Bet you didn’t think you were going to hear from me today, but better late than never, right? It’s been a bit crazy here, and I’ve been trying to catch up on some things, and have a special email that will be sent to you a bit later on today, so please keep an eye out for that! If you’re in the U.S., I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and that you’ve had a relaxing weekend! We enjoyed ours. It was small with only me, Kurt, his mother and our son, Cameron, but we sure did eat a lot! Our oldest daughter, Alex, is in Canada, wasn’t able to make it, but we’re hoping she and her boyfriend will be here next year. Emma is finishing up her internship and presentation for her master’s degree and was working, so we missed her as well.

And one of my most favorite products is this sugar duster from OXO. I really like playing with this thing, and when I do, I just want to sugar dust ALL the things! LOL It’s especially helpful when decorating Linzer cookies, putting confectioners’ “snow” on gingerbread houses, and more.
