Archive for September, 2013

I love decorating for all occasions / holidays.  I used to hang a seasonal flag on our house but our new house does not have a place to put a flag pole.  So instead I have hung wreathes or lights or both.  I figured “hey, I can make these decorations myself!” So my new hobby started taking form.  I got a saw, my husband helped me pick out the correct type of wood and I drew the designs myself. I have tons of craft paint so I knew I was well on my way.  I have to say learning how to maneuver the saw was the most time-consuming but it has gotten easier each project.  I hope to start selling my creations. It will be fun. I can personalize any of the Door Decor I make.

Here is a look at some of my creations.







I am working on a few new shapes for the holiday season. Check back for more soon!

If you are interested in anything let me know!

Well September is finally here which means cooler weather, crisp breezes, sweaters, falling leaves and wine on the porch with friends.

I am so excited and in the thrill of the new month I made some delicious cookies. Get this, only 2 ingredients! You heard correct, 2.


Pumpkin Spice Cake Cookies

1 box of spice cake mix

1 can of pumpkin purée


Pre Heat oven to 350

So here comes the hard part

Put the cake mix in a bowl

Add the pumpkin to the cake mix

Stir until completely mixed


On a parchment lined cookie sheet spoon scoop the

cookies about 2 inches apart

(I used 2 different size scoops to see how they turned out)


cook for 13 – 15 minutes

These cookies are really cake like, so they  did not spread like a normal cookie

They rose like a cake


Let them cool or eat them warm.

These cookies will be amazing with a hot cup of coffee or hot tea.


I am sure that these cookies could be made with any flavor f box cake. I was thinking a white cake would be good. Maybe add some cinnamon and spice. This way you can control the spices!

Well I hope that  you enjoy this little recipe. I know my husband did.

Until Then,
