Martha by Mail Noah's Ark Animal Cookies

Hi Again!

Can't believe I finished another set of cookies today!
These pretties are being sent to Libby, the sweet lady who blessed me with an amazing RAK last week. She sent me set #1 of the vintage Martha By Mail - Noah's Ark cookie cutters! 
These cookies were done with a few of the animals from that set.

Remember, you can click on the photos for a closer look. ;)

This is what the original advertising and packaging cookies looked like.
I think I like mine better. Sorry Martha Stewart! :)

Here is a link to a page that shares a bit about the entire set. You will see why it was such an awesome RAK! :)

Here is a photo for pinning to Pinterest. Hint hint hint! ;)

Thanks so much fro dropping by again today!
Please share and pin. :)

Weathered Wood Duck Decoy Cookies

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
We sure did, but now I am ready to move on. I decided to do some "just because" cookies today. Mostly because I found some darling new cookie cutters at a local shop and just couldn't wait to try them out. 
I'm not sure, but I might have just created a new cookie technique. :)

I based the cookies with cream and tan colored royal frosting the night before so it would be completely dry this morning. Then I used a small X-acto knife to score "weathered wood" lines into the frosting.

 I then applied powdered and liquid food coloring with a brush, to get that antiqued look.

I really like how they turned out! I think hubby will feel special eating these.
He usually gets the flops. Thought I should do something special just for him. :)

If you love them, please share and pin! :)

Winter Cookies!

Hi Everyone!

Tis the season for baking and boy have I been! 
I need to share several different batches that I have created lately so I will pop on today with the first of many.
These are my winter themed cookies. I used my new airbrush that Santa gave me (a wee bit early) to create them. I really love it and know I will love it even more after I learn how to use it a little better. 
Practice makes perfect right? :)

Remember, you can click on the photos for a closer look. :)

After hubby saw them, he requested that I make more so he could take some to his guys at work the next morning. Had to get up at 4:00 AM today to draw the faces on, but I got them done in time!

Hope they like them! :)

I would love love love it if you shared and PINned! :)

My Very First Gingerbread House! :)

Hi Everyone! 

I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house, but for whatever reason, never had....until now. I didn't want to go out and buy lots of candies to decorate it because I would have just ended up eating most of them, so it is sparsely decorated with just royal frosting, but I think I like the simplicity. 

I drew out templates for the birdhouse and free-hand cut the birds and trees.

I did most of the detail before I assembled the pieces.

And a final set of photos for pinning. :)

If you have never made one, you should give it a try.
I'm now hooked! :)

Scentsy!!! Yummo! :)

Hi Everyone!

I have been doing something that I have yet to post about.
I became a Scentsy consultant! :)

I have been having sooo much fun!

 I thought I would take a quick minute to tell you why I became a Scentsy consultant.
   I went to my first Scentsy party about 10 years ago when they first started up and instantly fell in love!
   They had so many amazing scents to choose from. I had always used candles up until I discovered Scentsy and their beautiful warmers. I loved how candles smell, but had issues with soot, and worried about our pets and children getting burned. Not to mention the fire hazard. Once I found Scentsy, I became a wick-less girl and never looked back! They have a huge and ever evolving assortment of yummy scents to choose from, and my house always smells awesome...without the worry of having flames burning  :)

   I recently decided that I wanted to start a little side business that would get me out and around people more. Of course Scentsy came to mind right off! A product I have already loved for years. A fun way to meet new people and "party" with old friends. And I can do it when it works for my family's schedule.

  Scentsy's products have changed so much the last few years. Yes they still have a lot of the same style of  wonderful warmers with some variations, but they have also added gorgeous Lampshade, Silhouette, and Element warmers. There are lots of new scrumptious scents as well.
They also have a new line of Layers. Both for laundry and skincare!
Here are a few of my favorite new seasonal warmers.

I love it because it is something fun I can do to earn some extra money and still have lots of time for crafting! You can earn as much or as little as you would like, depending on the amount of time you want to put into it. The best thing is, you are your own boss. It is your business, so YOU decide when you can and can't work. Schedule parties around your family time. 
Awesome right?
If you think this might be for you too, I would love to have you on my team!
Simply CLICK HERE for more information.
If you get your kit and decide you don't want to sell after all, simply keep your kit and use it for yourself or for gifts. BTW...the kit has a value of waaaay more than the $99.00 cost.
I don't see why you wouldn't want to keep selling it though. Scentsy sells it's self. People get excited to see me walking in with new catalogs! Everybody loves Scentsy and this is the time of year that it goes like hotcakes! Scentsy makes awesome Christmas gifts!

If you would like to purchase some Scentsy for yourself, or to get a jump on Christmas gifts, PLEASE CLICK HERE to get started. If you find something you like, when prompted to pick a party, please click on "Internet friends please click here..." so it will be added to my next party. Your order will ship directly to you! Now that is cool! :)
Thanks in advance for your orders! :)

I had better get off for now. headed to my craft room where I have Central Park Pralines warming in my crafty room Scentsy warmer. Sure makes my "me" time in my craft room even that much more enjoyable! :)
