    That’s the Way the (Fortune) Cookie Crumbles

    by

    Tonight, my fortune cookie at dinner read, “It’s time to break out of your routine and try something new.”  Maybe my fortune cookie was trying to say, “Hey, why don’t you snap out of this routine of having a blog but not posting to it, you ninny!”

    Don’t you hate those people who start blogs and then go on to just ignore them and neglect posting anything for weeks!  I guess I really got into the whole summer mode…

    Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!

    I think we should rename cupcakes.  They should really be called cutecakes.  I went a little cupcake crazy these past two days.  Baking the real deal and jazzing up some plain ol’ greeting cards.   Let’s start with the cards.  The cupcake cutout stamp is by Martha Stewart (I hate to…

    Love Letters

    I love letters, postcards, notes, greeting cards, smoke signals, Morse code beeps, carrier pigeon messages, etc.  Are you getting the point?  I love letter-writing and letter-receiving.  It’s an art form.

    Stationary – you can never have enough stationary.  You might think you have plenty, but then you’ll see a pack …

    Things look a little different around here!  I have been trying my best to refresh the look of this ol’ blog but I am having a few technical difficulties. 

    Why is the picture at the top just not willing to be centered?
