My very own mosaic cupcake by Michelle Legler of Mosaic Cottage...It came in the mail yesterday in such a cute box...I just love it! (She's got MUCH better photos of it and others up on her site.) She does the most lovely stuff and is starting to make cupcakes and cakes...check out the cake she made for Lisa Kaus (it's the one with the doll's head)...too cool!


I'll post more journal pages VERY soon. I just had to share....


This weekend I will be making my own yummies, although the recipients will be able to eat them...Every year, Mom and I make Christmas cookies. She's been doing it for as long as I can remember. It's a secret family recipe for sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles. We also do spritz cookies with almond. When I was little, I just "helped" her decorate and cut them out. When I turned 11, I took over making the cookie dough and basically handling the actual cutting and baking while Mom took over frosting and decorating. My 8-year-old niece started helping us last year. We had a blast! We usually make about 300 cookies by the time we're all done...And I'm thinking this year a triple batch of the sugar cookies may be necessary...Hmmm...
