirts are expensive so that is why I do not have one…but if you want to enlarge the pattern and order about 2 yds of wool you can!

    My mom, my role model and my quilting buddy. Now the roles are reversed. My siblings and I are her caregivers, trying to provide for her the love and support and security that she gave all of us for most of her life.

      Sheryl F. She is my dad’s cousin but has been a great friend to me, especially in the last 4 weeks. Always available to talk and pray. Life has been very stressful due to recent rotator cuff surgery and the sudden death of the mom of my 16 and 17 yr old stepkids. Sheryl has been there for me.

    Wow. Thanks Lisa. My husband and I actually visited Menasha in September to visit Primitive Gatherings and to buy some caramels. We brought back 2 lbs for a friend and 2 lbs for us. Still have some. My husband and I share the caramel from the wool box each time. Will there be candy in the Christmas box too? Am hoping it arrives before Christmas, feel like a kid again waiting for Santa. Thanks for making Christmas so special this year.

    Just got your book “Wool, Needle and Thread” yesterday from a local quilt shop 12 days of Christmas promotion. Absolutely love it. Will be using it as a resource for sure.

    Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
