Hearts!

Love day is coming and so are the hearts!!!

Heart cookies are beautiful and don't need a lot of decoration to get their point across.



Sometimes they're a bit bossy....








....some are very chatty and talk all night...







...while others are quietly cute.







These like to go 'au natural'...







Some hearts belong to someone right from the start.






Unfortunately....some have a hole where they're not supposed to 
and are leaking all over the place.




...and that would be mine.



Yup, I have a leaky heart.

I didn't always have one 
(or if I did, it was so tiny that my doctors couldn't quite hear it)
but I do now, and boy....is it ever a doozy.

So that's where I've been for the past month or so.
I've had lots and lots of pictures taken of my insides.
Tests and measurements galore!

But these doctors aren't quite done yet.

My little leaky heart needs a fix 
(technically a mitral valve repair)
that is going to move me out of the kitchen for awhile.

I've got a couple weeks until it gets fixed.
But before and after, I'll be at home with my feet up,
 watching every single show Bravo has to offer 
and getting all caught up on my reading and photo editing!

Hopefully, I'll be spending some time here sharing lots of pictures with you all.
But, since I've never been through this before, I'm not sure how I'll be feeling.

So if I go missing for a bit again, now you'll know where I'll be!
Good thoughts, prayers and well wishes are always welcome!!!

Much love to you all!

Santa's Mustache Cookies!

Something happens when I walk down the gift wrap aisle at my favorite stores.

I see cute bags and instead of thinking...
"Oh I want to put a gift in that!!"...
...my brain says...
"That NEEDS to be a cookie!!!"
So I made these.




I squealed in the middle of Target when I saw it.
(really good way to embarrass your teenage son by the way)




You can't blame me though, can you?




Kind of a cookier's dream come true really....only two colors, no hand-cutting, 
no special cutters, easy-peasy.




Well I did use a mustache cutter.....but still one color!




We'll be leaving these out for Santa this year!




I hope I can keep the elf from eating them first!

Elf on the Shelf Cookies!


Does your house have an elf?




Last year we adopted James...




He's a mischievous little stinker sweetheart.




We've found him in closets, on top of the Christmas tree, in my mixer!




One morning we found him under Jack's bed!!
(Which I appreciated, since Jack was supposed to clean under there 
and couldn't quite remember to get that done!)




He's quite the little tattletale....
(the elf not Jack....well maybe Jack too)




But with that cute little face....you've just gotta love him.




So if you have an elf in your house...



I hope they catch all the sweet little things
your munchkins do this holiday!

And if you can't find him anywhere....check under the bed!

(and if you need a cutter to make your own elves....
try "Marlene" from Cristin's Cookies.
That's the one I used!
You can find it HERE

Snowflake Cookies for a Frozen Movie Party!

So Olaf made an appearance the other day and introduced himself,
but he wasn't the only cookie I made for the Frozen Movie.
(he was just the most mischievious)

Tammy from Pink Peppermint Designs emailed me when she started planning her Frozen Movie Party and I couldn't wait to play along!

She asked for little 'build-your-own-snowman' sets for the kids to play with and take home.




I love the little bag she put Olaf and his parts in!






Tammy also asked for some sparkly snowflakes in navy and turquoise to match her background....




I love snowflake cookies....and snowflake cookie pops are even better!









Olaf!!!

Oh my word.




Never knew a snowman who liked having his picture taken quite so much.....

Tammy created beautiful printables for this party...
snowman hats for straws, invitations,place cards, labels, banners....

you can find them all in her shop!



Thanks Tammy for inviting me to play along with your girls!!

I hope they had fun!





Whew!

I finally got the little guy in a box!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!!!
