Here’s the view out the front door. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t so windy. It’s like a crazy blizzard out there.
The only thing that would make being snowed in on a Saturday even better would have been if my first Studio Calico kit had arrived. Oh well, I’ll have that to look forward to next week. Specifically the 9th, when UPS has promised to deliver.
While I’ve got some paper projects I want to complete, and I’ll be dying to rip into that kit, cookies will have my attention for the next 2 weeks. I have 2 jobs for this week – both Valentine related. Amounting up to about 130 iced heart shaped cookies by Friday. The following week another 80 for a birthday party. The birthday girl is a chemist at a local fragrance plant – so these cookies will be in the shape of perfume bottles. They should be fun. Going to use some luster dust for the first time (or so I say). I need to order this today.
This company has the best copper cookie cutters in the coolest shapes.
Ok, enough about cookies - back to paper...Yesterday, I spent the day making this mini album. (Coincidentally shaped like a baked good!)
