Christmas At The Miller's 2013


Hello my Friends!  Well now, Christmas has come and gone.  It happens so quickly. Preparing for the Holiday for months then in a blink of the eye, it passes.  I hope that what ever Holiday you celebrated, it was a magical one this year.  Jimi and I came down with a flu like virus on Christmas Eve, so we spent our evening snuggling with our Kitty's.


On Christmas Day, we were still not feeling that well so we opted to stay home.  My Daughter Kelly was having Christmas Dinner this year at her house...we really felt bad not being with the family but we were just not up to leaving the house.  It was definitely a different Christmas for us.  Prior to Christmas, we did have a few friends over to celebrate the Season.  I instagramed this photo of myself after getting ready for our party.

It is such a passion for me to have Friends and Family over to Celebrate The Season!  My Friend Robin took these amazing Photo's from the Evening.

 Champagne Punch♥

 Chicken Salad with Croissants and Grapes.  I add special ingredients to my Chicken Salad to make it extra yummy♥ 
 A  Colorful Cookie Tray♥

 Spinach Dip♥

...and a few other goodies♥

It was a very Special evening,,,
Of course even the Kitty's were apart of the Celebration...although Midi was in hiding.


So there you have it..Christmas at the Miller's 2013.....


If you would like to have me share a recipe from my Holiday Spread...Let me know, I would be happy to post a "kitchen Spell" for you!

I would love to hear how your Holiday was...as said, I hope it was magical♥

Much Love,
♥♥♥

Lovely Handmade Gifts

Hello Friends,

I mentioned before that I was making Beauty Baskets for Christmas Gifts this year. To put into the baskets, I have created adorable little goats milk soaps with Vanilla, Oats and sandalwood.  I then then topped each with a tiny rose bud. I also created soaps with the same ingredients but instead of topping each with a rose bud, I sprinkled the tops with a beautiful mint green Faery Dust.  In addition, I concocted Sinusitis Bath Salts and placed some in delicate chiffon pouches. I mailed a tiny package to a friend of mine and she took this beautiful photo of the gifts she received.

 I also created amazingly colorful and scented Bath Salts that I placed in jars, added a lovely tag and attached a tiny bauble.  The scents of the jars I created were: Cinnamon/Clove, English Lavender, Mint, Lemon and Orange.  Below is a photo of a few of the jars I will be gifting.

Needless to say, creating these lovelies made my home smell AMAZING!!!! I really enjoy creating these types of gifts. 
Have you been making gifts this Holiday Season?  If so, I would love to hear what you have been working on.

Bright Blessings,
♥♥♥

~Mysterious Origin~


We have finally finished the song that we have been working on in the Music Studio!  It was a project that is very near and dear to my heart.  The words for the lyrics came to me in a dream on night and I awoke to write them down.  After a long process of hard work, determination and Love....This is the finished project.  I have put together a preliminary video of it so that I can begin sharing it.

 My plan is to put together more of a story line video that relates to the lyrics.  That, however, will have to be a future project.  I am currently working on other tunes to be able to put together a Conceptual Album with the Title of it being  ~Mysterious Origin~.
Please let us know what you think of the song by leaving me a comment on Facebook and/or Twitter with the hashtag #denamillersings.
Of course you can always leave a comment here too.

Thanks so much for taking a listen♥

Much Love,

Kitchen Spells ~ Sausage and Potato Skillet~

Hello Friends, it has been a while since I have shared a Kitchen Spells Post with you.  Today, I am going to share a recipe with you that my Hubby really enjoys! 

~Sausage and Potato Skillet~
A Kitchen Spell by Dena K, Miller


Ingredients:
Hot or sweet sausages  1 pkg.
I like to use both so I use 2 pkg and divide it.
Vegetables of your choice, I used onions and broccoli, 1/2 cup of each
(you can also use any left over vegetables that you have)
Potato's of your choice sliced, I chose red
1/2 cup of water
4 tbs of olive oil.
salt
pepper

How to:
Place olive oil into a skillet and heat on high.
Once oil is hot, begin cooking the onion
Next place broccoli into the pan and cook all until tender.
Layer potato slices in skillet, add 1/2 cup water, continue cooking until potato's are also tender.
Add sausage and cook well, until done.
Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
Allow all of the skillet ingredients to simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes on low.

Serve with a salad and your favorite beverage.

This is a super easy recipe that can be made quickly for a great meal.  Give it a try and if so, I hope you enjoy.

Much Love,
♥♥♥

Contemplations

Hello Friends!
With the Winter Solstice soon approaching us, we must take time for Refection. We must quietly note the things that have happened to us in the past year and begin thinking of how we can create a new path in which to go that will make changes for the better in our lives.  Take this time of quietness and do just that....make your world a better place.  Change is good and soon, Spring will come to blossom all of your contemplations. I wish you Love and Peace♥

Bright Blessings,

A Holiday Jewelry Show and My Rad Coat

Yesterday was the Girls Gone Shopping Holiday Show.

  It was a good show..Jimi came with me and I love it when he does.  He helps me so much and it is nice to have him with me to talk to.  I did not get to use my Lace Curtain back drop because the space was so limited between the vendor tables. Oh well...  the day was very nice anyway.

 Jimi and I ordered lunch while we were there.  He ordered a sandwich and I ordered a salad. That is the usual I shall say.  Also, I have been wearing my Totally Rad Coat as of late.  This is me at the show...brrr, it was a bit chilly inside!



 Yeah, I love this coat!!!!!

Blessings,♥♥♥

So Much To Do!!

Hi There My Friends!!

Oh my, it is such a busy time of year! I have been very busy finishing up projects for my Jewelry Show which takes place this weekend, making Christmas Gifts, Filming and Editing Video's etc... One of the projects for gifts I have been working on is Journals for my Nieces.  I am loving how they have turned out and think the girls will too. I also have made the most luxurious Bath Salts to add to the Beauty Baskets that I plan on creating.  I will post photo's of the Bath Salts and journals in another post.  I did want to share this video with you to personally invite you to my upcoming Jewelry Show.  It will be the last one for the year. If you are local to the area, I would love to see you♥

I also would love for you to peek at a couple of other video's I filmed where I share how to organize your Day Planner for 2014.  In the video, you will see how I altered the book to personalize it.  This was a really fun project and makes keeping and Journaling in your Day Planner so much more inviting!
Part One

Part Two


Oh and I joined the Band Wagon and got myself and Instagram account!!! Yay!  I love Instagram so much!  It is truly addicting.  Do you have an Instagram account?  Join me there http://www.instagram.com/miladyleela

We will be making more candles into the new year.  I am super excited about that.  If you need or want to order any Beeswax Candles, check out our Candle Boutique at http://www.miladyleela.storenvy.com  Our Candles are 100 % organic and have the most pleasant and peaceful scent of honey.  We would also love it if you could help share our Candle Boutique with your friends.  Let them know where to find us if you would not mind.

Christmas Offerings

I mentioned that my Grand Baby and I got together last week to make very special gifts for both her Mommy and Daddy as well as our feathered friends.  We had such a wonderful time together too!!! The gifts are holiday bird feeders that she and her family can place outside of their home to help keep the birds fed during the winter.  This was such a fun project to do...very simple and with things I had around my house.




 After we were done, we wrapped them up in a pretty package and finished our Hot Cocoa with marshmallows...in our Santa Mugs, of course♥


So looking forward to The Winter Solstice and Christmas...how about you?

Much Love and Bright Blessings,
♥♥♥
