What’s December Really Looking Like?

Hey Sweeties,

It’s December 1st, and it’s time to get the ball rolling. There are so many things going on this month. We have The Cookie Club, the Makers Creative Collab with P.M. Artist Studio, giveaways, and the upcoming Ephemera Swap for January. Let’s break this down in order.

The Cookie Club

The Cookie Club’s theme is The 12 Days of Christmas. For those participating, I’ll be videoing each cookie design. I may use stencils, my projector, and I may even freehand it; who knows. Either way, it goes; something is going on the cookie. I’m going to keep it sweet and simple. There may be a bit of artsy stuff going on there, but it’ll still be fun.

You have until December 20th to sign up and get your box. Be sure to check the pinned Cookie Club post at the top of the main blog page to sign up.

The Makers Creative Collab

If you haven’t been keeping up with it over the last three months, you have no idea what you’re missing. In the Makers group and on YouTube, creatives are showing their stuff. So, without giving too much away, I’ll be making another cookie! Yay! Just like the cornucopia, this is something I never made before. Mixing baking and crafting is fun and challenging when combining the two and creating something entirely edible.

Holiday Giveaway

Shannon from Hot Mess Crafting on Facebook is having a giveaway. I’ll be one of the small businesses giving away a prize to her one winner or one of her winners (don’t quote me in the number of winners. lol).

The Ephemera Swap

I’m hosting a swap in January where those participating will make ephemera and swap with a partner. There is no minimum amount of pieces to be made. Partners can discuss that. Be sure to check out the PICS page for more information. If you have any questions, feel free to fill out the contact form on the Support page.

Questions or Concerns?

If you have any questions about the events above, visit the Support page and fill out the contact form. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Notes-vember Day 27

Hey Sweeties,

It’s day 27! It’s chilly and a little rainy today. That didn’t change or make any unwanted moods. I felt good and I always feel good when working on a cake or cookies. This is something I love doing. I’m in my happy place when in the kitchen.

From not knowing a thing about cake decorating or holding a piping bag, I went from a grocery store bakery to my own business. There are people I thank every time I touch a bag of flour or sugar. Without them, I may have gone down another path with different hobbies. Who knows?

Motivation

Hobbies have this way of allowing you to hold on to your sense of identity and your sense of self, even as you age.

Reflection

As you sit back, take a deep breath, and relax, think about the hobby or hobbies you have. How long have you had these hobbies? Which one identifies you the most? Which do you enjoy the most?
