Slaying Me.

Well, in case you are curious, all of our CrateJoy shipping boxes of Jelly Jar pies are in transit tonight to destinations all over the United States.  And almost all of them include a Sour Cream Raisin jar, which is only a marginal improvement on an Old Fashioned...

All You Need…

Today I participated in something I have publicly stated I would never actually do…MAKE A VISION BOARD.  In my defense, my super crafty 12 year old daughter lured me in with her stacks of glossy magazines, piles of washi tape, and a return promise of letting me...

Because We Love You.

As we anticipated, we were steadily busy all day today with early Valentine’s Day purchases of pie (and even a few pie servers and tea towels, holla).  And thankfully, it finally feels like this holiday helps us pull a bit away from the long and slow, dreary...

We Improvised.

This morning we finally unpacked our tea towels and we are happy to report that they were TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT. That said, the display unit we ordered for them is on backorder with an unknown shipping date…so we just improvised.  (Because goodness knows that...

You’ve Got Me.

Without any question, I’ve been working IN the business of PJP more lately than I’ve come close to working ON the business.  (Which is really just a much nicer way to say that I’ve been baking and doing dishes more than I’ve been working on any...

ME.

Well, today was as about as interesting as you might guess for a cold and 50% chance of snow sort of Tuesday.  Which is to say it wasn’t really interesting at all.  We did roll out a new electronic rewards system over the weekend and it replaces our current...

Our Villagers.

You might think that after working long hours together in a small space, we might sort of get tired of each other at PJP.  SPOILER ALERT:  WE DON’T.  And so, most of Team PJP came over to my house yesterday afternoon for a Super Bowl party and we had the best...

Highlight Of My Day.

There’s almost ALWAYS something interesting happening at PJP and the last 48 hours has not disappointed.  Let’s discuss. Jeanne FaceTimed me today from JoAnn’s, which is worth noting because it was her first self-initiated FaceTime call EVER....

Paradise In A Pan

If you are relatively new around here, you might not even know that PJP was A THING in the 1990s (just like jelly shoes, choker necklaces, and turtleneck sweaters from Casual Corner).  The original version was owned by Jeanne and her best friend, Peggy.  (Get it?...

Bye Felicia

Well, here we are on the final Monday of January…which is nice because this is actually the FIFTH Monday of the month.  So really, it feels like January has taken a sweet forever and by now, it feels like it could by July 2023.  But it is still just January....

XOXO, PJP.

Perhaps only two or three times a year, I find myself alone at PJP Buttonwood while we are open…but our baking for the day is finished.  And basically, it is THE BEST when it happens.  The only thing I can really compare it to is when you get to be in your house...
