Fall is around the corner!

Hard to believe with the Memphis heat, but autumn is coming! Celebrate the season with "fallified" colors. I love that word. Fallified. My mom made it up many years ago, and we use it all the time :) I also love the swirls of colors in these sugar cookies... reminds me of the wind whipping the leaves around once the trees have changed colors. *sigh*

Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers...

I love these sweet baby buggies! I can make them more boyish too... I've also got a really cute onesie cutter that is precious when decorated with a peter pan collar piped onto it for a girl or plain with piped "snaps" for a boy. The "M's" were made for a baby shower and also, a friend of mine gave birth to a sweet little girl named Lucy, hence the "L's"... I indulged her husband's sweet tooth when I took them dinner!

My son had a pirate birthday party a few weeks ago... These were our party favors. I've got a whole set of pirate-themed cutters sure to satisfy your little swashbuckler!

All Creatures Great and Small

I love "critters"! These frogs fit the bill for a little boy's birthday treats at school!

Tailgating and College football!

Football season is almost here! These cookies were all really fun to make. I claim no affiliation with any team... although I DID grow up in the Starkville area... Anyway, I can do pretty much any team you're rooting for! I made the gift bag of assorted Mississippi State cookies for a friend to send to a special college student down in Starkville. What a fun way to surprise someone who may be missing home!

Flip Flopping

These flip flops were the first cookies I decorated for someone else. Pretty appropriate given my affection for wearing flip flops! They turned out really cute, but I've also come a long way since then and use some different techniques to create cleaner lines on them. I've done them without embellishments as well... equally cute!
