Tout It Tuesday - #37

Happy Tuesday!

Can you believe that Christmas is a week away?  We can't and are in a bit of denial about the whole thing.  We haven't finished the Christmas shopping, we aren't finished with the decorating, the house is a disaster/work zone getting ready for my family's Christmas Eve gathering and I have no idea what to make for food for the party. So things are pretty much in chaos.  Here's hoping you all are in much better shape than we are.  On the plus side, the fireplace wall in the living room is coming together and it is looking fantastic. I am hoping that we will get things wrapped up in early January so I can show you what I have been working on.

Now that you are caught up with what we have been up to, it is time for this week's features.

Three-ingredient peanut butter cookies
from The Domesticated Princess
D loves peanut butter cookies since they don't have any chocolate in them. 
(How did I end up with someone who doesn't love chocolate?)

Fabric Rag Basket 
from Handmade by Annabelle

I think I need several of these to hold craft supplies. 
So much cuter than brown cardboard boxes.

Glogg Spiced Wine
from Lazy Budget Chef
Booze and fire are not usually a good combo but when you mix them to make Glogg - it is all good!  Watch out though  because I know this delish drink can pack a punch (I am convinced it is because of the aquavit...that stuff is dangerous!)

Drawer Pull Wine Stopper
from Will Work for Eskimo Kisses

What a great last minute gift idea! Now I just need to figure out how many to make. :-)

Before we get to the party, just a couple of other things.

Second, the Winter Wonders & Holiday Happenings linky party hosted by Claiming Our Space, Black Fox Homestead, Life with the Hawleys, Lilacs and Longhorns, Practically Functional, The Thrifty Rebel and Yellow Spool is still going on until Thursday.  Each of us will have our own project or recipe to share so make sure to stop by to check out what we have each created as well as to link up your own winter or holiday inspired posts.

Now it's time for Tout It Tuesday!

I can't wait to see what people will be share this week and know that I will be inspired by everyone's projects and recipes.

Just a few rules/guidelines.

1. I would love it if you would follow through GFC or Bloglovin'. It would be great if you would also follow us on Twitter and Pinterest.

2. Please do not link shops or link parties that are not related to a project, photo or recipe challenge. Everything else is accepted.

3. Linking to Claiming Our Space isn't required but I would appreciate it if you would grab my button and either display it with the post you are linking up or under your list of parties.

4. Don't forget to click on the "like" button on your favorite project or recipe so I know which one should be the week's Fan Fav.

5.  Please try to visit at least two posts for each link you submit and leave a comment.  Comments make everyone happy!

If you have a Holiday or Winter themed link up, make sure to also link up to the Winter Wonders and Holiday Happenings party going on until Thursday!

With all that out of the way, let's get the party started!
