It has been a while, probably one of the longest stretches without sharing here. Things have been busy with school and life, and I just didn’t have the time to create. I managed to make a batch of sugar cookies for Christmas though, and wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2024!
These cookies include a few of my favorite Christmas designs. I’ll share the links to the original creators of some of the designs, the cookie cutters, as well as my recipes and basic cookie decorating tutorials, below.
I also finally organized all my favorite gel colors into one spot, using this nail polish organizer. I have more gel colors than pictured here, and have those organized into boxes, but thought it would be handy to have all the ones I use on a regular basis, in one spot.
If you’re interested in a list of my gel color favorites, feel free to let me know in the comment section, and I’ll compile a list with links.
I used my sugar cookie recipe. You can find it here (just use the sugar cookie recipe, not the strawberry coulis).
