I’m supposed to be going speed dating Thursday night. Supposed to be. The way things work out in my life, it’ll get cancelled at the last minute. So much for positive thinking, hunh?
Despite my negativity, I’m actually looking forward to the opportunity to meet new people. You never know, I might be able to meet a man and get some new customers out of the deal. Sneak some business cards on the low. Speed dating has nothing to do with cookies, but I always try to find a way to make pleasure and business connect. If I can’t get a date out of the deal, I might as well make some money, right?
Punk Rock Flea Market is on Saturday. I have not started baking yet. I still don’t know what I’m making. I know chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin are gonna make an appearance, but what else? Krispie rice treats? Cupcakes? Brownies? Also, how much do I make? I want to make enough items to last through the event, but not so much that I have to bring stuff back home with me.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Drunken Oatmeal Raisin
Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip
Brownies (plain and nut)
Walking on Sunshine Cup Cakes (?)
Coco Caramel Cup Cakes(?)
Krispie Rice Treats
That’s over 100 items. That’s a lot! I don’t think I’m making all of those, but it gives me something to work with.
What else is going on with me:
*I’m making cookies for Handmade Philly’s Art Beat Live event on August 15. Art Beat Live is an event where where people can come and work on their unfinished art projects with others. Think of it as study hall, but for artists and crafters. There’s also going to be music and workshops. I’m not really sure what I’ll do that day. Probably write in my journal or work on my business plan. The free workshop sounds cool, so I think I’ll check that out while I’m there.
* I was supposed to do cookies for a wedding, but that fell through. I won’t go into details, but let’s just say things didn’t work out.
*I’m doing a cookie tray here and there for my job. I appreciate them throwing some business my way, it means a lot.
*’Working on putting together my own montly event. The event would be in a different location each month and would raise money for a local or national charity/organization. I’m still working on the name, but I want the first event to be in September after school has started.
That is pretty much it for me.
