2018 Christmas Cookies

Due to life's ups and downs, I've been focused on so many other things that design work has come in dead last on my list. The arduous process of relocating after 24 years of living in the same house took on a life of it's own. To this end, I've painted more rooms than I can count, repaired sprinkler pipes, deck railings, realigned and re-stacked retaining wall blocks and became the queen of fixing dry rot. The normal stuff like repairing drawer glides, replacing broken toggle switches and patching and re-texturing walls goes without saying. Now multiply that times 2 houses, and you can see why I've had no time to make cookies or design anything. I did get to add an impact driver and finish nailer to my toolbox, so that's a plus.Yes, this girl owns and uses all the tools in the garage!
My husband's recent stroke and other health issues knocked us down again, and made us take stock of what truly matters. The family received an early Christmas present however with him getting better quickly and hopefully on the road to a complete recovery.
Okay, enough of that!!!!
Below are some old tried and true designs as well as some design-as-I-go ones. After a few icing consistency mishaps I started to work my way back into cookie bliss.

  1. I'm delighted to hear from you, however, I am sorry for your husband's health issues. My husband and I had to move last year too after 30 years! 4 dumpsters later and a completely revamped property, we're using that one as a rental and have actually moved into something a lot larger, at least for now, so I know how those projects take on a life of their own! Your cookies are beautiful as always! Take care of yourselves. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. You're in my prayers.

    1. Thank you so much Holly. We're taking it one day at a time.
