Fresh Baked Sugar Cookie Ornaments

I just finished these Sugar Cookie Ornaments. I decided to go with a more retro look with Aqua and Pink. I've even lightened up Gingerbread man a little. They are on there way to a Shop in my local mall that carries artist made treats. I hope they will all find homes for the Holidays! If they don't check back and I will list them in my Etsy shop. I'm putting the Christmas Tree up today. I promised I'd put the Tree up when we got our first Snow. Well, it's just a dusting but it's still Snowing!

Welcome to the Himalayas!

Ok that's the line used in the movie Monsters Inc. Does anyone remember when Mike and Sulley were banished to the land of the Abominable Snowman? He served them lemon snow cones.
Yeti or Abominable Snowman is a magical ape like creature from the Himalayan Mountain region. So why not add him into the Christmas mix! The Rudolph movies did!
My Yeti is hanging out here if you'd like a closer look. Don't worry he doesn't bite no teeth!

Glittered Pine Cone Ornaments

I'm lucky to have some wonderful vintage pine cone people ornaments. These Elves and Snowmen are my version. I made some similar last year so I thought I'd make more. I feel like an Elf myself right now! I saw they were taking away the last of the Halloween stuff at the store today. They were replaced with Candy Canes. I'm just not ready need more time! Now I'm off to paint and glitter well you know! Wishing you all a wonderful and creative day!
