Cloud Nine?


Okay...just as i promised....
Ya ready?


I worked so hard on my room this week...
Hubby was such a big help...
keeping the kiddos from climbing up on Sunday..
and then using his strong muscles to put everything "upstairs"
on Thursday...and he hasn't even seen it yet...
the finished project...
so much fun for me....and him!



and just a little side table, by the window...gotta have some charm!
I haven't made anything yet...
I'm hoping soon!

Exhibit A
These are my second favorite cookies..
they actually are fast becoming my 1st favorite...
sooooo yummy!!




The recipe!!




From such a great book!
It is filled with such great ideas for entertaining your weekend guests, or a dear friend..
or yourself...
see exhibit A
teehee
There is no evidence of actual baked goodies...
but i did bake them... and eat some...and share many!!



Oh My!!
Okay..how many Zebra sightings have you made lately!!
I have seen this print everywhere..
is everyone else obsessed with this print like me??
Elise told me there were zebra print rugs at Target!
And she wasn't kidding...
they had towels...and pillows...and vases...
oh my!!
I didn't get anything...
there..
But next door at The LOBSTER...
I found this little bit of fabric in the clearance section..for $1.60.
so..i'm gonna make me some coasters...
to go along with my new no sew side table cloth...
you know i'm so excited!!
Yippee!!
oh...and a Joxy too...a zebra Joxy...
I started on a black and white swag and wreath last spring and haven't finished them quite yet...
zebra print??
maybe that is why i am drawn to the black and white..
i Love black and white checks...like Mary Engelbreit..
they are in my kitchen curtain and a cakestand that hubs gave me before we got married..
i am being cautious to not go overboard...
i mean, who loves THAT much zebra print??
maybe a Momma Zebra loving her babies...
and maybe me...
so far...i've got a no sew table cloth...(a piece of zebra fabric laying across my tiny side table...)
and coasters...
i better go work on those in my new studio..
should i call it something??
I like Cloud Nine..
but i'm not gonna be doing any sleepin' up there!
What do you think!!??
Any and all suggestions welcomed!!
And have a Joy-filled day!!
See you tomorrow for another Cup Of Joy!!

ps..i just went over to Elise's blog to linky-do...
oh my goodness...GO see what she made!!
Oh my goodness...i thought for sure it was for me..
it wasn't..
i'm sad.
tell her she needs to make these for her shop...
she is wondering if she should...
i say YES!!!

Well I love Cloud Nine! Can I come over and play? :) I wish I had an "area" just for me to craft in. Sadly I have to get it all out and put it all away.

I just don't know why my family can't eat around my craft stuff at the dining room table. :)

And can't wait to try out this new Cookie recipe thanks for sharing!

Joy- Oh, I want to come over! It's almost like your own little treehouse! Can I be a member of your club??:)

I told Elise that you were my sweet sunshine and she is my bright moonlight (she is such a Night Owl- like me)! Love you both! Lori

Joy, You make me laugh!! I almost wanted that zebra rug and I didn't even like zebra until you did!! Maybe when they go down a little more...
I think we must have been separated at birth!! I got that fun Valentine-y print like on your header and then came here and saw it too. Its like you're in my head!!
I love your new studio. I {heart} your studio so much!! Almost makes me wonder if I can turn our attic into one. Of course, we have an extra room in this house, so I don't really need one, I just love the charm of yours!!

Wow, Joy! I had told Drew that you were working on transforming that space... he was skeptical. My guy just has no vision. How great to have that space all for your crafting!!! And to be able to leave stuff out and still have a place to sleep (plus a sleepmate that is happy!). Congrats, congrats. I know that makes you happy. Can't wait to see it in person. It looks great! I'm so happy for you! (Now lets see how spacious your bedroom has become, and Lee's smiling face!!!)

Oh how neat of cloud nine...I am a small office but need to get a few things out so I can just shut the door and forget about the outside world for just a few moments.
