Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween. Some years I have more energy for it than others, and this year was a low energy year, but I did celebrate with my family yesterday--at our annual Pumpkin Carving Extravangza! Ok, well, we all carve pumpkins on the floor of the Kohls' living room. I don't have pics, as my sister and nephews have them, but I do have something to share--

COOKIES! I used Stampin' Up!'s new Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps to make Halloween cookies. After 14 year old Nathan ate one, he declared, "Good." He then noticed the Jack-o-lantern impression. Go figure. I didn't go all fancy and bag them up or anything. The top one is one of the sugar cookies and the bottom two are Shortbread. Both recipes came from the insert provided by Stampin' Up! I found it easy to make them, especially with a cookie scoop to make similar sized cookie balls. After scooping them, I just slipped the silicone stamp on the wooden handle and then :

I was so proud! I made a nice looking cookie!

Then, reality struck as I took the first batch out of the oven:

Yep. That's the batch on the floor. Bummer. The first ones weren't ones that were edible due to my clumsiness, so I had to keep trying! The final results were pretty good.

Happy Stamping!



  1. Yum!! Those look fabulous! Bummer about the ones on the floor, though.

  2. Awww, that's too bad! Have a dog that would enjoy?

  3. They look sooooo good! Too bad you lost a batch to the floor1

  4. So something I would have done (dropped them on the floor). But the rest look sooo much better than the ones I made. Yum!


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
