Come and join us for Tuesday Turn About link party.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas! Welcome the holiday season with this collection of fun and festive Christmas ideas! Tuesday Turn About Link Party #177

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a fabulous start to the week!

Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Turn About! I can’t believe that we’re already half-way through November and that Thanksgiving is next week. It feels like this month is flying by!

Have you started decorating for Christmas, or do you wait until after Thanksgiving? I have started adding a just few holiday touches. We are hosting Thanksgiving, so we will be waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to decorate our tree. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way to approach holiday decorating. I say that you should do what makes you and your family happy.

So even though I haven’t decked the halls quite yet, I am really excited for the upcoming holiday season. And of course, there’s nothing like a little snow to get you into the holiday spirit. Here in Connecticut, we are expecting our first snow of the season today! It’s really beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Are you ready to get this party started?

In case you missed it, we had shared some fantastic ideas your Thanksgiving celebration. You can read all about them HERE. We crafty with some fun and creative seasonal craft ideas. You can learn more HERE! And, last week we started sharing some holiday inspiration. You find it all HERE.

Be sure to head over to My Wee Abode and Reinvented Delaware to check out EIGHT additional features from Tuesday Turn About! If you haven’t been featured at My Family Thyme this week, you may have been featured there!

Before we check out this week’s new features, let’s get some helpful tips.

Household Tip

In preparation for holiday baking time, I had shared some of my favorite baking tips, like this simple tip to help keep brown sugar soft and this tip to soften butter quickly. This trick will help make cold butter easier to work with while making a pie crust. I also shared one of my favorite baking products.

This week’s tip will help you with cookie baking. Do you ever have the problem of cookie dough getting stuck in your cookie cutters? The solution is simple. Dip your cookie cutters into flour with each cut.

If you don’t want to add additional flour, there’s another solution…unflavored non-stick spray. Just give the cookie cutter a spray and it will keep the dough from sticking.

Likewise, if you have the problem of dough getting caught in your cookie scoop, give your cookie scoop a spray with unflavored, non-stick spray. This will help your cookies be a uniform size and shape. Happy Baking! 🙂

Julie’s Blogging Tip

Quick tip…

Remember to clean-up your email list each month. If your email provider has a ‘purging’ tool (most do), using it will help you analyze your stats more clearly and you won’t have to pay for those that are not your true audience. 🙂
