  1. Morning Jenny.....I saw you got a mention in the April edition of Get Creative magazine. It's an article on handmade dolls and toys, they described your dolls as "artful gifts for children" nice is that? And a lovely photo of one of your pretty 'girls' in a red spotty dress.

    Nice one !

  2. Yum! Those sound so good, Jenny. I just might have to make some very soon.

  3.

  4. Hi Nanette. I had forgotten about the Get Creative magazine. They contacted me at the start of the year. I didn't see the article and I guess the magazine has disappeared now. I'll have to check out Spotlight next time I go in. They did say they would send me a copy, I should follow up on that too.
    Thanks for letting me know and yes, " artful gifts for children" is pretty nice isn't it.

  5. Hi Linda, I'm glad you have success with the recipes and that you get compliments.

  6. Hi G, the cupcakes are very nice but make sure you don't over cook them as they can get a little crusty if you do.

  7. Hi Jenny, they look so good! I made your meatball soup last week and it was a hit.

  8. we made these this afternoon, thanks for the recipe Jenny! On closer inspection I realised the ingredients were exactly the same as a butter cake from a AWW cook book that I have made for years! Its great with the butter cream icing, I love butter:)


Thanks so much for taking the time to chat. I don't always have time to reply but I do read every message you leave.
