Personal Side


This week was filled with Thanksgiving cookies.
So fun!

Thankfully I got the cookies done by Wednesday.
That was about the time my cold virus started up.
I've been a little miserable since then......but nothing some rest won't clear up.

Next week I'm moving on to Christmas cookies.
I know it seems really early, but since I've got a trip to Italy in November
and then a trip to Florida in early December (my son is graduating from college!),
I've got to do them while I can. :)

Instagram photos for this week:




This week's autumn oak tree platter.... 
It makes me smile.


Finally got to try out my new pear cutter.


Fall is the best for creating lots of texture.


Made with love for my new son-in-law on his wedding day.
He has always wanted to have a dachshund named Buddy.
I gave him an edible version while he waits for his dream to come true in the next few years.


Favorite autumn set from last year.....

Acorn Cookie (Tutorial)






Acorns.
They are small, but mighty....and just as cute as they can be.

CreativeCookie has made a CookieCrazie Custom Cutter acorn
It fits the bill for a classic acorn shape. 

I go back and forth on whether or not to make the acorn bottoms brown or green.
So in this tutorial.....I made both. :)


Outline and flood the acorn cap (top) with light brown 10-second glaze.
Allow it to dry for about 3 hours.
Press the scales texture mat into the crusted glaze to give the cap some texture.

Outline and flood the bottom of the acorn with your choice brown or green glaze.


Dry overnight.
 
Paint some accent lines onto the side of the acorn.
(I used airbrush color, but you can use regular Americolor gel colors instead.)


Once the lines are dry, brush on dry bronze luster dust onto the cap for shadowing the texture.
