Shop News, Cook-a-long news**Graphic Heavy**

I have been busy putting my list for the shop into action. I went out and purchased supplies today to help in the creation of handmade products for my shop and I have been trying my hand at cute fashion doll clothes too.
New in the Shop: "Sweet Elegance" A handmade card by me (Bran) It has vintage lace trim, different paper stocks, some zig-zag stitching, stamping and 6 hand-sewn vintage buttons for easy removal. Here is what she looks like, there are only 7 in total, they are about as identical as can be for handmade, there will be slight differences and she is only $3.50 USD plus a dollar shipping. I have many more styles on the way too.

Now Onto The Cook-A-Long!

I made my batch the other day and had my dad come down and try them out. It has been the first time in these past few weeks I have seen him truly smile. He said it was like re-living a childhood memory. With that said, between my parents, brother, the package I mailed to hubby, my son, and myself...ahem..there are not any left. (I did mention that I am addicted to peanut butter cookies right?!) Thank goodness I walk over 4 miles every morning during the week! So here is the picture breakdown of the process. ***Again Graphic Heavy***
