I decorated my little heart out yesterday. I had big, big plans.....but they petered out when I start coming down with a cold. :-( I kept adding to the stack of cookies I wasn't going to decorate. lol By the time I cleaned up the mess......I was crawling to bed. Then I had to get up at 4 AM and go to work this morning. Ugh.
Sickness or no......I still had fun decorating. I repeated some of my favs from last time, but added some new ones too.
I bought some disco dust from Country Kitchen SweetArt and boy was it fun to use! It's kind of pricey......and you gotta be careful since "glitter" goes everywhere when you open it.....but oh how cool the effects are. It was hard to capture the effects in a photo.....but I think this one does it best.
Larger stockings.......I still love putting white sanding sugar on the top. :-) In hindsight.....I like those little white stitches on the bottom left one....wish I'd added it to all the others......
I went out on a limb and tried something different with one of the trees. My daughter said I was "getting all modern" on her. :-) (She loves modern decor......I don't. lol)
Plaid trees with a black outline.....I like em! ;-)
I was anxious to use the huge Christmas tree cutter I must have purchased after Christmas last year. I love the limbs on this one. I tried out some of the same designs as last time. I love Christmas trees! (funny......I have six artificial trees decorated throughout my house, so I guess I'm tree crazie too)
My new JOY cutter from Karen's Cookies. It's a little smaller than I would have liked, but it is still cute. :-)
Larger mittens.....yay! I love these so much. :-))))))))
And here's a whole family of snowmen. I had fun doing all the "Christmas" scarves.
I hope to have another big cookie session on Wednesday. Hopefully this cold moves swiftly out of my body and our house in the next few days. :-)
