2  That Snitch Cray!- and its a cookie in Dessert by najaorama on: October 01, 2014 11:14:46 AM
I'm teaching myself royal icing cookie decoration, and I just got a round cookie mold. There is definitely a learning curve, but as soon as I figured out how to get a round cookie I knew I had to make a snitch.

I used floral wire and old book pages for the wings. There are some things I would do diferently but all in all I love it. Don't think I could eat it though.

Like I said...a learning curve.

4  Delft China Cookies- easy (but labor intensive) in Dessert by najaorama on: September 05, 2014 01:05:52 PM

I found a new labor intensive hobby (my favorite kind). Cookie decorating!
It all started on pinterest when I saw some pretty cookies and thought "I want to try that." 8 hours later...

It was harder than I thought but the learning curve was steep. By the end of this batch I already had ideas for the second.

First off I needed a better cookie. I used found this recipe and I love it. The dough was a bit soft so chill chill chill, but the cookies are firm and most importantly taste AMAZING! Must be the cream cheese.

Then I decorated them in three distinct stages. Outline, fill, indigo. This was the key to keeping them from going all schloopy like a Dali painting. I used this tutorial and a cheap plastic paintbrush from a $1 watercolor palette. I also made the indigo color by making a vivid blue royal icing and adding a touch of black.

It was a lot easier than it looks but did take a good deal of time. In the end I'm super pleased with the result.

I had the worst day at work, but when i got home there was a box from Denmark!
I remember a post where psudo_pix said she had swap anxiety, I can't imagine why. First Danish chocolates because me husbands family is from Denmark. They are in an Ikea ziplock bag (Im not sure why I find that cool)

Then these foxy booties.

A team Zissou hat for my husband.

And a fox hat for me.

And finally a tiny knitted shrimp.

Really, everything is made with such attention to detail, one of the best swap packages I've gotten. Now I have swap anxiety.

I hope yours gets there soon.

Im going to go ahead and post pics of what I sent. Adrienne has a pinterest board of images that are pink and blue so I decided to send a color themed package.  I must admit its my new favorite color combination.

In her questionnaire she humbly requested a pair of socks if the sender had time. This was only my second attempt at socks and mistakes were made, but I'm really proud of the end result.

Then I made some glass pendants from images from her pinterest board.

And finally I went through my stash of vintage sewing notions and lace and threw in pink and blue items. The doll coats were from a thrift store I went to like a year ago and haven't known what to do with them. They seemed right up her alley.

I am quite proud of the package I sent, and hope she likes the stuff as much as I like making them. (I think I am going to make those socks again for myself)

I got a great package from adrienne_bowers yesterday.
We both love vintage...well everything.
First a sweet owl ornament and a button bracelet that I adore.

Then there is this great journal/needle book.

Some of the pages are paper and some are felt.And between the pages were little extras like vintage sewing notions and ephemera.

The whole thing is just my style. Thank you Adrienne.
