Sharing my resolutions with you guys to keep me accountable….
1. Workout More ( Signing up for boot camp, gulp!)
2. Blog More ( I am a blog slacker, I blame the holidays.)
3. Shoot More ( Going to attempt to participate in the Picaboo Project )
4. Less TV, Twitter, Google Reader, Internet, Facebook – More Books
5. Less Clutter ( In my house, inbox, junk drawer, back seat of car, purse, etc.)
6. Less Repetition, More Creativity ( In my Marriage, Work, Home, Cooking, nail polish, etc.)
Let’s recap in February….
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
Two weeks ago, I mentioned making Christmas Cookies. Sorry it took so long to post them. Wanna view the first post? Click HERE.
I would suggest you make these cookies over two days. I used Bridget’s Vanilla-Almond Sugar Cookie recipe and baked the cookies the first night. Once they were cool, I placed them in a large container to decorate the next night.
The next night I tried my hand at Royal Icing for the first time ever. I was kinda nervous. Didn’t want to overmix the icing. Here are some of the goodies you need.
After watching lots of youtube videos, I made a batch of icing on the first try.
When flooding the icing, I think I could of made it thinner. I was afraid to add too much water and if you do the icing doesn’t dry. Didn’t want to ruin the cookies that were taking two days to make.
A friend hosted a Wreath, Wine and Christmas Cookie Party. Yes, all three are much better than one! So we drank wine, decorated wreaths, ate cookies and even made some Christmas cards.
Here are some of the finished cookies. I hated the wreath cookies. They looked bad and the more I tried to fix them, the uglier they got.
There are a lot of supplies needed to make these cookies. I shipped them home and plan on decorating cookies with my niece and her friends over the holiday.
