can you almost smell them??

I'm in a cookie swap so I made about 12 dozen of these Raspberry Thumbprints today...they are delicious, pretty, and very very easy...so they meet all your general cookie baking criteria...I would give you the recipe here, but I borrowed it from another blogger named Jeanne, she has all kinds of fun stuff over there at her blog...so you can get it here...
sorry I've been absent the past few days, I worked on Saturday and I've been held hostage by this book right here...












It's a sick addiction, my infatuation with everything this woman has ever written... (not under her Sci-fi JD Robb pen name).... but everything else....I think I've read almost everything she's ever written and if you are at all familiar with Nora Roberts, then you know that is a lot...there's even a book out there about all the books she's written...This is pretty typical Nora Roberts Faire...but what can I say? I'm a sucker for it...and it drives me completely bonkers when she does these triologies and you have to wait like 6 months in between the books...Like the "Bloodfever" series by Karen Marie Moning...omigosh I don't think the next one in that series comes out until like Aug 08....I'm sure it's some kind of writer's conspiracy to try to make us all go nutty

I finally got around to making my Creative Journal...I used a naked chipboard binder (81/2 x 11) by Making Memories from Hobby Lobby, the paper I used was Rhonna Farrer, Bo Bunny and Bazzill. For tabs I cut paper 6 x9 and stamped with CTMH boing font acrylic stamps...


here's the pictures....
Now the trick will be to actually get myself to use it so I can better oranize all the noise in my head...



I'm catching up on CP's also from Christy



Here's number 13



and number 14

These are a little simpler that my usual work...I don't know why that's just how it worked out...I'm pretty sure I need more stamps...I said as much to my husband earlier and I don't think he agrees with me....
I'm pretty sure he will though, after I'm done having sex with him...
what?
how do you think I got him to agree to a puppy?
night all....

You crack me up!

Love your journal! And yes, of course you need more stamps!

LOL! OMG, Amy you are just too funny! I spewed my coffee when I got to the end of this post!! I have to agree with Kylie...of course, you need more stamps! I am all for keeping the stamp companies in business. :D

Gorgeous work yet again, my friend! Not only do you have Mary Poppins living in your oven, but I do believe that you are channeling Martha...not only did you make 12 dozen cookies, but then you stamped bag toppers for them!?! I'm impressed {and feeling a bit lazy.} The layouts are beautiful...I love your use of "white" space. And I totally understand how you can be inspired by a piece and then the end product doesn't look anything like the original...that's the way inspiration works and I love it!!! smiles...

FUNNY (love it)!
Hey, I make those cookies, too! They're yummy. Yours look prettier, though.
