I wanted to start off by apologizing for being so sparse here.
Life...well...it is crazy here at The Cookie Puzzle.
So....what has been going on?
Well...this week, I posted some really
cute mini Farm Animal cookies.
After receiving the mini cookie cutters for
Christmas 2012, I am happy how they
turned out, and to get them off my bucket list.
Do you have a bucket list?
I do....and it is so long, I am not sure I will ever get to it.
I have been really enjoying joining Link Parties lately,
and this week, I was honored to be featured in not
one, but TWO link parties.
These little bites of yumminess were featured at
Do you like link parties, I do, I love them.
They are a great way to gain blog traffic.
They are a great way to meet amazing new blog friends.
AND... you can find wonderful new blogs to follow!

If you host a link party, or join one that I don't, please let me
know...one can never Link Party too much!
Ok...now....I want to share something with you.
I try to keep my personal life, well, personal, but
my personal life has been preventing me
from blogging and baking like I normally do.
I have been working on a BIG PROJECT!
The biggest project I have ever taken on in my life.
I would say it has consumed every weekend since
Wanna know what it is?
Well...here is a little hint.
Then this happened.
Then this happened!
Have you figured it out?
My family is building a new house!
And by WE...I me...WE!
We contracted the concrete, framing and roof, but
most of everything else is US!
Well..we are having a little help from close friends,
but most of what is being done is being done
with our own hands.
So most weekends, I am yielding a hammer
in place of a whisk.
So....if I am MIA for a bit..
I have not disappeared...I am just a little
I work a full time job, and have 2 days to
try to work on the house, bake recipes, take pictures,
edit pictures, write blog posts, join blog parties
Sorry..please don't take it personally,
I still love you...and still love baking and blogging.
I am not sure how much of the new
house I will be sharing here, maybe
a little update here and there, but
I don't want to chronicle the whole
process here, this is a baking blog, right.
AND...we have a pretty distinct taste in house styles.
When people see it, we get mixed reactions.
If you follow me on Pinterest my
House Ideas, will give you a gimps of our decorating
and design taste.
So...there you go
that is what I have been up to.
Until next time
