cute cat pic of the week

Looking very dapper for the new year.

I just want to wish everyone a happy new year! Hopefully there will be more work and fun things to show you soon. As for right now, i think i'll make some hot chocolate and watch a movie. Snow day!

Pictures from the bazaar are up! The professional pictures i mean. You can take a look at them on Flickr here. However, there are no pictures of my booth. I saw the photographer walking around taking pictures, and he seemed to avoid my table. Ah well. I did find some pictures that i am in. I drew arrows so it would be easier to find me.

Well, i have to say that they taste better than they look. Thank goodness! I always imagine these beautiful christmas cookies with pretty and intricate designs, but somehow they always end up looking like this. Until i have real pastry bags and those metal tip thingys, instead of hannaford brand ziploc bags (which causes the icing to either pop out the sides or ooze out the top, dripping all over the place), the cookies will continue to look like this. By the end i was just dripping icing all over the place!
I think my people look so unhappy because their outfits were not very fashionable, and there was icing everywhere.
They taste good though! I swear. If you'd like a recipe for sugar cookies that aren't super sweet and more on the buttery side, try out this recipe for Soft Christmas Cookies!

Well, the last craft fair of the season was not such a success. Thank goodness i did the bazaar! Otherwise i would have been a very sad girl indeed. Yours truly made a whole $4 the entire day. Ah well. From now on i am only doing craft fairs that have been around for more than one year.

Now that i'm done with fairs, i've been focusing on getting christmas presents done. I have been very crafty and using my glue gun! Hopefully the ones i have to mail won't disintegrate during shipping. We'll see.

i almost forgot i had a blog...

Well! It certainly has been a while since my last update, and it certainly has been a busy past few weeks. Getting ready for the Bazaar was tough - but i did it! It was a success (despite getting lost on the streets of boston several times), and i'm glad i did it. I just have one more fair tomorrow in Gorham and then i'll be done. Whew!

Cute cat pic of the last two weeks.
