Sugar Cookies

Okay, I'm not very good at this craft blogging thing. I don't have a whole lot of time to make crafts, so I don't post very often. And even when I do craft, I often don't think to post. Sorry!

I'm going to try to get better. And probably expand the blog a bit to include things like reading and writing and such. I'm a huge English nerd; I love to write, and I love reading. Right now I'm really into the classics (let's face it, most authors nowadays just don't put as much time into writing as they used to. Now it's all about meeting deadlines.). Hopefully most of you will still want to read my blog even when it's a post about books instead of crafting. If not, well, you don't have to read. But hopefully it will get me to post more!

Last summer for Fourth of July I made some super cute star-shaped sugar cookies. Well, the frosting recipe I used from Our Best Bites wasn't my favorite in taste, but it did make the cookies very pretty. I brought some of the cookies over to my family, and my dad LOVED them. So, I made him some of his very own for his birthday a few weeks ago!

My dad drag races, so I thought it would be cute to give him race car cookies! I love how the flame designs turned out.

I had planned to blog today about some donut muffins I made today (got the idea here), but when I uploaded the pictures, my computer freaked out, so I don't have any pictures! :( They were pretty good, but I'm thinking I'll tweak the recipe a bit the next time I try them. They were more dense than I was hoping for.

With resolutions to blog more often, hopefully you'll all be hearing from me again soon!
