The day is finally here! Cibolo Fest 2012! If you are visiting the site becuase you saw me at Cibolo Fest, thank you for your support! I know the site is a littly shabby right now but in the coming months I will be working with a graphic designer (for real this time) to create a whole new look! So check back often!!!!
A few weeks ago I was asked to make cookies for a neighbors 31 gifts buying party (think tupperware). I decided to go to their website to see if I could pull any ideas. I was under the impression that they sold purses and wallets and the like. I was a little off! they sell any sort of bag or organizing tote you can think of. BUT I still decided to go with purse cookies and a matching wallet! I noticed looking through the catalouge that they touted all their new spring like patterns so I went with nice bright colors!
Every year I go WAY overboard with Christmas goodies. This year was NO exception. I made sugar cookies, spritz cookies, candied citrus peels (lemon and orange), SEVERAL pounds of peanut brittle, candied nuts (almond and pecan), various jams, various spirits. I made all of this on top of getting the house decorated and ready for some first time visitors! We have only lived here for less that two years and it was brand new when we moved in…but there where lots of things that needed to be done that I have put off and put off! So I cleaned and decorated for two weeks!
This years cookies I went with a more modern theme, with greys and pinks. I got the inspiration from a guest post over on Half Baked – The Cake Blog
I LOVE HOW VANILLA BEANS LOOK IN FOODS!! and it makes for one heavenly cookie!
Someone is very interested in what I am doing!
There was a little bit of a contamination here. I opened a bottle of grey icing over my cookies….which was very dumb…and got dried icing crumbs all over my snow ladies! I ruined the finish on a few of them trying to get the crumbs off…OH WELL
that not even half!!!!
