Each week I'm using Etsy's Pounce feature in order to discover new items "from undiscovered shops waiting for their first sale" as the Etsy site states. This week's welcome is extended to Visual Punctuation in New Jersey. This is how Liz describes the craftsmanship of these beautifully detailed cuffs: "This bracelet is made with delica beads on a loom. Delica beads are Japanese seed beads, which are consistent in size and color, making them ideal for loom work. The loom work is then hand stitched around a metal cuff to an ultra-suede backing. The metal base is adjustable, allowing the cuff to fit a multitude of wrist sizes." Sounds like a lot of work with beautiful end results! There are a nice variety of designs in her shop to choose from, here are a few to get you started:

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
Why did you just try singing the two songs above?
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?
Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?
Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
What disease did cured ham actually have?
How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?
Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
**Thanks to my Uncle Alan for passing on these funny thoughts!

Baking season has officially started. There is flour on the floor and I'm almost out of sugar. But I can say our family is truly enjoying the very yummy Snickerdoodle Cookies that came out of the oven yesterday afternoon. I used this simple recipe from Recipezaar:
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs thoroughly in a large bowl.
- Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
- Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture.
- Chill dough, and chill an un-greased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge.
- Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Scoop 1 inch globs of dough into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
- Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.
- Place on chilled un-greased cookie sheet, and bake 10 minutes.
- Remove from pan immediately.
If you would rather not bake your own, you can still enjoy snickerdoodles with some of these "sweet" products!

I wish I could try them all!
