Inspiration Challenge: Paris {Mendiants}

Mendiants-3

Welcome to another Inspiration Challenge. This month’s theme is Paris. Boy o’ boy did I have a time with this one. Have you ever felt like you’ve lost your creative mojo? Well that’s totally me right now. I have so many ideas that flow through my brain on a daily basis but I can’t seem […]

Inspiration Challenge: Down the Rabbit Hole

Mad-Hatter-Cookies-2

This month’s challenge was a bit of a doozie for me. When I first heard the theme I had a total block. Then my mind starting thinking about Easter. I had plans to make a cake or cupcake that literally represented a rabbit going down a hole. As time was getting closer to have my […]

Inspiration Challenge: The Sky {Paper Flowers}

paper-flowers2

I know what y’all are thinking. What on Earth is “The Sky” challenge? Believe me I had a hard time coming up with a plan for this one. The only thing that kept coming to mind is rainbows. Rainbows are in the sky and with St. Patrick’s Day approaching they would be perfect. So I […]

Inspiration Challenge: Love

love-cookies

It’s challenge time again. This month we’re celebrating all things love. I haven’t decorated cookies since December so I thought it was time I brushed off the cobwebs and got back to it. I wanted to do a set that combined different techniques and textures.  From hand painting to airbrushing I’m really pleased with how […]

Inspiration Challenge: Warm & Fuzzy {Hot Chocolate for Two}

Hot-Chocolate-for-Two-3

It’s time for January’s inspiration challenge. This month’s theme is warm & fuzzy. All kinds of ideas ran through my head for this challenge. Everything from sewing projects to a cake. In the end I decided to focus on the feeling of warm & fuzzy rather than a literal interpretation. Hot chocolate always gives me […]

Inspiration Challenge: Naughty & Nice

It’s time for month three of the Inspiration Challenges. This month’s theme is Naughty & Nice. When I came up with this theme I immediately had the idea to do lingerie. I have so many cookie cutters that have never seen the light of day and one of those cutters is a corset cutter. I […]

Inspiration Challenges: A Look Back

I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the year of challenges that Stephanie from Ellie’s Bites Decorated Cookies and I did. I got a little emotional looking at all the pictures.

Inspiration Challenge: May {Cookies You Fear}

The final month of the inspiration challenges is here. I can’t believe that a year has come and gone. When Stephanie first approached me about doing these challenges I was unsure about doing them but I’m so glad that I did. As the world of cookie decorating has grown it has become harder and harder […]
