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!

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! :)
