Sandy Stinks

We are at approximately hour 24 of rain from Hurricane Sandy. I am not writing from my own home because we have above ground power lines and we typically lose power pretty quickly. And the winds are supposed to be 65mph+ for more then twelve hours overnight. Doesn't sound fun does it?

So I hope if you are in the storm's path, you stay safe. We are inside, got some food at the grocery and I also picked up a pumpkin so William (I mean we) could carve it on the kitchen floor during the storm since we need something to do :)

We have some BIG NEWS so keep up!

Halloween Hat Cookies

Earlier this month I hosted a costume swap for our local MOMS Club. I decided to provide some Halloween treats, but did not go overboard since all of the attending children were toddlers or babies. Let's be serious, the cookies were for the Moms :)

All I had to buy for the cookies was a pack of fudge stripe cookies and a pack of Hershey's Kisses. You also need honey and "writing" frosting, but I had both of those.

As you can see, the stripe side of the cookie will be face down on your plate/tray. Put a small dollop (I like that word) of honey on the bottom of the Hershey Kiss and then push onto the cookie, covering the hole. I let them sit overnight to "stick" better.

The next morning I used a small tube of yellow writing frosting to make a ring around the edge, where the cookie joined the kiss.

Then I added little buckles to the witch's hats.

The cookies were yummy and people thought they were so cute! :)

Miss Me?

I decided after a full month away from writing my blog, but not reading my favorites, I'd come back (or try to). Alot has happened in the past month and alot is about to happen -- for that you'll just have to wait and see.

It is Autumn here and my pumpkin candle is glowing daily breathing the sweet scent I love into my home. To escape pre-Fall, we took a family vacation to Belize!

More on that later…if I achieve my goal of getting around to it.

Life is busy and I decided not to spend my evening blogging. There, that's the truth. Also, I think people see enough photos of my sweet William and our antics on Facebook so I don't need to post them here. After all, some of my most vigilant readers are family and close friends who know all too many details about what we are doing/have done that they really don't need my blog to tell them.

The craft bug hasn't bit me personally in a bit. I use my craft skills to make products for my Memorable Designs customers everyday and LOVE it, but as far as personal stuff…I'm hoping to get some Thanksgiving items and then Christmas things made (For me. For once.)

So I suppose this is a hello and a warning that I will probably only be back intermittently and I won't be taking pictures of recipes and all that so much because I am preoccupied with life and just trying to soak up every second.
