Ladybugs and Flowers...

...that is what Lucy, the winner of my recent giveaway, wanted as her cookies! I decided to go a little bold this time, and outline everything in black! I think it definitely makes all the colors "pop", which I love...what do you think?



I was very disappointed to hear that 3 of the cookies broke...my track record of late, has not been very good!  Up until recently, I had mailed several boxes of cookies without any casualties...it is definitely one of the "cons" about the whole shipping process in general.  I pack them as well as I can, mark the box "Fragile" and still it happens.  Anyhoo, I do know that even though they break, they still taste the same, and from what I understand, Lucy did enjoy her cookies!

For those of you that don't know, I am a self proclaimed  HGTV freak!  I love this channel.  Whenever there is nothing on TV (and sometimes even when there is), I can always count on HGTV to give me a designing tip or two!  One of my favorite people to watch is Sarah Richardson, I love listening to her cute Canadian accent...and her sidekick Tommy is a hoot!  She has had several different shows and the most current is "Sarah 101"...the other day they were redoing a "box kitchen" (all items purchased and no custom work, for you novices, lol) and this was one of the design elements:



I instantly fell in love and decided this must go in my craftroom...it is time for a clock change!  If I had already purchased that Silhouette that I keep saying I am going to buy, I could probably do this myself...but I haven't so I had to track down someone who would do it for me.  My go-to wall vinyl people are Dali Decals.  They have several, really cool premade designs to choose from, but they will also custom design just about anything you want.  This what they have come up with:






Whatch'a think?  Pretty cool, huh?  I don't have to use the circle in the middle, but it will probably help with the placement of the numbers!  I am just deciding on size right now.  Can't wait to make it happen, I LOVE this idea!

I am working on a good size order for Qwest today...70 cupcakes and ice creams, better get busy!

Till next time...Happy Baking!



There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

First - LOVE the black outlines - super cute and really effective to make the colors pop! Job well done. And yes, they are just as delicious broken as they are unbroken.

Second - HELLOOOOO!!! You have a BFF who will be over the moon thrilled to pieces to create your clock for you!!! DUHHHHHH!!!! Can you identify the fonts and tell me the sizes, and I can cut away. Oh, AND it's probably a GOOD thing that you haven't bought that Silhouette just yet (unless you want one for a really good price) because they're discontinuing the Silhouette SD for the new 12" x 12" platform. Yeah, story of my friggin' life!! The good news is that they still work like a dream, so if you want one CHEAP, I'm sure that will be very possible. The new ones are going to be about $400, I think. Ugh! Let me know about the clock, okay? Miss you mucho!!

Very cute idea. I LOVE Sara Richardsons style. I actually record her show so I dont miss it. I am addicted to HGTV! Unless hubbies home that's the channel my TV stays on...when he's here it's fishing, hunting or racing. Sounds like I married a bit of a redneck doesn't it :)

I think it might be a weather issue because ALL the different boxes I have ordered have never been broken.. I know it bothers you but they are still GREAT!!!
