And by elephant, I mean my beautiful blog makeover!
I couldn't be happier! If you popped in on Friday you probably noticed that things were different but all was not quite right...that was my transition stage! Of course "I" can't take any credit it for the design at all. I worked with a wonderful ETSY seller called SolidArtCollective, and can say without doubt that it was one of my best ETSY experiences, ever! dRE (yep, that's what she goes by) worked with me tirelessly through every step, until I was completely happy with the outcome. I now have an awesome new "logo" and blog header as well as, a new business card, personalized cookie labels and even a little "Grab my Button", right over there ------->. Go ahead, grab it, I'll wait while you do!
Everything is still here, but you just have to look up. I cleaned up my sidebar and put most everything except my cookie "Labels" in the menu bar above.
Would love to know what you think of the new "me"...and by me, I mean my new blog!
I also worked on a few Valentine's Day cookies. You might remember the Brush Embroidery cookies that I did here, and since I love the look, I decided to do it on some hearts! This design, while a little time consuming, is really quite simple to do. No really, it is!
See, another cool thing about my new blog...I can make the pictures much bigger than before! So whatch'a think? As you can see, there was a "miss" amongst the hits...I tried it with black icing that I already had in a piping bag...the consistency was perfect for piping, but NOT for this technique. It kind of resemble a flower that someone had stepped on...not good.
I have got tons going on so be sure to stop by again soon! Till then...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!
