T Stands for a Cup of Cheer

Happy Tuesday my friends. It's hard to believe we are already past the middle of the month and we're getting closer to the end of year. Is this month flying right by or what?
Since it is Tuesday again today I have a nice cup of tea to share with you.
Every now and again I want something creamy and rich to drink so I usually keep a can of Trader Joe's Chai Latte mix in my cabinet.
One can costs me around $3.49 or $3.99 at the store (I haven't bought one for  awhile so I don't remember the new price, and I know it just went up in price so it isn't $2.99 anymore), and when I looked online for this photo I found place selling cans for up to $8.00. Eeks. That's someone really trying to make a huge profit.
A can makes lots of cups of chai, so I can be prepared for those chilly evenings when I need something a little spicy and a little sweet.
You can see I was sipping this as I was getting ready to write this post.
And I am using this cute holiday mug.
Even the puppies like their holiday fun.
Here's the other side of the mug before I filled it.
Join us over at  Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog for some T Day fun!

And I'll also share a couple of more pages from my December journal with you.

The only things these 2 pages  share is the white background. I've been filling in the tags as I go and it has worked out well-still.

I'm not sure I'll be able to get on next T Day with it being Christmas, so I am wishing all of you stop by only on Tuesdays and who celebrate this holiday, a very Merry Christmas.
And to everyone, have a great T day.

Good evening, I enjoyed seeing your latest holiday pages-and I love your mug. I haven't had chai in a long time-its hard to find a decaf one-but I always enjoyed the spices.
yes this month is going by way too fast-Happy T Hugs Kathy

love your bright and festive header Erika! A nice chai spice really is good on a cold day isn't it...
adorable mug. And I like your December journal pages. They look so light and airy with the white! Wishing you happy T day and a Merry Christmas too!

YUM! I love that chai mix. I haven't bought any recently either. Nice journal pages.

Kate Yetter said...

A beautiful December journal! I especially love the last page with the paper doll. What a pretty cup to enjoy your chai latte in. I love Trader Joe's. They have some of the best products. I will have to try this mix sometime.
Happy Tea Day,

This tea sounds wonderful, but it appears someone is trying to make a killing off what appears to be a very popular drink. I was at a Trader Joe's in CA, but they haven't made it this far inland.

I love that mug, and the dogs are truly adorable. It feels like a Christmas mug, too!

Your December journal is wonderful. I love the various ways you found to journal. Thanks for sharing your Chai tea and your journal pages with us for T this Tuesday, Erika.

What a lovely holiday mug you have, and of course with dogs having fun! Sometimes we need a nice, warming drink in the evening! Lovely journal pages, great that you keep it up so well. Just watching the sunrise here, so pretty! Happy T Day, have a great week, hugs, Valerie

I love Chai. Such a treat on a cold, chilly day or night. Your December journal is just so happy. I love those old-fashioned ornaments. They bring back childhood memories. I can do without the snowflakes, though. We got a dusting last night. This month is going by so fast. Hopefully, the rest of the Winter months will fly by, too. Happy T Day and Merry Christmas!

Jeanie said...

what an adorable mug! You remind me to dig my holiday ones from the bsement! And I love your pages! Merry!

I love your festive drinking mug and the chai looks really warming and delicious.
The journal pages look great, it is hard to think how close it is getting to Christmas.
Happy T day wishes.

This cup is so lovely - gorgeous and I bet the tea tastes wonderful! I have got a selfmade syrup for chai tea latte but don't use it very often. But you inspire me, I will make a cup now! And your fabulous pages! Just a few days before the christmas brake?!
Isn't this amazing?!

Happy T-Day my friend

Jeanie said...

Cute, cute, cute as can be! Merriest, merriest to you!

Eileen Bergen said...

I love your cute holiday cup, Erika. Also love your simple journal pages. I should take a page from you book. Maybe I'd actually get my pages done! I haven't touched my planner journal since October :-( I definitely need a new (simpler) approach.

Happy T-day and Merry Christmas! Eileen xoxo

I do like your mug and the tea, and I spy some lovely knitting on your table. Your holiday pages look very festive and I love the jolly snowman with his colourful snowflakes.

Darla said...

I was just in TJ's recently and missed that tea mix. I was stocking up on their Truffles, LOL! I'll have to go back. I'm always impressed with those of you who keep a journal. I start and about 3 pages in I put it down for something else.

Have a Happy Holiday

Neet said...

Lovely journal pages again Erika - and I love the mug. Such a fun picture and one which runs all the way around. The inside looks rather tasty too - hope it warms you up.
Hugs, Neet x

Sharon Madson said...

Great journal pages. Lovely post. I wish you a Merry Christmas. I won't be on next week, because my desk is in my craft room, and I will be cleaning my craft room so we can put a bed in here for our granddaughter. We will have a lot of family here. See you in a couple of weeks.

Neet said...

Fab pages Erika - love the words interspersed with the baubles. So very effective!
Enjoy the T
Hugs, Neet xx
