{tying up my apron}







it's time to make another batch of these
don't you love the little wax-paper bags I put them in?
so fast and easy to stitch up with a sewing machine

Make the best of your heart days..... Valentine's Day will be here soon

Sherri Mitchell said...

Hello sweet friend! My goodness, a lovely little apron - and those Cookies!!! How sweet they are, and the best thing, other than the darling wax paper bags, is that you wrote Psalm 139 on each...

You have searched me...O Lord, and you know me....
Book of Psalm is my favorite. xoxo
Have a Happy day Koralee!

Maaike said...

Cute bags and cookies. I need to get thinking about Valentine's. Thanks for the reminder.

wendy said...

that looks like it is a cute apron.
I have an apron that says "A cowgirl should never Weigh More then Her Horse"
Makes me laugh everytime.

You are very creative !!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh I so love your photo here dearest!

Yes my precious one, I am exhausted. I had a sty in my right eye last week and I believe I am getting one in my left eye this morning. A child in my class has something wrong with her eye! Assessments are over for you? YEAH!!!!!!!! Oh dear, do you get a "SPRING BREAK?" Ours is in March and it is a week long break. Are you dreaming of gardens yet? I AM and the joy of quiet days spent here, at the lakes and even traveling to North California for my 30th wedding anniversary!!!!

Well my sweet, another day is before us. Let us smile on and remember this:

Children don't remember what we say.
Children remember what we do (and how we make them feel!)

LOVE!!!!! Anita

Monica said...

I love your little cookie bags, and the cookies are so cute, especially with the little Psalms written on them. A very nice idea. And I'm pretty sure I like your apron, at least from what I can see of it.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
These cookies are so sweet! I love the way you "wrote" Psalm 139 on them.
We are certainly fearfully and wonderfully made!
How blessed we are that He made YOU ♥
Now, I must try sewing up little wax paper bags ~ I just love your ideas, Koralee*

I feel lighter and calmer just finishing up second quarter grades... The first few weeks of a new quarter are always "breezy." :o)

Have a wonderful Friday!
yahoo! The weekend is just around the bend!
Blessings always,
Maria
