Justice League of America is here!

Spent the last couple days filling customer orders and coming up with some new confetti. I rounded out my Justice League of America Set with Wonder Woman (finally) and redesigned the Flash logo to a more modern one. I also made Hawkgirl/Hawkman for a client and listed that in the shop as well. Honestly I did not know there was such a character as Hawkman or Hawkgirl but there is!

Iced Shortbread Easter Cookies

Once Again I am turning to the amazing Sweetopia and her great Shortbread Cookie Recipe and Royal Icing Recipe. I highly suggest your peruse the site to learn all you need to know about cookie decorating, recipes etc.  

I made these great rabbit and Easter egg cookies and they were SO delicious. Marian generally does cookies over 5 days (yes it time consuming and yes they taste fresh and delicous) but sometimes does a 3 day. I did the 3 day method. Both methods are explained here.

I made these simple white bunnies. Some had sugar sprinkle tails some had piped dots. I think I was partial to the dots but the sugar was easier.

Pairing Down: 50 Things

Lately I feel like my life is full. Full of Stuff. Stuff that is not making me happier, or better, or more satisfied with life. Its just stuff. It is just taking up mental clutter and visual Space. So I gave my self a Challenge and I am issuing one to my readers took. Get rid of 50 Things. Its So simple. I picked all this to get rid of PLUS a bag of clothes.

TONS of duplicate spoons, spatulas and kitchen gear. A few duplicate items and unused things and 4 items for garbage. Rest is residing at Value Village now. Phew! I feel so much better, but Now its like a bug. I want to get rid of more. I want to get rid of EVERYTHING. Its a part of me that is less is more. 

So Give it a try. This week find 50 things you don't REALLY need and get rid of it. Toss it, Recycle, Give it away or sell it. This is my challenge and go forth.

This has just been a Hectic January! A short hospital visit followed by a HUGE 200 piece 3d heart order for a repeat client has left me no time to blog! However, in between hearts I HAVE come up with time to make some new confetti items for the shop! Always looking for new ideas so if you have an idea for a confetti (or any paper product for me) drop me a line. Meanwhile check out the new shop stuffs in THE ETSY SHOP
