Christmas 2017: PYO Cookie Gift Boxes

This has become an annual "thing" for all of the tiny humans in my life — and even though they are SO SIMPLE, these are easily my favorite cookies every time. I bought some new stencils this year, AND, instead of the messy paint palettes I usually make myself, now you can BUY them!!! They look so clean and professional.

I am strongly considering selling gift boxes of these for various occasions. But that is an endeavor for another day....in 2018.

UPDATE - the new paint palettes work great!

Christmas 2017: the Christmas cactus

The cutter came from Sweet Design Shoppe here.

Full disclosure...I ended up not loving these like I had hoped, and I am already brainstorming ideas to improve them for next time.

Christmas 2017: trees

I sure hope I am not the only one failing to multitask in preparing for Christmas this year. At some point I realized everything was packaged and I had not taken pictures (packaging = glare). As an added bonus, when you don't have a fancy photo set-up, late nights and bad weather mean you cannot get good lighting for pictures.

All of this to say, the trees were some of my favorites this year, and I have a very limited number pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!! 

This year I did a turkey cookie platter inspired by Jill at Funky Cookie Studio (see the platter here). She is far more talented, and has an airbrush, so I present to you......the amateur version:


Chevron Patterned Monogram Birthday

These may be the first cookies made and documented in 2017 .... *gasp* ... sadly, I feel like they are appearing much darker here than they are in real life — but, at least you get the idea.


Fall Cookie Party

It has been a while since I have actually made any cookies, but in looking through old photos, I found several that never got posted, so I thought I would do that now — if for no other reason than to prove this blog is not totally dormant....

Almost one year ago today, I was inspired by LilaLoa's Easy Fall Bouquet, and when I shared the picture below, several others were as well. So, we planned a cookie party. You can also watch LilaLoa's tutorial on this cookie set here: https://youtu.be/tKqA3b7pNy4.

Here are a few photos from our cookie party. Too many cookies had been eaten when I realized I came up short on finished cookie photos...so sadly we do not have much evidence that this was a success.
