a week of merry making

In an otherwise crazy busy and sometimes overwhelming time of year (what with everything drawing to a close and much celebration) I find the process of making gifts, baking, and decorating for Christmas a soulful pause, a time for reflection and nourishment.  

For the next seven days that remain before Christmas I am going to share a different edible, useful or decorative merry making project... if you feel like joining in please leave a comment with a link to your blog so I can share each other's endeavours.

meanwhile, tune in later this afternoon for three french sweet recipes.
