Latest cookie orders.

These are "sample" St. Patrick's Day cookies that I made!  I loved making these, but let's be honest...unless you either ARE Irish or know someone close to you that is, there isn't a lot of demand for these cookies!  

Didn't stop me...




Bridal Shower


Rainbow and Heart themed First Birthday


Cute little elephants for a baby shower


No orders this week, but a ton to cut out for next week!  

Stay tuned!

A BIG thank you to all of you...

that took the time to either leave a comment or contact me via email!  It is nice to know that someone still does stop by, although I could not blame anyone for giving up on me after such a long hiatus!

I understand everyone's frustration with leaving a comment here...I believe I have rectified that.  As I explained in a few emails, I was getting so MANY SPAM comments on my blog, I had changed the format so that "cyber robots" could not leave comments, but apparently it discouraged others from doing it as well.  I have changed it back, so it should not be a problem anymore...for those that did have issues, I hope you will take a minute to try leaving a comment to see if I have fixed the problem.

I was so happy to see I still had readers who took an interest in my little blog!  I also encourage people to find me on Facebook and Instagram as well...still Fresh Cut Flours for both!  If it's not your "thang", I get it!  Believe me...I am sure I was the last person to join the Facebook party!  I always swore I would not do it, but here I am...all for the love of sharing my passions...cookies and ABC Projects!

What I have been up to since we last chatted:

Baby Boy shower cookies:


Also baby boy shower:


We added a new member to our family when my daughter Kelli, took home this little guy!  Meet Bruschi...


He is the cutest little white boxer...if you look closely you can see how much lighter is right eye is that the left.  He is now 7 weeks old...the best part, he can come visit but then I can send him home for her to train!

And in case you can't tell just how small he is...here he is next to Uncle Otis:


Sadly, we had to have our little Lucy put down a few days after Thanksgiving.  We knew the time would come eventually because she only had one good kidney...it still broke our hearts.  I think Otis gets pretty lonely without his sister around...at least now he will have someone to play with occasionally!

And last but not least...a project that has been in the making for about a year and a half.  I think I shared this OLD wooden tool chest that I purchased from an Estate Sale.  This is the condition it was in when I brought it home:



Yep...it was one hot mess, to say the least!  I loved how all the drawers had little compartments, but it had old, nasty green felt...needless to say out it came!  I removed the hardware and spray painted it black.  I also added cute little "bun" feet. 

How do you like me now?



Replaced the ugly green felt with black:



Wouldn't this make an amazing jewelery box?!  Well, if one were lucky enough to have that much jewelery!

And another peek at the before and after:


As much as I LOVE this piece, I think I am going to sell it...it does look pretty cute in my living room, however!

Till next time...have a great weekend!

You are about to get hit with a ton of pics!

Sooooo, it's no secret I have been a horrible blogger in the last six months!  Having said that...even I was SHOCKED to see that I hadn't posted anything since  before Halloween!  Yikes!!

If I'm being honest, I will tell you that there are a couple of reasons for that!  First and foremost, I'm going to blame Instagram!  Yep, that's me...pass the buck onto someone else!  I'm not going to lie...it's easy, it's super quick, and boom, instant gratification!  People "like" your photos and a lot of them will even take it one step further and leave you a nice comment!

Reason #2...it has been easy to lose interest over the years with my blog because I don't feel I get a lot of "traffic"...therefore very few comments!  And let's be honest, everyone likes to hear a little feedback once in a while!  I know a large part of that is because I don't have advertising on my blog, but that's just because I have never taken the time and effort into doing so!  I started this blog to share my passion for cookies and an occasional "re-do" project!

I guess what I am really trying to say is that I feel like I may be blogging for a small handful of people...if there is even that many anymore!

I have recently joined Facebook (collective gasp) and there again, it is strictly to share my cookies and other random projects!  And you know what else...I can do all my posting at the same time that I post to Instagram!  If they added Blogger to that list, this lazy girl would be in seventh Heaven!

So, I guess my question is...do you think I should continue this blog...if so, I would LOVE it if you would take a quick second to leave a comment telling me so!

Okay, still with me?!  Let's see what I have been up to the last six months!




















Between all the cookie madness, Ron and I built a new dining room table...okay , he built, I did all the finishing work!















So, there you have it!  We are up to date!  

If you are still "with me", please take a minute to let me know!  Or you may want to just follow me on Instagram or Facebook...still Fresh Cut Flours!

Thanks for letting me ramble on!
