Every year during the holiday season my daughter’s school encourages all students to contribute to their chosen charities.
Students, bake, cook, do crafts, sell paintings, just about absolutely anything their heart desires to make some money for their charities.
Marketplace at school is an exciting day, and a learning experience. Students get the chance to learn about helping others, organizing their time, creating something that others want to buy, and learn about marketing their products.
This year my daughter with her best friend decided on baking cupcakes with flavors of the season. Minty wonderland, caroling coffee, ginger bells, and fa la la vanilla. After spending an entire Saturday afternoon baking, they had 40 cupcakes ready for sale. And the night before the market, couple of hours was spend making beautiful, delicious frosting in holiday colors.
After driving to school, very cautiously, and an hour early to grab a good table, they were ready to sell.💰
The jolly cupcakes were a hit.🧁🧁😋👍
You are in luck because every style is in for fall & winter. Oversized or cropped sweaters, slim cut cashmeres, and chunky popcorn knits are also very in for this winter.
I personally love big cable sweaters (sort of a fisherman’s look) and when I need to dress up a bit, a very thin cashmere keeps me warm, and I also add layers for a more stylish look.
Long sweaters are always stylish since you can wear them with leggings, wide-legged pants, or skirts.
Cropped sweaters are a cool look and it is still in for this winter and a much better look to me unless your belly button is peeking out.
Colors are also a very important aspect of clothing, so remember rust colors are in this year.

Cotton is a fiber that grows from a plant, and flannel is a way the fibers are woven together; that’s the only difference between the two. Flannel is made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fiber. Vegetable flannel is made from Scots pine fibre.
Flannel sheets, are warm, soft, and absolutely wonderful to cuddle in when it is cold and blustery outside.
Getting ready to cook and entertain as we get closer to take a break to celebrate the Holiday Season with family and friends.
We hope and wish for everyone to have a happy, safe, and relaxing time with family and friends.
