Back to crafting and baking

I took a hiatus from sewing bags and basically crafts in general.  But recently, I have become addicted to Pinterest and am getting the bug to be creative again.  So, with inspiration from photos I saw on Pinterest, I did some crafting and even some baking today.  First, I made some fabulous blondies with pink and red M&Ms.  Ethan loved making them.

Then, we baked a cranberry pie.  It was delicious, although I would probably cut the sugar by about half.  I really enjoy the tartness of the cranberries and don't think it needs that much sugar.  But it is still absolutely fabulous. 

And finally, I've been thinking for a while that I wanted to create some felt hearts for Valentine's Day.  I'd like to make a garland for the fireplace, but I think it might take a while to complete it.  But I'm going to see how far I get.  And so far, I've made one heart!  I had some inspiration from a photo on Pinterest, but I created my own design.  It took me about 2 hours to make one heart, so I am not sure if I'll be able to finish the garland.  Maybe the other ones will be simpler.

With wintertime here, hopefully I'll get more crafting done!
