The Notebook

I'm going to start sharing my notebook.
It's basically my way of meditating.

Happy Happy!

My mom wanted to buy some of this tape for me for Christmas. She was overwhelmed with the choices so she gave me money to buy some for myself instead.
She's right - it was overwhelming. I think I made a good choice.

I'm going to tape the heck out of a craft :)

Plush, je t'aime

I was looking through the French magazine "Marie Claire Idees"  and spotted a super-cute plush "thing." Instantly I was inspired to create my own version. I drew up a quick pattern on paper and within a couple hours I had this sweet creature.

I totally scored today. My friend Amy wanted to meet me at Trader Joe's this morning to give me something. How happy was I when it was a box of pretty pastel butterfly sugar cookies? 

Thank you, Amy. I've already eaten 4 of them. Delish!

Fun on FB

I love making my aunt April's mint chocolate cookies. The recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies which is way too many to be sitting in my kitchen! So I decided to have a contest on Facebook. 
The first two people to post a comment would win some cookies as well as the recipe. Gina in Minneapolis and Christine out in sunny Cali were the recipients of this yummy giveaway. 
It was so popular that I'll have to try it again soon. Maybe a sock monkey next time?

A Monkey for Mary

Dan's mom is known in the family as "Busia" (pronounced "boo-sha") which is Grandma in Polish (her heritage). For Christmas this year Dan decided that Busia needed a monkey.
She got Mabel.

And she liked it:
