  1. I might just have to open a few bottles of wine to get some corks to make these. Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. Hope to see you back next week.

  2. I really like the idea of revisiting favorite pictures from the year and then saving them in a memory box for you and your family. I am completely impressed that you are managing such lovely cooking, baking, gifting, and decorating with three small children. and you gave that cork idea, it’s really different.
