One year ago today....

One year ago today, I attempted to make decorated cookies for the first time. I am a researcher by nature and I spent countless hours reading about how to make the best rolled out cookies and how to make and work with royal icing. 

I am so thankful to Bridget at Bake at 350, Karen at Karen's Cookies and Mirian at Sweetopia for sharing their wonderful step by step tutorials! and to Callye at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle for her endless inspiration of beautiful cookies, she is just AMAZING!! thank you ladies for all your continued help along the way! :)

I made these Texas cookies for my friends Tricia and John for their visit to Texas. I was hoping it would persuade them to move here...and it worked!! :) I still remember the huge mess I made trying to figure out how to use this icing, but what fun! I have blue and red fingers for days! :)

 The rest is history as I continue to learn this craft... :)

I have come along way and have a long way to go, but I am having fun along the way! :)

Thank you to all my friends and family who have encouraged me! :)
