Halloween Stitching

I spent some of my free time the past few days stitching this little Halloween sampler. I had so much fun doing it. Now I just need to find a cute black frame for it. I just drew the pictures onto some muslin and then pulled out Halloween colors of embroidery floss and went to town. Enjoy!

doing a little stamping

My oldest daughter is back in school and life has settled back into more of a routine and I have found more time to craft again! I love this time of year. It's the time when Summer starts to wind down and I start thinking of cooler weather, Autumn leaves and Halloween. I know you might think it is a little early to even mention Halloween, but in the crafting world I think you always have to start a little early for every holiday, right?
I had fun playing with these cute stamps from My Cute Stamps. If you have never seen this line of stamps, I suggest you head on over to their website and check it out!
Now, I know my posts have been very sparse lately, but I have a feeling that will soon change as I have a few projects in the works. Crafting is in the air!!!

Ice Cream Cone Cookies

I had so much fun making the elephant cookies that I made another attempt to practice frosting with Royal Icing. I think these cookies turned out pretty good. I ended up taking them a Girl's Night Out to share with some of my friends.

Elephant Cookies

I was asked to help make cookies for my cousin's baby shower. It was my first time frosting with Royal Icing, as you can probably see... other than the imperfections with the frosting I think they turned out really cute!
The ear was made from fondant and cut out with a heart shaped cookie cutter.
