Tis the season...

I'm really feeling the holiday spirit. I can't believe Walmart is already playing Christmas tunes! I'm totally GIDDY!!!

Which is why I don't mind that I bombarded myself with cookies this week. I finished a dozen horn of plenty cookies for a gal at work that turned out ADORABLE! I'm doing some pumpkins for my cousin's holiday party which she came over and helped me get going.. and that was a HUGE help. Of course, Thanksgiving would not be complete without beautiful place settings... so my contribution to our feast is going to be individually personalized turkey cookies to be used as placecards! YAY! I can't wait to share the pics...

new cookies!

I recently added a bunch of cookies to my picasa album.. including my current favorites - the cinderella cookies for my cousin alyssa's birthday! I think that these cookies definitely rival my butterfly cookies as my personal choice for the best I have ever done!

I also added fruit and veggie cookies that I gave to my parents as part of their anniversary gift - the other part was a fresh produce delivery box for 4 weeks.. hence the theme.

I made favors for my nephew's preschool's halloween party - all bagged and tied with "trick-or-treat" ribbon.

As you can see from the "bud light" cookies.. beer is a common theme in my family. They are definitely fun to make and I am open to the challenge of new brands! I still need to add my brother's birthday cookies and my dad and step-mom's anniversary cookies. Coming soon!
