Hot Chocolate Cross Stitch Ornaments

Janlynn Hot Cocoa Ornament Cross Stitch KitLast week’s chart of the week was also a Janlynn ornament set. I decided not to buy the owl ornaments when I saw these cute hot cocoa mug ornaments!

Hot chocolate is kind of a big deal around here. The kids love hot chocolate nights, they get excited about it and they take it pretty darn seriously.

They get festive and stir it up with candy canes, they look for flavor options like mint and white chocolate, they love flavored marshmallows, and sometimes we get adventurous and make homemade marshmallows just for hot chocolate. if we’re out shopping and I stop into Starbucks they want their hot chocolate in a red cup, and they savor every sip.

Thanks to Amazon Prime, my ornament kit should be here tomorrow! Yay :) Since chunks of my stash are still in a box from moving, I’ll be working on these over the holiday break.

You can get the set on Amazon at a great price (the owls and other sets are available on the same page too) Side note; if the cocoa mugs are showing out of stock when you get to the page, wait a few hours and go back. They were out of stock when I first found them and they were back in stock by the end of the day!

Happy Holiday Stitching!
