Morel Mushroom Cookies (Yes...You Read It Right!) ;)

Hi Everyone!
I posted a photo of some Morel mushroom cookies that I made and my niece just let me know they had gone viral! There are lots of questions about how I made them, and for the recipe, so I thought the best way to share would be here on my blog, so I can just give a link to all the info. 
Morel season is one of my family's favorite times of the year. My brother Michael Wright's birthday just happens to fall during that season. This year the weather has made it come a little later than normal, so I made him a bag of morels (and a cookie card) from sugar and flour. 
wink emoticon
This is the photo that started the commotion.

For those that don't know what Morels are, here is a photo. They are only out a few weeks a year and that is only if all weather conditions are right. They sell for crazy amounts of money and people go crazy during hunting season. 

I think I am the first ever to do Morel cookies, as far as I can tell, so there are no cookie cutters out there. I simply rolled out the dough and free-handed the mushroom shapes.
Note the Dough-Easy  rolling mat that I used. AMAZING!
I also did a coordinating cookie card with mushrooms.
This is what the final gift looked like. Of course all of them didn't fit so hubby and I HAD to eat the rest! :)
Want my cookie recipe?
Spiced Orange Sugar Cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon orange extract
the zest from one orange
3/4 tsp cardamom
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
4 cups flour



 Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, vanilla, orange extract, orange zest and cardamom. Mix well. Add baking powder and salt and mix to incorperate.  Add flour 1 cup at a time. Chill in refrigerator for at least an hour. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick. Bake at 375 F for 5-6 minutes, or until just barely starting to color on the edges. 
I used Royal frosting to decorate mine, but you can sprinkle with sugar before baking or use  Butter-cream frosting if you would prefer. 

I am a Jamberry Nails consultant and all of this hubbub has me wanting to design some morel nail wraps!
Like  my blog and follow, and I will let you know when I have and will share a photo and explain how you can get your mushroom nail wraps!

Hi Everyone!
The recent earthquake in Nepal killed over 7,000 people injured 10's of thousands and left the majority of that country homeless and broken. Jamberry Nails wants to do it's part to support this tragedy. They quickly put a plan in action and created the Nepal Relief nail wrap. It is 
absolutely beautiful, and and 100% of the net proceeds will go to UNICEF for earthquake relief in Nepal. I will also be donating 100% of my personal commission from sales of the Nepal Relief wraps. It is a limited edition wrap and will only be available through May 8th. DON'T WAIT! 

http://www.artsyfartsynails.jamberrynails.net/product/nepal-relief#.VUquPiHBzRZ

It does qualify for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free deal too, so remember to pick a fourth, if you buy 3. 
Here are some other wraps that would go well with the Nepal Relief wraps.

Beautiful Layered Nail Designs With Jamberry Nails!


Hi Everyone!

I thought I would do a quick post today sharing the new way I have started doing my nails.
Layered wraps! Love it!
As you probably know, I am a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant. One of the many fun things about that, is I have a never ending supply of pretty nail wraps! I love mixing and matching them up, and Jamberry has just released a ton of new designs in their Spring & Summer catalog, including lots of new clear ones.
This is the manicure I did today on my left hand (my right is different and I will share it later).
To get this look, I used these 3 sets of wraps:
Fountain Of Youth (thumb and ring fingers)
Splish Splash (pointer and middle fingers)
Lost Ruins (thumb and middle fingers)
As well as Pacific Lacquer on my pinky.


This is the mani I just took off after 2 weeks. It was still pretty, but I was ready to try something new. So MANI Jamberry wraps... so little time. :)
This mani was created with Destiny and Gold Floral Wraps with Amazon Lacquer.


If you like either of these looks, simply click the links in the descriptions and shop my website. 

Remember, the wraps are always Buy3Get1FREE!


If I can help you in any way, please leave a comment and I will gladly answer any questions. 


By the way, I am having an Open House this weekend in my Jamberry team's Facebook group. If you would like to visit our group for a few days, to see if getting paid to have pretty nails might be for you too, please visit my Jamberry Business page, "LIKE" it and pop me a PM. I'll invite you to our fun group, and you can be our guest for the Open House.
We would love to see you there!

Halloween Nail Art Made Easy...and Affordable!


Hi Friends!
If you haven't heard, I now sell Jamberry Nails!
I am so excited for the amazing opportunity.
I have only been with them for 6 months and already have a team of 102 ladies under me!
Why is my team growing so quickly you ask?
Because everyone who tries Jamberry Nails, falls in love. I myself just signed up for the discount but from week one started making a very nice chunk of money and lots of new friends. It has been a blessing and has helped my family so much because of some recent job changes my dear hubby has gone through.

So thankful that I found Jamberry and thankful to have a job I love that I can work on MY schedule! 

OK enough of my gushing over Jamberry (I can't help myself)  On to the adorable Halloween nail wraps! Take a look at these cuties!
Click on any of the photos to go to my shop and directly to the Fashionably Festive category where you will find all of these wraps as well as other Fall , Winter, and holiday wraps.
Don't forget about our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE deal! :)













http://www.artsyfartsynails.jamberrynails.net/category/fashionably-festive

Just in case you have never heard of Jamberry Nails, they aren't fake nails. They are a very thin self-adhesive vinyl nail wrap that takes the place of polish. You can do stunning manis and pedis in your own home at a fraction of the cost that it would cost in a salon. 


Other pluses are ZERO dry time, and they last 2 weeks on your fingers and 6 weeks on your toes! Each sheet is only $15 and will do 2-3 manicures and 3-4 pedicures! 
That would cost hundreds in most salons!

To find out more about the Jamberry opportunity, click HERE.

The consultant kit is an awesome value even if you just sign up for the discount and kit product!
You get everything you see and more, including 3 more full sets of wraps that you get to choose!
As always, feel free to ask questions about the product or the Jamberry opportunity!
