Up and Running?!

Well , it's been much longer than I expected but I'm back with more photos and more ideas !

My wonderful friend Mike has provided me with new cookie cutters and inspiration!

He's also taken all my photos for me.
      Yeah Mike!!! Couldn't do it with out you!!!
      As I promised , here's a little something three dimensional with the cinnamon dough.

    This pomander ball has a few cloves added and of course smells nice!                       
                          What a great gift!

This one in the photo made it into a "Raffle Basket"
   Mike had a little help taking photos:

                    This is our Assistant ,"Calvin".

He's sure that his help is always needed.
Calvin has been with me for 11 years and quite verse on the crafting world!

The contents of the basket  (without our Assistant)
 The basket contained the pomander ball, a little sack of potpourri mix (cinnamon, of course), 3 ornaments, a teapot trivet, some chocolate foil eggs and 2 sets of hand stamped cards. Approx. $50 worth of treasures.

Here in our  town of Naples, NY we have a volunteer Ambulance Corps.

Mike is very active in the organization. He drives ambulance 3 or 4 days a week depending on the need.

The area American Legion has a benefit dinner for the Naples Ambulance once a month.

This month I wanted to contribute in some way so I donated this basket of Cinnamon Creations.

That's it for now,
lots more to do!

Next time I'll share a little more about the Naples Valley ! (and more cinnamon too!)
Until Then,

Great BIg Gentle Hugs and Blessings, Trudy
