Happy National Cookie Day! Cookbook Project Announcement!


If you will all send me your favorite cookie recipe with a photo if possible, I will put them altogether into a cookie book via PDF file and upload it so you can all have a copy.  Won’t this be fun!?  Come on let’s all make it happen.  So many times we get pumped about something and don’t finish it! Like where in the world is the round robin letter??? Or photos for November??? Not a one! Come on peeps help me out here! Send your recipe and photo to notquitejunecleaveratgmaildotcom. Of course you know to replace the at with a @ and the dot with a .

HEY I HAVE A GREAT IDEA! I tell you what, I will make this super easy.  December’s photo theme is COOKIES!  So send a recipe WITH a photo and you have killed to birds with one stone!  I will pick a winner from the cookie photos sent in! Can it be any easier?  Play along here…I need some inspiration! And let me bait you a bit more.  There will be a prize other than a very cool cookie book from Not Quite June Cleaver & Friends and a $20 Snapfish gift certificate.  I will throw in a one of a kind Not Quite June Cleaver Apron, handmade by yours truly.

The deadline is the same as the photo contest – last day of the month.  I will begin working on the cookie booklet as soon as the entries start arriving.  Then the first week of January I will announce the winner and finish up the booklet and and upload the pdf file so you can all have a copy!

Okay, there you have it! Let’s kick of December the right way!  Join the fun!  Have a great weekend.


Welcome December!

As you might have noticed I have slacked off on my posts.  I know you all understand how real life can get in the way of our pretend life on here.  But I do have some really cool things coming up.  Giveaways, book reviews…all sorts of things.  Just not every day.  I tried.  I really did.  But sometimes I am so uninspired.  My food issues have really put a damper on things too.  Apparently I am having some serious gluten issues which must be resolved.  But in the quest to find suitable recipes I have found a real treasure! Dish Towel Diaries is an amazing blog and if you have any need or know of anyone with need of delicious gluten free recipes, it is your place to go.  AND she is doing 31 days of gluten free cookies starting today!  So check it out. And her cookbook as well.

I did manage to get the desktop calendar made for December – enjoy!

Small Calendar

Thought I would also give you a little sneak peek at our Christmas Tree.  A bit unorthodox (as are we) but turning out really pretty.



I hope you will check back with me soon and happy December 1st to everyone!
