Christmas 2014

 December has been a blur!
It truly has!
The whole Christmas season kind of just...sneaked up on me!
I don't feel like I made a lot of decorated cookies this year...
Though I actually did...2 dozen for each client (six)...a dozen for our family get-together...plus a dozen for a giveaway.
So that was a grand total of 14 dozen this month.
I know, not a lot for some of you busy bee bakers out there...but it was enough for me during the holidays, ha!  I did something new (to me) this year.  I attempted this wreath that I found on Pinterest and I apologize...I can't give the original poster credit as I couldn't find the link!  So to whoever shared the original post on Pinterest...thank-you for your inspiration!
 Then I attempted SugarBelle's poinsettia platter.  I was pretty happy with the results for a first attempt!  Everyone who received one seemed to like it.
 Then I did a couple wintery themed platters.
Mittens, snowflakes, and some holiday greetings.

 This green (and red/white) themed set, I took to our family celebration.  They were kind of a last minute set.  I didn't really have a plan...I kind of just winged it and had fun!
Generally, it's my custom cookies that really "take it out of me".
But this year, I did SO MUCH "other" holiday baking...that it was those that really zapped my energy!  But you can't skip the family favorites at Christmas time!  I'll be doing a post on those later.  I hope each and every one of you have a very Merry CHRISTmas and a Happy New Year!
Here's to a bright and successful 2015!
