Hi Everyone! Today is my day to post over on the Want2Scrap blog. I would love it if you popped over and took a peek. I'd love it even more if you left me some ♥LOVE♥ while your are there. :) Here is a little teaser. ;)
With everything we have going on right now in the world, it is hard to be festive this Christmas.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends affected by the senseless school shootings in Connecticut.
I love to bake and have promised a couple of friends who have never tasted my baking before, some cookies, so I turned off the news for awhile and made some.
By the colors of my blog, I bet you can figure out my favorite color combination. :)
I used that theme for my Christmas cookies today. :)
These are still drying so I apologize for the plain way I photographed them. As soon as they dry, I will be sending them off in small batches to several crafty friends who have sent me thoughtful gifts throughout the year. Not a big or expensive gift, but I did put lots of time and ♥love♥ into them! :)
There are so many wonderful cookie blogs out there, that I won't boar you by typing up the recipe here. Instead, I will send you to a couple of my favorites. (where I got the recipes).
I love Sugarbelle's Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe, because it is tasty, and you don't have to chill it before rolling. This time I used coconut flavoring though, and it is yummy!
The frosting is from Lila Loa's blog. It is called "Royal Icing with Dried Eggwhites". Both cookiers have lots of other yummy recipes and tutorials on their blogs, so make sure and look around while you are there! :) ***Updated photo*** I took a couple more shots now that they are dry. Getting ready to package them up to ship. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Please join me in praying for peace and comfort for the families affected by last week's horrific events.
If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened onto my blog, head on back there and start at the beginning. You won't want to miss a thing!
I simply LOVE the colors in this months monthly Ribbon Club set!
My 50th birthday was a few weeks ago and my sweet friend Lisa Lara sent me a birthday goodie package that had some Basic Grey paper pads called Fiction and Fact, as well as some matching buttons. I have been wanting to play with them and the teal colors in this months set matched perfectly!
I have always admired Lisa's flair for beautiful CAS cards so I went with a simple design that shows off the pretty papers and ribbons.
