The Cool2Craft Creative Play theme for December is “Give Yourself a Gift.” You give to everyone else during the holidays and all year long. Time to give yourself a treat! Make something, go somewhere, do something that’s just for you and photograph it! Then share it with us – post it on the Cool2Craft Creative Play blog on the Hive. Anything goes! I’m going to run with this theme and craft every day in December. I’ll be posting tutorials and videos as well as making some kits available at the Marketplace. Join me on Cool2Craft for 31 days of blissful, healing, creative play and give yourself the gift of play, too! [Candace J.]
My daughter and I do Christmas cookies in a big way. The star of our cookie trays are the decorated sugar cookies. We take weeks deciding on a theme and selecting which cookie cutters we’ll use. Rudolph is always present. He is the hands-down fan favorite! We spend two days on just these cookies. It’s crazy, but we love it. Jan is the designer, I’m the laborer. Her character faces are always adorable, but I work faster with the icing, so we complement one another.
If that’s not your thing, or if you just plain don’t have time, I have good news for you! You can still decorate cookies with a couple of simple things you can get at the grocery store – And the family will love them!
