I'm baaaaack...

...and how about that, it was less than a week, even!

Short and sweet cuz' I got cookies to do!  These are a few I have done recently!



Cute little ladybugs that were done a little differently, thanks to SSB's tutorial!


And all packaged up in these cute BRP basket boxes...love them!  Such a cute presentation, I think, anyway!


Four dozen of these spa cookies...kind of fun, huh?


One dozen chubby #2 pencils!


And because I had some cookie order down time...I made these little Emoji's!  I'm addicted to these little guys...the Emoji's not the cookies...although they are pretty stinkin' cute as a cookie, don't ya think?!  I did an Instagram giveaway for these!

That's it for cookies...but now I am going to make your life a little sweeter by introducing you to this little dish:

A couple of weeks ago I made this dessert from a recipe I found on Pinterest.  

When I read the words "best blueberry cobbler ever and only four ingredients", I was MORE than intrigued!  If I am being honest, I can't even really tell you how good it was myself...I'm dieting and I did not even taste it!  I made this for Kelli's girl's night...but from what I'm told, it was da bomb!  And so stinkin' easy!  Here is the direct link Brown Butter Blueberry Cobbler.  

To be honest, I had never heard of actually browning butter for a recipe, but after doing it, I do feel that it was important element to the recipe.  You could really smell the yummy buttery goodness...and that was before it was even baked!  Seriously...the easiest recipe on the planet...you're welcome!

Psssst...don't forget the ice cream!

Till next time!

I was a little surprised...

...at how far I had to go back to find my last cookies that I posted.  Bad blogger!

Anyhoo...here are just a few that I have done since I actually last shared cookies!


Some simple sailboats!


The "ABC" in this set was inspired by Pam of Cookie Crazie...cute idea, right?!  I did quite a few teacher gift boxes with this design!


For those of you that don't know...this is "Sparky", the ASU mascot.  When I purchased this cutter, I bought it for it's original purpose...a shark's head ( picture this cookie upside down and then you will see it!).  When Kelli saw the cutter, she thought it was for Sparky, so what's a cookier to do...make it happen!  Kudos the her for coming up with the idea...it will be a huge hit in these parts!


Speaking of Kelli...one of the girls in her "Bacholor Night" group, is having a baby.  They decided finale night should have a little baby shower theme.  Done!


And last but not least...who can forget Strawberry Shortcake?!  She was around when my kids were little...it's nice to see some things never go out of style!

That's it for today...but I've got lots more to share so come back!

Uggghhhh...

...has it really been that long since I posted?  Such a bad blogger!

Anyhoo...as promised, I am finally back with some "after" pics of my floor.  I was sort of dragging my feet because I was hoping to have at least one area rug by now...but that has not happened as of yet.  Think I may have found one though...just saw it yesterday at of all places, Target!  Loves me some Target!

So let's take a peek, okay?!


I actually have two accent walls to paint...and although I have a color in mind, I have to wait till I get the area rug!  I decided I needed some color in my life and my motto is...GO BIG OR GO HOME!  You can barely see the new drapes I made on the window (grommet drapes too, kind of proud of myself!).  More about those in a minute!


Ignore the sleeping pooch in the background...another spot where I desperately need an area rug!  I never knew how easily furniture slides around without something underneath!


Just another view of the floor!


Whatcha' think?  Should I get an area rug for under the dining room table?


Jury's still out on this one!  I guess if I find the perfect rug, I may put one under my kitchen table!

Now about those drapes and cushions!  Remember when I said, I needed some color?  Well, you don't get much more color than this:


The drapes are already made for the living room and dining room.  I will make valances out of the same material for across the back of my house, which is family room and kitchen.  What can I say...it just makes me happy!  I just purchased the fabric on the right to recover my dining room chairs...let's not talk about the fact that I just did this not that long ago!  What?!  A girl can't change her mind?!

Okay...that's about it for me, for now! 

For those that don't give two figs about my house reno and come by strictly to see cookies...I got lots of those to share too!  I PROMISE not to make you wait another couple weeks to see them!  Pinky swear!

Till then...
