I wanted to announce that I will be on "business vacation" from November 1-8. I have decided that I need a break to de-stress and catch up on all the other aspects of my life! I will be getting my house in order, spending some quality time with the kids, just not even thinking about my business! It will be sooooo nice!

I'm leaving my etsy shop open for Holiday Pre-orders. I will be responding to convoes and emails. I will probably still be in the forums and chat rooms during my regular job - what else is there to do? But no selling and no stress! Yeah!

Thanks to all my customers who have made my Etsy experience so wonderful! Miss me!

Ooohhh... I'm in heaven...

As you know, I started a Food team on Etsy. Etsy teams are based on either location or interest. Etsy's Edible Arts Team is obviously based on interest!

The best part of the team is the trading we do with each other! Yeah for goodies! I traded recently with TheFetchingHound

She specializes in "Bitty Bites", little bites of cake mixed with frosting and dipped in chocolate. Now, I'm normally not a huge cake fan...but I am now! Just look at what I got!

Strawberry Cheesecake Swirl/ Itty Bitty Bites

These are truly little bites of heaven.
Not only am I not a cake fan...strawberry cake is not high on the list. But cheesecake? Yes! So I jumped and chose these. They are HEAVEN!! NIRVANA!! Absolutely WONDERFUL! So moist, they just melt in your mouth.

The other Bitty Bites I received were the Coconut Dream/Itty Bitty Bites

If you know me, you know I adore Coconut. Now, I WORSHIP coconut! These bites are perfection. Moist, coconutty - they taste like an exalted form of Almond Joy Candy bars.

Last night we ate our last bitty bite...moment of silence please...

You know what the best part of this whole experience was though? Working with the master chef herself! Christina is so nice and has an amazing sense of humor. I am so glad I have gotten to know her!

So, thanks to you, Christina, for making my mouth very, very happy!

Nice post!

Check out this wonderful post that a fellow EEAT team member wrote about me!

Well I have be partaking in my teams delicious items again.....hmmm I wonder if they are going to chip in for the weight loss plan I am going to have to get on...or maybe for my gym membership......

Well it has been a BUSY month for "partaking"..... my first indulgence was Double Dipped Sweets Sea Salted Caramel Apple.

This apple was delicious, it was the perfect balance of sweet, salty and tart. Her apples are HUGE...I think she may have some magic dust that she sprinkles on them to enlarge them...I know I have not seen apples that big here in AZ!! The apple was big enough for me to share (not willingly) with both of my kids. When you bite into the slice of apple you get the immediate crunch from the fresh crisp apple, then you taste the sweet Carmel and then your taste buds are assaulted by the salty goodness of the sea salt. The Carmel is also a perfect consistency, not to won't glue your teeth together like some other apples!!

Well I also got some little presents in that package from DDS (as I call her in chat) she sent me a sample of her Ginger bread popcorn.

All I can say is that popcorn puts the kettle corn that you get at the fair to shame!! It was scrumptious!!! Crunchy and sweet and like taking a big bite of a gingerbread man!!

The other little gift I got was her Coconut Haystack Bark, omg it was soooooooooooooo good!! Just the right balance between chocolaty goodness and coconut. Your tongue is coated by the delicious chocolate and then there is a slight chewy crunch from the coconut.

Let's just say I had to fight off the kids from each one of my "gifts". Hmmm I think I should of locked myself in the bedroom, I will have to do that next time I buy from DDS!!

Give your family a treat from DDS you won't be disappointed!! I also suggest the following apples also......heheheh I told you it was a busy month of "partaking"!!!

Apple Pie Caramel Apple and Fall Delight Caramel Apple
