    Thanks Nan..... business is good but crazy... still working on the other venture it involves less "work" :)

    Jen, I didnt send you cookies, I thought about it but I didnt :(

    Funny story-been making cupcakes to send to DBF's work as a fundraiser for DD's dance, from scratch. I ran out of time on sat and made box ones for preschool took a bite :crazy2: "these are gross. What did I do wrong", DBF came in and said..."um you made them from a box, so nothing and since no one there has had your good cupcakes they wont notice" :rotfl2::lmao:

    Afternoon all

    YUMMMM cookies:) I so see making some in my future too.maybe tomorrow when I have the house to myself.

    prayers for the gas situation to get better in the sandy wake. 2 crews from Green Mnt. power have headed south now that western vt is all back on.1 FB pic looked to be abt 20 trucks in the 1st group.

    so glad the weekend is here. its been a LONG week with out the 3rd person who keeps me sane at work, dealing with the wacko woman all weeks been a challenge. My tongue is very sore from bitting it all week

    Left to do today
    laundry?
    dinner? left over and make some mashed tater
    finish sorting pics and order what I need from walgreens before sale runs out.

    guess that's it.

    How light weight are you looking for? paper pad cover type? J's has a pack that has 3 colors of chipboard but the white and the black are thin like cereal box or paper pad cover and the kraft is thick like cover board-doesnt go though a machine. :)

    I was thinking cereal box like... to make a thin book... don't want anything too bulky..
    I wonder if I double the kraft paper it would work???

    Thanks Nan glad the words worked, I still haven't ever hooked up my cricut to the computer. I would think 2 layers of kraft would work. And yes you need to eat lunch!!!!

    If you're just covering it (and it won't show through), why not use cereal boxes? I've done that in the past.
