I *love* this time of year - don't you? It's such a busy time but there is no shortage of fun things to do! Today starts what we refer to as Nutcracker Madness in our household. This week are the on-stage rehearsals and performances begin THIS weekend!
I volunteer to help at all the shows that Hailey is in because I have to drive her there and pick her up. I also do it because it's lots of fun and I get to watch the show on the monitors. My "job" is cheeks - I get to paint red circles on the girls' cheeks... I think we need a stamp for this! LOL!
Thank you to everyone that stopped by for our Grand Re-Opening last Saturday! It was fun to see so many familiar faces and a bunch of new ones too! There were LOTS of great deals and we cleared out a LOT of stuff so thank you!
We've had LOTS of requests to share some of the good deals with our friends that are too far to visit us in person. So, we've added a *sale* category on our website and we will be posting lots of great deals there. Many of these items will be discontinued and some are simply overstocked at this time. Be sure to check back often for updates.
We had fun making Candy Cane holders. As promised, you can find the template here. I think this box would be great for all sorts of "treats". You could fill a cellophane bag with fudge, tiny cookies, mints, etc., tie with pretty A Muse ribbon and pop inside the box. So fun! Cindy promised that she would bake some tiny cookies to show us how it is done so I will get a photo of it as soon as she does some baking. Go Cindy!
For those of you that haven't met Cindy, she is our Sales Manager and resident baker extraordinaire. If you were at the Cupcake Social... you *know* what I mean!
