Cookie People

I just had to share this.  My daughter Ali, loves to bake.  She made these sugar cookies and decided to decorate them like people we knew.  We ate ourselves!  I did remember to take a picture of one cookie though.  This one was made for Auntie Elaine.

She really is a creative and talented girl.  She keeps asking me how old she needs to be before she can  make her own website!  Soon, probably, she has lots to share.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas!

Oh, my goodness, I cannot believe it is December 19th already. I have been so busy all fall with family, kids, work, school, kids activities, coaching cheerleading, etc!  Time has flown by me!  But, this is my favorite time of year, I need to slow down a little to enjoy.  My goal is to have some more "me" time to enjoy my crafts.

I have been up to a few crafty things over the last few weeks, so I thought I would share.  First, I did my annual craft fair at my sister's work.  It is open to her office building and is not a huge venue, but fun to do.  Even more fun this year because my other sister, Kim, has started selling Lia Sophia and she had a booth next to mine, so we got to hang out all day.

Here I am at my table, I did not really have time to make a lot, so I had some things I previously made and added a few new things I was able to make the week of the event.

And, my sister Kim at her booth:  if you like Lia Sophia her website is HERE

Here are my two new items this year...Snowman Hershey bar and Chocolate Christmas tree!

The inspiration for these items came from the internet... Laurie Furnell and Qbees Quest

Here is a photo from when I made a bunch of Christmas trees...looks like a forest of Christmas trees! :)

Well, I have to go and get some Christmas stuff done now...wrapping, wrapping, wrapping!  Have an awesome day!
