A Guest Post and Cookies, Cookies, Cookies

I have, what I like to call, crafting ADD. I can never work on just one project at a time and I always have to be changing them up. I also like to constantly be learning new things. A few weeks ago our church had a cookies exchange. Apparently these ladies take it serious, as the flier said "no plain chocolate chip cookies allowed." I knew I had to bring my A game. I did a lot of reading and even made a few flops before I fell in love with royal icing. My cookies won "most beautiful" and I am addicted. All I can think about is what my next awesome cookie will be. The kids handed some of my cookies out to their teachers at our homeschool co-op. One of those teachers happened to be Virginia from That Bald Chick. She fell in love with my cookies and had me share my recipe on her website. Please go check her out and try my recipe. You won't be disapointed, I promise.

I recently bought a pattern from an indie doll designer. I could not resist. Everything she has is completely adorable. The company is called Dolls and Daydreams and you can find it here. I bought the flower fairy pattern. I started out following the pattern exactly, minus the wings. Each one I made I changed a little. They are supposed to be Christmas surprises for my girls but they have all seen them. They talk about them all the time so I think it's safe to say they will love their gifts.

This little lady was made just as the pattern suggested, minus the wings.

I gave this one cheeks and two ponies instead of one.

I got real creative on this one. She has different eyes, hearts as cheeks, braids, leggings, and a headband.

As you can see, this one is still a work in progress. I just love her little tights and her crown. She is a gift for my one and only niece. My oldest would die of embarrassment if I gave her a doll. (Oh yes, we are at that wonderful pre-teen stage.)
