"This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”'
Luke 2:12-14

Christmas is Upon Us.....Cookies Are Complete

I finished my final Christmas cookies for the season. Sigh.....It's was a relief. I nearly burned myself out last week......but doing these cookies made me realize that it will always be something I love to do. Especially when I can do whatever designs I want. :)

And I'm so happy with how these latest ones came out. I'd been wanting to do some special Christmas designs for weeks now.....and didn't think I'd have time. But I pushed myself on Tuesday.......and here are some of them.

I've done Christmas bulbs before.....but am always trying to improve.


Here's my heavily repeated designs this season.....with minis to accent. ;)

I wanted to do a Christmas word art cookie.....similar to the one I did for Thanksgiving. Yeah....can check that one off my list.

And one of my favorite new ones.....

I pray we keep ever before our eyes the real reason for Christmas. The greatest gift of all! Immanuel.....God WITH us.

Only a couple more days. I hope you are enjoying the time and not too stressed. 

Tonight we celebrate Christmas Eve. I can already feel the anticipation in the house! Even though all my kids are grown.....everyone becomes a child at this time of year. :)

Christmas Cookies Galore......

Last week was my marathon week......but I did it! I had small goals all throughout the week, and as long as I kept to them, I was on track.

Here's some of the Christmas cookies I did last week......





We are celebrating Christmas early (Thursday evening and Friday morning) since we have to go to my in-laws for Christmas. So it is only ONE day away for me. Lots to cook, bake, wrap, & clean between now and tomorrow. :)

Savor every moment. It's such a special time.....and who knows what things will be like in 2012.
I pray you have many Christmas blessings.......

Heat Gun....Part 2.....And Christmas Cookies!

I just realized I had taken some additional cookie photos specifically to share about details on the heat gun....thus Part 2.

One thing I learned pretty quickly this last week about the heat gun.....you need to dry the cookie right after adding the icing.......BUT.....don't move the heat gun in sweeping motion too quickly over the cookie. The wet icing can be moved in waves, and it is NOT pretty.

Gasp......gingerbread men with wrinkles. :(


 Here's a pic to show you how you can do the same to all cookies and still a get a different result. I dried all of these holly berries equally. Most had no craters, but a few did. Go figure!

Here's one of the main reasons I love the heat gun......those snowmen squares would have been full of craters had I no dried them with the gun.


_____________________________________________
One of my dream cookie orders this month......make a bunch of quilted squares heavy in red. Yippee......I equated that to a patchwork Christmas quilt!!!

I loved how those little squares looked in the box all piled together. :)

And finally......one of my most favorite Christmas tree cutters.....from Ecrandal HERE.  These cookies are over 7" tall. (Oh....and note to self......extra large cookies take lots of extra large time to decorate. ha ha)

I'm sure you all are busy busy busy getting ready for Christmas. Me too. I have a pile of cookies to decorate today.....and then I will done decorating for 2011. I've decided to make next week completely free of cookie decorating. I have to admit, these last few weeks have taken their toll. I'm a bit burned out. But next week is my birthday week.....so I plan to do lots of other fun things to rejuvenate and get ready for 2012. :)

Happy baking, preparing, and planning for such a wonderful time of year.....
