Projects in the making...

We are now coming to the end of the first week of 2012...wow, doesn't time fly?!

I am not one to make resolutions...I refuse to set myself up for failure.  Having said that, I do plan have every intention of doing the following this year...

I hope to post here a little more often.  I haven't had any reason to make cookies since Christmas so I haven't had anything new to share.  This is a long time for me to go without making cookies, so since I don't have an order till Jan 21st, I may have to whip up a batch just for shits and giggles FUN!

I am giving my blog a "facelift" of sorts.  Well, I am not doing it, exactly, but I am working with someone that is way better at this sort of thing than me.  We have completed "phase 1" which was redesigning the logo as well as creating new business cards.  I can't wait to share...so stay tuned!

Since I have put on what I refer to as my "winter coat" (sadly, I seem to do this every year around the holidays!), I am making every effort to shed those unwanted pounds.  My hubby, son-in-law and I are participating in our own version of "The Biggest Loser"...throwing money into the pot and winner take all!  I am pretty much just donating my money because even though it is "percentage of weight loss", they will probably lose more.  They do Atkins and I do Weight Watchers...still the best diet out there, IMO.  I will keep you updated on my progress...diet ends 2/29!

I have lots of furniture "re-do" projects waiting for my attention and of course, I am always on the prowl for more.  I am currently trying to work some magic on this little jewel:


I have had this for quite a while and think I posted a picture here before, but not sure.  As you can see, I have already sanded the top down to bare wood.  Since taking this pic, I have disassembled it and I now have the second tier done as well.  I am finally trying my hand at Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...I have heard a lot about it, but have never tried it till now.  I can't wait to see what all the hype is about...I will keep you posted on this as well.

I, of course, look forward to the arrival of our 3rd grandchild, who should make her debut mid-February.  Can't wait for that!

I appreciate each and every one of you that takes the time to stop by my blog and hope you all will continue to do so in 2012!  If you get a chance, leave a little comment telling me you were "here"...I would love to hear from you!




There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

Ohhhh . . . I want to see your blog makeover - you know I love that crap!! Good luck with the diet. You've been successful before, so I know you'll do it again, even if you don't beat Tom or Ron. I'm down 14 lbs. and have joined the gym . . . although I haven't actually worked out yet. But joining counts, right?! LOL Sat in my chairs ALL weekend and LOVE them - you're NOT getting them back!! AND I confirmed that we want two dozen heart cookies that I'll need for Sunday, February 12th - so, Friday or Saturday before? Can you do lunch this week? I need to do a bit of shopping for CHA, too . . . let me know if you can join me!!
