Busy week crafting and baking

This week I have spent my time crafting and baking in the mornings.  My daughter Cassandra has been going to summer school in the mornings, while my youngest daughter is attending vacation bible school and my oldest daughter and husband are volunteer with VBS at our church.  I still have not been able to complete the projects, but I have most of the sewing done. 

Fourth of July cookies

I was trying to make Fourth of July cookies, but the colors I used were not bright enough (this happens when you use regular food coloring instead of cake decorating gel colors). 

Chocolate Chip and raisin scones

These scones were so delicious.  I made them for our fellowship get-together and everyone loved them.  I got the recipe from one of my favorite cooking blogs.

Friendship bracelets

My youngest and I made nineteen friendship bracelets and just sent them off to Craft Hopes Project 12 - Orphan Outreach.  The bracelets will be going to the orphanages in Russia.  Check out Craft Hope website to read all about the project.
