.sweet tooth swap.

It's Friday night and that means that it's "craft night" with the girls!  So in preparation for a fun evening, I have done everything from clean house to baking cookies!  I have to admit, since leaving the corporate retail management world behind, I have found myself looking so forward to enjoying the Holidays.  Seriously.  I know that might sound a little silly, but believe me, when you've worked for craft stores for as long as I have (almost 9 years!) and have seen the mass amounts of Christmas merchandise being put out on the shelves, starting in the SUMMER, by the time the Holidays arrive, you want to get in that "jolly" mood but can't.  So this has been nice.  I can truly see myself creating the "handmade" Christmas I so desperately want to do this year!

During my baking time today, I thought of all the different goodies I want to make, like bourbon balls, sugar cookies, peppermint bark, etc, and that's when I came up with the idea of starting a "Sweet Tooth Swap."  Basically a recipe swap focusing on all things sweet!  I'm not exactly sure how I want to get it going, but I know it'll be fun once I do.  Hey, you're all invited!  Just give me a couple of days to figure out how I want to do this and I'll put up an update.  Sound like fun?  


  1. Hi Kat, how are you doing?
    I think one of these days the Christmas merchandise will be on the shelves all year long! Here in town a Christmas shop just closed its doors. The economy is too bad and at Michaels I already see some big sales and now they give us cupons with discounts! Crazy. I am decorating my home with very little at this time and as always. I will make some stuff with things that I already have.
    I hope you had fun last night.

  2. Thanks for stopping in at my blog! Yours is way cute! Plus, I would love to be in on the Sweet Tooth swap, I love baking desserts (especially with chocolate!)

  3. Melissa, I'm digging the idea of chocolate goodness!


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
