Homemade Cookies... Yummy

Ok I learned a valuable lesson tonight.
It DOES matter what order you put the ingredients in the mixer when your making
Chocolate Chip Cookies.

(Isn't my mixer beautiful! I so love her.)


So... on to the lesson learned.

Cooking is a science.... yes, thank you Anne for teaching me this. I was being lazy and tossed all the ingredients into the mixer and the dough was a little dry... I figured something must have been old but alas... I was wrong.

It IS important to alternate the ingredients when they say to do that...

Who knew?

Well now YOU know!


These are the cookies... not bad but nowhere near the quality my cookies typically are.

Scrap Night w/Meg!



I got home from "The Big Apple" yesterday and after a week of no crafting decided that I needed a fix.... a CRAFT FIX that is.
So... I called Meg and we scrapped for a few hours.
I have been hanging on to this layout idea from a magazine and finally used it. I don't typically copy layouts from magazines... I do get inspiration or learn new techniques from what they do but never flat out copy the layout. Well this time I would say I pretty much copied their idea. I used much different paper but it was the same concept.


This is a copy of the photo Dad carried in his wallet for years....

I love how it turned out!
