T and a hoT laTTe!

This is my home-made latte ingredients, plus hot coffee.  This is a late afternoon treat for me when I have been a good girl and stayed on my diet.....LOL  It is just a super hot cup of coffee and just a dash of all three ingredients..mmmmmm nice and warm for a chilly late afternoon.  Our days are nice and staying in the mid to low 70' (F) but as the sun goes down so does the temperature, and it is almost dark now.  Elizabeth is sporting root beer float over at Altered Book Lover , but I'm linking up with a hot latte.

Since we last met I have managed to finish deep cleaning my house WOOT! WOOT! now to keep it up...LOL  I also finished 3 Christmas ornaments for the Gecko Galz ornament swap.  Here is what they look like: (I don't think any of them are around for T)

3 for the swap

On for the Hostess
All are at least 3 layers thick before the designer paper and the image, so they are very stout, like a good chip board ornament.  Which is your favorite?  Truthfully, I wanted to keep all of them.....LOL But they all go in the mail tomorrow!

Here is a sneak peek at Fridays DT project for Rogue Redhead Designs blog. 
So what have you been up to this week, and what's in your cup?
Guess I'll just make the rounds and find out.....LOL
I won't be here next week for T, it is time for our annual trip to the dessert for  turkey day, and NO intranet there..(bummer)
So have a blessed Thanksgiving and may it be full of the people you love and lots of laughter (helps burn the calories....LOL)

  1. Ooh, yum, your coffee treat looks delish. I love Torani syrups.

    The ornaments are so pretty and elegant. Your swap partners are going to be delighted!

  2. The latte sounds wonderful and your Christmas decs are just lovely, I love both shapes, there are going to be some very happy swappees out there!!

  3. Once again, I see a sweet theme going on this week. Cream, toffee, and chocolate? You have put my 1/2 and 1/2 I use in my coffee to shame! By the time this T is over, I'm going to have a sugar high!

    I started cleaning my kitchen this week, and I thought of you as I was doing it. I got three double door cabinets cleaned out and reorganized, with only five more to go. Of course, I also have six drawers to clean and straighten, too. At this rate, I doubt I'll be finished by Christmas, let alone Thanksgiving.And that's just ONE ROOM in a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, full basement, house. I kept getting motivated because I remembered you using your new mop to clean your ceiling. I've done that in the past, too. It's good to read you have yours finished. At least I got mine comfortably presentable, just not deep cleaned, in time for my friend to arrive.

    Those are awesome ornaments. Your fellow swappers are going to be glad they have you to swap with! And of course, your hostess is lucky, too. I like her gift the best, but I'm always big on hostess gifts. Bless you, because so many people don't think of the hostess when they send their swap items.

    Now that I've written a book, thanks for joining T today. I'll miss you next week, but have a great Turkey Day, anyway.

  4. I LOOOOVE these pretty ornaments!! WOW, they are awesome, love the design of them and delicate they are, my mom would love them. I love them all but the hostess one is extra special as it should be. The receiver of these will be VERY HAPPY!! I would have a hard time parting with them too.
    What a nice drink to reward yourself with, wish our temps were that warm here.
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
    Thanks for sharing and Happy T Day!

  5. Your ornaments are all beautiful...very lucky swappers to receive those!

    I bet you do enjoy your sweet latte treat very much...

    Happy T day today and next week too ;)

  6. oh I love that Torani syrup since I can get is a treat! Your ornaments are GORGEOUS! I always make an extra for myself when I'm doing a swap...the recipients will be thrilled! Happy Tuesday!

  7. Hi Krisha, these are awesome! So much detail, they are lovely. You are not alone in your stencil madness- I have some 5x7 photo albums I bought to store mine in, so I am probably around the same quantity as you! Started that back when dry embossing with a lightbox was the 'in' thing! Do we never learn? See you tomorrow, lol, hugs Shaz xx

  8. Super cute ornaments!
    Happy Tuesday!

  9. I stayed on my diet, too, so I think I definitely deserve one of those hot lattes! I love all the ornaments--I'm sure the recipients will be very pleased! Happy T Day!

  10. The ornaments are delightful and it is nice that they are "sturdy", I think they hang better that way. Have fun on your get away and just in case ... I'll say Happy Thanksgiving early.


  11. LOL! I came for the WOYWW and was ready to comment...then seen the Torani syrup, became all glassy eyed....seen your gorgeous Ornaments and fell in love....well, now you see why I don't finish projects!

    Great Post!!!!! I wish I was on receiving one of those Ornaments! Beautiful!

  12. The latte sounds delicious!!
    I like the round ornament with the snowflake hanging on it the best. :)
    Late Happy T-Day!
