Done!

Yup! My Christmas cards are done...but you'll have to wait until next week to see them, once I know they've started to be delivered. I did 40 of one design, new for this year and then pillaged my stash of one-offs for an additional 25. Phew. I was glad to see the mailman take them away today.

Today was the first of my baking and decorating days. I made all of my sugar cookies today and decorated them. I also made my all time favorite snowball cookies (the dough only...they'll be baked another day). I also still have all my gingerbread men to make. The dough is chilling and they'll get done this week.

I am reminded that I love baking but hate piping bags. I always think I get more on me and all over than I actually use on the cookies. Today it was red royal icing on my face (because it was on my finger then I touched my face). I'm just no good at controlling the flow or getting the tips to work the way they should. Oh well. I stick with simple and it works for me.

Here is a shot of some of them lined up on the table.

I LOVE the way the house smells!!!! You should come over. :)

No stamping today...but aren't my cookies cute?!

Thanks for stopping by!! Did you see the new Valentine's Day stuff on the store? There are the new Irresistible papers from My Mind's Eye and lots of other yummy stuff. Check it out!

And, don't forget, there are gift certificates too! Great for those last minute stamping friend gifts!
