For my son's class Halloween party this year, we decided to put together some rubberstamped treat bags for all of his classmates. I had just enough cotton drawstring bags/pouches left over from a previous craft project, so we opted to use those. I had a custom rubber stamp made up to personalize all of the bags and then used some random rubber stamps I had. The bags were filled with Bubble Gum Smarties, a bouncing eye ball, an orange furry creature and a chocolate eyeball. I'll also be making a batch of spooky Halloween cupcakes for the party on Monday.

I've finally gotten around to making some cupcake postage stamps from a photo of those snowflake cupcakes I made a couple of years ago. I intend to have a wider selection available later on down the road, but considering it took me this long to create this stamp, it may be a good while before the other ones are added.

A few years ago, on a whim I whipped up a batch of Peanut Butter Cookies from scratch for a New Year's Eve party. The cookies were a hit and I've wanted to make them again, but the recipe seemed to have vanished that night and hasn't been seen since. I've attempted to make more using other recipes, but they just weren't quite the same. The only thing I remember about this particular recipe is that it only used 3, maybe 4 ingredients... with one of them obviously being peanut butter. Does anyone out there happen to have a tried and true recipe for peanut butter cookies that only asks for a few ingredients? If so, care to share it?

Lucky Magazine has put together this really cute gift wrap kit just in time for the ever approaching winter holiday season... At around $45 ($35+$8 S&H + tax) it's available for ordering online. The shipping estimate is 3-7 business days via UPS. I've been seeing those miniature luggage type boxes that the kit comes in popping up everywhere lately.

The Reynolds Company has come out with a new sealable bag; not just any type of bag, but a Kangaroo Bag. According to the website, the Kangaroo Bag has one larger bag with a smaller bag attached. Another pouch forms in between those two bags. Hmmm...

The Reynolds Company has some fun Ghost Cupcakes I think I may try my hand at this year for Halloween. The ghosts are made of melted white chocolate chips and then stuck into the icing on the cupcake. If you pour the melted chocolate thin enough, the ghosts are semi-transparent!
