Emmett's ready and waiting for a little shopping! He was excited because cousin Carter was going to be there, so it wasn't an all girls day. We went to Sweet Lizzie in Highland and American Quilts in Orem. Fun day filled with lots of eye candy.
Yes, I call my blog Burnt Cookies because I love to bake cookies but can't quite keep my focus on the task at hand. Often, the last batch of cookies ends up slightly overdone or downright burned (burnt?!). What distracts me? Checking Instagram, posting on my blog, writing in my online journal. And Pinterest and all those blogs that I love to read. Since I like to shop, I might find myself at the mall (it's really fun to be halfway across town and remember about the cookies in the oven) or at the quilt shop picking up fabrics for my stash. Sometimes, I'm on a trip with my travel-obsessed husband, or, as in March 2011, in the middle of the earthquake in Tokyo! I scrapbook, make quilts, and often read The Wall Street Journal (paper edition, not digital) in the morning with a chocolate chip cookie and Diet Coke at hand. I have an amazing husband who keeps me on my toes learning new things and working out at the gym. We love nothing more than to be together. We have four kids who married awesome spouses and blessed us with seven darling grandkids. I'm distracted and busy and love it.
This blog is where I share a bit of myself - it's my writing place and my memories place. My favorite photos are here - both photos of my family and images of things I love from my journeys.
I'm a writer/editor/proofreader and consider myself a lucky girl because I have had fun jobs at Kimberbell Designs helping with all things QUILTY and ADORNit where we quilted and scrapped. I taught an online workshop for Big Picture Classes called "Cut the Crazy Out of Christmas" and I share Christmas info and inspiration on the Cut the Crazy blog which my daughters and I keep.
