Busy Cookie Day




I worked hard today. I am totally exhausted...(lol...not really) So here are the cookies I made today and the boxes I produced. Aren't they totaly adorable? The one that says Happy Holiday right one the front....that took many hours of planning to get it just right...(NOT...it was a total amazing fluke!...but it works for me!)

Cookie Box

Today I am making cookies for my neighbors and I realzied that I did not have enough cookie tins. What am I going to do? I did not want to put them on paper plates (all thought that is how a lot of them are coming to me!) I started ringing my hands and pulling my hair until I put on my thinking cap. What about the Martha Stewart cookie box that I got as a KNK cut file.... So....I cut one out...of course I ruined the first piece of paper because I forgot to cut the pounce lines as pounce so the whole thing cut apart. LOL....


I had purchased just last week, the Christmas Glitter Stack at Joann's. I did not have a plan for it but I thought the papers were pretty. The paper is really heavy duty. It cut perfectly. I used some of that transparency film that we got stacks of from Georgia, and red tape on the seams....Cute huh?


Polsia, I know you are going to be all over this!

Back to cutting and baking! Merry Christmas!

Tied Quilts



It has been a while since I posted. Just too dang busy but today I made two quilts. One for Chloe (the Soccer balls) and one for her teacher a huge Green Bay Packers Cheesehead. I could not find Packer fabric but I think this will work! The picture does not show it but it is all foot ball sayings like Pass, Goal, Field Goal, etc. The first quilt (Chloe's) took me a couple of hours to make today at Thursday Therapy....Then I cam home and helped at school making gingerbread houses with the kids. When school got out Chloe and I went to Joann's and bought the fabric for her teacher. Then we had to wait in line to cut, wait in line to pay and drive home. I got home about 4:00 and the second quilt was done by 5:00. I am very please with them! (I am going to make one for myself and put it under the tree from Santa to me!!!!) Soccer starts up again for Chloe Jan 8, so she will use this to wrap up in on those very cold days.
