We are. . .adding on!

October 23, 2010
So. . .
I just put our Etsy shop on vacation for a while. Maybe a little while, maybe longer.


"Why," you ask?

We are. . .  well. . . expanding!

And by expanding I mean I will be expanding. Not Cantaloupe Corner.

Yep, you guessed it.  Baby #3 will be making an appearance sometime next summer!



But,
Me and pregnancy just don't get along.

I get sick. I mean really really, all day long, laying on the couch, puking up everything I eat,  type of  sick.

Managing a business, taking care of 2 little boys (and my father-in-law),  and trying to keep up with other motherly and wifely duties has become way more than this one little girl can handle. 


So, for now, I'm putting Cantaloupe Corner on hold so I can take care of myself and our soon-to-be new addition.  And because I am having a hard time prying myself off the couch. ugh.



After having 2 little dirt-loving, wrestling, bug-chasing boys, it sure would be nice to have some sugar and spice in our house. And think of all the adorable girly crafts, dresses, hair bows. . . *sigh*

So I'll secretly wish for a girl.

But boys are nice too.

My boys.

October 15, 2010
 You know how it is. The cobbler's kids have no shoes. They roofer's house leaks.  The screenprinter's kids wear clothes from where ever they are on sale for cheap (or the screenprinted mess ups).

But, I found some extra minutes and put together some shirts for my own little munchkins.

Little guy's "i fight bad guys" shirt was designed after this adorable tee at I am Momma Hear Me Roar (One of my new favorite blogs.) She does tons of cool boy crafts. And all of you who have boys know that boy crafts are HARD to find. 


My oldest boy's shirt is inspired my my hubby's new  baby. A 1960 something VW Bug! It is his project car that is in a million pieces in our garage right now and this kid loves "helping" his dad fix the bug.
The slogan came from an old silly song that we used to listed to on my grandma's record player.  "Hug hug hug hug a bug bug bug" (sang to the Duke of Earl tune).


You won't be seeing these in my shop but I am so excited to show them off. My kids have some personalized hip shirts just for them. I think I deserve some mommy brownie points.  yes?

Snacktime: "Oreo" Dinos

October 6, 2010
These scrumptious cookies are so good that no matter how many you make they never make it to the neighbors house.


This is arguably my new favorite roll-out cookie recipe.

 Impossibly simple and undeniably delicious! 

These were a special treat for my son's preschool class. They were having a lesson on dinosaurs. I think I'll make more of these for Halloween! Bat cookies!

This is my own spin on the classic "cakie" (cake mix cookie) recipe.  I prefer to use devil's food cake mix because I'm a chocoholic, but you can use any kind of cake mix you love.



Ingredients:
1 box cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
3 eggs
cream cheese frosting

1. Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl and cut in shortening and eggs using a pastry blender.
2. Use your hands to push dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 min.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4. Roll dough onto a floured surface and cut with your favorite cookie cutters. (don't forget to make 2 of each shape so you can make it into a sandwich.)
5. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes.
6. Cool 5 minutes on pans before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.


7. Frost cookie with cream cheese frosting and add another matching cookie of top for a cute and delectable sandwich. 
8. Enjoy! Make sure you save some for your hubby and kids.



These cookies will stay soft for days. So you can make a double batch and have some tomorrow too!
