I was asked to make some holiday cookies for an event recently. It was a lot of fun and definitely got me into the holiday spirit! I am so ready to start my holiday baking... but it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. (insert sad face) I'm not letting it stop me, though. I'm testing out some new recipes and gadgets.

In addition to doing some baking, I've been busy with classes and kids but got a little "me" time to do some crafting for fun. I recently purchased this Martha Stewart Poinsettia punch and discovered it'll punch stiff felt! Wohoo!!! Thankfully I already had the holly leaf punch. That one's a little tougher to punch but it works! I knew that felt I picked up long ago would come in handy someday.

My class schedule page has been updated with a sample pic of the next class on Sunday, Nov 28th. Just so you know, this is my LAST CLASS for 2010!! I always take the month of December off. We'll be making 5 fun and creative gift card holders, including one that uses a Starbucks cup, which I'm sure you'll all use to hold a Starbucks gift card. And no, I didn't steal the cups. I asked for them. Except I forgot to ask for lids so I'm working on that. Duh me.

Okay, that's it for today. See ya later.
