It’s no secret to those who know me, or those who have been getting my newsletters for a while, that I love fall! I can’t wait to fill this blog up with fun fall cookies because they’re definitely my favorite. But since I’ve kinda sorta been missing in action all summer, I figured I’d better at least nod towards summer. Briefly. And then we’re moving on to pumpkins and leaves, ok?
Apparently I forgot how to take pictures over the summer. Sorry these are so dark and shadowy. I think I need a refresher course. Miiiiike!?
Wilton came out with this fun new set of cutters over the summer.
I didn’t get them until summer was almost over, but they were still fun to decorate.
I love the sunglasses.
I’ve really been wanting some larger sunglasses. The ones we have are teeny tiny, and the company who makes them disappeared off the face of the earth this summer, so we really needed a replacement.
The margarita glass is a cute size and shape.
Can you see the “Heat Green” disco dust on that margarita glass? It’s so hard to photograph. And along with that pesky fact that I forgot how to take pictures over the summer… I didn’t get a very good picture. Maybe this angle is better?
The flip flop is cute. I like it’s round-y-ness. (Yeah, that’s a word alright).
Here’s a pink set. Because pink is fun.
I liked how the sunglasses turned out in this one. I used some white non pareils from the Jumbo Rainbow Non Pareils as accents on the glasses. I pulled a bunch out of the jar with my accent tweezers, and then looked for two big ones and four smaller ones. They all vary in size slightly, but it works out well for stuff like this. The jumbo non pareils come in handy for so many things.
These were fun cookies to decorate. I’ll be excited to decorate more next summer– or maybe during the winter if I need a little summer back in my life!
So anyway, I feel bad that I totally neglected the blog this summer. I hope I still have some readers out there! I have 3 school-age kids and one preschooler, so I decided to take some time off and enjoy them this summer. We enjoyed swimming lessons, camping trips, family reunions, and lazy days reading books. It was a good summer and flew by.
How did you spend your summer months? Let me know in the comments section and I’ll randomly pick 5 of you to win a set of the Wilton Summer cookie cutters. Contest ends Monday night (Sept. 12) at midnight– wherever you are. Thanks for sticking with me!! Hope you had a great summer! (Or winter if you’re in Australia…)
