Holy busy summer batman!!  Can you believe that it's already the middle of August?? Wow!

I'm really looking forward to spending some time in the kitchen this weekend to get danynn's cookies ready  Cheesy  I've decided to make 3 different kinds instead of only 2 ~ I hope she won't mind! Roll Eyes  When I tossed out her likes/dislikes to my facebook folk, I got too many good suggestions to only make 2.

Thanks for sharing the link on how send cookies safely - Would never have thought to individually wrap them before packing in order to reduce breakage...  What a great idea!

Anyhow~ Happy cookie making everyone Smiley

Received!!!    Grin

AND they're gorgeous!! I absolutely LOVE the yarn that you chose for these~ so soft and nice to touch!  Even my son picked them up & rubbed them on his cheek  Smiley

Thank you so much & thank you for being sweet enough to send a 2nd package - will be sure to let you know when they arrive, too.

Photos of these (and the other 2 sets from my other awesome partners) to follow early next week - camera is in my office.

Thanks again!!!

656  COOKING / Dessert / Ms. Pac-Man Cake on: August 04, 2011 10:38:12 AM
So I've become "the cake maker" of the family even though I didn't necessarily ask for the job...  Requests generally come in about 2 weeks before any(&every)ones' birthday...

The most recent request was from my lovely niece who turned 11 last Friday~ She drew a picture of the video game screen for Ms. Pac-Man and texted it to me with the question "Can you do this for me Auntie Queen"?

Here are the results:


Despite popular belief, it does actually say "Happy Bday" - Not "Happy Boat"  Cheesy
Yes, I completely forgot to leave room to write on the cake, and yes, there were some issues with the covering & transport




(this smile made every bit of effort worth it!)






(she haaaaad to have Ms. Pac-Man!)

For my cakes I usually do a centre filling of butter cream layered with slices of fresh strawberries (or blueberries, depending on the recipient)...  I like to think that adding fresh fruit makes the cake a little healthier...  or something  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone~

Yaaay!!  I'm really looking forward to this swap... So glad I was able to join.  I'm going to have to try out some new recipes before the sendout date!

Kittymom ~ Join!!!  No bake sounds good to me  Smiley  I am currently baking a cake for my nieces' bday and am sweating in my kitchen!!

About the swap~ I just had a bit of a funny conversation with my (teenaged) son about this that you might like...

Me - So I joined a cookie swap on Craftster
Him - A cookie swap? Like you're going to swap cookies with complete strangers?
Me - Yep. Neat, eh?
Him - NO!! Don't do it mom! What if you get matched with some crazy person who makes pot brownies or something that could hurt you??
Me - Are you serious?
Him - Yes, of course I'm serious. You're not allowed to do this one.  Crochet squares were fine, this is weird.
Me - Are you serious?  ...this is Craftster.  Only other geeky crafters like me are on there. I'm fairly certain that no one is joining this swap with malicious intentions...
Him - Well. Go ahead. But don't expect me to eat them.

 Grin

I love teenagers.

so according to the tracking at Canada Post, my packages to my ladies in ontario is 'delayed' due to 'temporary volume surge'. It won't even give me a location of it .... it's in the Neverland that is the postal service. I'll keep checking on the status of them and will pm my partners once they move.

Don't fret Myrdda! They will get there! My package to you has been on its way for weeks! I suppose we should be happy this wasn't a cupcake swap! Smiley

Hahahaha  Grin  Thanks for the unexpected laugh (about the cupcakes) ~ I can't decide if I'm annoyed by this insane delay, or if I'm happy cos it's dragging out the swap just a little bit longer for me...  I still get excited when I head to the post office every afternoon, thinking... "maybe today will be the lucky day..."   Wink

Looking forward to seeing these squares Myrrda - Thank you again!

there are some very cool squares happening here! i'm so excited for mine to come in - I check every day to see what's happening with the postal strike, but other than a whole lot of nothing, it's pretty dull news.

(Canada Post has been ordered back to work!!!)

OK. This whole "Canada-Post-on-Strike" thing is really starting to annoy me!!  I can't believe the timing! I'm honestly not sure I've used the post office other than to receive bills, magazines & invites for like... hmm... well, since I was was about 12 & had penpals in the pre-facebook/email days!! This is not cool.

I'm generally not a fan of government back to work legislation overriding union rights... BUT... Am kinda hoping for it so that I can get my squares soon! (How selfish of me  Smiley)

Whenever this silliness ends, I'm sure I'll finally receive the rest of my packs & will love them even more, now that I've had to wait a friggin month for them...  Thanks in advance to all of my partners  Kiss

 K>

(p.s. Just re-read that and it seems kinda angry.  Was intended to be funny...   Grin  Am frustrated, but not angry.)
