Theme for our August 2011 swap is ‘Anything that we don’t normally do’….I used the Simply Sent kit which can be ordered from our new Idea Book & Catalog. The kit includes everything you need to make quick, attractive, embellished cards. Love it!

Saturday we attended the annual Peddler’s Fair in Benicia, CA. It was beautiful (hot) weather and here are pictures of my afternoon favorites which included jumbo corn dogs, new balsamic sweet onion chips, soaps that were made to look like pretty stones and other fun stuff. Great day that we ended by having Mexican dinner at LaTapatia restaurant.

  This year I baked 7 dozen chocolate chip with walnut cookies, bagged 4 to a cello bag, stamped a cute little ‘chocolate’ tag and tied the bags off with pink ribbon. C&H Interns sold more than $2000. this ear at their Baked Goods table. Employees donated baked goodies, the interns sold them to employees. Bake sale funds help provide afterschool and summer meals to children at risk of hunger in your community. Since 2003, bake sale funds have helped serve more than 5.3 million nutritions meals and snacks to low-income children.

My newest favorite food is the Naked Burrito. Everything is layered in the bowl without using a tortilla. Delicious!

Polly Jones made the pinwheels and decorated holder and surprised me with them. I love them, thank you Polly! I love having these things sitting at my workstation at C&H. They make me happy.
