Better late than never!!

So.... I am finally getting around to posting my Thanksgiving cookies.  Life has been a bit crazy this year....so I only have one design to share.  And a big shout out to this amazing baker for originally designing this turkey.  Read her blog....and you will no doubt leave with a smile!!!  She is both funny and creative!!!

She had to piece together these cookies using different cutters....but I was one lucky girl because just this year the amazing Truly Mad Plastics created a cutter designed to make this specific turkey in just one step!!!  Yayyyyy....made my life so much easier!!!!  And don't you just love being able to outline the cookies in just one color??? Oh the perks of a nice clean black outline!!



Hope you and yours had a Thanksgiving full of blessings...  The littles at my house are definitely ready for Mr. Claus to visit.  We have been singing Christmas music....watching The Polar Express....(too many times to count), and reading lots of magical Christmas stories.  Hope the spirit of Christmas has you smiling this season!

Falling Behind....

Wow...a sad, sad story that I have neglected this blog since last Thanksgiving.  I had all intentions of creating posts for each of the cookie orders I have worked on in the interim...but....life happens...and so rather than designating a post to each order...I will just combine the pictures in one post.  Soooo... here are some of the cookies I have had fun creating since last November....

And a special thanks to some of my favorite cookie bakers who came up with some of these designs....  http://www.sweetsugarbelle.com/?bloggerURL=/, http://lizybbakes.blogspot.com,  http://www.thebakedequation.com, and http://bakeat350.blogspot.com.







































I'll be back soon with some super scary Halloween treats:))

Giving Thanks

Once again... I am lagging behind on my posts.  Staying on top of these blog posts may just have to be one of my many goals in 2013....But for now...let's take a look back at our Thanksgiving.  I saw so many amazing cookie posts from all my cookie blogging friends...but we went with these simple turkey cookies for our Thanksgiving treats this year inspired by Hey Cookie.




Baking is really just a hobby for me....something I enjoy....but my real joy comes from these three little people in my life!  




Some days I feel like pulling my hair out...but I wouldn't trade it for the world.  And after the heartbreaking events in Connecticut this past weekend....I feel especially fortunate that He chose me to be the Mommy to these very special little angels in my life.

My heart is saddened for the children who lost their lives too early, and for the families whose lives will never be the same.  I hope that if any lesson can be learned from this horrific tragedy....it is one of hope....a hope that we can all be reminded just how delicate life is...and how we can't take a single moment in time for granted.

Halloween Fun

OH my goodness....where does the time go?  I am going to have to rewind yet again and go back to Halloween....so I can post my frightful Halloween cookies:)  Because my calendar just told me that Thanksgiving will be here in a little over ONE short week!!!


I got my inspiration from some of my favorite fellow cookiers....Linzy and Lilaloa just to name a few.


We only allow friendly monsters in our house.



Even Frankenstein can be a little bit cute..huh?



Hope Halloween was fun for all of you!  Better buckle up and get ready.... I have a feeling, with the holidays around the corner, the next few months might just be a blur!
