Personal Side

Well....Christmas baking has certainly arrived at our home.
I did several different sets of Christmas cookies this week.
 
Believe it or not, I think I'm done baking the season's cookies for the blog.
That's good.....because there's lots happening in the next two months to keep me away from my oven.
Now if I can just get lots of photos edited and blog work done.....I'm set. 
Haha!

If that was all it took......it would be a breeze.
No, there's so much beyond that, but it will give me peace of mind to have blog stuff completed.

October is almost over. 
That's truly amazing.
Time waits for no one......for sure!

When I get back from Italy......it will be Thanksgiving and then.....Christmas.
I'm trying to anticipate things ahead of time, but it is very, very challenging.
I don't know that I will have time to get all my Christmas decorations up.
That makes me a bit sad.....but I'll do my best to make something work......
without going CRAZIE. :)

I hope you are enjoying the fall.
It is so beautiful outside.
And the weather is perfect here in Missouri.

Thanks for sticking with me. :)

Instagram photos for this week:


Yes.....this happened this week.


Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.....


Have a Pumpkin-kind-of-Sunday!!


Some golden elegant pumpkin cookies.....


Peppermint.....anyone?


Working on Christmas cookies has a way of brightening the mood in an extraordinary way. ��
(And yes, I know it's too early to be thinking Christmas,
but events in the next two months necessitated prep work in October.)


Birthday Cookies from last year.....
I hope you have a sweet day.

2014 Pumpkin Cookie Collection





I've had a blast this fall going to town with my new
CookieCrazie pumpkin cutters and CreativeCookier's Big Bodacious Alphabet cutters.

Here's some pumpkins using molds with CookieCrazie Edible Glaze Molding Clay.

Pear Cookie (Tutorial)






Here's another new cutter from CookieCrazie Custom Cutters........a pear.


For a classic pear look, the 10-second glaze needs to be a nice apple-y green.
 Outline and flood the pear cookie.


If a more 3D pear is desired,
outline and flood the base of the pair a second time after it has dried 30 min.
You can also add a leaf in a darker green color. 
(see photos below)


And if you're extreme like me, you might try to add a third base layer......
but it is not recommended. ;)


Because of my mistake,
I waited a couple of hours before adding a FOURTH layer to cover the ugly third layer. haha

Once the leaf has dried about 2 hours,
use a cake tester and/or scribe to add some veins.


Also, add a brown stem.


After the pear has dried overnight,
use a mixture of electric green, chocolate brown, and bright white color gels to paint on 
some shadow lines and random splotches.
