one thing i love is flames & skulls. now my house is not decorated in such but i do have a few things that have flames n skulls decorated on it. ive always loved the badass look. i wanted to do a black cookie with black skull, red & orange flames. well we all know what black icing does to the mouth so i decided to go with white background. i made some skull royal transfers in black and they just didnt look right on the white cookie. so yes i tossed em and started over and made the white skulls. ahhh so much better. i love this cookie!

My dad works at John Deere and I thought I would make some fun cookies to send him for Father's Day. At first I made royal transfers for the deere logo but they kept breaking when I placed them on the cookie. So I got out my trusty Kopykake projector and did it that way. They came out nice. I can only imagine how green his tongue & mouth are going to look after taking a few bites out of this haha. ahhhh its fun right? green mouth & tongue! HA!

this week i made a few different cookie cut outs so i can go design crazy and start hoping on posting pics. im determined to start getting many pics up so i can have a lengthy cookie index. so i took a crack at brush embroidery. i have seen it before and i have always loved it. looks so classy & elegant. it took along time to do but i tell ya the end result is exquisite. i think it would look really pretty if the background color was a little darker and the white would pop even more. or even having a pastel color as the embroidery would look neat too. oh well...next time.

its baseball season and my little niece is on a co-ed team. kids are too much fun to watch when they play sports. i made these cute lil baseballs and bats for her team. finished them with some red and blue ribbons to coordinate with their team colors and voila!
