Am I CRAZIE or What?

OK......so I got a little obsessed this week. I decided I wanted to make Valentine cookies for several groups of people....so instead of two batches of cookies (around 40+) I made four batches (80+). So I lay them all out on Monday at 10 AM and start working.....and before I know it is 7 PM and I'm only half way through!!!! I wanted to make some fun, different designs and they took lots of time.

SO.....I put the rest away and got them out on Tuesday to finish. After a few more hours I finally got them done!!! What was I thinking??!!

Well I ended up with some designs I love, but my hand is still screaming at me for the marathon I was on. :-)

Here's my favorite cookie out of all 80+ cookies. This patchwork idea just came to mind on Sunday night and I could hardly wait to try it out on Monday. :-)))))))


Here's the large patchwork hearts and then the next picture is of the smaller ones.






I repeated this "sweater design" (note to Pam H.....I was listening) from last time.....I really like how these turn out.


Here's just a basic one with three colors....and I love this fuscia color.
Here's a bunch of random stitched hearts.
And here's all my smaller hearts. I love that little folk heart cutter. :-)


We did our packing party tonight for Treat the Troops. What joy there is in sending our precious soldiers in Iraq some home baked and lovingly decorated cookies. :-)))))))
I had hoped to make some Valentine cookie bouquets for the family tomorrow....but after analyzing the last few days....I decided I've done enough this week and I need to let these cookies be it for the holiday. (Why does Valentines Day have to come so fast. ;-))
Happy Valentines Day to you all! Be sure to let your loved ones know how much you love and appreciate them.

It is a joy to think about the journey I've been on with my cookie decorating. This blog will be 5 years old next month. Wow. Who would have thought?!
