HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Hello everyone. Happy Valentine's Day to all that celebrate. I want to share some quick cards I made using the filigree hearts freebie that was issued by My Scrap Chick.
The first one, I added the 'flower pretties' freebie to dress it up a bit. A big thank you to my husband for the yummy chocolate covered strawberries :)
The second card has been paired up with 'the daisy garden' flower set. I just love these flowers. Another big thank you to my hubby for these amazing roses!!! I love you honey.

HAPPY ENGAGEMENT

Hello everyone. I am so behind in posts...
I am so happy to share that I have not one family member that has gotten engaged but TWO!!!
As part of the celebration for both couples I decided to do some cookies.
How adorable huh? I cut the diamond rings by hand. The roses were a cookie cutter. I clearly need more practice with my frosting.
I did the rings first and love how cute they came out.
By the time I got to the roses, my hand was killing me!!! I piped them fast and messy just to finish them up. They were still yummy regardless of how they looked :)
Congratulations to the happy couples.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. Since I am in line at a store about 200 deep on Black Friday, I thought I would share a cute foodie/craft from yesterday. I asked my mom what she wanted me to do for thanksgiving and she said ‘make cookies’. Ugh. So I took full advantage of the situation and made my first batch of sugar cookies with icing.

How adorable are these pumpkin pie cookies? I started out with a four inch circle to use as a template. Then I tried to cut eight uniformed ‘slices’.



I baked them and they came out in different sizes. I need to work on that.


Then I made up the icing which was the most difficult part. You need a firm batch for the cookie outline. Then you need a ‘not so’ firm icing batch to flood the space between the outlines. Then you need a batch of white (whipped cream), light brown (pie crust) and of course orange (for pumpkin filling).


They tasted like vanilla and not like pumpkin which I think the kids actually liked. And boy they were so good and soft. I can’t wait to try again with Christmas cookies. Stay tuned.

HAPPY 15TH BIRTHDAY ANDREW

Today is my nephew Andrew's 15th birthday. Like most teenagers, all he wants is money. I hate just putting money in a card even if the card is homemade. So this is what I did for him...
It is a tissue box filled with one dollar bills.
I opened up a brand new box on the side and removed the contents (with a helper).
I then taped all the money together. I rolled it all up and stuck it in the box. I taped the first bill to the lid of the box and hot glued the box closed. Then I decorated the box.
I love doing hand lettering, but obviously need more practice.
Another side...
This makes me laugh every time I look at it.
Haha, I think this came out so cute. I hope Andrew has the best birthday yet.
