I love doing fun little things at the place settings when the whole family gets together. Do you?
Here’s a fun project that I posted before…but some are worth highlighting again. Whether your hosting a book club meeting — or just looking for a fun place-setting for your Thanksgiving dining table, this is an easy project that will get lots of smiles.
It was from the grocery store chain FOOD LION. Gobbler Cookies
What you’ll need::
- Nutter Butter Cookies (this will be the body on your turkey)
- Fudge Stripe Cookies (this makes his pretty tail!)
- Small Pretzel Knots or Choc Covered Flipz (his feet!)
- Candy Corn (for the beak)
- Gummy Worms (for the gobbler!)
- Almond Slivers (for his spiky hair)
- Small Choc Chips (for the eyes)
- and white icing to hold it all together
Look at the picture and then get creative!!
Do you have a fun and creative project to share? Please share it here :)
During the months of May and June there’s something special going on.
You can use your love for reading…to help raise money for #diabetes research. It’s so easy. Thanks to Brenda Novak for stewarding this effort. We have three box sets and a cookbook for sale with all proceeds going directly to the Diabetes Research Institute.
Here’s how you can help!
Buy your copy. Gift a copy to someone else. Tell a friend!
SWEET TALK – a contemporary romance box set of 10 brand new stories, including SAND DOLLAR COVE from me. SWEET TALK also features a foreword by #1 NYT Bestselling Author Robyn Carr and a bonus story, the Brenda Novak classic, WHEN WE TOUCH, which kicks off her popular small-town contemporary Whiskey Creek series
If thrillers are more your style, grab SWEET DREAMS, but don’t plan to get any sleep! This box set features 13 bestselling thriller authors, and a foreword by Lee Child.
For those looking for very sexy stories, SWEET SEDUCTION.
And in both digital and paperback, the LOVE THAT! every occasion cookbook.

To celebrate the release of the third book in The Granny Series, IN HIGH COTTON, Kelsey Browning and I hit the road on the adventure of a lifetime. We logged over 3200 miles, visiting 16 states in two and a half weeks. If you missed all the posts and fun from the 16-state THE GRANNY SERIES Little Free Library Book Tour – don’t fret. You can catch up on some of the phone on the YouTube channel. See the fun stops and share in our excitement at each stop. The variety of these little free libraries is so neat, and I have to say Kelsey and I got pretty excited just seeing what each library had stocked before we shelved our books along with books by fellow authors.
CLICK HERE to visit my book tour playlist, or just look for THE GRANNY SERIES channel on YouTube.
If you’re curious to find little free libraries in your neck of the woods – or would like to put one in your yard and join in the fun – check out www.littlefreelibrary.org for details and tips.
The Granny Series is available for kindle, print and in large print, too.
Honey, these are not your momma’s grannies. These gals are more like Dirty Harry…only over 50, female and from the south!
Follow along on our adventure as Kelsey Browning and I hit the road…cruising through 16 states and stopping at libraries and little free library locations along the way. Not to mention some pretty cool and unusual landmarks. We’ll be podcasting, video casting and posting our adventures and our Flat Grannies too.
Here’s the link to the FB event page…or if you’re not a Facebooker than watch the website for updates too. www.TheGrannySeries.com
Have I told you about the new fundraising initiative I’m involved in this year?
I’ve contributed a BRAND NEW story called SAND DOLLAR COVE to SWEET TALK, a limited edition digital-only boxed set curated by Brenda Novak for the benefit of diabetes research. It includes nine other never-before-published novels and novellas and costs only $9.99 (that’s less than $1/story).
Who else is in the set? #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Sherryl Woods has contributed one of her popular Chesapeake Shores stories. Violet Duke, Melissa Foster, Steena Holmes, Gina L. Maxwell, Molly O’Keefe, Melody Anne, Rosalind James and Linda Lael Miller are all participating in this effort, too. And there’s a free bonus story from Brenda Novak. Pre-order this set now (wherever ebooks are sold) so that you receive it when it’s released on May 1st.
Once SWEET TALK goes on sale, it’ll only be available through June 30th. All proceeds will go to The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami (they are doing some amazing cure-focused work). Our goal is to raise $300,000 and, with your help, we should be able to do it. Please note that Brenda has also curated a thriller box set as well as a “hot” romance box set, so check those out, too. You can find more information at http://brendanovakforthecure.org.
