February 19, 2010

Traveling is awesome. I have traveled by car, plane and train, but my favorite mode of travel is cruise ship. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to cruise to a meeting or to church? I could deal with that. Stop at the pool or the buffet or play a little shuffle board...

Cat Got Your Tongue?

February 3, 2010

Handmade is Best!

January 28, 2010

The cool thing about Flour Box cookies is that they are handmade. A person pushes the rolling pin. A person individually cuts out each cookie. And a person squeezes the piping bag to create the cookie design. I think that makes the cookies taste even better! Handmade is where it’s...
