The NEW news...
Ok. what have I been up to you might ask, well tons of stuff. First off like many of you I have been buried in snow the past week. Lots of shoveling and warm sweaters. I have also joined a new local organization for promoting shopping local which I am very excited about. So I have been really trying to keep buying local as much as humanly possible! It can be hard at times because of my Sons food allergies. Which brings me to food. I love food. I sometimes wish I went to the culinary. I really enjoy cooking!
So in my effort to make the world a sweeter place I offer my readers a simple and yummy recipe!
Banana Strawberry smoothies!
8-12oz of crushed ice
1 1/2 cp of stonyfarm strawberry yogurt
1 1/1 banana (cut up)
1 tsp of sugar
Pour into your blender, blend until it looks like ice cream, and eat!
num num!
Speaking of num num. I finally got my butt over to Beach Lake Bread. I wholesale and retail bakery of the main strip here in Honesdale. The breads are amazing and beautiful to boot! You can also purchase homemade teas (from my friend Gudren), pies, rolls, pastries, hummus, muffins, etc. I purchased a cheese croissant. Holy joy of eating it is (and I am not lying) the best croissant I have ever tasted. EVER. Every part was perfect, the flakiness, the buttery soft inside and the creamy sweet cheese. Really an amazing experience for your taste buds!

Now that I will probably gain 20lbs due to my cheese croissant addiction. I will leave you while I sob into my bathing suit.

Stay warm!

What have I been up to...
Well to tell you the truth, a little bit of everything! I have been sewing like a mad women, getting the shop in gear for Spring, and doing many side projects. The weather unfortunately has hindered some of my many projects, but at times helps me get things in order.
I spent the weekend organizing, and day dreaming of warm weather. Listening to my crazy mix of music on my ipod, and basking in any little pinch of sunlight wondering through the window. My brain is starting to buzz alive with new ideas (I think it may be solar powered )! My 4 year old Son has been nagging me to help him start his own mini zine. He adores some of the awesome artist zines we have at the shop and kept begging me to help him make one. Well, I finally got some time together to make that happen. And putting our 2 brains together was beyond fun and awesome! So I unveil to you our first mini zine
"Super Cider vs Evil Soda"
The Title was all my Sons making! He even laid out the store line (I only tweaked it a little bit). He helped me design the characters and put it all together! I am so proud of our little zine! He made copies for all his friends and even asked to have it on Etsy (smart kid). So if you would like a peak or to purchase our amazing mini zine, just hop on over to my Etsy shop and check it out! All proceeds will go to my little man.
