Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!

So the weather outside was frightful yesterday......not exactly......just snowy, windy, and bitter cold. I had already planned to decorate fun winter cookies, so the timing was perfect. As I was decorating these cookies, the snow was blowing up a frenzy outside. :-) It was a very wintry day. Thankfully, none of us had to get out in it, so we all stayed snuggly warm in our house.

I really wanted to make some unique cookies beyond the wintry type cookies I did for Christmas. Plus, I loved breaking out lots of cute colors beyond red, green, and white. ;-)

Oh.....and I got a new light for Christmas to help with my cookie photography, so it was fun to experiment with the photo shoot. =)

Mittens, sweaters, hats.......the color coordinating items were kind of an accident.


Ice skates.....I've been wanting to try these since I saw them last year.


A few cut outs....


I grew tired of doing a full snowman after doing so many at Christmas......so here's some cute snowmen heads. (By the way.....I LOVE snowmen. :-))


I love these snowmen with the ear muffs! I used a graphic to create these cuties. :-) The faces were inspired by Bea's super cute snowmen on Flickr. Did I mention that I love snowmen??


And of course, I had to do some quilted SNOW cookies. :-) I love doing this version of cookies so much!


I couldn't decide which assortment pic to choose for the blog, so I'm posting all of them. hee hee






I hope to do a few more winter cookies in the next week or two before I begin Valentines cookies (which some cookiers have already started!). We'll see how much time I can afford. Stay warm and dry..............

I love all of them Pam, but I have to say the snowmen with the earmuffs just made my heart smile! Keep warm and can't wait to see your valentine's collection!

These are all wonderful! Do you use alpha cutters for the SNOW word, or make a template? Your colors are great for winter!

Pam said...

Thanks so much to all of you.

Kylie....Australia....wow. Thank you for your kind words.

Susan.....your words made me smile. I love those ear muffs too. :-))) And I can't wait to see your valentine's cookies either.

Linda L.....I print out a big font of whatever word I want to use and then make a template. I don't have the alphas and numbers cutters....but what great idea. As if I need more cutters!!!

Hey Pam just wanted to let you know to come by my blog I have an award for you! Have a blessed day!

Lis said...

AWESOME is not a big enough word but your cookies are just beautiful. I would like to ask a question about something you said. How can the cookies stay fresh for valentines if people are already making them?

Pam said...

Thanks Lis!

For the Valentines cookies.....most of the ones I'm seeing are probably practice cookies, or cookies to show their customers their new designs. I doubt if most are actually going to sell or eat them for Valentines Day.

On that note, these cookies freeze well......plain or decorated. I've tried both and been happy with the outcome. You might want to read the right side bar FAQs for my tips on doing it.

Bea said...

Your COOKIES are awesome, Pam!! I am honored to be mentioned as inspiration for those AMAZING snowmen, thanks!... I love all of your Winter COOKIES...

Pam said...

Thanks Bea. You're cookies inspire me. :-)

Alli said...

Pam,
I'm in the UK and I discovered your blog today. I have spent all day and I mean ALL DAY reading your blog, combing it for information, sitting slack-jawed in awe, drooling over your cutters, you are a real inspiration to someone just starting out with cookie decorating!

You are my new hero!

Pam said...

Alli.....what a nice thing to say. Thank you. I'm not sure I'm worthy of hero status, but if I can be of help to you as a beginner in cookie decorator, I'm honored to help. :-)

Pam said...

Thanks Bea. You're cookies inspire me. :-)
