Wow I can’t believe it has been almost a month since I posted last. I always have good intentions of posting though.

I did make some amazing cookies last week after tweaking a recipe. They started out as basic oatmeal raisin which Todd and Donovan love. However, Jade and I don’t care for raisins in our cookies so I took half of the basic dough and added craisins and white chocolate to ours. Yummy! I made them “monster” sized and I couldn’t believe how moist they stayed for the three days that they lasted. They have quickly become one of our new favorites!

I stitched up this cute little pin cushion! I have to admit the pattern needed some adjustments so my first one definitely did not look this good. I am fairly new to all this sewing stuff so thankfully I can usually figure it out. Needless to say the first one looked more like a deflated cupcake. My daughter made the delightful little gift box that is in the picture. It is hard to see but the top of it is covered in what appears to be sugar crystal.

I have been using my homemade laundry soap exclusively now for almost a month! I must say that it really is working great. Our clothes look and feel much cleaner and crisper than they did with my old laundry detergent. The crispness could also be due to the fact that I have been hanging almost everything out on the clothes line. Either way I love it so I will be sticking with it from here on out!
