Crafting and Friends...

The cookies turned out great! I've never seen Rowdy more excited about any treat we've ever bought him like he is about these. So I'll say that they are a hit and a huge success! YAY!!!

I've been helping my friend Ashley make Halloween costumes. She was talking to a customer when she was at work the other day and mentioned that the item the customer was buying would make a great base for a Halloween costume and the next thing you know the girl is paying for us to make everything for it! It's been a lot of fun. She is going to be a lady bug and so is her little 1 yr. old daughter. So we've been making wings and antennae and we glittered some shoes. Then she brought us her friend who also wanted us to help make her costume so now we are making her into a "fairy witch." She wanted wings and a hat... that's what we came up with. So far they are both just too cute! I also had someone want to buy one of my guest trees from my Etsy shop so it's just been a crafting storm here at the house! Baking, painting, hot gluing, glittering... Its been a blast.

So I realize my blog is super lame.

I guess since I don't really have any friends around town, I really just need a place to type out all of the things that I would normally talk to a friend about... So, If you are reading this, then Thanks Friend! I will gladly check out any blog, vlog, comments, emails, IM chats, any kind of media where I can return the favor and read about your life and the everyday activites that get you through the week.

3rd Birthdays and Doggy Treats!

Today (well, yesterday now...) was my puppy's 3rd birthday! Matthew had to work, but he has tomorrow (well, today now...) off from work, so we are going to celebrate the pupster's birthday (hopefully) with a trip to the park and maybe Petco. It's gonna be puppy pamper day. I'm even baking homemade puppy cookies!! I'm not going to lie, those suckers smell SOOO good right now baking in the oven. Technically I could eat them seeing as they are just flour, water, peanut butter, and oatmeal. I threw in some cinnamon and a little bit of apple chunks just to spice it up a bunch. The weather has been so perfect lately (very fall like) and it IS October, so I decided to add some fall flavors into his cookies. Everyone else is doing the apple/cinnamon thing... Wendy's, McDonalds, Cracker Barrel... why not me?! I might try one, just to see if they taste too much like flour, because I had to keep adding teaspoons of flour to get the right consistancy. I still don't think I got it right because it was supposed to be a dough that you roll out and cut out shapes with cookie cutters, but instead mine was a little sticky and I did drop cookies. I was just worried that they would taste like flour instead of apple cinnamon peanut butter yumminess. They smell like apple cinnamon peanut butter yumminess, so I guess we'll see...
