When I get better at sewing and following patterns, I'm totally going to make this dress!  I love the style of the halter.  Great work!

I love the first shirt.  I think I'm just going to need to grab a shirt and start following the directions and working it out as I go along.  Is there a particular shirt fabric that works better than others?

Love the scarf, even though I hate the team Smiley  I haven't been courageous enough to try an illusion knit scarf.  Maybe this is the time to start!

This is sooooo cute!  It's so hard to find knitted fun projects like this.  AMAZING (and I love your rabbit.  I have two myself)

Um I pretty much love everything about Harry Potter and Johnny Depp and Pirates.  Therefore, I pretty much love everything about this post.

28  COOKING / Dessert / Gavel Sugar Cookies with handmade cutter! on: June 12, 2008 10:48:45 AM
Hey everyone!
This is my first post, so go easy on me!
I wanted a cute, creative idea to thank the people who wrote recommendations for me for law school.  Since I was a little remiss in sending thank yous after they wrote them, I really needed a good gift since I was a few months out of date.  I decided to wait and see where I got in so that it looked like the gift was planned all along and I wasn't just bad about sending thank yous. Wink
So here it is!  This was my first time decorating sugar cookies, but I work at a cookie bakery (drop cookies, not decorated and iced cookies), so I decided to take my hand to this.  I used Nigella Lawson's cookie recipe from Food Network, and it was AWESOME!  I used two magazines that were about the same height to rest my rolling pin on to make sure that my cookies were all of even height.

A closeup  of one of the cookies:

I used gold luster dust on the cookies

Here's my homemade cookie cutter!  I'm really proud of it.  The only gavel cookie cutter I could find online cost a fortune, so I decided to figure out it I could make it myself.  Half an hour of wandering up and down the aisles at the local home improvement store, an hour of bending the metal, and 4 hours impatiently waiting for the glue to set, and this is what I got!  I'm super stoked at how it turned out.
Some of the cookies didn't get covered in icing.  I got bored with doing them, but in my head I justified it in case someone didn't like icing.

In the box with LOTS of shred (hoping that these don't break in transit):

And the box all closed and tied with ribbon:

Not as good as Martha, but then again, who is?
