My Attempt at Baking for the Holidays PART II

So I've had gingerbread dough sitting in the fridge for a couple of days trying to work up the energy to make some cookies. So yesterday I tackled half the dough and here's what came out. *The following pictures are rated R due to violence against pastry* Oh, and don't bother telling me I'm deranged...I already know.

My Attempt at Baking for the Holidays

Because this is my blog and I can, I'm posting my foray into holiday baking:

These were for a party my dear friend Erica was having.

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Coconut Icing

What they were "supposed" to look like:

What mine ended up looking like (still mighty tasty tho!):

And I made some candycane cookies from my mom's recipe. Of course I couldn't just stick with boring red and white cookies so I busted out my new neon food coloring and let 'er rip!

Some Recent and Not So Recent Works

Long post. Brace yourself!

Older ATC stuff:

My husband liked this one so much he kept it:

These were done waiting in the airport on my way to/from Arizona:

And some random ones:

These were notecards for a vampire swap. I almost didn't want to send them I like them so much.

This one has the definition of Vampyre written on the white paper:

And now for some newer stuff:

This was an order for 12 note cards. I took individual photos but for some reason they all have a yellow tinge to them. And since they've been sent off....moral of the story is check pictures before mailing items! Some are missing because the photos are already on my blog.

Rubber Stamp Nirvana!

I recently ordered stamps from a couple different companies. I was happy with everything I received but one company BLEW ME AWAY. I'm a sucker for grab bags. I like surprises. For the most part, I'm lucky if I can use 50% of the stamps I recieve (and that's a high estimate). But that is not the story with the stamps I received from Sideshow Stamps. I opted for the Macho Grab Bag which is $18.99 and includes 30 unmounted stamps (I also bought a voodoo doll stamp because it was too cute for words!). So, I'm going through the stamps and I'm like "Oh! I can use this!" and "This is awesome!" I mean, there were dinosaurs, skulls, words, big foot/monkey, cool little accent stamps...the list goes on! Of course everyone won't get the same combination, but that's half the fun. All the stamps on the site are amazing and unusual. PLUS I thought it was an awesome idea that the company stamped their name on the back of the stamp. It's so much easier that way when you look at the stamp and say, "Hey this is awesome. Where'd I get it and can I get more?" So if you haven't realized by now that I'm really impressed with Sideshow Stamps I will say, I'm really impressed with Sideshow Stamps. Go there now and buy lots of stuff!
