Sigh. So…gone are my plans to make all my Christmas cards, as I once again ordered cards on Snapfish. My craft stuff is boxes (still), my dining room table is my office, my living room is my bedroom, and the guest room is a nightmare. The only room that both looks and functions as it is supposed to is the kitchen (thank goodness). So, last weekend, for my concert’s reception, I made these:
And yes, I will admit it. I used a mix. For sugar cookies!! But it was Martha Stewart’s Crispy Sugar Cookie mix which I picked up at Macy’s (I needed flour for cookies and didn’t have time to run to the grocery store on top of shopping for a new black skirt since I can’t find the box that holds the one I already own). I added the eggs and butter, rolled them out and cut them so it felt like I did the hard part. And those decorations? That’s all me, thanks (including individually placed red round sprinkles to create holly berries…let’s talk about the ways I spend my time, shall we?).
They were good. What was really funny is that all the eighth notes went first (it was a concert, after all) even though they tasted exactly the same as the stars. I guess people really do enjoy novelty.
IF I can get through next week, my hope is to bake a lot of cookies (from scratch) for Christmas gifts. I also have a project I’m working on for my sister, so I’ll post info about that one of these days. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving (for those in the U.S.!)
