Guest Blog Post: Keeping Warm in the New Year!
Hello! Janice here with my first guest blog post on Edible Thoughts. I've been in town visiting Stephanie and the fam for the past couple of days. Can you believe this is my first time meeting little miss E? In between reveling in her cuteness and earning my stay by distracting Ev so she doesn't squirm around during diaper changes, Steph and I have had some time to get creative together, like we so often did when we were young. She has kindly agreed to let me take control of the write up of our latest collaboration. Behold, ear warmers!

"Ear warmers? Really?" I hear you saying. Oh, but these are so much more than the boring old headbands that you begrudgingly take out when you finally can't stand the windchill anymore. In addition to being lined with soft, warm fleece, these babies come in an assortment of eye-popping colors and sport a Texas-sized (translation: huge) bow or rose. Stephanie got a brand new serger for Christmas, which she used on this new project, and I finally got a chance to do something fun and crafty after a semester hiding away deep in the recesses of the school library...

|Rose in Marigold (or The Yellow Rose of Texas) -- Can you tell this Texas girl is itching to get back to home base (where it's warm)?|
|Steph's directions were, "Get close to the brick." I may not be good at many things, but I am EXCELLENT at following directions.|

Readers, what are some easy but elegant winter crafts you like to make during the holidays?
P.S. Little miss E got her own ear warmers so she and Mommy can match! (Seen here.)
