In all the flurry of recent activity, I am very late in giving a big thanks to all those nice folks who have featured us in their blogs recently, some with interviews. Here is a very belated thank you list (and I am sorry if I am missing anyone)!

The Storque (etsy’s blog)
The Peach Tree
Baby Anne Quilts
Chatty Cha
Andrew Thornton
Rabbit Kinney
PS I Love this
I’m missing someone, aren’t I?

Also a big thanks to everyone who bought from our little company the last 2 months. We’re nearing almost 500 items sold on etsy and the Blue Apron has already sold out of all 36 dozen shortbread cookies we delivered in less than a week. Yay! Nice to be able to bring our cookies to our neighborhood, as oddly enough, most of our sales are out of state. We also had the pleasure of donating a large gift box to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens: Passport to Summer event, as part of a raffle and silent auction to benefit the children’s educational programs at the garden. Sooooo…yeah, we’ve been busy, and I have to admit that I am having a hard time focusing on design work, but we’ve managed to steal some nice moments of summertime lounging on the grass. This weekend we are planning on going to the beach (Claudine seems to have conquered her fear of grass, let’s see about the sand) and trying not to think about cookies for 2 days!

    My blog, The Orange Room, featured your Etsy shop last week, but it wasn’t anything huge like an interview. Just a little mention. 🙂

    Oh, last night I made those chocolate butterscotch bars. They are amazing! I gave a batch to the crew who came to plant a tree in my yard this morning, I think they will love me forever. 🙂

    thank you! Wow, good job on the butterscotch bars. We realized that maybe the recipe was a little more involved than what Small Mag was used to so I am glad to hear that someone tried it.

    I might make another batch for a family cookout tomorrow. If I do, maybe I’ll send a link to picture. They were so delicious!

    The combination of masterful baking, tasty creations, wonderful customer service, and just plain good people… is a sure sign that you’ll be awfully busy as your business flourishes. You all are GREAT!
