Hi Again

3 Jan

And Happy New Year! There’s something about the start of a brand new calendar year that makes things seem a little brighter, more optimistic and kind of clean slate-ish. Yes, yes, there’s the post-holiday blues, but overall, it’s a fresh start to make your mark on 2012.

So obviously, my little blog has been sad and neglected lately. (My last post was three major holidays ago?? Yikes!) But I’m excited and (mostly) ready to get back at it.

But with some changes. First, I’m going to be less of a fussy perfectionist when it comes to my posts. Not every post will be super awesome fabulous, but they will offer something creative/fun/interesting I’d like to communicate. And that I hope you will like too!

Second, outfit posts….um, yeah. My photographer husband and I haven’t really gotten into a scheduling grove so I haven’t been taking outfit photos. I might do some on weekends or if I’m not totally disheveled by the day’s end, in evenings. But Instragrams in the mirror or snapshots of a notable piece will now be ok with me. I know it’s less interesting, but I’m going back to my first point – I need a creative outlet even if it’s not always perfect : )

And third, I’m allowing myself shorter posts for when I just have something to say. I promise I will not be one of those bloggers who just chatters endlessly without purpose (though there’s nothing wrong if that’s your thing). But sometimes it will be fun to talk about topics related to clothes and baking, not just what I wear and what I bake.

And so with that, something fun to get started. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to wear a necklace every day. Super easy, fun and totally doable! And now it’s your turn – what will you be starting new this year? How will you be making 2012 a great year?

Spooky Witch Hat Cookies

19 Oct

Halloween is just around the corner. Everyone knows it’s all candy all the time this time of year, but the fun of all that sugar buzz feeling fades probably around the time you stop Trick or Treating. I’d like to think these Spooky Witch Hat Cookies are just cute and playful enough to bridge Halloween candy into something a bit more grown up.

Ghost kitchen towels. From a very expensive store called Target : )

The inspiration for these cookies came from Pinterest. Sadly, I can’t even find the original pin. But in the suggestion, it recommended using those Keebler fudge cookies with chocolate stripes on one side and chocolate coating on the bottom. And then adding the Hershey’s kiss from there.

But let’s be honest, that doesn’t seem like much fun.
