Sip a cup of tea with me....

I had a very hard time thinking of a gift to make for my Grandparents for Christmas. I finally came up with the idea of getting them tea(for grandma) and coffee(for grandpa) and some homemade cookies. But of course I needed something to put them in right?? So I looked through my box of goodies and found a balsa wood tray.

I painted it, and added the decorations. The tea cups were cut from a pattern that Celina found for me.(Its very hard to find The "steam coming from the cups were cut out using the Slice and the Basics 3 card. The title was also cut from the same card. Cleina(she is awesome when I am stuck!!) also helped me with the title. I really like how this came out.

Killer Icicle's

Around here right now all of the houses have tons of Icicles on them. Some of them are very big and some are not. The picture shows one that is across the street from us. That thing is HUGE!!! It was a few inches longer but it melted before I thought to take a picture.
