Hanukkah - days 2 and 3

On the second day of Hanukkah we lit the candles early and went to see the Menorah Lightning in front of our new grocery store. It was cold but not like it could be in December. The kosher sushi that was provided by the store warmed our hearts (at least the heart of one not so little girl). Cookies with blue sprinkles were also a hit. After that we run to the store to warm up and had dinner from the deli. Very low key. Ofir stayed at home sick. 

Yesterday I tried the new recipe of corn and chicken cutlets. (It is fried in oil so it fits the theme). I thought it was pretty good but the girls voted it down.

I didn't hear too much complains about the gifts, so at least in the gifts area we are doing good so far.

Day 2: Lila - Claire's giftcard, Ella - Michael's giftcard, Eli - Race cars stickers
Day 3: Lila - First 2 books in Figure Skating Mystery by Alina Adams - Murder on Ice and On Thin Ice, Ella - blue clubs for rhythmic gymnastics, Eli - Shape by Shape game

On the scrapping front I made tons of cards in the last few days, and I mean tons. 25 cards for a friend that ordered them from me and 18 cards for Eli's teachers. I will share the pictures later. Meanwhile, my last two projects for Tuesday Trio.

For Sketch 98 challenge we were asked to use an inspirational photo. I took the color combo of white and different shades of green. 

For Sketch 97 we were asked to use a technique we didin't use for a while. For me it is a dry embossing. I took out my Fiskars texture plates and embossed a piece of Core'dinations cardstock. I punched out the circles and layered them on top of misted Martha Stewart doilies.


I plan to make potato latkes tonight using my dad's recipe. I'd better start moving. I'll b back with more Hanukkah pictures and more crafty projects tomorrow.
