just a little bit better

Oh boy...those low days throw me for a loopdy loo. I'm back on track. Sad, sure. But more myself.

I'm busy making stuff to put on the store, hopefully next week. This house is one I made ages ago but it's one of my favorites and definitely in the direction that these little abodes are going.

Oh, guess what...I'm planning to be among the first customers tomorrow at the Grand Opening of the new Paper Source in Reston. I can't believe that there will really be a Paper Source just 20 minutes from my house. (Although I guess Alexandria and Georgetown aren't too much further, the hassle involved with going to either location keeps me away)

If you are interested in joining the fun of Club Little House, I have just a few openings. Email me and let's talk about it.

Heavens, no. I didn't make that wonderful little cupcake. I bought it at Whole Foods. It was so ooey gooey. In fact, Rich's first ooey gooey words after his first taste was "You're not going to believe it!" I have to admit that when I first tasted it, I wasn't sure what it was that I wasn't going to believe. But after my mouth was nearly glued shut by the ooey gooeyness of it all, I knew what he meant for me to not believe. Oh, and as if sin needs a bit of help, there was a glob of raspberry goo in the middle of it all.

Hi Amy - I've been following your blog and was totally shocked to find that you'll be at the Paper Source opening tomorrow. Well, me too!

I had no clue you were a local ...

"Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do..." Eph 6:8

I cried when I read your blog...if I cried and do not know you, imagine how your Heavenly Father..who knows and loves you feels about your pain...He is your Dad...and feels for you like you feel for Baby

My mouth is watering after the ooey gooey story! Can you tell a little more about the wrapper! Is that lace? It is soooo hard to find interesting wrappers for special cupcakes!

Stef said...

Yes,yes, yes, I'm interested in Club Little House!
I am a quilter-I am thinking mini quilts, in 1930s or civil war reproductions. And today I am trying a mini rag rug project. We're just learning polymer clay mini techniques, and it's very fun, but I'm not sure I'm ready to share.

I would love to be in Club Little house- I thought I was/am but have never known about when to make anything for swaps- I didn't know you had the wonderful Magazine! I love that! I participated in Vanessa of Fanciful Twist's Blog party tonight and one of the people who came to visit me had a link to it on her Blog and I am so tickled to have found all this- and you!
Please let me know more about Club Little House- I have a small doll house that I put together with my husband. Its a cupcake/quilt shop!
Thank you for all the wonderful Inspiration!

I think Sweet Sassy and I will be attempting those cupcakes on our own one of these days very soon. You know, her mother is an exceptional baker and cook and certainly we could replicate it... perhaps not in all of its ooey gooey glory but we will try!

Perfect Dessert Alert: At Whole Paycheck: vanilla cheesecake filling, topped with 1/2 inch of chocolate ganache, a dollop of barely sweetened whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Perfect. Even greater than the sum of its parts. Definitely.

A Paper Source visit sounds fun! I hope you had a great day!

I read this quote in my devotionals today, and thought of you:

“We give you thanks,
Gentle One who has touched our soul.
You have loved us from the moment of our first waking
and have held us in joy and in grief.
Stay with us, we pray.
Grace us with your presence
and with it, the fullness of our own humanity.
Help us claim our strength and need,
our awesomeness and fragile beauty,
that encouraged by the truth
we might work to restore
compassion to the human family
and renew the face of the earth."
--Janet Schaffran and Pat Kozak

Just sending a cyber hug your way. Those sad days seem unbearable but it is a testimony to the love you have for Baby and his significance in your life. BUT I hope the sun shines brightly (although differently) for you again soon!
