It seems that
I have completely misplaced my voice.
Feeling pretty crummy.
Just resting and crocheting a little.
I did manage to make Skyleigh a new hat.
And took some pictures to show you.
Here’s something fun to try with your kids this fall… Candy Corn Cookies. No real candy corn is involved :) They were easy and always turn out so cute!
You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe. We always use Grammy Snelling’s sugar cookie dough.
When your cookie dough is finished, divide it into 3 portions. Then use gel food coloring to make the orange and yellow sections. I make a slightly larger amount yellow, then some orange, leaving a smaller portion plain white.
They look suspiciously like play dough at this point!
Fold a piece of wax paper or parchment paper so that it fits in a loaf pan. Smoosh the dough into the loaf pan… orange first, then yellow and finally the plain sugar dough. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just get your layers in there:
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is thoroughly chilled and firm. Remove and use the wax paper to help coax the dough loaf out of the pan.
Carefully cut into thin slices:
Cut each slice into little triangles. They’re already looking like “candy corn.” Dust with sprinkles or sugar and bake per your recipe’s instructions.
Better Homes and Gardens offers this quiz to help you decide what color to paint your walls, based on your answers to eight questions.
Hmm. Apparently my color personality is YELLOW.
And strangely, it came out yellow all 3 times I took it…
(I couldn’t decide if my favorite season was spring, summer, or autumn).
(Because I am NOTHING, if not decisive).
Sooo... What color is your personality?!
Are you asking what, exactly, am I talking about?
…Oh, just this teensy weensy little thing I used to call my
If you could see inside my head right now, it would totally look like THIS:

Autumn has been making it’s presence felt here in WY. Actually, fall arrives here much sooner than many parts of the country :) The leaves are mostly gone and it is freezing nearly every night now.
Pumpkins are one of my favorite fall themes and these sweet little pumpkin booties make me smile. I’m so happy with out they turned out!
There’s even a matching hat.
I ♥ them!
Sweet autumn punkin’ toes in sizes 0-12 months are up in the shop.
What have you all been working on this week?
