We HaVe A WiNnEr WiNnEr ChICkEn DInNer and WhAtCha WorKinG On WeDneSdaY...

Good morning everyone!! We have a BinGo winner!! it is my good Pal Shirley of Wolf Spirits!! Thank you all again for playing and making this such a fun game..Shirley I will have these out to you by the end of the week..;)
Okay here is what I have/had been working on...I made this basket for our new neighbors next door..We took the basket and cookies over to them last night...Their names are Brittany and Travis and they are expecting their first baby a boy on May 22nd..They are going to name him Landon James..I thought she was going to have a boy..but I kept things gender neutral just to be sure...They are a young Navy Couple and cute to boot..The above photo is the basket with everything in it...I love those gerbera daisys they are my favorite!!!
here is what I put inside..I put in some handsoap, body wash gel, body lotion, my linen/room spray in Snuggle Baby, a little angel, a baby book, I wrapped up some magazines for her and him..a little container of gingerbread mix for tea..
I am so happy with the way these all turned out..I just finished them all yesterday...The item on the left is a burp cloth with a little vintage ducky embroidered on it..the backing is soft blue flannel, The Center (my favorite) I love these little vintage designs and the right is a little waffle towel that has baby items in it...
I used my newest cookie cutters and made sugar cookies.. They turned out so neat..going to make my salt dough ornaments next using these...
and last but not least my little sister gave me this simple yummy cookie recipe..They are called chocolate chip pumpkin spice cookies...they are soft and cake like.. you will be amazed at how easy they are to whip up..
Chocolate chip pumpkin spice Cookies
1 box of spice cake mix
1 can 14oz (I believe) of canned pumpkin
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
Mix the first two ingredients and fold in the chips
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees...
There was that simple or eggs or oil nothing...:) I used a big scoop and they don't spread so you can get alot on the pan.;) it made 30 cookies..
Well that is it for me today..I am finishing up making some items for some fellow followers and trying to get them out soon..I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday everyone..Thank you again for playing along with Bingo Take care.;)
