A good Sunday morning to you! I'm trying to get some work done for next week tonight (Saturday), but I do have a couple of snippets to share that I've just finished for Ellen's blogs in the last couple of days. First, here's a simple card with a Spellbinders die frame--card recipe and details are posted here.
Next, I worked on a mini album for the In Touch newsletter (some favorite Christmas recipes), posted here. (A .pdf of four recipes is posted there as well--end of the fourth paragraph. I sometimes leave out up to 1/2 lb. of the powdered sugar in the coconut bars, adding extra coconut to get it to a workable consistency. My guys don't seem to notice the difference.) I was pleased with the mini album, though I wish I'd gotten a few more spreads finished. All in good time! This project was a challenge for me though: one of the guidelines was to use stamps and cardstock--no patterned papers. . . (I survived, but no doubt sustained some psychological trauma. ;-D)
Here are a couple of little details from there--the front cover with a Kim Hughes snowman, and some of the coconut bars that I made Friday so that I could get a picture for my album. (Don't tell my sweet husband--he thinks I made them just because he loves them, and I love him. He does, and I do, but I needed that picture!)
Edited to add: I'm answering so many e-mails asking for the recipe that I thought I'd just post it here too.

It's still sweet enough for most people that way. Enjoy!
Just a note: This month's In Touch newsletter had a coupon at the bottom of the newsletter, valid November 23 through November 28. If you don't already receive the e-newsletter, you still have time to sign up and take advantage of the coupon code sale if you'd like. The link to sign up is at the bottom of this page, and you don't have to worry about frequent mail or junk mail; In Touch comes out only once a month and always focuses on educational projects.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
