One More Cookie . . . Puhlease

Sometimes me think what is love, and then me think love is what last cookie is for.
Me give up the last cookie for you.
         ~ Cookie Monster


I have a terrible sweet tooth. I mean, really terrible. I inherited from my Grandma Heaton who could happily eat sweets all day long. If cookies are in the house, I don't stop 'til they're all gone. So, when my husband buys cookies, well, he hides them from me.

Remember that big 'ole move this summer? My Tom's employer paid to have a moving company pack us up, store our stuff for a month, and then move us into our new house. And, you know, God love 'em (and I really DO love those movers), movers don't ask questions. They just pile stuff into boxes and move to the next cabinet. Guess what?! When we were unpacking those TONS of kitchen boxes, we found random baggies of stale cookies with the spices, dish towels, soup pots, inside the crock pot . . . Nearly every box held a Crackerjack-like prize of candies and cookies.

Yep! Tom hides the cookies. It's everyone for himself, especially when it comes to cookies.

Given the above (my crazy, crazy sweet tooth), you gotta know one of my favorite long-time, all-time challenge sites is the {Cupcake Inspiration} challenge. Rachel Hope finds these amazing, amazing cupcakes to inspire our paper crafts. I mean, really, what's more fun than sweets and paper crafting? Certainly nothing I know of.  So, I about fell into a hyperglycemic, diabetic coma when Hope asked me to be a guest designer on her challenge blog and sent me this picture. That's the inspiration for this week's challenge sponsored by Crop Stop. Isn't that yummy?!

I flipped this fun and easy January sketch from I{heart}2stamp.

Guess what I found last night when I was pulling the last of the Christmas mugs out of the cabinet – Pepperidge Farm Chessmen behind one of the mugs! We think Tom was a squirrel in a previous life.
