There, there Wolf

Again some crafting fun for Nerd battle... This challenge was vampire vs werewolf. I chose werewolf. I went cute as opposed to my normal leaning, but I think he turned out nice. He's just a little standing pillow. Lots and lots of french knots, all of his fur is french knots!

Sauced Applesauce

I've been participating in Nerd Battle on Such a great group and it is so fun to see what everyone creates to fit into the prompts. One of October's battles are "Bottoms Up"- create something inspired by your favorite drink.

Well, my favorite fall drink is apple cider or apple beer with a shot of Fireball whisky. So I decided to make and can some applesauce with some yummy whisky in it. It turned out delicious and I'm having a hard time keeping the family away from it. I am hoping to still have some this winter.

Super Mario Cookies

I'm not very good at baking. Never have been, way too much measuring for me to enjoy myself. I'd rather be decorating them! I did however make a few cookies to try to make the boys happy. They love cookies and they love all things Mario Bros, so brick and coin cookies seemed to be the way to go!
Here are the coin and brick 2D style

And here is a 3D brick. They turned out fun and tasted great!

I purchased the cookie cutters (and some other really fun ones) at
