To get myself on the right track, I decided on this mantra : JUST DO IT! I spend way too much time thinking about doing instead of just doing. What did I accomplish since my new awakening? I finally baked a batch of gingerbread cookies that was on my ($#@*!!) to do list. Okay I admit, baking cookies is not quite the epic accomplishment in life, but have you had a home baked gingerbread cookie??…soft and chewy, gently spiced with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and my fav spice : the lovely NUTMEG. Yummy-mmy
Take a look-see at my fabulously decorated cookies...Martha will be sooo jealous when she sees these! I half expect that she'll be asking me to be on her tv show to share my secrets...but I don't know..should I? If you want my autograph now, just shoot me a note and I'll be happy to oblige. Oh and of course this is a limited offer. So hurry..I could be famous any day now![recipe is from the Joy of Baking site]

Although I have no projects to post, I found this wonderful Japanese sewing site with several sort of 'ezines' with projects for kawaii aprons, bags, pouches, pin cushions, doo dads for your hair, booties, embroidery, and more. The colors in every project are wonderfully happy in tones of reds, blues, pinks, turquoise, greens, yellows....so much to drool over!
