For those of you that may not know this, I love cookies. I don't just like them sometimes or on holidays, I could literally eat a cookie every single day (especially my mama's homemade snickerdoodles!) but, I digress. Cookies are obviously not a super healthy food and by no means should be eaten on a daily basis. Therefore, I regulate my intake of this purely magical goodness to a sometimes snack. Every once in a while you come across one that makes you say "O-M-G I can't live without another one!" ie mom's snickerdoodles. I'm sure you have all had this experience, even those of who are not as obsessed with cookies as I. Maybe it was a piece of cake, or candy or some other form of delicious treat. You get the picture. Anyway, the point is there are amazing forms of awesome desserts out there and cookies are my fav!

Now, on to the point of this random dessert post. I love finding cookies that taste amazing, for obvious reasons naturally. But, I really love finding pretty cookies! This one is a bit more challenging. There are a lot of good bakeries that make nice looking cookies but to find a place that makes something you are truly proud to have at a birthday party, bridal shower, luncheon, wedding, basically any event imaginable is a tough find. Thanks to Facebook I think I just might have found the future home for all my cookie needs! The other day a friend of mine posted about her friend on Facebook (are you still with me?) so I followed the link to her site and fell in love with all the beautiful cookies she has created! This girl has some talent! You can visit her blog here: Whip It Good Cookies and seriously just take a look at those fabulous cookies she has on there. Oh, and did I mention she is currently in a contest sponsored by Martha Stewart?! That's right The Martha Stewart!

Candy and I are already discussing which football themed cookies we can have for which game next month, haha! Of course my favorite on her site would definitely be the love birds, they are too darling. If you have a chance to check out Erin's blog, you should also try to take a minute and use the link to Martha's page to vote for Erin in the contest. Her stuff is definitely fabulous and deserving of a win! :)

Hope you're all having a great week... It's Hump Day!

Recent Happenings

I have been a busy busy bee lately! This will probably be the case until after Fair on the Square, but that's fine with me, I'm excited :)

Here are a few snapshots of what's been going on the past few days. Most of the time I get bogged down with stuff and forget to even take pictures, for those that follow on Instagram, sorry!

It has been raining A LOT. Which is awesome, makes crafting weekends that much more enjoyable.

I've been working on some tags for an upcoming project, here they are at stage one.

And here they are at stage two. I have one more thing to add, so they're not quite finished yet.

I've also been working on some Halloween projects for Fair on the Square. I'm really excited to show off the new Fall/Holiday items in THREE WEEKS!

My Monday morning didn't start off too great, I had a little fender bender on the way to work. Everyone is fine, however Dottie has some major scrathes and possible other damage, so I'm going to get her appraised this afternoon. Hopefully it isn't too bad, but that's what insurance is for I guess! Here's hoping the rest of the week goes much more smoothly than it started out!

Labor Day has come and gone, and we all know what that means... FALL! I absolutely love Fall. The air starts to get a bit cool in the morning/evening. The leaves start to the change colors and twirl to the ground. And the decor! Oh Em GEE! I am so in love with Fall decorations it's a little bit crazy. (If you didn't already notice from the previous post about a Candy Corn Wreath.. in August.) We're on the verge of the holiday season and it's fabulous. I've been working feverishly to get ready for Fair on the Square AND get some stuff ready for Dev's shower that's in two weeks, but I'm also trying to enjoy this first little burst of cool weather we received and decorate for Fall.

Friday night was the first home football game for the high school, so Candy and I went to cheer on the Hornets and her daughter who's a cheerleader. It was a lot of fun, ahhhhh, Friday Night Lights! Saturday was the official start to the college football season, so I had to move all my crafting supplies to a room with a tv so I could watch/listen to the games while working. Sunday was the first full day of NFL action and it was fabulous, although, not without drama since they're using replacement refs! (If you can't tell, I LOVE me some football!!) The big game Sunday night (Broncos/Steelers) was a bit disappointing seeing as how my cable wasn't working correctly and I had no sound for the entire first half. Needless to say I'm calling to review other options today, I will not let Suddenlink ruin my entire football season... they also ruined opening night when I lost ESPN for an entire quarter!

Anyway, I'm going on and on here. What are your favorite Fall activities? I know a lot of people that have been basking in the glory of pumpkin spice beverages from Starbucks, I do not drink coffee, or I would be one of them! I will be enjoying some lovely pumpkin muffins from Einstein Bagels though :)

I can't believe Fair on the Square is just around the corner!! I have so much left to do before the big day. I'm going to be working like a mad woman until then. I still have several things to finish up before Dev's shower and then I'll be gone an entire weekend for that, so that basically leaves me with two full weekends to get everything done. I do work on things during the week, but the bulk of the work takes a good bit of a "all at one time" kind of stuff so it's much easier to do on the weekends. Hopefully I can get it all done!! Be sure to save the date and come check out our booth at Fair on the Square October 6th!! We'll be right around the Facemaker so just look for us :)

Hope everyone's week is starting out fabulously!
