Christmas is So Fun!

A friend ordered a ton of cookies to give as Christmas gifts. I was happy to make them for her yesterday. Plus I got to try out all my larger cutters (remember last week I did minis only) and see what I could do. I had a blast yesterday.....even though my poor foot was screaming by evening. : /

It was fun to try larger versions of the cookies I made last week. I went to town with my Christmas trees since I was decorating more than a dozen of them. I have FOUR versions. hee hee

Candy canes and gingers.......just the ordinary designs, but still fun.


These presents are not my best work.....but I think I know how to improve them for next time. I love the plaid wrapping paper. ;-)


Christmas lights......these are about five times bigger than the ones I made last week. Notice I only have six in the photo. I was able to get a whole string of minis in one photo last week. :-) The base of these were MUCH easier to do compared to those teeny tiny ones.....


I love how the blue striped scarves came out on these snowmen. :-)))))))


OK......here come the trees. They are all distinctively different. I don't know what came over me, but I couldn't quite trying new things.


Plaid, of course............you know the fad I'm in right now :-)


A more modern version. I LOVE how these turned out. I used a graphic I saw. Fun fun!


I've seen this string of lights version on CC and Flickr.


Patchwork trees.....I know you are SO surprised. :-)


Can you tell I love lots of colors? Look at this festive group of cookies. =)


Close up.......


I'll be decorating again Friday. I've got to get in as many decorating sessions as possible since Christmas will be here in just 17 days! Yikes......so many cookies, so little time. lol
