Black Gift Box

My Holiday Boxes are Ready to Ship!

They are sleek, and as my husband put it – “sexy”! This box is full of treats and the perfect gift for a small family, group, or office of people. It’s also great for someone who simply loves well-made treats in sleek packaging. All the info you need is on the site. These boxes will ship through mid January. Why? Because people are still shopping for Christmas gifts a couple of weeks after Christmas. Yep. it happens. Even more good […]

The Taylors

Aaaahhhhh – these two. I had quite a time figuring out where to begin the story of Anna & Wilson’s photos here on the blog. Heidi and her fellow photographer @ Our Labor of Love did a wonderful job of chronicling the day. As hectic as weddings can be, and as often as they can become quite the rat race to “get to the altar on time”, it appears Anna & Wilson’s day was beautifully breezy. There’s lots of understated, […]

Checking In!

Dear Sift! Followers, You may have noticed some rather subdued activity from me lately. This too shall pass. (o: I’ve been at work with several things – some dessert, and some not-so-dessert. Nevertheless, I will return with the deets on all of it. I am, however, going to hip you to one of these things right now. Back in January, I began volunteering my time at a local homeless shelter – The Atlanta Mission – something I have been trying […]

Hi Guys!

Long time no talk, eh? There’s lots to show and tell, but in due time. For now, I’ve got a request. This is one you’ve heard before, but I hope you’re happy to hear of it again. The Caramel Taste Test – it’s back on, and I’m super excited! As many of you know, Caramel is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world next to Caramel (no that isn’t a typo including the capital C), wrinkly bulldog puppies, high heels/stilettos, Christmas time, coffee with lotsa cream, cheese fries, and beautiful kitchens. So this is likely to be my favorite taste test yet. In any case, I would like to get as many tasters as possible and location is not a factor. It’s nationwide, friends. We already have tasters from Washington state! I love that… So come one, come all! I’ve got quite a few flavors up my sleeve plus a surprise or two which is really just my way of saying thank you for holding tight during such a busy time for Sift!. I requested testers last summer, and ended up having to reschedule the tasting. For all those that hung in there, I really appreciate it. For all of the newbies, I welcome you with open arms.

Anyhoo, here’s the how: (But first, here’s an update on two very important factors based on questions we’re receiving: 1. The taste test is nationwide. Join us – wherever you might be! (o; 2. If you’re familiar with me and/or my taste tests, flavors and such are kept secret until you unveil what’s in your package. It’s fun.) Okay now —–>To reserve your spot in the Caramel Line, simply send a quick email (or fill out the form below) to info@siftatlanta.com that says something to the effect of “Tristen, send me that caramel.” For faster service (if emailing), please provide your full name, a contact phone number, and the address to where you want your caramels to be mailed. If there is a better time to reach you, please indicate that in your email. We will contact everyone, but please understand that spots are reserved on a first come – first served basis. You will be contacted as soon as possible to reserve your spot in the Caramel line at which time we will process payment of 9.50 + shipping (varies depending upon where you are in the US). Spots are limited, so the quicker you choose to join us the better. So far, roughly 40% of the spots are reserved. Reserve your spot!

I look forward to Caramel-izing everyone! Until then…

Serious inquiries only, please. If you have questions, please direct them to info@siftatlanta.com before filling out the form below. Thank you for your cooperation.

Taste Test on Wheels – Holiday Edition!

Photos by the Lovely Janet Howard of Janet Howard Studios! I want to show you pictures of Janet at work, but I’m going to keep behind the scenes stuff in it’s place. She goes above and beyond to get these perfect shots. I now know a true photographer by their ability to twist, contort, and hang upside down completely suspended in mid-air. Janet’s a photographer fairy. I have to say that other than visiting Chicago during the holiday season, San […]

Sift!’s Style Me Pretty Georgia Post!

Today, I put contact lenses on for the first time.  I’m a big silly baby when it comes to certain things. When I was forced to put the lens on my naked eyeball all by myself, you would have sworn I was manually removing my old eyeballs and replacing them with new ones. I screamed…a little. I gasped. It was horrific and all of the poor patients waiting to get lenses for the first time new it. Sorry, Dr. Hung! […]
