I'm here honest!

I was trying to get a real post together for this week, but it looks like it's not going happen. My kids have been sick since last weekend, though they are finally better today, and I'm working on finishing up the story I've been writing so I can enter it in a contest on Monday! If you're interested in hearing more about my story you can check out my new writing blog: The Write Way To Type! :) I'll go back to my regular posting after I'm done with this contest. :)

Oh, I also added a new tab to my blog called Etsy Teams. Check out the cool groups I'm currently in on Etsy! :) There's some new stuff in the Cook Links tab as well if you're interested.

Have a great week everyone! See you next Monday! :)

More Snow!

It snowed again this weekend! :) This time it was just enough to make everything look pretty, but not enough to screw up the roads too badly. I decided to go out while it was still snowing and take a bunch of pics. :) I haven't fixed them all yet, but I did post a few on Flickr this morning. Here's my favorite from the bunch I've already posted:


It's a little stream, set back in the woods at the park near my house! I didn't even know it was there, because during the non-snowy season, the woods are completely overgrown with pricker bushes and you can't walk back that far. But since everything was covered with snow, I was able to walk along some of the deer paths pretty deep into the trees. :) It was so beautiful and peaceful wandering along the paths through the woods! I'll post the rest of them on Flickr either today or tomorrow. :)

In keeping with the wintry theme, today's mini treasury is all about snow! Enjoy! :)

Sugar Rush!

This Halloween I got a craving for a candy I hadn't had in a long time: Pixy Stix! I went out to the grocery store to pick some up, but they didn't have any. Over the next couple of weeks I searched all of the stores in my area, but I couldn't find them anywhere. :( Then on Tuesday, I went to Michael's to spend the gift card I'd gotten for Christmas and there they were, right by the checkout!

I was so excited that I called my husband to tell him and then briefly considered spending my entire gift card on Pixy Stix! :D My husband talked me down. But I did buy four bags! :) Yes I am weird, I just usually keep it to myself. ;)

I have been snacking on a few here and there all week. So while trying to come up with a theme for today's post, I decided why not do something with sugar! I looked for Pixy Stix specific items, but there weren't enough to do a standard sized treasury. Instead what I came up with is a treasury full of brightly colored sugary pieces, some of which are made of actual sugar. :) I hope you enjoy this sweet mini treasury! :)

The Month of the Garnet

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great and festive December! Anyone make any New Year's resolutions? I did. I finally decided to steal my friend Bill's resolution and resolve not to make any more resolutions! He's stuck to it for about ten years now, so I think it's my best bet for actually following through with one. :)

The snow around here is about half way gone. It's been over 40 degrees for the last three days or so. If it keeps up I figure we'll be back to just grass again by the weekend. New Jersey weather is really weird...

Anyway, now it's January. And January's birthstone is garnet! I love garnet. :) Red is one of my favorite colors and while rubies are very nice, I love the deep red color of garnets. Because of it's deep red color people in ancient times thought garnet had the ability to stop bleeding and cure disorders of the blood. It was also given as gifts between friends to ensure they would meet again. :) So to all my friends and followers born in January, Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy this garnet mini treasury and that you have a happy and blessed birth month! :)
