Welcome to the second week of the December 2019 blog hop where "You're the Star"!

Work in Progress

It's Creative week here on the 'You're the Star' blog hop, and no season could be more appropriate. 

With the holidays ramping up and family and friends connecting more so than ever, the creative juices have been flowing around here on the homestead. Love tends to drive us to create.

For example, we just finished another round of art nights, where everyone in the family gathers and simply creates art in a slow, methodical and close sort of way. 

We tell stories, get feedback and provide encouragement to develop our own artistic styles. For myself, I'm into pastel charcoals, while Wendie is working diligently to master pen and ink drawing. The kids seem to choose something different every night!

As part of our creative outlet, we're also baking like there's no tomorrow. In the spring and summer, there doesn't seem to be enough time to do it all that much. Also, who wants to drive up the temperatures in the house from baking when its 85 degrees outside?

Our Christmas celebrations always include homemade sweets, and to that end, we're sharing a great many of our recipes over on the Homesteading With Unexplained Underfoot Objects blog. Stop in a check a few out:)
