Things We Find Pinteresting Thursday #23

Good morning everyone!  Is everyone over the candy hangover and Christmas craziness?  What does everyone do with all their leftovers from Christmas dinner?  Since today is another Pinteresting Thursday, I thought the perfect theme this week would be "Casseroles".   Show us how creative you can be with your leftovers, or your favorite Pinterest pin or board.

Here are a few of mine:

Now that you have taken all of those holiday photos, what are you to do with them?

Get them off your camera, out of your computer and into your memory albums with scrapbook pages created with the Cricut. 

If your new to Cricut, it's simple to use and they have lots of projects posted in their project center to help get you started.

Cookie Gift Containers With Chalkboard Printable Label

I found this cute project on Pinterest and instantly fell in love with the idea.  These chalkboard printable labels made these containers.  She had applied them to her containers with paper tape, so I hopped on-line and found some festive tape that I thought would work.  Then I went looking for the containers.

Holiday Advent Calendar

I meant to post this weeks ago, since now it's way to late for this year.  But at least it will be posted in time for next year!  :)  It's super cute, even more so in person than in the photo.

I found this project on another web site, and they have a great tutorial listed--so I'm not going to post a tutorial.  I'll just list their link:  Homemade Christmas Advent Calendar

Things We Find Pinteresting Thursday #22

Happy Thursday!  Only five more days 'til the jolly man in red arrives.  Is everyone feeling the Christmas crunch or are you finished up and enjoying the last few days stress-free?

Since we are so close to Christmas, this week's theme is Candies and Sweets.  Everyone enjoys a extra sweetness this time of year, right?  Here are a few of my favorites from my Sweet Tooth board.

White Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies


Day 9--White Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies.
Wow, these cookies were easy!  And they look great.  I, myself, am not a mint eater, so they don't appeal to me, but the mint eaters in my family loved them. 

Sorry, I don't seem to have a nice picture of them boxed or on a plate to post.  My daughter, daughter-in-law and I got together one Sunday afternoon and baked a bunch of cookies, we tried to stay organized and take photos of everything so I would have them to post, but it seems this one got away from us.  :)
1 package Oreo cookies
6 ounces white chocolate
1 package crushed peppermint candies

1. Melt white chocolate.

2. Dip each Oreo in the white chocolate, then lay out on a paper towel or baking rack.

3. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.

4. Let them cool for about 30 minutes.
