I promised you some more decorated cookies, and here they are! I apologize for there being only a few pictures of these, but last week was ridiculously busy (hence being MIA from the blog all week) and I was kind of haphazard with the picture-taking.
Hopefully you still get the idea.
So I told you in my last post that my Lolo passed away last week. Well, while he was in the ICU for two and a half weeks, he was attended to by many wonderful nurses. So the family wanted to give them a token of our appreciation. And what better says “Thank you” than cookies? (more…)
Ok, true confession: I’m kind of a geeky girl. I mean, I don’t go to conventions, but I grew up on Star Trek: The Next Generation, am an avid Doctor Who fan, still mourn the cancelling of Firefly, and watch dumb SyFy movies for fun. The latest sci-fi related thing I’m getting into is Steampunk. I realize I’m kind of late to the party on this one. But the more I read Epbot, the more I’m loving it.
But since I don’t go to conventions and the husband hates costume-related parties of any kind, there’s a limit to the useful steampunk crafts I can make. But then I realized steampunk would be a wicked cool theme for Valentine cookies. I’ve been crazy excited about making these for weeks, but haven’t had the chance until this weekend.
My sister and I made these cookies yesterday to bring to our respective Thanksgiving gatherings. We made leaves, acorns & pumpkins.
