I love all things celestial, so when I saw a picture on Pinterest of Galaxy Cookies, I had to try them. So I made up a batch of sugar cookies, and I purchased a large, round cutter because I knew I would need a big surface to work on. HERE is the link to the tutorial. Of course me being the super impatient person that I am, I decided to cut corners on the icing. For one, I just mixed powdered sugar with milk and added the food colouring, rather than deal with royal icing which can be a pain to keep moist. I also opted not to pipe the colours onto the cookies and used a spoon and plastic knife to spread. The icing was of course a little too runny, so dragging the toothpick through it yielded so-so results. Then I did the white stars but again, with runny icing, the dots came out big and globby. I had the patience to do only 5 cookies this way before throwing in the towel and doing the rest with the leftover icing. Still though, very tasty.
Yet another fall project I had to try: Glitter on acorns. Came out pretty!
My friend Lisa gave me a bunch of wine bottles over the summer. I spray painted 4 of the large ones with frosted spray paint, drilled holes in the back, drew the tree scene with a paint pen and stuff a strand of orange and purple lights inside. I have 3 more bottles to do.
Finished the skull cross stitch and framed it. Giving it to my stepdaughter.
I made a counting error on my shells so that set me back because I've had to go back and rip out stitches twice. Still chipping away at it.
