today: jan 24
today was a day full of sugar and spice. Home Ec shop was hosting a bakesale for Doctors Without Borders so i whipped up a couple of batches of lavender shortbread, stitched up some wax paper envelopes and hopped on over for some sugar and socializing.
actually, there was a lot more socializing going on than sugar, at least for me. i picked up a bag full of amazingly gorgeous sweets and passed them all off to the mister. i did however partake of the italian poundcake. so very very good!
there were elvis cakes
salted brown butter rice crispy treats
more shortbread than you can shake a stick at
banana spice muffins
and so much more.
i headed home around 3pm and by that time we had brought in over $500! isn't that awesome? i need to head back sometime soon because jenny has some nifty packages of roving for needlefelting, a new selection of charm packs o' fun and i think i may be teaching a dilly bag class there soon.
**whoo-hoo! we made over $1000! thank you to everyone!
