There are few things in life that make me quite as happy as delicious sweet treats. (Although admittedly, fine letterpress, dogs and a fresh pack of Pilot G2-05 pens rank right up there.) The only person I know who can rival my love for sweets is my husband who is addicted to cookies specifically. In fact, we even gave cute boxes of homemade cookies away as favors at our wedding this past July. Accordingly, the holidays become a great time …

Speaking of great wedding favor ideas, I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these adorable s’mores kits on Twig & Thistle today. (Kathleen found them at Packaging Specialties in Seattle.) How adorable would it be to have a little s’mores kit at each place setting at a wedding or event or even arranged on a side table for guests to enjoy either at the party or after? Call me crazy, but I’m already dreaming of holiday parties and …

And, seriously, with a blog all about baking and photography, you can’t go wrong. The lovely Hannah of Honey & Jam is such a sweetheart and at only 19 years old her talent for capturing …
