Post Thanksgiving - Pre Christmas Craziness.

After last week's Thanksgiving orders, I really needed a break from the kitchen. I love the actual baking, I'm just not used to being up on my feet all day long and with all the cleaning up, labeling and packaging I was ready to spend some time outside my tiny kitchen. Thanksgiving  was exactly what i needed. I had a great meal, a bonfire, fresh Connecticut air, great turkey and amazing spicy sausage stuffing. mmmm...

Another great thing about my Thanksgiving? I got orders for Christmas! Woohoo!! This time they will be shipped to different locations and as - wait for it.... -  corporate gift packages instead of my usual cookie bags, so today I went on a mission to find cute, sturdy, green and price conscious packaging... ehh... my feet hurt and came back with random baking supplies... How did that happen? I'm not sure. I realized it was too much to ask for. If it was cute, it was too small... if it was green, it was ugly and if it was sturdy, it wasn't green and more expensive than what was gonna be inside of them. Boo to packaging! It's so wasteful yet so necessary. How about a cookie postcard?

You don't need to write anything in it, when you get this in your mailbox, you can just assume someone feels you deserve a treat. Peel the stamp, and enjoy! And- how cute are the Simpsons stamps?

I will be very busy starting next week getting ready for the Biblioball 2009. I will selling baked goods at the fundraiser which is hosted by The Desk Set and the proceeds go to literacy for incarcerated kids. Check out their website for tickets! They expect between 300 and 450 people at the event so that's a lot (a LOT) to prepare for. Wish me luck!
