Alright!! So, today is the 12th Day of Christmas and as promised we are going to be having a party here tonight and I'll be taking comments and names all day if you want to get your name in for the mug drawing! I would like for ya'll, when you leave your comment, to tell what new plans you may have made for the new year. Not necessarily resolutions but just something you'd like to accomplish or do this year. But if don't want to that's okay too; just leave your name for the drawing. I know I've got a BIG list of stuff I want to do!
When the party starts, after about 6:00 pm ( and ends at midnight as does your chance to get your name in!) central time, let's say, I'll be doing sort of a timeline thing. Updating my post as the night goes along. Not sure how long I'll last and I'll probably be baking and such as we go. Ya'll are encouraged to comment all along too.
So, these are the mugs you get to choose from. (Click on the photo to enlarge and get a better look) I thought I had more of a variety of color but the reds are very popular! Well, anyway, it's a free mug! These are my standard size which hold about 12 oz. They are microwave and dishwasher safe but be aware they get very hot if put in a microwave. So, let the festivities begin!! Are any of ya'll having 12th Night parties of your own?? If you are, what does that entail?
*Wow, this many comments and it's only 8:30 a.m. my time! I may need more cupcakes! I thought I'd wait until this afternoon before I start baking to maybe get a better idea of how many I need, since the coin has to be put in the batter. Heck, if I get a lot more comments than what I'm thinking now I'll just bake another batch and give away 2 mugs! On, and you people from Canada put your name in! I don't think shipping would be too bad. I've shipped there before and it's not bad for a light mug!
*Hey People! Keep those comments coming! I'm still trying to decide on a cupcake recipe! Jack requested something a little on the healthy side; maybe carrot cake or a wheat/ fruit combo. I know, it's still a cupcake but at least it's not white flour! lol! I'll be glazing and firing more pottery today but still checking in! Just talk amongst yourself!
*Hey, here I am again!! We are about to eat supper and then I have to work on glazing pottery but I'm still here! I'm really enjoying the comments and appreciate ya'll participating so well. Hopefully, I'll finish with the pottery in short order and get that firing going so I can check in more often.
*Okay! I'm back for good! Finished the pottery and have the kiln loaded and ready to fire. Well, I'm going to go take a shower and then I'll be back! Won't take long. Hey, now, I know I have many readers who have probably read for quite some time but never, ever commented so don't ya'll be shy if you want to get your name in for the drawing. This isn't just for my regular commenters!
*Hey!! I got some spiked eggnog and Jack and I are watchin' 'Aliens and Cowboys'!! It's not near as stupid as I thought it would be! Besides, it's got Daniel Craig in it! Wooweee! That man could eat crackers in my bed anytime! lol! Oh, I'm kinda leanin' towards chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing now. There's a real yummy looking recipe for that in this new Cooking Light book I got.
*OK,OK I go t one!!! My plans for this coming year might be........to get married!!! Yep! you read that right!! Maybe, we'll see!! ha!!!! Jack's about talked me into it! Just kidding, he hasn't had to talk me into anything. I'm just kinda gun-shy!!!
* Now, ya'll realize it's gonna take a few days for me and Jack to eat through these cupcakes and find the coin. Well, unless by chance we hit it on the first one! Anyway, ya'll bear with me!
*OK, I'm up, well, I've been up for some time actually, but anyway, I'll be posting the cupcakes soon with everybody's name on them. I may have to get Allen to help eat these things! I got about 19-20 names I think. This may take a day or so or three! Jack is sick so I'm having to take care of all the animals and I'm firing and have several other things to do today. LOL! But I'll be back soon!
