These ornaments sure make it smell like Christmas in my house. I first made these years ago when my daughters were in grade school. We got a bunch of cookie cutters at a garage sale and went to town making them. In the picture are a few that they made then. And the three of us made more a couple of years ago. It's amazing how well they keep their scent. Every year when I put them on my tree the whole room smells like cinnamon. I store them in zip lock bags. Here's the recipe on how to make them.
Cinnamon Dough Ornaments
1. Mix 1/2 c. ground cinnamon and 1/2 c. applesauce until it makes a dough.
2. Sprinkle cinnamon on work surface and roll out dough. You can place dough between wax paper and roll out.
3. Cut desired shapes with cookie cutters.
4. Poke hole in shape with toothpick for hanging the ornament; for a larger hole, use a drinking straw.
5. Place in dehydrator or 150 degree F oven until dry.
6. Use spring or ribbon to hang your ornaments.

Can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week! Wow...where has the year gone. I managed to make up these Santa's today while babysitting my little 4 month old granddaughter. She is growing so fast. I love to hear her chatter and giggled. And her smile just melts your heart. I listed these Santa's on ebay tonight if you want to check them out. Thanks!!

The second day we were there is snowed!! I guess it was very rare for that to happen this time of the year. We got a special treat. We drove up into the mountains that day where there were a few inches more then where we were staying. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was with the fall leaves and the snow. We stopped at one of the waterfalls and got some awesome pics as you can see. Below is a picture of my daughter and son in law.

It's great to be back home from our vacation to North Carolina. We had a great time! I'm still working on getting my pictures together so I can post them on here. Got some beautiful pictures of the fall leaves in the mountains. I really needed the break from sewing. I feel energized and ready to sew again. I made these 3 christmas tree make do's today in no time. They are listed on ebay now. Hope you will stop by and take a look.
