Hello! I's been a while :-( I really have been terribly busy with work, personal life and BIRTHDAY PARTIES!! Though I would love to be on the blog EVERY DAY, I just cannot do it right now. I am hoping September will be much more calm.

Recently, I have added a couple of new posts to my shop: 2 dozen Chew Chocolate Chip Cookies and 1 dozen My Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies. I am also hoping to post more of my U-Bake line. So far I only have my chocolate chip cookies posted but I'm aiming to post my Snicker doodle and Fudge Brownie mixes before the weekend.

I hope all is well :-)
Tons of hugs and love,

Two words...

My love. With mine and Paul's 19th wedding anniversary approaching, I find myself thinking about the past more and more, all they way to the day we met. I think about the great times and the quarrels we have had...even some ugly, stupid arguments. But if we didn't have the combination of good times and bad, would we be this happy today? Would we still be in love with one another? Probably not. But I am happy for the challenges we have faced and will accept those we have not faced yet...because we will conquer them together.

I wish for you many more years with the one you love.

Two New Items :-)


Well, I haven't yet made the new batch of Lemon Sandwich cookies but I did manage to knock out some White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies and Peanut Buster Blondies. YUM!!! Stay tuned until next week when my only goal I plan on setting (heeheehee) will be my Lemon Sandwich Cookies. Woo Hoo!

Have a sweet day :-)

Lady J Design Creations

Hello my dear friends and bubbly sheeshter!! I HAVE to share with you a brand new shop on Etsy:

In this shop you will find beautiful bead work and gourds. YES....GOURDS!!! I just happened to get glimpse of a flower made of beads at a local pharmacy and the cashier told me that it was not for sale but she knew who made it. She then told me that the one I was looking at was beat up. Beat up??? If THAT was beat up, I HAD to see one that wasn't because this "beat up" flower looked great.

I got to meet Jackie, the Ms. Lady J, and learned so much more about her creations. Jackie has won a medal for her work and, not to mention, was featured in two National magazines AND nominated into the 2009 Biltmore Who's who of 2009 book for personal achievements! WOW!!

Please swing by her shop and check out the beautiful work she has posted so far. You will be amazed!!!

As for my lemon sandwich cookies....uuuhhh....I'm editing my already edited recipe and trying again next week ;-)

Something New!

Hello my wonderful friends! I know, I know...where the hell have I been? LOL!! Well, we had Corbin's graduation and his party to attend to plus I wanted to be able to spend time with my nephew while he was here. So things went well and I was able to get some R&R and then it happened.......a drastic reduction in staff....the OT is back!

I've been working a lot lately and hoping we can get fully staffed again QUICKLY! I do love my job but it has been a burden on my shop :-( I'm exhausted when I do have a day off so I have not been creating anything new...until now! I am experimenting with a new recipe today and hoping it goes well so I can add it to my shop...lemon sandwich cookies. Yum! Cool, refreshing lemon perfect for summer time. I've also been thinking about adding my white chocolate macadamia cookies to the shop as well. It has been slow lately and figure a change in line-up might be in order.
So that's it about me and what's going on in my life. I will do my best to keep on top of my blog :-)
Love to all!
