Super easy fall and Thanksgiving

I'm not going to lie...I am just not feeling the fall slash Thanksgiving cookies this year.  Now, don't get me wrong, I have seen some super cute, new ideas this year, but for whatever reason, I am just not in the mood to create them.  I did this plate, just so I could share on my blog.  They are completely no-brainers and although, yes, I think they turned out fine...they don't really have the "wow" factor.

Once again, Kelli's work crew reaped the benefits...she took them to work so that they would be "gobbled" up...pun intended!

Anyhoo...


See?  Nothing special, but super easy!  I did "marbling" on the leaves and then when they were dry, mixed up some gold Lustre Dust (with vodka...no worries, it evaporates and you never taste it) and "splattered" it on the cookies.  Sadly, you can not see it in the picture...but trust me it is there!  It does add a nice sheen to the cookie.

The turkey was an oval scallop that I cut the bottom off of and his torso is a Royal Icing Transfer.  Easy, peasy!

I say, let's move on to Christmas...what do you think.  Believe it or not...I will be working on my first ones (other than my little Grinch, of course) TODAY!  Crazy, right?!

I have been a busy little "elf", creating new things for my holiday decorating this year!  Oh, and speaking of elves...what do you think of this?


I saw this at Kirklands and fell in LOVE!  It really made me LOL!  I mean seriously...how great would it be to have a little elf come decorate your tree (my least favorite part of decorating...don't judge!)? 

Sure...I could have bought them, but what fun would that be (and at about $12 for each leg, kind of ridiculous, right?)  Hey, I'm cheap when it comes to this sort of thing, what can I say?!   Be sure to check back in and see my version!

Till then...

You are so wrong, my Dear!! These totally have the WOW factor! I adore the little turkeys :D.

The elf legs are cute! They'd be cute on a front door wreath too, I think.

I can't wait to see what you do with the elf legs! LOL
