It's been fun getting ready for Christmas..It's a lot at once..
But I really like the creativity of it also.It gives you an opportunity to try new things..new recipes.. redo what you learned in the past year with new designs..
taught many of us how to handpaint sugar cookies.I was a focused student:) To say the least.They were just so beautiful her cookies I had to try.
I made some for friends during the year..and they appreciated them very much.
You can personalize etc..
My daughters are creative and artistic..
I hope they try these soon..
And they each have cookie cutters from Jain:)on top of their own.
I am sure they will blow me away when they start!
Yesterday afternoon I sat in the sunroom..listening to Christmas Carols on my favorite station....with the sun streaming in..handpainting a few..
It is so relaxing.
Of course I wish I had baked more sugar cookies..and had more cutters:)
But nevertheless every little cookie is a blank sugary canvas..
And so much fun to do..
A little Christmas Joy..for ourselves..Slows down the pace.. quiet..
A gift to ourselves..
Thanks Mary.It's a fun fun peaceful little pastime.
I know mine are humble beginnings:)compared to yours..
I would say I am a brave soul!
