brownie cards

Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm.... here's a photo of the peanut butter with fudge brownies I made Norm for his birthday last month. They were delicious AND pretty! I had printed out a couple of the photos to make a set of cards with and I finally listed them today. As I was putting them together, however, I realized I had made an error on the final size... I still put them together (a big step for me!) and they look really nice, but not perfectly matted. I listed them at a REDUCED price because of this little mistake. (Oh my gosh... as I'm writing this I'm looking at the photo and I'm getting a MAJOR sweet tooth... look away...)

You know... I have my bakery etsy site all set to go. I reserved the name back in August! I just haven't had the courage to list anything there yet. Another problem is that I procrastinate (surprise!). I know I have a tendency to "over think" each step and this can really get in the way of progress! I think my major hang up has been figuring out the best way to package the cookies so that they arrive in great condition. I think I'm going to have to do some trial runs so that I can overcome this worry. Hmmmm, I might have to see if I can find some volunteers who are willing to pay for shipping and a nominal "material" cost. That way I could do some initial orders at my other shop, test out the shipping, AND get feedback! I'm going to have to come back to this idea another day... My brain is too tired to think this out completely right now!

Hey! I felt good again today!!! AND I was able to play volleyball tonight! YEAH! I had a great time although I did feel like I was a half step behind all night. Sorry team! Did I mention how much I love my current team?! So much fun AND great personalities! Even when we lose (which we did twice tonight - at least we won one) we have a good time and no one gets crazy. I'm going to miss playing on Wednesday's for a couple weeks. My team has a bye next week and then the following week we'll be on vacation! It's just around the corner. Summer is REALLY almost here... ahhhh...

ps... got a call from the surgery center... EGD is scheduled for July 10th.


  1. oh, oh, oh, pick me! pick me! pick me!!! You'd think gaining 15 lbs (shh!) would stop me from feeding my mouth but any baked goods out of your kitchen I'd gladly devour! Tell me how much $ you need then sign me up to be your guinea pig!


    OK... you're first on my list! I'll make sure that I send you the ones with no calories (or fat!)...

    I'll figure out exactly how I'm going to do it and then I'll let you know the details. I think we may have to wait until you're back from your trip. Next week is super busy with end of school year and Leila birthday and then we're going on a trip and then YOU'RE going on a trip... It's that busy summer schedule!

    This will be perfect that will also give me some time to get some of the background stuff done. New shop labels, packaging research, etc.

    THANKS GIGI! You're the best!!!

  3. Sign me up as well. I can taste the tarts now. Love those things, or for that matter anything that you make. Ü Of course I would have to hide them from my family.

    Luv ya

  4. OK "Cox Family!" You're on the list too! :)

    I guess that the tarts are going to have to be on my baking list! I'll do some research on special "invisible to others" packaging...

    Love you!


Thanks for stopping by to visit... AND especially for leaving me a message! :)
