Safari Cookies

Safari-Cookies

I'm slowly starting to get back into the cookie game and enjoying it. I recently made these safari cookies for a friend whose co-worker and friend is expecting her first child. I made my own stencil for the giraffe print cookie. A stencil maker I'm not but it did the job. I got the palm tree and leaf cookie cutters from Truly Mad Plastics. It's so awesome that they're local. When I get a request for cookies and I don't have the cutters I need I can get them quickly from them. I have a couple of recipes that I want to test this weekend. If they're winners they'll make an … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 9-14-14

slice-of-life-sundays

Can you believe that we are midway through September? I can't believe it. We had our first cool front of the season this weekend. We had lows in the 70's and highs in the 80's. Not a huge cool down but we'll take it. I can't wait until I can wear my first sweater and boots. This time of year is my favorite. Fall also means that all my favorite shows are coming back. Revenge, Sons of Anarchy, Grey's Anatomy, The Walking Dead, Scandal, Dancing with the Stars, American Horror Story just to name a few. My DVR will be working overtime. Don't forget that the Party in Your PJ's Link Party is … [Continue reading...]

Cupcake Birthday Card

Cupcake-Birthday-Card-2

Do you ever want to pull your hair out sometimes?  I do but since mine is thinning it's not a wise idea. Lol! It's such a busy time at work and I feel like blogging has taken the back seat. I want to be creating things and sharing them with you but most days I'm just too exhausted. I can't wait for cold weather to get here so that things will slow down at work. I did get a chance to create this cupcake birthday card for a special girl. I was so happy to be able to use an Avery Elle stamp set that's been sitting in a drawer since I bought it. I colored the top of the cupcake and the … [Continue reading...]

Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies

Chocolate-Chip-M&M-Cookies-2

These chocolate chip M&M cookies have quickly become a favorite amongst family & friends. With pudding in the mix they are soft, chewy and delicious. I'm a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. I haven't met many that I don't like. To take a chocolate chip cookie up a notch I like to add in candy or nuts. In this case I added mini M&M candies. They not only add color but they add a great sweetness and crunch. These cookies are an updated version of the ones I shared last year. I wasn't too happy with how they looked and started changing how I went about making them. The … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 8-31-14

Happy Sunday! I can't believe today is the last day of August. Time is just flying by. This means we are one step closer to fall which is my favorite time of year. The colors, the weather, the decor and the foods. There isn't much I don't like about fall. I can't wait! We've been fortunate to not have as hot a summer as we normally do but it's still been hot. I'm looking forward to that first cold front and being able to wear sweaters and boots again. I'm also looking forward to all my favorite fall shows starting up again. Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, American Horror Story, Revenge to … [Continue reading...]

Cookie Bouquets

Cookie-Bouquets

It seems like it's been forever and a day since I've shared a project post with you. Work and life have been so crazy. This past week I completed an order for a friend for her daughter's sweet sixteen party. She asked if I could make cookie bouquets and she would provide me with the containers and floral accents. It's been forever since I've made bouquets but I was happy to do them. Each bouquet had different floral accents but all were glittery, colorful and fun. This was also my first time working with edible images (sorry I blurred the pics for their privacy). I was real nervous to … [Continue reading...]
