November Gift Certificate Sale and a pumpkin gem recipe

Happy November everyone. As I sit here writing and watching the falling leaves, and the aroma of pumpkin gems in the oven wafts through the kitchen into my office, I am reminded again of how truly blessed I am.  So, in honor of Thanksgiving, I’m offering two things today.

The first is the pumpkin gem recipe that is so simple and easy to make, the second is the gift certificates we are offering through the studio this month.

Pumpin Gems:  You will need 1 yellow cake mix, 1 can of pumpkin, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of oil, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.  That’s it!

Mix everything together and then pull out your mini muffin tin and spray lightly with canola oil.  Fill the cups up and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  If you wish, frost them with cream cheese frosting when they cool.

My family loves them plain and they do not last very long.  Perfect for a small snack or something to send to school with your kids.

thanksgiving-certificate-specialThis month, the studio is running a gift certificate sale. Purchase a certificate starting at $300 and receive an additional 50% in portrait credit.   Perfect to use for yourself or give as a gift.

To place your order, give Lisa a call at 309.269.5013.

dsc_4323All dressed up for Halloween!  Some of the cutest critters in the Quad Cities paid a visit to Freddy’s Fritters a couple of weeks ago to have their portraits made.

A vampire, a bumblebee. and  a lion were among those who came to the first annual Halloween Event.

Ever been to Freddy’s Fritters?  No?  Then you need to head to the Village of East Davenport.  When you first enter the building, you immediately inhale the delicious aroma of all the dog treats and goodies that have come out of the oven.


dsc_4396Decorated and on display, you will find a variety of treats for your beloved pet.   Have an upcoming birthday?  Freddy’s Fritters will bake and decorate a cake for your special family member.

Everyone deserves a day of pampering and Freddy’s Fritters will give your pup a “spaw” experience that will delight both you and your dog.

Once again, I thank Tami and Barb for hosting the Halloween event.  Freddy’s Fritters has been an enjoyable business to partner with on events and classes and I look forward to working with them in the future.










Our holiday event is Saturday, December 10th from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.  Write it on your calendar and join in on the fun.
