A few Christmas cookies and a little reveal!

But before I get to those, I must share my little piece of news!  Last week I was notified by Beckie from "Roadkill Rescue", saying that she wanted to feature my little Stocking Holder on her website.

Now, I join "linky" parties quite often as you can see at the bottom of my posts, and I have been featured in the past, but what makes this one a little more special, is that she found ME...I did not submit it to her specifically!  If you have not been to her site, be sure to check it out...it features fun projects that people have created out of trash (or something very close to it).  I find ALL website "features" the highest form of flattery...thanks Beckie, for making my day!

After another successful Christmas Cookie Decorating party last week (third annual), I was left with a few un-iced cookies at the end of the night. Although my hubby likes to eat them without the icing, I just could not let these Christmas cookies go that way...especially since I was also left with a counter full of icing as well. So just a quick cookie share:


Please pardon the bows on the little elf boots...I was too lazy to mix a thicker piping icing to do them and they are a little sloppy, to say the least!

Since Christmas is almost here, I will share one other little project I took on about a week ago.  I first saw this cute idea on Pinterest (duh!) and knew that I had to make one!  This is the original:

I mean seriously, how stinkin' cute is this?

Now mind you, I discovered this image at about 5:00 in the morning while scanning through Pinterest, so my first thought was that I could not do anything until I found a board to put it on.  Ho,Ho,Ho...not so fast!  The light bulb went off in my head and I instantly ran out to my stash in the garage and found this:


Perfect!  Within in minutes, it had it was cleaned and had it's first coat of ASCP in Pure White!  It was the weirdest thing though, for the first time EVER since using my beloved ASCP, it did this:


Never in all the times has the paint done this!  I figured that another coat, might cover it up...but sadly, not the case.  It just seemed to get worse with each coat.  I was not to be discouraged...after all, I love this paint more than my luggage, so I would make it work!

After deciding that there must have been something very stubborn on that cupboard door, I sanded it down and got back to this:


A couple more coats of ASCP, and we were back in business!  I created a stencil using my Silhouette and painted on the "HO! HO! HO!.  The first chance I had, I purchased inexpensive stockings and Santa Hat.  Everything else, I already had on hand!

This is my version:


Whatcha' think?  A MUCH simpler version of the original, but I was very pleased at how it turned out!  This is hanging outside on my front door...and yes, it is quite large but I happen to have a huge front door so I could pull it off!  I know, I should take a picture of the whole porch since it is all decorated...I actually just snapped this with my phone!  I will try to remember to do that tonight!

That's it for me!  Trying to finish up Christmas shopping and wrapping!  Till next time!

I LOVE the chippy paint look so I would have been happy with the original paint job *lol*. Honestly, I like yours much better than the original.
